i think Nokia first announced that the N97 will be WinMo OS, didn't it?
Fat Elvis, 12 Jun 2009This doesn't even begin to compare to the Samsung i8910HD Omnia HD. What are they thinking?... moreI liked omnia HD in the beginning but not anymore. Have samsung fixed the horrible audio. No HDMI output and gsm arena review says the battery can come out easily.
This doesn't even begin to compare to the Samsung i8910HD Omnia HD.
What are they thinking?!
More to the point, why are you lot thinking of getting an out of date phone?!
And i thought Nokia were a top company....
Shame as they were for years but if this is all they can muster as their flagship phone then they're on a slow downward spiral. This is out of date spec-wise 6 months before it's release!!!!
Looks like the middle eastern manufacturers are showing everybody what to make before they think of it!
P.s. i am not an iPhone fanboi!!! They're even worse!!!
I have an n79 right now, how good is the speaker on the n97 compared to my phone? thanks
The US version is available. It's in store now but only the black one. Can't wait!
therock, 11 Jun 2009because the iphone is locked and the feature is less. that is why att carries it.
the n-... moreAt least Apple has the balls to tell phone networks where to go with their custom firmware and printing phone company names names on the case.
Why don't they make a CDMA version, cripple the wifi and launch on Verizon?
Anonymous, 11 Jun 2009Have a look at ATT financials, they are printing billions with the Iphone, if the Nokias were... moreatt have used nokia phones in the past before the iphone was created. now nokias are back with the release of the e71.
Raj, 11 Jun 2009can anybody tell n 86 8megapixel or this n97 or any good phn thn this . . . wht does the price... moreMeans that the phone is expensive or affordable,plase your mouse cursor on the money symbol and see the price!

the n-series has a lot more to offer. again, nokia prefers the n-series to be unlock to have unlimited features. IT IS UP TO NOKIA TO HAVE ATT LAUNCH ANY N-SERIES. IT WILL BE GREAT A IDEA THOUGH for sales. att released one nokia e series....the e71x.
the feature is different (att feature) from the original e71. the e71x is locked and limited. therefore it is much cheaper. that is the first nokia smartphone to be release through att. i have thought of nokia and att, but i never thought it would happen. i bet you an n-series will probably be launch by att.
an unlock iphone will cost about the same as an n-series. an n-series is more worth than any unlock iphone.
again most of att smartphones suck. if i am to buy a smartphone through att, it will be the e71x because it has more features than the iphone.
my n95 and 5800 are awesome.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970due on o2 26th june. you cant get it directly from o2 as they dont want competition with the iphone but carphonewarehouse are offering it
Got the N97 from NYC flagship on the first day of release in US(9th June).
So didn't play around a lot but this is what I have so far.
The phone looks impressive with the sliding keypad.
The qwerty key pad is comfortable. If it is not, them it is just a matter of getting used to it.
No serious issues so far except for the battery life. Drains faster in UMTS mode.So I changed to GSM mode. Still drains faster. I am still observing the battery life based on my usage.
therock, 11 Jun 2009funny how people are commenting this smartphone is a crap because att doesnt carry it like the... moreHave a look at ATT financials, they are printing billions with the Iphone,
if the Nokias were so good they would use Nokias....
