I bought thru Nokia USA. Right now show black and white selling at 10% off. They are selling the second year warranty for $19.95 - combined total of $110 off. Then they added three day shipping for free. I ordered yesterday. Confirmed shipment by FedEx today.
ian, 15 Jun 2009im planning to buy this phone is it really worth it? can anyone enlighten me...pleaseI suggest you not to buy it thought Nokia webpage, their customer service sucks, I saw on the nokiaus.com the N97 was on stock and order it overnight shipping, I've been waiting for more than a week, called them everyday and they don't even bother unswearing the phone. Today finally someone picked up, and after I told them I want to check on my order status they just hung on me without saying a word.

It’s hi... morewho gives a rats ass about what professionals think?
as long as the user likes it that's all that matters..
how hard can a keypad be to learn?? or were u planing to type like a full pc keyboard and look at the screen all the time??
ive bought this phone and there is a serious defect , it's touch screen is very bad and when you touch it with the touch pen the colours of the screen vanish , so dont buy this phone plz
after u read this u r such a stupid to believe that :D lol
The most exciting and anticipated handset of this year so far! N97
I think this phone is too expensive, I am a nokia fan, not going to think about it unless the price drops, have a limit on the amount I would pay for a phone, that being said I think this a great phone, would be a waiting on a complete review to see how it does against the competition.
I managed to get one on a short test.The phone would be great if it just wouldnt be that slow :/ i hope they fix this in the next firmwires.
The camera is good it makes equal quality to n82,the qwerty keyboard is also awesome,so is the music player and video player itself.
The browser could render the pages faster,but thats not that big of a issue.
The ts sensivity is poor compared to a lg arena or an iphone,but i think they will fix this.
It is a worthy phone to buy but i will whait a little bit to see if the new fws fix that problems,until im cool with my n95.
when is n97 coming into nigeria cos i have been waiting for it since last year and am tied of using my old n95. please it very urgent that i get a reply soon. and how am i supposed to differenciate the original from the fake ones?
thanks nokia for a job well done. The response time from what i have seen is very good.

Im living here in mid-east--oman.
Oman mobile & Nawras operato... moreIan - I am not sure when it wil be available in Oman, but I do know the UAE is one of the 75 initial launch countries, so I assume it won't be long after (end June/early July?).
You ask if it is worth it. Depends on price in your region. It is a great phone. I will admit the iPhone and Pre's OS touch interfaces are a lot more user friendly and geared towards the touchscreen comapred to the Symbian, but when it comes to specs there is no phone currently available that beats the N97.
Some have better cameras, some have faster HSDPA internet (where available), but look at the whole spec list and the N97 comes out tops currently. It is the great techie phone. It might not have the fastest CPU or the most RAM, but if you level out all the specs - storage/CPU/connectivity/camera/radio/bluetooth/WiFi/GPS etc - it is a technological first.
