It's unusual for a company to publicly admit its shortcomings -- particularly a company as big, proud, and resolute as Nokia generally seems to be -- but an All About Symbian / Mobile Industry Review joint interview with Anssi Vanjoki, vice president of markets, at MWC last week painted a very different picture with regard to Espoo's views on the maligned N97. Though he says that the phone absolutely met the company's goals for sales volume and revenue, it was a "tremendous disappointment in terms of the experience quality for the consumers and something [they] did not anticipate." This isn't a sob story, though: he uses the opportunity to note that they've completely closed the gap on software quality for the flagship device, launching new firmware first in Norway where the response has been positive. Considering that the N97 was announced way back in 2008, there's realistically nothing Nokia can do to give the phone a second wind atop the lineup, but Vanjoki seems genuinely convinced that they've learned some hard lessons and swallowed some tough pills throughout its life cycle -- and those lessons will bear fruit when Symbian^3-based products roll around. Here's hopin
I was decieved by NOKIA. I thought Im buying the Flagship phone but suddenly NOKIA is telling us that the Nokia N97mini is their FLAGSHIP PHONE. I thought it will be alongside the N97mini and the 32GB N97.
This will be my last phone from Nokia.
Though I dont have any problems with the phone. Im just annoyed at the status of my phone. I thought it's the flagship phone and GSMarena has said the mini IS NOW the Flagship phone.
Im watching the Sony Ericsson VIVAZ PRO - same OS with keyboard and it's hopefully CAPACITIVE screen.
Is there any chance to load windows because I can't install dictionary

Is it possible to send the flims dirctly to the mass memary, because i send via bluetouth its firstly going to inbox, so there is no sufficent space.
Ive had my N97 now for 2 months and out of that its now been in nokia repair department for 2 weeks as my LOVELY n97 just stopped working my phone would just switch off by itself it would freeze and now the mass memory stopped working. This will be my last Nokia i ever buy. i have always bought nokia but never again. My advice dont waste your money or time on this phone. It is not worth the trouble
Stop bitching about the N97 guys! If you dont know hoe to use it, go get that iPhone or whatever its called. The N97 is one of the Best ones out There. 2 more update and BAM! say g'bye to all the problems you bitched about.
Now lets see why the N97 beats the iphone:
*FREE VOICE GUIDED NAVIGATION - FOREVER!
*Full QWERTY keyboard
Why does the iPhone beat N97?:
* Capacitive , Multi-touch screen
* Its an APPLE product
* App Store with Cheap apps
Thats the end of it! if I want those on the iphone, I'll get an iPod Touch
ncrazy, 23 Feb 2010hey guys, i want to know that "IS THERE ANY WAY TO DETECT THE ORIGINAL N97 AND FAKE N97?&... moreSimple:
*If the IMEI of your cellphone & box of nokia you buy are same it is original if not it is fake...
*If you can update your cellphone thru NSU you N97 are Original if not it is fake...
Have had the N97 for 6 months and am quite sorry I got it as it does not measure up to the n95 (I had previously) or the iphone. As a medical student I need a phone that can run medical apps and lets just say that I need them. Otherwise its a good phone aside from a couple of glitches.
