Anonymous, 21 Jun 2009As posted before, why do you think the 3 most powerful phone manufactuers chose to have Symbia... moreBecause they CANNOT get mac OS, and Mac OS is the reason Iphone is an OUTSTANDING success from a company, Apple that is a newcomer in the phone market.
Why do you think they sold more than one billion Apps in one year starting from scratch, because Symbian is DEAD !

SE Satio - Symbian
sumit, 21 Jun 2009why doesn't made window mobile and more than 8 megapixel ? WinMo is only targeted @ business, besides it would lag as hell, since the most of the horsepower goes to running the WinMo OS.
Pepsi, 21 Jun 2009cocacola! =D N97 mini sounds like fun ^^Hi pepsi! :D.. judging by the name we should become a sworn enemy Lol.. instead there's a war between autobot's n97 vs decepticon's iphone going on.. and we're joining the good cause.
Best phone ive had in a long time. The keyboard is perfect size. Can type very fast on it. Very small learning curve. There is a bit of lag time, but that goes for about every phone out right now. Switched from iphone to this. REally enjoying this phone

I have been using the Kensington charger ... moreit's only common sense, if you're using your iphone or any phone while it's charging, it won't charge properly.
That user in your link even said after 70 minutes kensington was completely discharged the iphone battery was only up to 50%.
Using while charging, you are giving and taking away at the same time. Lesson over for you now. Keep coming back here in this forum ,I'll repeat the lesson.
cocacola, 21 Jun 2009I went to N97 launch in my country yesterday. and for the first time I got to touch it :). The... moreYou're right the keypad does look bigger online, but blackberrys keys might even be smaller and people can seem to type quick on those.
Probably just takes time getting used to, like everything else.
Thanks for your input!
I would like to go for N97, this section is quite useful in understanding the performance of the piece. It would be great if anyone could share the price of N97 in rupees? Thanks, MSV
iolo003, 21 Jun 2009iPhone mania is waning, Times reported that only few bunch came out on its launching event eve... moreThey will sell over 500,000 iPhones this weekend.
I have been using the Kensington charger for months now and it works, as I said I can use my iPhone 24/7 if I want just using my spare battery, btw it does gain charge as I'm using it, even when playing games.
I went to N97 launch in my country yesterday. and for the first time I got to touch it :). The colour.. if you really see it yourself and not just the picture.. I think the white one has brighter appearance, while black looks bit dull. The touch screen is under par. quite good, it's also responsive the moment I touched it. Just in one instance when I was trying to log in to face book, and I tapped the email address section, it didn't respond. After couple of times I asked the nice girl who standby next to me. She closed the qwery keyboard, started from the beginning and it worked this time. But funny thing is I could not find _ (underscore) in the qwerty keyboard.. Does anyone know how?? I have to find it on virtual keyboard (I thought virtual keyboard was QWERTY but no.. it's just like ordinary keypad. if you want 'c' letter then you must tap 3 times yeah..). And when I went to web browser and tried to scroll the page with my hand, it didn't move at first. Then I remember that N97 is resistive so I put little more pressure with my finger and it scrolled smoothly.. The build design is nice and slim (not as bulky as I thought), and also fits perfectly on average palm size. I give "8" for overall features. the price in my country is Rp. 7,990,000 (Usd 775), on launching day you got Usd 50 discount with credit card and 6 month payment with 0% interest. Oh.. I forgot to tell.. one more thing about qwerty keyboard, it's not that easy to use.. Looks big and spacious in picture but if you type it yourself it's a different story. Not that bad, and maybe given time you'll get used to it. But it could do better with 4 rows. Anyway, Ialso heard the news about N97 mini, but no luck yet to know the specs. Cheers guys..
