If you've got any of that holiday gift money left, you might want to hold onto it for this sucker. Nokia announced at CES 2008 that it will be bringing a North American version of the Nokia N95 8GB this quarter, all for the bargain price of $749 unlocked (zoiks!). The good news is that the Symbian smartphone supports our 850/1900MHz HSPDA bands, so you can just pop in a AT&T SIM card to enjoy those 3.5G speeds. Of course, there's also the 8GB of onboard memory but be aware there's no microSD expansion slot on this version. All the other features are similar to the Nokia N95 North American Edition, which includes a 5-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, GPS, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi. The North American Nokia N95 8GB will be available for purchase through online retailers and at Nokia's flagship stores in New York and Chicago.
