Should You Get The N95?

Nokia N95

The N95 has been out for almost 5 months now. The price has fallen considerably from somewhere around 650€ to about 490€ nowadays, sim-free in India. The firmware has matured, AGPS has been added which has improved GPS performance to a large extent, however they are still a few minor bugs with the current v12 firmware but nothing substantial. In this write-up I and Jamal Abid talk about why should you get the N95 or abstain from doing so.

The Nokia N95 Classic – Black!

 Nokia N95 Classic - Black!

I have always thought that a black N95 would be awesome, however the styling on the Nokia N95 8GB has disappointed me a little. I don’t really like the smaller Menu & Multimedia keys and the lack of cover for the camera. For those (including me) who only want it to be black yet with the same shape here is a solution. The phone looks great, but protruding silver at places completely mars it at times. I’m hoping for an all black housing soon, specially the keypad!

Tagged! Five Blogs I Read!

I got tagged by Symbian60.mobi, which is a German blog, as part of a blogger’s game. This one is about naming 5 blogs one reads and each one has to be from a different country then the people who’re tagged, tag others! I was tagged on the 19th but got a little stuck with the translators, anyway here goes:

Rules:

– Name 5 blogs in different countries that you read
– Tag 5 bloggers

Blogs I read:

– Jan van Iperen‘s Nokia N95 Blog (Netherlands)

Mark Guim‘s The Nokia Blog (USA)

Michael Hell‘s The Nokian Blog (Austria)

Stefan Constantinescu on IntoMobile (Finland)

Teo’s Symbian-Freak (Croatia)

I sure did want to add more, specially Symbian-Guru, however those were the five blogs that first came to my mind.

Nokia N95 – 8GB Becomes Official!

Nokia N95 - 8GB

Another FCC posting had led to the N95 8GB becoming official! There are a few design tweaks with the screen possibly becoming larger. The multi-media keys have become a little elevated. The microSD card slot has most likely given way to 8GB of internal flash storage. The camera’s shutter has been reworked to allow space for a 1200 mAh battery and there will no longer be a protective cover for the camera.

The Shutter Sound Is Mute!

cCam 

Finally! I’m glad to say now we can finally turn the flash and the sound completely off while taking a picture from our S60 3rd edition phones. Chua Welic has released a freeware which will allow us to do exactly that!  

cCam (pronounced “see-cam”) is a camera capture program that runs on S60 phones, allows us to click pictures with no shutter sound and no flash light! It saves the captured images to default memory card image directory.

It also features an option to set the focus range and a link to take us to the gallery.

DOWNLOAD! Version – 1.01

Note: While testing on the Nokia N95 i’m glad to say there was no sound, however the red led does light up for a micro second!
