If you run N-Gage games on a Nokia N95, its multimedia keys automatically turn into gaming keys equivalent to those on the N81 or N96. There still seem to be a lot of people unaware of this, or even claiming that we're mistaken, so we've done a very short video showing this feature in action. Click here to see it...

We can't guarantee this will work on all the regional variants of the N95, but it should at least work on the N95-1 / RM-159 (the original version) as that's what we're using in the video.
