A third version of the Nokia N95 multimedia computer has cleared the FCC. This newest version includes quad-band GSM/EDGE and dual-band WCDMA 850/1900 for use in the States. It carries over most specifications from the standard European version, including 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, stereo Bluetooth, GPS and a 5 Megapixel camera. It runs the Symbian S60 platform, and has a microSD slot for media storage. None of the versions are officially offered by any U.S. carrier, but this version will work on AT&T's 3G network. There is no word on what pricing will be.
If the N75 experience is anything to go by, be prepared to add at least 6 months to any release date AT&T advertises. And unless you do the smart thing and buy it unbranded and unlocked, prepare to deal with the panoply of AT&Ts intrusive, cumbersome... (continues)

I'm pumped for the N95 US Version but will I still be when the price is unvailed? I currently have an N80 and wanted the N95 but was scared do to the price as well as the non-us support for it. So now I've waited and solved one problem that being theres a US version which will be able to get the best of my AT&T network even without having them as a dedicated carrier but will the price of this really drag my hopes down. I mean the Non-US is $750 (if your lucky) and up so how much cheaper can it be its the same phone with American bands? The iPhone was $600 bucks cant picture the N95 US version being much less.
I can see it costing around $400 with contract and like $600 without. Which more or less is inline with AT&T's top of the line phones (excluding the iphone). And probably with a $50 rebate as a teaser.
