[ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> Hi, I'm Bonnie Cha, Senior editor at CNET.com and today we're taking a First Look at the 8GB Nokia N95. So, this is basically like the other N95 models except it's got 8GB of internal memory. So there's plenty of room for your music, your videos, any multi-media fills that you have. As a result of having 8GB of memory, Nokia decided to take out the expansion slot and I can understand their philosophy on that, but I just still want that options, so that was one downside, I thought about it. Design-wise there are few differences. It has a larger 2.8-inch screen. And it's only a zero point two inches bigger, but it's really noticeable and I really liked it for viewing pictures and web pages. Also it has better multimedia buttons. It's a little more bubbly, so they're easier to press. Feature-wise, it's got everything you want, it's got Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and a 5-megapixel camera, also really great for multimedia. A couple of downsides, performance was a little slow, and call quality wasn't the greatest. And also, you gotta pay $780 for this phone because the carrier hasn't picked it up and I guess that it's just jammed packed with features, but if you can afford it and you really love convergence, this is the one to get and I'm Bonnie Cha and this has been your first look at the 8GB N95.
