Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970So why can't you install skype on an N97, Bec?
Why isn't Nokia sports tracker in Ovi store for the N97?
Why do you have to go to Symbianmobile to get it?
Why do YouTube clips look so horrible on the N97, why aren't they fullscreen?
Why isn't the N97 screen very responsive and why don't things just work the way they should?
Skype for the iPhone is free and has been since it was launched last year a lot of Apps are free.

I was using an N97 this morning, I installed the beta of Opera Mobile 10 on it and it's s@&t, I don't know how anyone can use such a horrible non-responsive interface and say in any way that it's an enjoyable experience.
The simplest things are mind numbingly awful, I just wanted to hurl that rubbish out the window the controlling it was so bad.

If you read through Bec's stupid list, you'll see half the stuff that Bec is whining about is having to install applications and as you seemed to be basing judgements on the iPhone on Bec's list don't you think it's just a little bit hypocritical?
Bec must have something wrong, Bec keeps pasting list over and over.

Anonymous, 05 Nov 2009Hey you're the one who took up Bec's stupid list a lot of which is taken up by seeming complai... moreOfcourse not all smartphones have all of these features, !BUT! none of them misses that many or needs stupid "jailbreaking" techniques!
Omnia HD is absolutley the best symbian smartphone out there, there's no arguing that.
So is skype finally available or not?
Out of all those 1000000000000 apps, not even a decent voip or what???
As for iPhone, considering the improvements 3G -> 3GS, I bet not even the next model will fix more than 25% of theese issues.

You forget that samsung and nokia have the same os on those phones. Divx support can be installed. Most features are just an app install away.
I feel cheated from buying this phone. Its ridiculously expensive first of all. Secondly the app store has thousands of apps but almost all of them are useless. You only get a handfull of good ones. You may argue that apple sells the most phones, but most people dont really know what they are buying when they get this phone, they just hear that is sells well so they get it. 6 people in my firm have got the 3gs this week but have returned it. Its just not a good business phone, it lacks some of the features we actually need. People may mock nokia, samsung, se and htc but their phones are way better. Until apple makes a phone which actually has todays features, its best to stay far.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u2j5oOR9JjYHey you're the one who took up Bec's stupid list a lot of which is taken up by seeming complaints about having to install applications to add functionality.
So if I open an N97 box, take out an N97 and put a memory card with a Divx file on it then add it to media player, it will just start working?
Skype works on the iPhone NOW contrary to Bec's list, it's been coming for the N97 since it was announced in FEBRUARY, so wtf's going on it's 8 months and it's still not there.
As I said I didn't have to go through half of Bec's list to find five things the N97 couldn't do, you said there were only three in the WHOLE list.
Things like maxing out at VGA video recording, just like the iPhone 3GS.
The Omnia HD does more things on that list than the N97 does therefore you should have got the better phone.
Anonymous, 04 Nov 2009Things from that list the N97 doesn't do:- iDon't handle push e-mail, iOnly sync, draining ... moreSkype will be integrated into the Symbian OS like the N900. No need for extra apps.
jbc, 04 Nov 2009I don't have an iphone yet. My friends do and they all are very happy with it. There is really... morei tried the link, but typically Apple it doesnt't play out of the box in my Firefox browser. Terrible old fashion politics, very closed minded.
And the phone has the most boring, static homescreen that even feature phones with 10% of the cost are more attractive.
