I just read this, and I am shocked!
N95-8GB has 8GB of internal flash memory
Obvious, right? The new N95 comes with 8GB of internal flash memory that can be used for music, videos, maps and ring-tones. Cannot be used for applications or messages.
N95-8GB has less internal memory
Since you cannot use the 8GB of flash memory to install applications and to store SMS/MMS, you have to be aware the this phone has 100MB of internal memory instead of 160MB of the “traditional” N95

OMG, is this true? What do you use to install apps onto it then?!?! oh dear..... Did I just make a $1000 mistake...

When installing applications you can choose whether to use the internal flash memory or the 8GB flash memory. I installed a couple of applications on the N95 8GB over the weekend and while I did install them on the internal memory, I am reasonably certain you can install on either. I can check if you really want?

If you bought from a registered NZ business, and you were led to believe (by the retailer) that the phone could store apps in the 8GB, and it cannot, then you would have a claim for a refund under the CGA.

I am not a lawyer.

I am mainly wondering about the apps which are downloaded on the pc, and transfered to the phone. All I know is that the apps were copied to the microSD of the original N95 model. Any chance you could see if there is infact any way to put apps on from the pc? I know that you can download some apps via the web browser.

well, I just had a look on n95 users forums, and they confirmed, along with every other website i looked on, that this fact was not true. False alarm guys
