I don't care what the nonsense he was talking about(Nokia Admits to N97 Fail(video)).
I had upgraded my N97 firmware to v21.x,it's the best so far,no freezing,no reseting,it runs pretty smoothly,all goes well,i'm happy about it.
For goodness sake those N97 user still having ver 1.x please go and upgrade to the latest firmware and stop complaining.
Nokia is the best now comes with free navigation map for life with voice guided so more.Does any rival operators give you a free map for life?NO NO
I am thinking of buying an N97. I'm a doctor and I need a phone which can store powerpoint, word, pdf and html so i can browse through them anytime of the day without difficulty. Would this phone be good for my needs? Please post your comments... thank you!!!
does this phone has a on screen t9 keypad... i'm used to t9 keypad it would be better if it has a t9 touchscreen keypad on display
will the new symbian platform be available for the n97 ?
like the Symbian^3 and Symbian^4?
Cijo, 27 Feb 2010I love my N97 bcoz:
2)32 GB storage
3)Able to make free video calls-tha... moreIf you think the Nokia N97 is heavy, why not check the Nokia N86 8MP? It's a lot heavier and I held one because of my aunt has a Nokia N86 8MP.
The camera is good at night or low light if it's close to you. otherwise, getting pics in a low light in a stadium-like is a no no. For example, taking pics in a dome full of crowds in a low light. that's bad.
getting pics closer to your subject is the best.
I love my N97 bcoz:
2)32 GB storage
3)Able to make free video calls-thanks to Fring
4)Free GPS and offline map( though I prefer to use my Garmin mobile GPS)
5)Cool free applications and games
7)Extremely smooth kinetic scrolling ( thanks for V21 upgrade)
What is littile disappointing
1)Low phone memory ( I had to re install all the applications except Handy Taskman, Maps, OVI store client and I now got just above 30 MB. Hopefully, next f/w will give us an option to instal the map on mass memory so that I can increase my phone memory to 42 MB+
2)Low RAM ( Had to close all unwanted application often but thanks to Handy Taskman, it takes only 5 seconds )
3)Camera at dark conditions
4)A bit heavy ( not size but weight)
1)Auto rotate is too slow..feel to turn off auto rotate feature
2)Cannot add 2 more short cut bar on the desktop (max is 2)

Im thinking about buying the Nokia N97. It look like a realy interesting phone 2 get but thats jus base on appearance. I need 2 know if its a good idea 2get 1.
Plez i need ur opinion, N97 users.
Anonymous, 25 Feb 2010I heard the camera is poor at nightThat is so not true. Nokia N97 32GB's camera is the best in the night if you have a clear lens (meaning you have 2nd gen lens cover)
It is head to head with the Nokia N96 in terms of camera but we are talking 5th edition SYMBIAN here so there's something new while the N96's OS is a veteran.
I just wish we can have N-Series photo gallery where you can scroll the pics/vids

It's unusual for a company to publicly admit its shortcomings -- particularly a company as big, proud, and resolute as Nokia generally seems to be -- but an All About Symbian / Mobile Industry Review joint interview with Anssi Vanjoki, vice president of markets, at MWC last week painted a very different picture with regard to Espoo's views on the maligned N97. Though he says that the phone absolutely met the company's goals for sales volume and revenue, it was a "tremendous disappointment in terms of the experience quality for the consumers and something [they] did not anticipate." This isn't a sob story, though: he uses the opportunity to note that they've completely closed the gap on software quality for the flagship device, launching new firmware first in Norway where the response has been positive. Considering that the N97 was announced way back in 2008, there's realistically nothing Nokia can do to give the phone a second wind atop the lineup, but Vanjoki seems genuinely convinced that they've learned some hard lessons and swallowed some tough pills throughout its life cycle -- and those lessons will bear fruit when Symbian^3-based products roll around. Here's hopin
I was decieved by NOKIA. I thought Im buying the Flagship phone but suddenly NOKIA is telling us that the Nokia N97mini is their FLAGSHIP PHONE. I thought it will be alongside the N97mini and the 32GB N97.
This will be my last phone from Nokia.
Though I dont have any problems with the phone. Im just annoyed at the status of my phone. I thought it's the flagship phone and GSMarena has said the mini IS NOW the Flagship phone.
Im watching the Sony Ericsson VIVAZ PRO - same OS with keyboard and it's hopefully CAPACITIVE screen.
