I hope the on screen QWERTY keyboard is as usable as winmo phone and apple iphone..
[deleted post]Good... Good news for n97 users... But, what happen 5800 users???? I'm sad.. Come on nokia, update the 5800 with this features, almost like 5530, the kinetic scrolling..
The 5800 is the only phone without this features, nokia is wrong, sad but true.. :(
I'm on my 4th N97, the first three have all had hardware failures (battery, gps etc) and now my 4th (which just had V12 released only a week ago) is PAINFULLY slow, camera lens has self destructed, gps takes 5-10min for a lock (if it even gets one, that's sitting next to my girlfriends Samsung HD, which gets a lock in 10-15 seconds) if i'm moving it WILL NOT get a lock. If it was only software issues i'd persevere with the phone as I love it's features and form BUT the hardware of the phone is not only VERY outdated (most phones in the same price range have minimun 2xRAM and 1.5-2x CPU processing power and many have openGL accel) BUT not only is it outdated the build quality is very dubious given my many hardware failures (and no it's not bad treatment, straight out of the box the failures have occurred and phone has been returned within 2 weeks each time) I think I shall have to say goodbye to symbian and nokia until they get their act together, after having a terrible experience with a (Very early) N95 and now this, I find it hard to believe that they are doing anything but purely selling phones based on their once good name.
Someone with the ip 3yYT at the n97 section must have blown his top off. Is there a doctor in the house.
So sad to see Apple preying on people who are backwards and technically incapable of managing a smartphone.

This move by Nokia PROVES that the iPhone was ahead of it's time.
So why did you abandon your plans to buy an N97?
Sick of fanboys, 28 Oct 2009For god's sake, you guys are like little kids. Who the hell cares which is better. Do you have... moreThe person who wrote the article cares.
Nokia who wrote the firmware update cares.
iPhone users who have had kinetic scrolling for a few years don't care, apart from Nokia fans making a big deal out of copying Apple functionality.
Anonymous, 28 Oct 2009Congratulations Apple,it only took you 2 years to get video recording.You also forgot

And it's still missing
BT file sharing

Actual GPS service from it's own company
.....etc list goes on an on
Small things like kenetics can easily come in updates if the company wants it but apple.....is a different story
For god's sake, you guys are like little kids. Who the hell cares which is better. Do you have a personal stake? Do you own stocks in Nokia/Apple? Why are you all taking it so personally?
The purpose of handset diversity is personal taste. The purpose of competition is growth. These are GOOD THINGS, stop bickering over such stupid superficial differences, and get a god damn life.
[deleted post]Hahaha! Took your comment and told you why it was wrong.
The Nokia fans are the one's who keep going on about how far behind the iPhone is, now they celebrate a catch up.
Is Nokia going backwards?
n-sheep PWND by Nokia!
josh, 28 Oct 2009I really like this handset know, if only it had the AWSOME CAMERA AND FLASH like the nokia n86... moreI thought the N900 was the new top number one n-phone?
Why you not want number one Nokia fanboy phone?
Anonymous, 28 Oct 2009hahahahaha
ownage Hahaha, the Nokia sheep are the one's who said the iPhone was behind.
So why are the big deal copying these features?
"Oooh our super advanced, top number one smartphone is catching up to the one we said was behind..."
PWNAGE among the n-sheep!
I really like this handset know, if only it had the AWSOME CAMERA AND FLASH like the nokia n86.... (as I have know) if it did I would I have got that for sure.....
And where is the update for 5800 huh?
Im tired of waiting....
Come on Nokia, you released the 5800 first.
It also became the best selling smartphone with more than 8 million users worldwide and that's how you treat us?? What a shame!!

Latest available software for Nokia N97, product code 0586707
Nokia is playing games with us n5800xm i think, i em long time symbian user for several years now, and i baught my n5800xm in january €450, not comes with music at all, there was not included the voucher in it, nither ovi.maps promotion i requested, but never resived it. Now I updated fw. to v.31.0.101 and i see they slowed down the gprs and it hangs sometime, i gues they ded with purpose, just to look loke os more faster for next time update like the n97, that's a shame for nokia kompany that is cheating us like a cheap n5800xm users, i think i just have to see for one other device, and say goodbye to nokia for ewer...
