The iPhone has two Chinese keyboards, simple and traditional with handwriting input.
It's very easy to write Chinese characters with a finger and there is a dictionary which gives you a selection of possible characters.
The N97 will be priced around or above 1,000 USD/CAD when it's released.
Anyone who is a multimedia junkie would never spend that much on the N97 when the alternative iPhone is available at nearly half the price. Also, Nokia's lack in games and applications where the iPhone dominates. I'm sure Nokia would have thought about this when they decided to ensue the production of this phone.
It's clear the N97 is for the business minded who also enjoy multimedia.

It's unecessary and looks hard to use one handed.
The design looks fragile, there are openings into the phone for water and dust intrusion and it looks like the hinges and ribbon cable will cause problems when subjected to normal wear and tear.
and it resistive screen suit Asian people perfectly and consume much less battery power than capacitive one
N97 is a Fashionable device too, thank tio the Japanese desinger
I want to clarify something, the N97 is a mainstream phone, that is, its for any group of people, its physical querty makes it attractive to the business orientated people as well as the social people, who like messaging, emails, twitting and facebook. It also appeals to those multimedia orientated people because of its huge array of multimedia features, the 5mp camera, the huge 32gb video, the dedicated music chip, support for ngage gaming, etc... All these and more make it well suited for multimedia junkies.
The N97 is a multimedia computer, a multi-purpose phone. If suits everyone. Thanks

N97 forum become more active these days, the only reason is the we are close to the N97 release date!!! many ifool come here to join our celebration
when dooes Nokia announce the CPU details?
iphone can be charged when it is switched off, no vibration?(i hears that it is not strong enough), the speaker is a shit(ifool allways have missed calls:)
N97 has a excellent lous speaker, my god!
can be charged when it is switched off, i turns it off while i am sleeping
strong vibration, so not to disturb others
good for textingm, the keyboard design is excellent
fm radio, listen to local radio not over wifi , save power in this way
5mp carl zeiss, no need to carry camera with me, i just carry N97 where ever i go
N97 should be compared to Macbook Pro not icrap
macbook pro bad sides
no decent camera
no gsm 3g
cant do real player video conversion
skype app for mac not as good as PC version
N97 vs Macbook pro
i just do not have to buy a good pc for email, internet......entertainment, beacuse n97 can replace my PC and i can put in in my pocket....
N97 is targeted at a much different consumer than the iPhone. Nokia's are much much better mobile phones for business minded consumers who need to actually use all of the functions the phone has to offer.
The iPhone is for the average consumer and lacks in office applications, features and usability/compatibility. It's a pure media phone. Nothing else.
So if you're the average consumer, sure iPhone>=Nokia
But if you're business minded, Nokia>>>>>>>iPhone
