Ever since its debut back in September 2006, the Nokia N95 has been one of the most anticipated and highly coveted smart phones, and now it's finally available here in the United States.

So what's all the fuss about this phone? Well, it boasts a 5-megapixel camera that can also record VGA-quality video, a robust media player with a 3.5mm headphone jack, a dual-slider design, and integrated GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. Not to mention, it's a Symbian smart phone as well.

The right side of the Nokia N95 houses the volume rocker, a shortcut to your photo gallery, and the camera activation button. The latter is in a position so that you're holding the phone horizontally, it actually mimics the look and feel of a digital camera.

The power connector and mini USB ports are located on the bottom of the device. In addition to a travel charger and a USB cable, the U.S. version of the Nokia N95 also comes packaged with a TV-out cable, a 1GB microSD card with adapter for SD drives, a pair of earbud headphones, and more.

Considering all the features that are packed into the Nokia N95, you'd think it would be a pretty hefty phone, but the phone measures a compact 3.8 inches long by 2.1 inches wide by 0.8 inch thick and weighs only 4.2 ounces.

While the dual-slider design is nice, we had a couple of concerns. First, the cover, which houses the screen and navigation buttons, felt loose and rattled around a bit. It just didn't feel like it was securely locked into place, and when putting the phone into a pants pocket or even when thrown into a bag, it was too easy to slide open the phone.

The Nokia N95's lack of a full QWERTY keyboard makes this smart phone better for making calls rather than e-mail.

The Nokia N95 is equipped with an impressive 5-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens and flash, and produced some impressive photos with rich colors and sharp definition.

Thankfully, Nokia put the microSD slot on the left spine of the N95 instead of behind the battery cover, and it can accept up to 2GB cards.

While the alphanumeric keypad is spacious, the navigation controls above it are slightly cramped and slick, but it's an improvement over the Nokia E65's miniscule buttons.

The dedicated media controls are a nice touch, but they're hard to press. When you expose this set of buttons, the screen also automatically switches to landscape mode.

With such a focus of music and video, Nokia equipped the N95 with a 3.5mm headset jack, which means you can plug in your favorite pair of earbuds or headphones for a better listening experience.
