what an outdated phone, nokia takes a lot of time to make their first touched screen phone, what a looser company............
I hope this phone comes out sooner than it's supposed to. I want this phone so bad. It will replace my iphone 3g. Many touchscreen phones have already been released saying that they're better than my iphone, but I simply ignored all of them after watching some demos. The N97 seems to be the only one that can defeat my iphone, both in functionality and UI. Although I still think that the iphone still has the smoother UI, but the N97's UI seems fluid as well, and not frustrating like those other iphone killer wannabes. The iphone's glory days are starting to dim, and hopefully, Apple would realize that restricting their customers is not a good thing =) Now that the N97 has arrived, iphone owners will surely switch to this new touchscreen marvel. Only reason why iphone owners stick with their iphones is because the iphone's UI is unmatched. Not anymore. Thanks to Nokia.
Too bad its being released soo late.. it has great features and a nice spec list along with a slick design, but thats only for now.. theres no telling what samsung or SE will release. dont get me wrong, im a fan of nokia but this phone will be out of date by the time they release it.
possible very good, but I prefer the normal keyboard like N95, N96.
one thing i really dont understand,
ive been lokoing at the w705 for quite sometime now, i liked that phone, but after looking at this great innovation by nokia, the N97, i found out the rating for this phone isnt as high compared to the w705.
i am still considering whether to buy this phone or not, because it seemed that everytime Nokia comes out with something new, and impressive i must say, they always have some problems with the phone. maybe ill just give it a month or so after the release date and see how this phone is performing before getting one. =)
anyways, congrats nokia.
Anonymous, 03 Dec 2008Joke of the decade. That outdated lump of plastic which is called N96 beat Innov 8, ha ha ha h... morei know it hurts my friend, n96 beats inno in sales by mile.. i know u believe that inno has better specs but consumers dont think otherwise, they still chose the complete n96 package than inno..nothing new.. samsung didnt find this funny thats why their droping inno price, so sad :(
Why oh Why would Nokia release this without running on HSDPA 850?? and i agree with the earlier comment 5meg camera is getting old hat now,
5 or 8 or 2 all megapixels all the same, the good thing is it's carl zeis and the real news here is the touch screen, it's about time nokia has some touchscreen devices, the battary is a little modest (6hours talk time) there is better.
i wish 1 day i'll c nokia windows mobile, knowing that symbian is all right.
but watch it guys samsung has some high quality stuff.
is there any available color and not white and brown.....damn i want it black!!!!
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970this phone is more beautiful than Sony Ericsson xperia x1 ya Jamal im not with you when you say nokia N97 is rubbish phone but i want say to you this phone is the first complete phone from Nokia .... Right this phone looks like xperia but this phone very completly phone from Nokia
Overall it’s a very interesting phone from nokia and should be a very popular phone when released.
Thanks for this born..
i think this was part of their marketing strategy. wait for every high end phone to come out first then announce their phone so people will prefer to get the ultimate phone instead of all the other crap.
