Nokia N95 : Hsdpa Introduced

By: Raina Kelsey

Purchasers of the phone would be getting first of its kind HSDPA (High-Speed Downlink Packet Access) enabled 3G mobile phone, in the Nokia N95 model. What users of the phone would be expecting from this embedded technology? With the help of this technology, users now would be able to experience a lot in their data transfer speeds and capacity, thus experiencing a different feel what they do in the computer.

An all-in-one multimedia computer, the 2-way slide open Nokia N95 of the Nseries, beside many features, is equipped with a fully functional integrated GPS functionality and with a niche 5 megapixel camera.

The Nokia N95 model is such made that an amateur start recording videos, browse the Internet, listen to songs, take high-quality photos, and catch up on email. All in one go.

Now, the million dollar question which is being asked repeatedly and very often in the mobile circle, particularly by the users of Nokia N95 is - what HSDPA (High-Speed Downlink Packet Access) is all about? Is it a fuss or something a technical innovation?

Well, for the non-technical users and resisting ourselves going through the pesky lanes of technical jargons and specifications, with the Nokia N95 model they are going to have an improved spectral efficiency, which provides higher data rates, shorter response times and better Qos (Quality of Service).

An enhancement to the 3G technology, HSDPA enabled mobile phone, in our case the Nokia N95, it increases the DL data rates from 384Kbps (theoretically 2Mbps) to 10Mbps (theoretically 14Mbps). But current HSDPA infrastructure supports 1.8 Mbit/s, 36 Mbit/s, 7.2 Mbit/s and 14.4 Mbit/s in downloading. In simple term, the user is going to feel the same experience what he feels with the Broadband connections at his home and office. It would take less than a minute to watch good quality real time videos and download complete song tracks.

Another question that is being asked is - beside experiencing higher connectivity what could be the other possible uses of HSDPA? The answer is with the Nokia N95 HSDPA enabled mobile set, the user can do real time video conferencing with more than one user using very high quality video.

So, HSDPA is not at all a much-hyped fuss but indeed an answer to the demand of the future.
