Nokia N95

Playing around with a proto N95 today. When you're not browsing via W-Lan, on HSDPA networks its pretty damn quick. I like the new media menu a lot and as a nod to S/E, they've added an option of animating menu items and changing display properties(grid/list/horseshoe/carousel)... there seems to be a lot of personalisation options in this phone and you can see which menu items have recently been accessed... not sure which ones will make it into the production models.

Two of the most immediate things noticeable are it's lightness (it does not weigh much at all) and the big 2.6" screen display. I've not tried the camera yet, but I'm told the image processing software has improved (for better artifact reduction)...
