White Plains, NY -- Nokia announced today that the new Nokia N95 with support for North American High Speed Download Packet Access (HSDPA) networks has begun shipping across the United States. The Nokia N95 retains the award-winning functionality of the current Nokia N95, while gaining a number of other notable product upgrades including Assisted GPS (A-GPS), increased memory, and a new battery with extended operating time. The power of this cutting edge technology means that the new Nokia N95 can deliver the most desirable set of mobile features available today.
Along with today's availability of the new Nokia N95, Sling Media is also announcing the availability of its innovative SlingPlayer Mobile for Symbian OS software on this powerful multimedia platform. Representing the ultimate in time and place-shifting, the combination of Slingbox hardware and the SlingPlayer Mobile software means that consumers can enjoy their home television programming, including live broadcasts or content recorded to a Digital Video Recorder, from virtually anywhere that North American HSDPA or WiFi networks are available. The high-speed connectivity and large, crisp display of the Nokia N95, combined with the new SlingPlayer Mobile software, allows a train, hotel, street corner or almost anyplace else to be the next best thing to a home theatre experience.
Whether for finding a new restaurant in the next town, or finding the best way to a customer's office on the other side of the country, the Nokia N95's integrated A-GPS functionality with Nokia Maps makes being lost a thing of the past. The included Nokia Maps software allows for mapping and routing in over 150 countries and has support for full turn-by-turn satellite navigation in over 30 countries -- the most comprehensive map coverage offered on any mobile device. While supplies last, Nokia N95 buyers at select retailers will receive a free one-month navigation license, a city guide of their choice and additional maps already preloaded on a 1GB memory card -- a $50 value.
While a 5-megapixel camera and DVD-quality video recorder makes the Nokia N95 among the most capable mobile imaging devices ever produced, the new Nokia N95 recognizes that the memories worth capturing are memories that are made to be shared. Thanks to its 3G prowess, the Nokia N95 can take the largest images and video files and then quickly and effortlessly upload them to the user's sharing site of choice. So instead of those important moments being forever locked in a purse or pocket, they can now be made readily available for friends and family to enjoy -- virtually as they are happening.
"Already seen as a revolutionary multimedia device, the enhanced North American version of the Nokia N95 will allow people to truly enjoy and benefit from the convergence of mobility and the Internet," said Bill Plummer, Vice President, Multimedia, Nokia North America. "Advanced multimedia devices like the Nokia N95 are allowing consumers to take those things that matter to them most wherever they go -- this truly reflects Nokia's long-term commitment to connecting people around the world."
The new Nokia N95, with an MSRP of $699, is now available at the Nokia Flagship Stores in New York and Chicago, online at http://www.nseries.com, and through wireless and electronics retailers in major markets as well as many online channels. In addition to the new Nokia N95, the Nokia Nseries portfolio of devices currently available in the United States includes the Nokia N73, Nokia N76 and the Nokia N800 Internet Tablet.
