I just ordered the two about 3 hours ago.

If Icepick no longer wants it i'll offer it to others when it arrives. Can't wait to get them as the one thing I utterly hate about the n95 is the awful hard keys.

I have an el-cheapo crystal case which I bought for $12 or something, it's very brital and scratches easy, I was wondering if anyone had an original one and could comment on it about it's durability and strength?

Same here, I bought a rubbish one and threw it in the rubbish. It plain sucked.

Comments about the "original one" would be appreciated here as well.

I bought a crystal case too. I liked the feel of it, etc, but it cracked, as well. The trouble is, down where the nav buttons are there is only a very small area of plastic between the hole for the navbuttons and the side and it is prone to cracking.
I don't really know what to get now. I don't like the floppy leather one that much - it takes up too much space in your pocket.

I have the iGo keyboard up and running and it's great!
Took me a while to figure out that the left function key and the space bars were the 'soft keys', but I got it now :)
Now that I have the pro version of quickoffice I could write a whole heap.

Ditto with the crystal hard case, mine broke within a week. I am about to get one of the soft silicone rubber ones, will report back.




 I'm supposed to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

I see that expansys has all types of cases for N95, including a leather one. Trouble is, the leather one has a magnetic closing system, and I read somewhere that the magnet can stuff up your screen.

I don't think that a magnet could stuff up a cellphone because as this web article says, the Sidekick 3 has one which holds the screen closed so you wouldn't put something that could stuff up the phone in the phone.

Interesting article HERE about the different types/brands of case. The crystal scores quite high, apart from the cracking (and I *do* like the look and feel). Pity they couldn't make it tougher wearing.

OK guys; I found this case at a Digital Mobile store. It's the same shape as the crystal case, but it's made of black plastic and seems a lot tougher. The only thing is that it doesn't have a clear top that covers the screen like the crystal case (eg, it has a screen-shaped "hole"), so you'd have to make sure you have your screen protector on that came with the N95.

Price: $20

Further developments about the non availability of 4Gb Micro-SD cards.

I apparently got an email last week-not that I saw it to say that these cards are now unavailable and have in fact been discontinued worldwide!!!!!
I rang the guy atr Flashcards and he confirms this story.
He said blame the Ipod 4Gb devices that come with their native memory.
He suggested try overseas but they will be hard to come buy

Hmmm, makes you wonder doesn't it?
With a 4G card the N95 would be a serious threat to the iPhone - it would have the same storage capacity for music/photos as an iPhone, plus the N95 has a camera and GPS etc etc.

There is even a 6GB micro SDHC card on Sandisk's webpage
Here

So why they would discontinue the 4GB?? I dont understand. They already announced the 8GB version too.


BTW anybody knows if the 6GB is compatible with the N95? :)

All the microSD HC range will be compatible, theres no possible reason for them not to be.
