Nokia N85

The Good HSDPA, GPS, Wi-Fi keep you connected; 5-megapixel camera takes good pics; 3.5mm headphone jack is convenient, and well placed.

The Bad Keys on the keypad could be better defined.

The Bottom Line The Nokia N85 is another solid N-series phone from the peeps in Finland, but if you're looking for something different this won't be your bag. What you have with the N85 is a well-designed, feature-packed phone, but it's not a million miles away from the N95 -- it's just more refined. We still like it and think that as long as you don't mind having a 5-megapixel camera instead of an 8-megapixel one, it's definitely worth checking out

Nokia N85

The N85 will be available soon for free on a monthly contract. Pricing has yet to be announced.

Design
The N85 is a solid-feeling slider phone that's smooth around the edges, giving it a more up-to-date feel than the blocky N95. Considering how many features it packs in, it doesn't feel chunky or too heavy.
