Nokia N95 8GB NAM Ships
Nokia this morning at last began selling the N95 8GB NAM, the North American model of its high-end smartphone. Like the NAM adaptation of the original N95, the 8GB handset adds specific support for 3G Internet access over HSDPA networks in the US through AT&T as well as Canadian providers Rogers and Fido. In addition to the faster download speed, the phone also carries over the larger 2.8-inch LCD, upgraded black trim, and 8GB of permanent storage that define the newer phone in Europe.
The 5-megapixel camera, true GPS, and Wi-Fi are also intact from both the original N95 and its 8GB counterpart. Nokia states that the NAM edition officially sells for $799 at its flagship Chicago and New York retail stores but lists the device at $779 through its online site, a price expected to translate to third-party resellers.
