Nokia N95 Updated or Upgraded

A new firmware upgrade is available for the Nokia N95

First we’ll have a taste of the Changes in the new firmware :

  • New Welcome application.
  • New camera software and tweaks from the 8GB model – FAR faster shot to shot time, with ‘Processing image message’ during any delays. I suspect the image processing algorithms have changed too, to remove some of the remaining artificial edge enhancement in the v12 firmware.
  • Long press on camera button launches camera if shutter is open.
  • New My Nokia SMS tips and mobile web portal system.
  • Demand paging (for ROM applications) with 30 plus MB free RAM after booting.
  • Search 4.0 integration on standby screen.
  • Old multimedia menu still there, i.e. it’s not the new style.
  • N-Gage game previews (FIFA, Asphalt) and portal/shortcut to upcoming N-Gage client, as in N81 and N95 8GB.
  • Nokia Music Store client, although the store server hasn’t been updated to handle the N95 yet – maybe this’ll happen later today.
  • Keypress bug gone.
  • Music player has a new visualisation and also remembers where you got to in a podcast, so you can pick it up again later on.
  • No auto-screen rotation, looks like I was wrong predicting this, so we need Samir’s RotateMe after all – someone please help him get this signed ASAP!
  • Assorted other minor tweaks, along the same lines as the N95 8GB, with video ringtones and theme animations.

N95 NAM Black and 1900Mhz 3G Power!

Why is Nokia so interested in the American Market? This is yet another US Edition N95. But since it’s based on the N95 Classic and not the newer N95-3 it seems to have been largely ignored. It even uses the same old 950mA battery to go with it! Bummer!! The only major difference seem to be that it has a black back body and is also optimized to work with the North American Network – hence the name.

The N95 NAM’s camera has 5 mega pixels of clarity, featuring a 2.6″ display and Carl Zeiss optics. Shoot in DVD-like quality video up to 30 frames per second. Continue reading “N95 NAM Black and 1900Mhz 3G Power!”
