Nokia has confirmed that trucks carrying its N95 8GB have started their engines today, and the “stunning”, “memory-packed” devices will be hitting a store near you soon. To celebrate, the handset maker has teamed up with Sony Pictures Entertainment to offer the device pre-loaded with the full-length feature film Spider-Man 3 in Europe and selected countries in Middle East and Africa region.

Apart from some Spidey/Venom/Sandman action, the N95 8GB also offers:

  • 8GB of built-in memory (but you’d probably already guessed that)
  • 5-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics
  • A-GPS for sat-nav capability
  • WLAN for wireless internet connection
  • HSDPA
  • 2-way slide
  • luminous 2.8" (240 x 320) QVGA display

Nokia says the N95 8GB’s expanded memory offers up to 20 hours of video or up to 2,000 songs encoded using the AAC format at 128kbps.

"We've reached a pinnacle with the Nokia N95 and now with the addition of one of the largest ever displays, built-in Assisted-GPS and improved battery power, the Nokia N95 8GB takes entertainment enjoyment to another level," said Jonas Geust, vice president of multimedia at Nokia.
 
Boasting up to, the Nokia N95 8GB has all the key features of its predecessor, including a 5 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, built-in A-GPS, WLAN, HSDPA and an innovative 2-way slide. The sleek black N95 8GB also boasts a luminous 2.8" (240 x 320) QVGA display, so watching videos, browsing the Internet or viewing maps is a real pleasure.
