what happens when you insert a 4 gb microSD card into a phone that supports upto 2gb microSD card?

N95

Hi Rafe
I've recently returned a SE W950i (see post), and wondered if Nokia had any intentions of developing the A2DP aspects of phones such as the N95?
It seems to me that the truly integrated comms/entertainment package for the car could be achieved using A2DP.
Would you car to comment or predict?
Thanks.

Good job Rafe

Rafe, I must admire your efforts to satisfy all of us in terms of your experience with N95. Its my dream to have this phone. But one thing which is bothering me is the dim lighting condition in its video. The videos of N93 seems more bright and crisp as compared to to those shot with N95. Tell me is it possible to adjust the default settings to improve lighting conditions in videos. And secondly tell me please is it possible to shoot a video in CIF or QCIF formats with 30fps. Do the pictures taken with N95's 5mp camera are of the quality equivalent to digital cameras. Is its macro mode good enough to be used as scanner?
And last question for this session! Do you know the exact date when this phopne will be available in market?
Thanks in advance for you cooperation.

It may work, haven't tried this myself. Past experience suggest provided its not a different format (e.g. SDHC) then it should work

The N95 has full support for A2DP. This basically means it can use any bluetooth stereo audio accessories. Worked fine with the Sony Ericsson headset I tried.

You can fiddle with the settings a bit. Its difficult to comment fully as final software is not out yet. Yes you can shoot videos at lower resolutions (e.g. for MMS), not sure of the frame rate though.

Macro mode is supported, I'm not sure its good enough for a scanner, but should be ok to photo docs etc.

The phone will be available late March / early April.

Its been OK for me. I do tend to stick to a relatively small subset on sites though. Much the same as the N93 for me, though the browser is faster and seems to use less memory.

I think I understand you, and the answer is yes.

Yes, though you would have to add these one by one which might get annoying. I am fairly sure traffic cameras will be available as a premium add on sooner or later.

No continuous AF on the one i have.

Can I install the map of Germany on the memory card from the CD or download them from the internet and keep them on my memory card? I ask because data rates are much cheaper in the home network than when roaming, if I plan a trip to Germany, I want to install the maps before I go there..
Yes MPŁ files can go anywhere, but it makes sense to keep them to the sounds folders. No MP3 doesn't drain the battery that badly.

Yes you can install the map of Germany to the phone. I've done so for the UK and a few other European countries.

I imagine it will be available via importers quite soon (or from Nokia flagship stores), other than that I don't know.

Optical zoom is done using optics at capture. You can still zoom into the picture after it is taken. The other zoom you hear about is digital - this is done in software and to be honest is a bit useless.

Sound quality has been excellent for me. I'll try and find the 6680 for a comparison picture.

3 - When you are you WLAN does it repeatedly ask you to connect when using different apps, for example, you are browsing on the web, you switch to the email app to check your emails, does it just check the emails or does it (like the N80) fail to realise you are already connected and ask you to connect again? (also does this when using web feeds on the N80), not a huge problem but still annoying.

4 - In your opinion how does the screen look when compared to the the 352 x 416 of the N80, E70 etc
1. I don't think so.
2. Yes.
3. I haven't seen this happen, it does do this if no connection is currently being used.
3. Its not as good, but its not a major issue for me. I happier to have a physically bigger screen.

I was wondering about the browser, I read that the servicebrowser and webbrowser is now 2in1 so I was wondering if you can finally save pictures etc. Because that was only possible in the servicebrowser.
I also like to know if they got a better find function. Like CTRL+F in Internet Explorer where you just type something and it searches the page.
And what about browsing, is it possible to open more windows? at the same time? Because now it doesn't to that unless you press a link on the site that is scripted with "target=_blank"

USB related

I read you cannot charge the phone via usb, do you think that will be possible with a firmware upgrade, a BlackBerry, PDA, MP3-players and other devices can be charged using usb though.
Can you use the mini USB port also for other applications or tools?
Will check browser as not sure. Yes you have a search in page feature. I don't think a firmware update will allow charging by USB. I'm not sure it is possible. MiniUSB

If you record video on the highest res and then want to send it in a MMS, can it resize the video to "fit" in an MMS?

(Havent used any Series 60 before, so sorry if it's a stupid question)

Thanks for the info Rafe. Does it have the WLAN wizard on the active standby screen like my N93 has since Nokia upgraded the firmware to V20?

Also is the music player as good as or better than the N93 music player?

The WLAN Wizard is on the active standy by on mine (early software disclaimer etc etc)

Music player is the same or very similar compared to N93.

screen quality; TFT versuS unfortunately no VGS

The N95 is equiped with TFT screen, because of its larger screen size compared to the N93 how is the pixelation
