Today Nokia issued a press-release announcing the U.S. version of the Nokia N95. Rumors about the U.S. edition have been circulating for a while.
Along with North American 3G compatibility, this new Nokia N95 retains all the award-winning functionality of the existing Nokia N95, while adding a number of other notable product upgrades including assisted GPS (A-GPS) for faster navigational fixes while using the included enhanced Nokia Maps application. There is also a full 124MB of operational RAM memory to complement the included 1 GB microSD memory card and the 160MB internal memory, and a higher capacity battery for extended operating time. Other feature highlights of the N95 include 2-way slide concept, integrated GPS functionality with maps, 5 megapixel camera and DVD-like quality video, 2.6" QVGA 16 million color display, 3D graphics, built-in stereo speakers offering a 3D stereo effect, standard 3.5 mm audio jack, support for compatible microSD cards and mini USB for convenient data transfer.
The new Nokia N95 is expected to start shipping in September to a growing number of independent retailers in major markets including New York, Los Angeles, Miami and San Francisco, as well as the Nokia Flagship Stores in New York and Chicago.
The suggested retail price is $699.
