[deleted post]I dont doubt your N97 is working, i guess it only has some scratches on the lens, the lens cover scratches it when opening/closing, very big design flaw, together with the keyboard mechanism N97 should be a winner of industrial "design flaw prices", and still this keyboard is to be found in E7 as well.
N97 is slow, terrible graphics, low res display, terrible touch UI, the two mentioned design flaws, and watever. E7 copied all the bad things from N97, and left out the good things (internal storage size, card slot and camera). Im surprised that Nokia didnt add the lens-scratcher also in E7, when they were already putting together all the flaws they could find from previous models. The good thing is that Nokia finally realized that no1 want resistive touchscreens anymore and that ppl of today want a GPU.
Take an hour with an N900 and you will hate your N97, N900 is touch/qwerty done right, it has a solid GPU and fast processor and a real OS and ADEQUATE SCREEN RESOLUTION!
n9 bater than e7 so please wait for n9 1.2 ghz 12mp 64gb and many more.
You have not said anything about reaching 3 billion pages served.

Everything was better actually. And N97 is already selling dirt cheap second hand coz noone want them, one of the worst fones ever, and E7 is worse.
im so tired of hearing that Symbian dont need fast processors, it wasnt true before and it isnt true now. If there were magical ways to execute CPU instructions from an OS then everyone would do it, but there is no such magic, meet reality guys, stop dreaming up lies.

This is not going the right direction, E7 is much weaker than N97 relative to its time of launch.

You buy a Android phone only because you like the dual-core processor and the high ROM and RAM it uses, that's total bullsh*t man.
Symbian dominated the smartphone market (even till now) because it does not require dual-core processors, higher RAM and ROM and better batteries, along with cheap install costs and ease of usage.
awosem fully lodad features, cmplete office . email suported .good diplay symbain 3 is very gog
it would be perfect business solution if it only had an autofocus,and maybe a bit higher screen resolution....business phone witch can not take pictures of documents,major drawback.......sorry for my bad english

Does Nokia kidding with the world?
They postpone their phone release to 2011 Q1 with these low standard specifications and very high price while Samsung, LG , Motorola making high specifications with same price!
What with the FPS and Processor speed and the resolution!
And i do not care if Symbian requires low speed processors, So they should sell it with the half price since they put slow processors.
Those cheaters NOKIA i hope they breakdown soon
Mostly all brands are going in the android direction(sony e,motorola,Lg,samsung,htc etc..)the blackberry has its own network and OS so does the apple iphone
But nokia is soo rotten old with the same interface and same features that are available in other brands so nokia is better expected to patch it up and present somethng worthy the 500 or 600 or 800 dollars that we are paying for them !!!!!
for me i have tried the blackberry,the htc,the samsung,and the motorola phones and they are amazing each having its own glamor and shine on the other hand i have owned too many nokias and they are not so surprisingly the same!!!!
so for me i am not buying this phone or the N8 or any other if nokia is still planning on going in the crappy way that it is heading which is down the dumpster
Anonymous, 20 Jan 2011It doesn't need a card slot! hello! it has 8gb so that is more than enough! what do you want t... moreyou are thinking yesterdays usage of storage, thats long ago now. Until 2 months ago i had N900, 32gb storage, 27gb of it for user files. It wasnt enough, i had to use additional 8gb card, and still i wanted a 32gb card.
16gb was the storage of n96, thats like a distant past already, it was right after Fred Flint retired iirc, and 16gb was enough at the time with the capabilities of n96. USB-OTG is a mess, we also have that on N900 but its not being used in real life, its just a fun gimmik you will test once or twice an then forget about it. Bringing cabels is not practical still, then i rather have an extra memcard in the wallet. cant fit cables+flashdrives in the wallet.
No memory slot takes away all the joy.
16 gb mass memory + no memory slot, in the year 2011 is not enough. Nokia have missed a trick here.
kings93, 20 Jan 2011E7 and C7 camera is same?? becoz i facing the problem is cnt capture document word at my c7 ... moreE7 and C7 are using fixed focus camera, any macro shots closer than 30cm from your camera lens will turn blur. Only Autofocus camera on Nseries in close up mode can take such document shots.
