Darla Mack is one lucky woman and gets lots of opportunities to check out the latest and greatest Nokia S60 devices. This time she has the Nokia N95-3 device in her hands that has US 3G support (AT&T network), more RAM (about 80 MB vs 20 MB free on the N95) and a larger battery. Darla has a first look at the battery life (comparing non-3G devices) and the new battery appears to significantly increase the run time of the device. The faster data network will require more power and you may not see a huge difference in battery life if you are using the 3G network. While the 3G network support is nice (I won't see it on T-Mobile though), I am personally more excited about the much greater RAM and battery capacities. I run into low RAM issues from time-to-time and can't imagine having these issues with about 80MB of free RAM available. I keep going back to using the Nokia N95 due to the Yahoo! Music support, great stereo speakers, and 3rd party application support and am looking forward to trying out this model or the 8GB N95.
If you want to check out this latest N95, and other great S60 devices, in person then you may want to attend the Evening with S60 in San Francisco that is being held on 23 October. You will get hands-on time with the latest and greatest S60 devices, see demos of devices and software, get a chance to give feedback to Nokia sales and marketing reps and chat with representatives directly from Nokia in Finland. Phil, when is the Evening with S60 in Seattle event going to be held?
