New Improved Nokia N95 coming soon in America

Nokia N95, a strong contender to Apple iPhone, is coming in American markets with a bang. Nokia announced, the optimized version of the popular Nokia N95 will carry a feature to support 850/1900 MHz (HSDPA)high speed downlink packet access. With that, high-speed connectivity will be possible even on Mobile phone which equals or even exceeds the speed of home aDSL connection at some point. So, i would suggest people to try N95 since it has now 3.5G standard. Some Asian and European markets already have N95 with 3G standard where they could use the video telephone services at ease. But with this new 3.5G protocol based Nokia N95 targetted for America's market, it seems obvious that there will be some impact very soon on mobile phone markets.

Features-wise, Nokia N95 comes bundled with 5 megapixel camera Carl Zeiss optics lens,one-click access to Flickr and Vox,8GB of internal flash memory, a 3D graphics processor with ability to play all latest N-Gage 3D games, GPS, and a 3 inch QVGA screen.

Note: HSDPA, is an abbreviated form of High-Speed Downlink Packet Access which is a new protocol for mobile telephone data tranmission. It is known as a 3.5G (G stands for generation) technology. Essentially, the standard will provide download speeds on a mobile phone equivalent to an ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) line in a home, removing any limitations placed on the use of your phone by a slow connection.

Hi Yaya, it's one step up to 3G standard.

1G-totally analog based
2G-Digital concept
2.5G- with internet appraoch
3G- with advanced modulation technique like DPSK, QPSK etc.
3.5G- I don't know

Will you plz clarify the different features of 3.5G in more details.And as long as I know HSDPA is Japanese technolgy while Europe and America are using TDMA and CDMA technology.And even AT & T had announced that, seeing the high demand of tdma and cdma, the next generations will be developed on the basis of these two technique. I am totally confused, may be i wrong too. Plz clarify it.

physically,
1G - were cab-sized, hardly portable
2G- truly a wireless phone
2.5G - fancy wireless phone with spices
3 G - limited to some places around the world, high connectivity for realtime video sharing..

3.5 - it's still prototype for me, haven't used/seen them working but just getting know how their protocols work. as fast as home aDSL network :)
If this beast did outcry successfully, home router will be replaced.. just my judgement(guff). again :)

ametya said...

Uh, I was wrong. HSDPA is not a Japanese Technology, I got confused, rather it is a latest technology to support high speed of packet data to make internet access brillient.

Navin said...

That's true

High Speed Packet Access (HSPA)is Based on UMTS protocol. It is divided into two standars: HSDPA (downlink) and HSUPA (uplink). HSDPA can also be called "3.5G" and has theoritical data transfer rate of around 10 Mbps. So with this standard multimedia and streaming vedios will be main focus. I dont think there are many service provider for this standard but the most of new high end phones are HSDPA capble.

To folks out here in Nepal its a distant dream for now.

Navin said...

even if someone brings it(unlocked) to Nepal, it'll be used only for calling, ..nothing more than that ..

minus GPS..
minus HSDPA..
and soo..

I agree with you Speed bro

ametya said...

I also agree with Navin. NTC has launced wcdma-tdma based 3G standard but it is listening that the standard is being used as like that of 2G or 2.5G, minusing all the features that it has. We know, it's not the standard's fault rather the provider who service it.
AND I don't think 3.5G is a distant dream becuase सपनालाई साकार बनाउन हाम्रो NTC माहिर छ भलै त्यो सपनाको स नै किन नहोस् यो आउछ नै, र नाक गजक्क पारेर फुलाउने छ NTC ले 3.5G पनि ल्याउन सफल भयौ भन्दै ।

Ametya Ji, that's the bitter reality.
Because, I never believed NT's announcement and when they were actually bragging about their new GPRS service launch, I was surfing net on my home desktop though my GPRS enabled mobile phone(making it as a wireless modem). The GPRS serviced I used belonged to SpiceNepal's MeroMobile and I've given comprehensive tutorial on my old blog regarding 'how to surf Internet on desktop using GPRS enabled cell phone. '
If you like to see that thread, it's here http://infotechnepal.wordpress.com/2006/10/31/how-to-connect-your-pc-to-internet-using-meromobile-gprs/
And, I firmly believe, all my Nepalese friends using GPRS of MeroMobile have been greatly benefited by my tutorial. More than 10,000 people have read that thread alone.

Well, sorry I bounded out of topic. My verdict: SAY NO TO NT(C), (please don't think I'm endorsing SPICE NEPAL, I'm no way affiliated to them, I came to this decision, because, I started using NT's PostPaid and later I had to switch to MeroMobile. This is just my mere perspective as an end user of both services)

May be their(NT) landline is okay and been longtime, but wireless service sucks bigtime..
