By all means, but the N95 is by no means bulky!

As I mentioned, it does not come across as a good overall package - its a lot of things crammed into one device. It would be useful for a user who is primarily using the phone parts and occassionally uses the other apps - this has been the story of all Nokia 'Communicator' or other Smartphones.

I'm a windows pocket pc user, not a Nokia user.

Not really. Smartphone/Pocket PC and other integrated device users are used to shorter battery life - its a compromise, but one that is acceptable because the additional utility makes up for it.

To be frank, the battery life is just about acceptable if you do not use WiFi and/or Data and/or GPS for long periods.

thanks guys for all the inputs. i feel that it is overpriced. 7MP camera costs 10k, so camera is not the real USP. maybe GPS, but do we have the maps for Indian cities and country side???

This price is only 2K less than what has been quoted in the posts above.. Also is he offering the warranty also with this.. A phone like this with so many features, it is necessary to have a warranty.. Just in case..

You can get cameras for cheaper rates... Can you make a call with your 7mp camera and will it seriously help you out if you are lost??
Seriously speaking i am not looking at buying this phone because of he camera.. its just an added advantage.

Yeah, you can take pics of where all you've been, and put them together. And I once tried the other bit, got to see how the inside of my ear looked.

Yeah, that's a hard lesson I had to learn first hand. I bought N73 on launch week for 25K from a Nokia Priority dealer and 5 months later that same dealer offers me 9K for it and only upon exchange. I told him I'd rather bury it than exchange for one more purchase from him. Then another dealer offered 12K without exchange, so I got rid of it, it was way too bulky for me. In 5 months, Nokia had willingly devalued N73 by bringing out N73Me with 2GB ram and dropping the N73 price to 19K.

Always wait 6 months before buying any Hot Nokia Phone.
