It really comes down to the features you expect the phone to have. Many of the features that you would think the iPhone has, it doesn't. Although the iPhone has a cool interface, it lacks some essential features (3G, good camera, video recording, copy n paste, flash, etc).

The Nokia N95 8GB has the following features:

- 2.8-inch screen
- 8GB of integrated memory
- 5MP camera and an improved battery life
- Doubles as a navigation device since it bundles GPS along with a map database encompassing over 100 countries
- Allows users to create, edit and upload content directly to the web
- Compatible with 50/1900 MHz HSDPA wireless data network found on AT&T in the U.S.
- It will begin shipping in North America in Q1 of 2008 and will be priced at $749

Anyone know any more info on the phone? Specifically the pros and cons?

Talking Re: Looking for your opinion on N95 Vs iPhone!

Even though the N95 isnt a touch Interface, I would much likely compare the S60 Touch over the Iphone.

Maybe you can see what i mean with this idea:


See 5 Reasons, why S60 Touch Interface is better than iPhone


No. 5 - The S60 smartphone software offers the opportunity to develop devices with a variety of input methods, whether it is a touch screen with a traditional keypad, touch screen with a qwerty keyboard or touch screen alone, supporting both finger or stylus optimized input, in addition to the range of access options that already exist today. The iPhone is limited to finger input only.

No. 4 - S60 Touch interface supports Tactile feedback which is more like force feedback. So when the user taps or touches the screen there is a physical pulse and feedback, this will be great for gaming. The iPhone lacks this feature.

No. 3 - S60 Touch will be the first mobile software platform to offer Web Browser integrated with Flash Video which allows people to view on the go Flash-enabled Web sites. The iPhone has support for YouTube via a separate application but the inbuilt Safari browser lacks Flash support.

No. 2 - The S60 interface is licensed to multiple companies (Samsung, Panasonic and Siemens) and is not only limited to Nokia. This gives the user a wider choice of handsets.

No. 1 - Series 60 is the most widely used smartphone OS with 100 million S60 devices cumulatively shipped by April 2007. Nokia developer forum has thousands of registered developers and hundreds of companies making applications for the S60 interface. Development kit for the S60 Touch will ship with UI Accelerator toolkit to allow device manufacturers to develop rapidly and easily impressive graphical effects and new types of interactions with the light, proximity and distance sensors. Currently there are tons of applications and games available for the S60 interface.


So, Nokia and Series 60 = N95.

N95 = part of the subject demonstrated abouve WITHOUT the touch-screen part.

Iphone = Waste of money for a glam phone that one day everyone will have and you will get tired of.

So my advice is for you to get the N95, or wait for the S60 Touch.

If you wait for the S60 Touch, then you will have something more accurate to compare with the iphone.

And of course, The Iphone is dirt when compared to the S60 Touch and its UI.
