i am planning to swap my n97 to an n900. do you think it is a good idea?? i have seen all the weaknesses of n97. its true that it has a 32gb of storage. but when i used almost 10gb from the original 32gb, i noticed that its starting to lag a bit. and it starts slowly. do you think n900 wont pose the same problem as what ive encountered with my n97?

I own a N97 and have had more problems with it in 3 months that I have had with all my cell phones and laptops combined over the last 25 years. To list these problems would be like writing an encyclopedia of what can go wrong with a smartphone. Yesterday I finally returned it to Nokia when they told me they have no spare parts to fix the problems. And their support and service is basically non-existant. How can they dare, or be allowed, to release a product this bad.

N97 is good?? Pfft, the N97 utilizes outdated hardware.

N900 is good?? Definately. This is what you call a Nokia N-Series device. This device just out does the N97 by miles.

So my advise wait for the N900 go to the store and have a go at both. I regret getting the N97 as it is never out of the care centre.
p.s am on the third handset

lucky you for gettin an n97 for your birthday. I have the n97 and you'l love it, but i'll be honest, i think this phone is better/will be better. The only reason y i would say get the n97 is becuase nokia does a FINE job of supporting n-series phones so the n97 is only going to get better, plus symbian has alot more games and entertainment uses than the os that they use in the n900.

The N900 seem to be better than both the miniN97 and the original N97. But, after checking the specs I still feel Nokia hasn't learned its lesson, with graphical based interfaces and software's being developed for high end phones which increases RAM utilization with an on-board RAM of just 256 isn't good enough.

The RAM should at least be 512mb or higher for the phone to achieve better performance as well as to multitask like a breeze.

The N97 mini should come with a trackpad like its brother has in the enterprise series E72 that would make things better. Having a track pad is essential and better that a D-Pad.

Looks like Nokia got some feedback from N97 users and did the right thing by updating it to this new Mini: A little narrower, less plastic-looking, unnecessary lens cover removed, more room for keyboard keys by removing the pad. Good or bad? Good IMO.
Anyway we are still looking for a capacitve touch-screen from the Finnish maker. Is it gonna be a long wait?

What is the point of having a N97 mini when the most useful features like the directional pad was taken off? The directional pad is the most important feature to be used while browsing the net becoz the wording are so tiny during the compact mode which may cause users to click on the wrong selection.

Like what i had post in the N97 review previously, Nokia is not improving at all when they launch the N97. N97 is totally the same as N95 just that there's additional touchscreen and qwerty. So does it means that the trimmed down version of N97 is worst than N95? sigh...
