It's advisable to store the themes in phone memory instead so you can delete it. That was my problem also with my N82 until I found out about it from a forum.
Majid, 11 Nov 2009Go for N97,but make sure to get an original one and test it fully before you buy it.Ya finaly I decided to go with n97..w995 z a gud fone as well but unfortunately it lacks a good browser ..(though it is faster)...yah.. :) can these experets tell me how can we identify an original handset?? Is there a way to identify it by IMEI CODE?? tell me all the possible ways to identify wether the handset is original or not?? Thanx in advance...posihdbxm
i wanted to know about touch screen quality and life of n97 and found few posts comparing profitability of apple and nokia - is it a serious feature to compare before buying? - is mobile fone a financial product? No offence.
Is there any other reason y i shud consider i-fones over nokia?
Are i fones better in quality and reliability? Or any other
Some questions for N97 users please :
1. How long does the battery last with 'average' use : few short calls, 1 hour on teh browser & a few photos?
2. Can themes be UNINSTALLED easily ? I had a N73 & couldnt uninstall themes.
3. how effective is the Geo-tagging feature. If there is a problem with the GPS as reported in other posts, then this must effect how often the photos get tagged as well? - this is an important feature for me (Geotagging)
4. Is there a car cradle in the box to mount the handset on your windscreen ( like a Garmin )?

The sliding mechanism is pretty sturdy, and unless you mistreat the phone then it should be fine. I've had mine since july and have no problems, and have even dropped the phone once or twice from a height of abt half a metre. Of course we'll have to wait and see how it fares after a couple of years' use...but by then im sure most people would have new phones anyway...
Anyone knows if the sliding and supporting structure of N97 will malfunction or stop working after a prolonged use?

A company like Nokia, which has been the market leader for about two decades, doesn't just go crashing down overnight. They're not the number one mobile phone company in the world for nothing. I do agree with the poster who said that apps are the way of the future, and this is one key area that Nokia really need to work on - the Ovi store is years behind the App store, and many of the apps are just too expensive!
Pocket-lint reports that UK wireless provider Orange is claiming that it has sold over 30,000 iPhones as of 4:00 p.m. on launch day for the carrier, reportedly smashing records for one-day mobile phone sales. The news comes via a Twitter post from Conor Maples, a member of Orange's communications team.
Orange UK had sold more than 30k iPhones,smashing what we believe is the previously published first day sales records for a phone in the UK!
Telephony Online reports on data from research firm Strategy Analytics that places Apple as the most profitable mobile phone manufacturer in the world for the third quarter of 2009. Apple's estimated $1.6 billion profit easily topped Nokia's $1.1 billion take for the quarter.
The firm estimates that Apple's iPhone operating profit came in at $1.6 billion in Q3, while Nokia recorded only $1.1 billion in operating profit. "With strong volumes, high wholesale prices and tight cost controls, the PC vendor has successfully broken into the mobile phone market in just two years," said analyst Alex Spektor in the research note.

By Sebastian Rupley | Tues... moreThe iPhone’s success has everything to do with the huge and healthy ecosystem of great applications available for it. Strategy Analytics’ estimates only highlight how many ways Nokia, by comparison, has dropped the ball. For example, the company announced plans to focus on a new, open-source version of the Symbian operating system more than a year ago.
Fast-forward to today, and the Symbian Foundation has only recently open sourced the operating system’s microkernel. Meanwhile, Nokia reported terrible financial results for its latest quarter, capped by a 31 percent decline in North American sales. If the Finnish handset maker had a more fleet-footed, organized operating system and application strategy, it might have avoided having its lunch eaten by Apple.

Apple became the world’s most profitable handset vendor in the third quarter of this year, reports Strategy Analytics. “We estimate Apple’s operating profit for its iPhone handset division stood at $1.6 billion in the third quarter of 2009,” wrote analyst Alex Spektor. That means Apple overtook Nokia, whose operating profit came in at just $1.1 billion. As Spektor noted, “With strong volumes, high wholesale prices and tight cost controls, the PC vendor has successfully broken into the mobile phone market in just two years.”
