Nokia N95 Superphone: US Launch Today?

Illustration for article titled 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.

I was always a Nokia fan for years until I was stuck with the 6101, which has to be the chintziest phone ever made. I returned it a month after I purchased it as the screen faded on the right side and T-Mobile gave me another which three months later the case cracked in cold weather, poor, poor quality material, chintzy.

I am amazed that Nokia would chance to cheapen its image and brand with that model and then stick the client with a $150.00 fee for it.

Shame on Nokia.

Thank goodness HTC made its debut about a month after I was into the 6101 and there was a solution at hand.

Too bad Nokia did not look for quality solutions instead of making cheap products to sell at an inflated price.

Nokia will have to produce a great phone for me to go back to them or HTC will have to insult their clients with a chintzy phone model.
