Start saving your pennies, Cravers: the much-coveted Nokia N95 is coming to the United States. That's right, baby. Scheduled for a late spring release, the N95 brings an innovative two-way slider design, integrated GPS, Wi-Fi, and a 5-megapixel camera, just to name a few of the phone's goodies. Unfortunately, it looks like the HSDPA support will be stripped out of the U.S. version though. What the? Booooo! For now, the quad-band (GSM 850/900/1800/1900; EDGE) N95 won't be released with any carrier, so the good news is it's not tied down to one service provider. You can just plop in your T-Mobile or Cingular/AT&T SIM card, and start using the Symbian-based phone. The bad news is the gut-wrenching price; we're looking at $400 to $500 for an unlocked version, but we have to say, if you're willing to spend that much on a phone, it might as well be for the N95.
Following the N95 will be the music-centric Nokia N76. This sleek and sexy flip Symbian handset will ship around early summer and also will be sold as an unlocked phone with pricing starting around $500. Highlights include a 2-megapixel camera, a built-in music player, an FM radio, external music controls, and a 3.5mm headset jack. Both the Nokia N95 and the Nokia N76 will be sold through major retailers, Nokia's Web site, and the company's flagship stores. Hang in there just a while longer, they're coming!
