In their initial press release, Nokia called their N95 "what computers have become." It wasn't just a new phone, or even a new smartphone. The N95 was the evolution of the computer.
In short, we were reading PR poetry. And as it is known, there is only one way to counter PR poetry: dorky tech reviewer poetry.
So for this week's Frankenreview, we decided to abandon the traditional pullquotes and call in some favors to our fellow N95 reviewers.
Hit the jump to read—in Haiku form—what GigaOM, PCWorld, LAPTOP, MobileBurn and, of course, Gizmodo, had to say about the Nokia N95.
*This score does not represent the official PC World ranking, and is instead based upon reviewer Melissa Perenson's Melissometer(tm).
