This isnt a phone. Its a mini laptop. The best in the business. The only phone that comes close is htc hd, but its still inferior to n97 in some vital points, especially the 0S. Its got the good battery of e71 and the power saving symbian 0S. Im sure it will use a ti omap processor (like most n-9x series). This phone puts all the current 8mp cameraphones to shame. Congratulations nokia for this magnificent news.
Such a fuss for that??? Countdown and all??? Sorry, I found it hugely disappointing... nothing new, below expectations, just another PDA for symbian people. Why is it called N97? It´s a N Series? To see the CEO talking about Wi-fi, customization, touch screen,... as if it were great accomplishments is hilarious... I feel Nokia lost its track. Shame...
wud hv been nice if it was capacitive touchscreen. i can live without the handwriting feature especially with a qwerty. oh well, still wna hv 1 asap
lol whats gna happen is lots of apple fans r gna keep sayin y iphone is so much better. then several sites r gna ask the question: is this the iphone killer? then they r gna come to the conclusion that its not bcos they r apple fanboys. the cycle does get annoying. for some reason all new high end phones lately r being compared to the iphone (a phone that still cant record video, has a useless bluetooth, no mms, no sms forwarding, no copy and paste... but it is still gna b considered the best phone by many bcos ???)
First off, about the 8MP vs. 5MP camera. Quit deluding yourself. 5MP gives you a bigger picture than anyone really wants. Unless you are using your 55” plasma as a digital photo frame, what matters is compression matrix, color matching and focal length. In all of these Nokia wins hands down! Backed with a 32GB storage, TV out and a 16M colors 360 x 640 pixels screen; why are we still having this discussion? Symbian is a much better operating system but I still use MS Office files for all of my work. And would it kill you to put in the better HSDPA so that I can run at 7.2!!! That being said it is a lot lighter than most of its “TRUE” competition and unlike the Blackberry Storm, it should actually work well! Go Nokia!
as long as it doesnt follow the awfull software problems of the n96 and n96 and the battery is decent nokia will have a class leader the touchscreen wait payed off i wonder whether it will have a resistive or capacitive touch screen tho
why just nokia is late to provied us with the 8mpixels cam phone that able to cam 120 fps video?
why just nokia produce many phones with the same features tjis n97 the same of n95 and n95 8gb n96 and n85 n82 n79..! what is the diffrence ? is that the sahpe all with the same advantages 5mp cam carl size and 30fps vedio that w-lan and gps recibver is that the diffrent phones poweredee by diffrent vergions of operating system? or that make this phone special from this is the disadvandages of each phone...hehehehehehe...!
nokia is the phone i like to use always it si one of there best phones in there world
The thing is, people can come in and compare it to this or that Windows Mobile device, or iPhone, or whatever, but the people who are here and excited are so because they're Symbian users and really like Symbian devices. Sure, there are probably better Windows Mobile phones out there, but I don't care for Windows Mobile. Maybe you like the iPhone better, but I don't. For me, a person who enjoys his Symbian phones... this little guy looks great.
It dont have an 8mp...So WHAT ???Carl Zeiss is in the house so it will be nice..dont care what HTC SE and Samsung are making they still suck so does windows mobile (puke)!!!!
This is the new king of smartphones :)
Nokia Strikes back...Well Done :)

5800 is already in the market. with a
TFT touchscreen, 16M colors... more+0.3" is a big thing! you are not a big thing.
look the n95 -> n95 8gb. it is 0.2" and is makes a huge diference.
I had a nokia N80 and it's CPU is ARM 206Mhz, I did compare converting and generating .mp4 files, the same files also in my Tablet PC PIII 800Mhz the nokia did it faster in some points, but of course PIII is faster in other things!
ARM9 CPU 206Mhz = about PIII 700Mhz!
ARM9 CPU 369Mhz = about PIV 1.5Mhz? I em not sure, cos I never had one of this processor devices!
See, If you take for example HTC touch Pro, it has 622Mhz CPU, but if you try to play videos on it or record videos its very choppy and it's skipping frames, and is delaying the sound, that means it's not device to trust on quality!
The Nokia ARM CPU and symbian system it's very strong and stable a device you can relay and trust it!
hi, 02 Dec 2008samsung omnia was released on august having 32gb total memory and rest specs r almost same as ... moreDid you forget that omnia has WM (witch is not a really god thing) a smaller screen and no qwerty!
Anonymous, 02 Dec 2008answer to iphone vs N97 2.0mp fixed vs 5.0mp auto cannot record vs can record VGA quality ... moreStop bullsh*ting, there is no such thing as HTC phone with 1gb ram, 800 proccesor and 80gb memory!!! Phones like that will not appear for 1.5 years or more.
Over in xperia forum someone said that the results are false cause the fone had votes before it was released,,yet this not has got nearly 800 in one day and thats not released..The votes show interest in the device in a way and its a healthy battle but lets see what happens in february,,if its superb it will sell well.What interests me more is that now nokia have started doing touchscreens nokia fans can get touchscreens and we can all be one big happy touchscreen family..
No doubt this phone will get good ratings fo' sure! ;D
GAAHHH GAAHHH they better be making 256MB RAM & 520MHZ processor for that huge 32GB!! -0- or else i better be going for 5800 instead. sometimes these N series specs just hides the RAM & processor away. -__-"
I want that Black Chic!!! x]
