X-man, 10 Jun 2009Honestly, Apple has GREAT marketing but CRAPPY phones. Nokia has CRAPPY marketing but GREAT p... morethe amazing thing is.. no matter how crappy the new released iphone is, for instance ip3GS, there are so many crowds will queing for this phone. So that will make steve job thinking,"Why on earth should I make a lot better specs for newcoming iphone?" see appleboys are defending their master instead of pushing him to do something better. Poor apple pets, haha.. we wouldn't do that to Nokia. we keep pushing them hard and so makin them to advance and produce much better quality phones. I saw some iphone user critizing apple, but that is small minority, while majority of it barking fiercely against anyone who oppose '3GS perfect specs'. Hahaha..
jit, 09 Jun 2009one of the worst phone in my life...........Don't forget you are investing 39 k for this phone...why did you said that nokia n97 is the worst handset that you ever have i mean based on it,s speculation i can say that it,s a realy good phone so
This (N97) and a Ipod Touch combined are cheaper than the new Iphone 3GS!!!
for that kind of money id rather get a free cheap phone on contract and buy a real computer for $700
last time i checked i thought we were in a recession, overpriced if you ask me
X-man, 10 Jun 2009Honestly, Apple has GREAT marketing but CRAPPY phones. Nokia has CRAPPY marketing but GREAT p... moreThe new iPhone has a faster processor, double the RAM, double the HSDPA speed, a modern camera with touch the screen to focus on anything you want, component video out, free downloadable university courses, a modern OS, 50,000 downloadable Apps, 12,000,000 downloadable DRM free songs, downloadable movies, downloadable TV shows, a dock connector with hundreds of accessories and a lot more to come, a capacitive screen and a lot more than this slow old fashioned phone.
its very nice phone. only i,m looking that does it had Blutooth? coz i didnt seee anywhere in specification. only wondering about this...
Honestly, Apple has GREAT marketing but CRAPPY phones.
Nokia has CRAPPY marketing but GREAT phones.
Are you a smart consumer? Where do you put your money?
Anonymous, 05 Jun 2009WTF is it twice the price in Australia compared to US,m its the same phone, N97 american editi... moreI can see that you have the price for the handset in Australia - do you happen to know the release date in Australia?? I am really interested in this phone - but need to know when it will be released.

I understand that your country is deep in it, cause I live in Indonesia next to your country. Anyway, I agree, and little bit concern about N97 speed on multitasking with loaded memory. Despite all the bullish opinions, I still doubt it. I would like to wait untul x2 release but I don't know if I can wait that long.

I would like to wait until X2 released but I don't know if I can wait that long.
This phone got launched yesterday (soft launch) in Singapore. Price is SGD 1,288 (comes with music). No news yet on basic version but rumours have it that it will be SGD 200 less and operator subsidized.
Had a actual look and feel of the phone. The white is much better than black. Though they r both made from cheap plastics, the black is purely cheap looking with the plastic feel. The design is a little odd from the usual pda phones. I was eagerly waiting to get this but after looking at feel and design, might give this a miss and wait for samsung omnia HD/Omnia 2 or SE X2. I think the design n specs is much better.
HTC is also promising good phones with very executive looks and feel. Might go HTC since I'm more concerned with business type feel. If ur looking for young n trendy, then go for this.
Again, don't order this online, go and see it first before you committ. Its very different from the pics.
Anonymous, 09 Jun 2009No cause I do not live in the stone age symbian belongs to the past just like vhs commodore, ... moreI guess you didn't see all the iphone users freaking mad in the iphone 3GS forum the other day. Yes they were iphone users not nokia users. People were pissed off there wasn't nearly enough advancements. SAME BORING DESIGN for the iphone. Still no flash for the camera and screen res the same. Apple is seriously lacking behind in the screen res department. Now thats what i call stone age(apple)
Mike F. Jones, 09 Jun 2009Good news folks: I contacted NokiaUSA today and they told me that the phone has begun shipping... moreyeah, i just talked to the representative from nokiausa online, he said the black one started shipping today, and the white one will start in the next few days. exciting?
Anonymous, 09 Jun 2009I have an unlocked Iphone and when I come to the States I pay A LOT in air and data charges bo... moreOh Yeah, are you forgot something? THE DATA PLAN COST!!!!
One thing for sure, the data plan for N97 (AT&T) won't be $30/Month.
in case you were wondering n97 for the u.s. market is made in CHINA not finland wait a couple of months and save your money will be $300 less
