Anonymous, 04 May 2009please tell me why you consider low cpu + winmo is a smart phone? what is the line? and, what... morebecause windows mobile is more of a business tool-phone, personal computer capabilities on mobile handsets. symbian is simply a fashion type os and is not fully equipped with every function you need for comfortable email and Internet use, and it even dont have its own device-independent development platform.
maybe if a symbian phone will have a very good cpu specs, it will be faster and will be capable to do more things without lagging vs another symbian underpowered phone.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970please tell me why you consider low cpu + winmo is a smart phone? what is the line? and, what about HTC touch pro2 which have similar design to n97 ( i think they copy cat it). this phone is winmo and what do you think about it in comparison? thanks man.
nokia is for midrange phones! they are the best in midrange phones. they cannot compete with smartphone world. their n-series and e-series phones are nokia's higher class midrange phones. its better than midrange but less of a smartphone. thats the damn truth! so dont ever call n97 a smartphone because its not! no smartphone will have a low cpu specs and a symbian OS combined! thats a big joke!! maybe either one can be considered, like a faster cpu with symbian os can be considered a smartphone, or a low cpu but a windows mobile deviceis a smartphone. but low cpu and symbian os combined?? haha!! thats a joke!
Lolage, 03 May 2009wat do u guys think of the blackberry storm compared to the tocco ultra, the idou, the n97 or ... morethe storm is garbage, dont know about the n97 and idou obviously cuz they arent out yet but i have a feeling they will be way better then the storm

Anonymous, 04 May 2009do anyone realize that N97 using S60 , not WINMO??yea... your point? does that suprise you? Nokia is known for using s60 on its phones
Anonymous, 02 May 2009who needs an upgrade if we already have a phone with high speed cpu? nokia shouldn't go for su... moreI do fully agree you, although I am the very first one to say and admit that Nokia does put very good quality phones that they certainly do. HOWEVER There is A Big BUT
Which is that as Good as they are and my god they are They also do severely need to wake up, fire there present phone disigners being that there all very handicapped and slow in life. And simply Hire some new talent that will be modern with it, and also advnaced that they will not be needing to be foolishly copying very cheap phones as they have been doing especially with that super cheap looking New E75, wow my God that is an exact cheap clone to what samsung calls the rant with sprint, of the Gravity for T-Mobile, MY God Nokia,
You guys the #1 In Quality so why the heck are you ding bats settling for such substandard designs that have gone out with gone with the wind?
PLEASE, PLEASE< I am begging a Good company that makes Excellent quality phones to #1 - Fire ALL There ding bat designers, 2) Kill 90% of the entire and mostly the cheaper line, as well as the majority of the N- Series and also E- Series Phones and to start completely fresh. And Please do additionally get with it in also regards to a Good High Quality High Speed Processor, In all honesty I am so much getting tired having to make a request on my phones menu and then have enough time to make a cup of coffee, bake cookies, and even have time to go to the bathroom before that may officially be completed.

even diehard nokia fans will shun n97 if its slow and buggy..we are sick of it nokia,.same old story
it says MIDP 2.0 but official specs say MIDP 2.1
Also some other features and support is missing, for FULL DETAILED SPECS, go here http://www.forum.nokia.com/devices/N97
This phone is gonna be great. It has the good battery so all these functions will actually be able to play and and phone won't die in less than a day like th eN96 does. CPU is good, although i loved the 3D accelerator from n95 but i guess if it works on n86 well i have no complaints. Keyboard is welcome, and touchscreen as well. wondering why it has Flash lite 3.0 and not 3.1 like on the N86. Wish it also had the 8MP camera, why doesn't it have that? they should have both dual LED for video recording and Xenon flash, would make this phone PERFECT. but i guess no such thing as perfect eh?. Also no OLED screen which is weird since N85 and N86 have it and all new phones too, more vibrant and saves energy and can be Bright. so we will lose that benefit, maybe N98 will have the imperfections. ALthough i noticed after nokia has a really good phone they release a bad one right after it. example , N95 8GB (good) --> N96 (bad)

and people don't realize that Mobile OSs that are optimized and specifically made for mobiles work the best and the reason they underclock most CPUs on mobiles is so their hands dpn't melt or their pant's go on fire with a super hot CPU and the battery starts getting hot
if the CPU is overclocked that means the OS is garbage but the phone is good
XD i noticed that alot
ei. HTC touch HD - good phone garbage OS WinMo 6.1 XD
iphone - nice looking phone garbage OS
OSx mobile..which apple fails to mention all the time lol
the only two mobiles that never need overclocking for their OSs is RIM's BB and Nokia's Cell phones
and i'm not sure but when i checked the N97's specs i saw 256RAM not 128 or 192
and a few months till it comes 434Mhz is fine specially for Nokia's Symbian S60
I must say, I am very disappointed with the company's decisions. I am a promoter and have been toying around with their different phones.
The processor in n97 is severely underpowered and I have no doubt many will complain about the slowness.
Meanwhile the build-in web browser highly unstable and cannot render some webpages correctly. Mini-opera will display webpages better but doesn't work well with the E75 or 5800 and crashes. The qwerty on the E75 doesn't work with mini-opera too.
Furthermore, no DIVX on a multi-media phone. Sigh.
So much for a high-end killer phone.
I think we'll never see a Nokia phone that lives up to hype and expectations. The phone can have unlimited features, but the processor will always be underpowered. Plus, the OS is not that great, compared to other OSes out there, even though everyone mostly says that the os is optimized for a mobile?! Right.... Oh well, I guess I'll wait for the Toshiba K01, touchscreen + qwerty keyboard + Snapdragon 1Ghz processor. Nokia will lose marketshare to windows mobile, and apple (can't believe I said that...)
Anonymous, 03 May 2009"lets see how fast this fone is when it's generating thumbnails" Even my 2.2ghz dual core cpu... moreFinally, someone who can face reality, this phone is underpowered and overpriced it will lag like crazy once the memory starts getting filled.
