Oh gosh... Your response filled with typographical errors, improper grammar, and incomprehensible sentence structure is only proving my point.
Anonymous, 21 Aug 2009Why do they insist on 5 MP cameras? No very smart, marketwise. Before someone starts saying th... moreNokia already has 8 megapixels under the N86 as u know so they are in this "megapixel race" although they wont go 12 this yr. I believe they want this to be a slight upgrade (with alternative OS) over the 97 and not the sucessor so that N97 sales are not effected. At the same time incorporating 8mega in another could hit N86 sales. Im not sure what their strategy this yr but it seems N86 is the only 8mega from them
N97 would prob be the symbian flagship for a while and they are switching to this new platform in like 2 yrs.
If this phone could provide better specs than N97, I'll definitely make this phone mine!!
Seems cool fer me.. ;)
this is just the begining for nokia's computer hybrid smartphones. other devices based on nokia and intel's linux os powered with intel processor probably new atom processor for mobile will be launched soon then will know who will sit on throne of smartphones. nokia has spent all this time on R&D AND strategic partnership

all u wan is a digital camera but not a phone
Why do they insist on 5 MP cameras? No very smart, marketwise. Before someone starts saying that MP count means squat, still its not very inteligent to stick to 5 MP when the competition continues the MP race. Needed or not, pixel count is still a selling argument. I also presume that this one will come with yet another crappy LED flash. I don't care if it's a n-th generation LED, LED still produces poor results compared to xenon flashes.
@Everyone saying this is like the N97
THIS is what N97 should be. I'm going to repeat the upgrades from N97 to N900 here:
1. 1GB of virtual memory, which includes 256MB RAM (up from 126MB RAM)
2. Video recording is WVGA@30fps (up from VGA@30fps)
3. Screen resolution is 800 x 480 (up from 640 x 360)
4. OMAP3 platform (far superior to ARM11)
5. Beautiful GUI
6. Smarter open-source OS (can run the full versions of Firefox, OpenOffice etc.)
7. Kickstand, webcam, more realible design, better quality
8. And a lot more...
9. ...as well as everything else N97 had (including 32GB internal, FM transmitter, digital compass and much more)
..., 21 Aug 2009whats the difference between this and the N97? design and name?What do you know about the specifications of this device ?? If you even bothered yourself reading the news, you'd have known the difference!

Just wait for the official announcement next month .. you'll be surprised!

and it will have the SAME API as the symbian.
Both of the OS will have a Qt based apps.
Note: nokia is the owner of QT trooltech.
Its identical with N97!
Nokia aren't you produce any style or even a better style such as Samsung? And even better CPU like iPhone 3Gs!
Maybe the reason for it being a GSM phone is due to a lack of support for #G in Linux, Motorola never could get it to work which was why the V8 2G phone ran Linux and the 3G V9 didn't.
Maybe Nokia will have better luck.
Whoa, this is so surprising...
I can't wait for this phone now.
I hope this phone must be launch as soon as possible, maybe this 3rd quarter of this year.
Surely this will be a very big blast in the pace of great smartphones..!

I doubt it, cuz if you did, you'd have known who is going to lead and who is trying to catch up. I already doubt you even know the specifications of this phone, cuz it's neither Symbian nor WinMo. Read the review then come talk!!
