Has anyone got one of the N95's with more recent firmware? Have they ever fixed the horrible USB speed on them? I had one a while ago but ditched it as I wanted to be able to transfer data on/off of it, but when the USB speed was only marginally faster than USB 1, it was just too annoying and I got rid of it. IIRC it was transferring data around the 1MB/sec mark which with 5+ GB of data is pretty painful, with a device that flash I'd have hoped that they'd get at least a _little_  bit closer to the theoretical USB 2 max of ~60MB/sec. (I know it depends which USB2 spec the phone is using as to if it's using high-speed or full-speed)

With the model with the removal microSD card it can obviously be put into a card reader which is much quicker, but it's still one more thing to have to carry around.

Failing that, do we know when the N96 is going to show up here? Surely that must work better...

The handset is and will only ever be USB 1.1 compliant.

Its only in the newer (N96 etc.) Handsets that are USB 2.0. Its not a simple firmware update unfortunately

It is USB 2.0 on the Nokia N95.  The problem is the phone's processor.

I would simply take the memory card out and slot it into a card reader.
