Nokia N95

There is no denying, within the Windows Mobile/Smartphone community, Nokia is considered to be something of a bad word. The word itself is often deliberately misspelt.

However with devices such as the Nokia N95 gradually developing more PDA-like features it’s becoming harder to ignore them.

Nokia N95
