Nokia N95 Superphone: US Launch Today?

Really? Saturday? Yes today — or at least very soon — the N95 superphone could be launching as early as tonight. The signs: Last week, Nokia started handing out European variants of the N95 Superphone to US journalists. Today, we have tips from readers claiming that that Nokia is going to be launching the model from their US flagship stores in NY and Chicago for $750.

That's good. Because I have one here, and it is the most powerful handset I've ever used. Period. I'd called it fat, but I guess that makes me a chubby chaser. It's imperfect but I really like it.

I've had mine for a few days. Typically, we'd spit out a review within 24 hours. Not the N95. I get the sense that the complicated device will require another few days before I unlock its secrets. But for now, on this Saturday, I think I can manage to make some headway without the normal weekday distractions holding me back. For now, a gallery, which I'll post in a bit.
