Read on in the full article.

Well, thanks in the first place!

One thing i learned is the possibility (finally) for us to choose the font size. You mentioned 3 but only showed us 2 screens... any chance of seeing the one missing?

Another font related thing is, that it's pity that with smaller font you can't see more lines. The message app example you gave is good.

The two shown are the smallest and the largest, the middle one is the normal one and is somewhere between those two.

Update:

here you go.

Excellent article!

Btw, wonder if in the near future (not specific to N95 but for any phone with WiFI) it will be possible to make WiFi/VoIP video calls with Skype or with the enbedded VoIP application? That would be the killer app for me, living abroad with family and friends in another country.

New apps

Hi, I have some questions too:

What are the new apps added in FP1?

Is it possible to charge the battery over USB?

Does it come with Gizmo VoIP?

SIP is a standard feature in Feature Pack 1.

This means it is already possible to make phone calls over WiFi using SIP with this phone. Indeed I've got Truphone working on the N95. The N95 includes a Internet Call application that lets you set the phone to default to using SIP calls when it is successfully registered with a SIP service (i.e. if you press dial from say contacts it will use the VOIP service, not the cellular and if your not registered [in range of home WiFi] then it will use cellular). Will try and cover this in more detail in a few days.

Skype is not currently possibly. Third parties like Fring may support it. It would work using iSkoot (as on 3's X-Series) too.

No you can't charge over USB (a shame IMHO)

It doesn't come configured with Gizmo, but it is Gizmo compatiable as it has support for SIP.

New apps in FP 1 - I'm not sure there are any specific to FP 1. There are new apps as has been mentioned previously (e.g. Video service, Internet calls, Welcome, etc etc.) but some of these are available as addons for previous phones or have been seen before.

Quick question -
Can you use the flashlight on the phone in the same way as the N93?

Good that you made a topic to organize all the question and answers, is it possible to add the new q&a to the topic every time. It is more clear then the forum posts

Upnp?

Does the N95 support Universal Plug and Play like the N80 does? This is really amazing technology - althought I am not to sure how its market penetration is. For that matter - can I get UPNP on other S60 devices?

Ah sorry did not read you original question carefully enough. I believe it is voice only (I've not done any video stuff over SIP myself, so I don't know much about it - sorry).
