Super phone: AT&T N95 ad shows up on Google

Published: March 17, 2008

A few weeks ago I reported on increased talk about Nokia's N95 - that do it all 5MP Camera, GPS & WiFi uberphone - making its way to AT&T here in the US before too long.  That was just the latest in a chain of related rumors dating back to last summer, but it did seem to have some legs.  Well, chalk another one up for those legs (or for an unfortunate error on AT&T or Google's part).

I Googled "Nokia N95" while researching an article just now and there at the top of my results page was a sponsored link for ... you guessed it ... The N95 on AT&T.  Clicking the link took me to the listing of all Nokia handsets on ATT.com, but sadly there was no N95 to come.  Is this simply a case of someone typing in "N95" when they meant "N75" - that giant S60 clamshell that AT&T's been selling for awhile now?  Or could it be that AT&T bought up a bunch of links that Google deployed a day or two early, and we'll soon be seeing a hopefully not-too-over-branded-and-locked-down N95 in AT&T stores real, real soon?
