Richard Martin's recent review of the Nokia N95 was very interesting. It showed how the latest offering from Nokia has probably out "Apple-ed" Apple's iPhone and made the first move into high end smart phone space. From the review, it appears that all the N95 does not do is wash your car.... Too bad I'm only up to the E62... :)
However, it appears that not everyone is a fan of the capabilities of this product. It appears that European carriers are disabling the wireless VoIP (wVoIP) functionality on their subsidized N95 handsets. While I would not begrudge any firm from supporting (via subsidy) a technology that would undermine their core revenue stream; the statements from the European carriers about proper testing do not ring true. Perhaps this is an example of wireless providers getting a taste of what wireline providers have experienced for a while with VoIP via landline....
