The great Nokia N95 remix

Yes, it’s definitely odd… But it’s also definitely cool!

Although it’s not unusual for Nokia to release revised or updated products with a different name (e.g. N61, N62, and N61i) it appears that Nokia decided to remix the original N95, european version, into two new products without renaming it.

First, the Nokia N95, US version:
– UMTS/HSDPA on US 1900/850 MHz (no european 2100 MHz)
– Double the RAM (128 MB)
– Better battery capacity (BL6-F, 1200 mAh)
– Revised back casing without camera lens cover
– Revised bumpy multimedia buttons

Second, the Nokla N95, 8 GB european version:
– 8 GB internal flash storage
– No micro-SD card slot
– Black finish
– Larger screen (based on my careful analysis of the FCC documents)
– Revised wider front casing with smaller D-pad area
– Double the RAM (128 MB), to be confirmed
– Better battery capacity (BL-6F, 1200 mAh), to be confirmed
– Revised back casing without camera lens cover
– Revised bumpy multimedia buttons

The verdict: I’m not pleased about losing the camera lens cover, but I’m excited about the additional RAM and the US 3G bands.

Now let’s hope Nokia combines the above two versions and offers an 8 GB US version – I’d take the larger screen and 8 GB internal flash storage even if it resulted in losing the micro-SD card slot.

What about you?
