Nokia N95 ‘Running’ Review

I propose that the Nokia N95 is the essential runners phone – check out my review on the gadgets page and come back with counter suggestions if you think I haven’t proved my case.

  1. Well they paid me to take it out of the shop so I can’t really complain. The tariff is a bit steep for someone who doesn’t like chatting on the phone though. I’m taking it on a running commute tonight and I’ve forgotten my iPod so it will have a good test.

  2. I briefly checked the N95 out the other day and is the same size as my Nokia 6280. Here in Oz it’s about the $1000 mark, a bit on the steep side. I carry my 6280 on all my runs, usually in my back pocket. If taking the phone out on runs one thing to watch for is moisture. I put my 6280 in for repair as I believe moisture infected the keypad as I couldn’t activate the bottom three keys. The phone was under warranty so it didn’t cost me for fixing.

    When I say I checked it out, I was only checking the physical dimensions.

  3. I always carry mine in a little plastic sandwich bag as I have to admit that life get’s a bit humid in my pocket after a couple of miles.

  4. ahh yes – ascent – looks great. the mac needs to be 10.4 or higher though … mines a 10.3 op system powerbook…. i cant really justify a garmin and a new mac just yet.

  5. I got my N95 on Friday and I’m rather chuffed with it. The GPS is a bit slow (like the Blackberry 8800), but I think this is cause they opted for a cheap non SIFR variety of GPS. Have you installed Sports Tracker yet? It’s never going to replace the Garmin Forerunner series, but it’s pretty groovy!

I'd love to hear from you....
