    iPhone 3G vs N95 8GB?

    They're the same price for me, both hardware and data plans.

    I've been a Nokia fan (have E62 and 6620) but have been fed up with the power and end button placement that leads me to shut the phone off or end the call with my cheek. I like Nokia sound quality though, which is tempered a bit by the mics always picking up a LOT of background noise.

    I don't take pictures, I might use the camera but that's not a swaying point for me.

    Main interest I have in the iPhone is visual voicemail. Any pros/cons on either that I should consider?
    The word 'Pentaband' means '5 Bands', from the Greek word 'pente' meaning '5'. For a phone to be pentaband it has to support 5 bands. If the phone has AWS support, it doesn't automatically mean that it is pentaband.

    Don't send me PMs for questions that can be asked publicly.

    the main interest is visual voicemail? i would think much more things than that. but for the iphone, the web browsing experience is the selling point. the big screen is the advantage.

    the n95 is much more capable device, has tons more features than the iphone, and is better to use one-handed. search the forum cause this comparison has been discussed to death. i vote n95 8GB any day over an iphone.
    Current Device: Nexus One

    The only cons i have with visual voicemail is once your accustomed to it there is no going back to regular voicemail.

    The N95 is near perfect, it is just about the best non-touchscreen phone one can get in the current market, until the N96 comes out that is.

    The iPhone both 2G and 3G have the best finger touch interfaces in the market and aside from the missing Java and Flash support, practically one of the best mobile browsers in the market. With the 3G model it adds HSDPA broadband, AGPS and Microsoft Exchange Server support. It definitely has features to appeal to the masses of both casual users and tech junkies alike, but unfortunately it doesn't have everything.

    Not to say that there is a single phone out there that does have everything, but in my opinion phones like the N95 come closer than the 3G iPhone does in that respect, with the 5MP camera, the ability to take SD-DVD quality video, the non-signal dependent GPS, the ability to send and receive MMS, and the plethora of other features that all S60 devices are capable of doing.

    The ability to run Joiku Spot for instance, thus turning your 3G connection into a WiFi Hotspot (with a 3G and Wifi Capable S60 3rd Edition phone of course), is one of the more unique offerings, though I think there's a version for WimMo devices as well called WMWifiRouter.

    As an interesting aside in the following video clip, Howard Chui provides his opinion to a Canadian news show about various upcoming devices available in Canada, including the iPhone 3G. I found the ending part rather classic.

    Nokia N95.

    Since everybody has an iphone this is pretty much history repeating itself does anybody remember when everybody had the razr. Just think of you having the same ringtone as that person does and the next thing you know five or six people are pulling out iphones on the bus etc etc.

    I use my N95 over iPhone. Mainly because I can use it as a 3G modem for my macbook.

    i was just about to make a topic like this, Im in a very similar situation.

    I am not upgrade eligible until Sept. 26th. I can get a new N95-4 for about $455 shipped, and if I were to buy an iphone now, the 16gb will run me $499+a two year agreement and the data plan.

    I have the media max unlimited right now, so I would be spending like $25 more a month for the data plan and texting.

    Can I get insurance on the N95 from ATT?

    Is there a limit to the length of videos you can make with the N95?

    It's not the consumers fault that Jobs slapped a 3G on the end of the product name... What should they have called it?? the Iphone Improved??? or how about the Iphone with GPS, 3G and Enterprise Support

    I'm in a similar boat... I lost my N95 on Friday night... Apparently I should be able to just hit 3 up, they'll waiver what's left on my contract if I resign up for another 24 months...

    or I could pay out the rest of my contract and hit up an iPhone..

    The N95's undoubtably a better phone, but it's the Exchange/ActiveSync and the quality of the better MP3 player in the iPhone that I'm most interested in...

    Step 1: buy iPhone 3G
    Step 2: sell iPhone 3G for $1000 (or more)
    Step 3: use profit and buy N95 8GB and an N810

    There's a 1 hour limit for videos. Typically 1 hour is 1 GB in size at high quality.

    I just found out the N95 has TV-out! That's definitely a deal sealer for me.

    Any way to hook up a full sized USB keyboard to it?

    USB No, Bluetooth yes... The iGo/Dell rebranded foldaway keyboards are popular
