Ram, 11 Dec 2009I hate this phone. Untill now I was not able to upgrade to V20, Bought in singapore, my phone ... moreRam it sounds like your phone is attached to a carrier, so you won't be able to update until your carrier approves it. call them and ask

I hate all these iphoners that think their phone must be the one and only. Get Over It and go play with your ridiculous apps.
Nokia not.Just only need to produce good phone but also to stop the iPhone hype
if n98 will still use the slow processor and little ram an no gpu then nokia will kill themselves!
N900 is too bulky, the os is amazing
n900 mini ? Nokia !
As a phone dealer I hate the N97. Today alone in 30 minutes I have had 3 N97s brought in to be sent back to Nokia for warranrty due to the phones freezing, dropping calls, refusing to unlock, refusing to charge etc. I have 20+ N97s per week brought back for warranty claims and Early Life Failure replacements, compared to maybe 1 phone from all the other brands combined. I am totally sick of customers yelling at me about their N97s failing!
The N97 could have been an awesome phone, it has some awesome features and some great capabilites, but the software is just so full of bugs and glitches that I can't in good concience recommend this phone to customers. Nokia need to create (yet another) software update to fully fix the issues this phone has. Once they do, the N97 will be a great phone.
1-The phone memory not enough too support Nokia e-mail.
2-Each times used bluetooth function and switch to fm radio found can not receive.

As I don't exactly see what Nokia stole. The N97 isn't much different from the N95 that came out long before the iphone did and the N900 is in a completely different ballpark; it's more of a tiny netbook with phone capabilities. Unless Apple is refering to the on screen sliding thing to unlock the phone when you get a call...?

Apple Countersues Nokia Over Phone Patents

NEW YORK (AP) -- Apple Inc. is suing cell phone maker Nokia Corp. for patent infringement, a countermove to Nokia's earlier suit against technologies used in Apple's iPhone.
Apple's lawsuit claims Nokia is infringing on 13 of Apple's patents, and says the Finland-based company chose to ''copy the iPhone,'' especially its user interface, to make up for its declining share of the high-end phone market.

Ram, 11 Dec 2009I hate this phone. Untill now I was not able to upgrade to V20, Bought in singapore, my phone ... moreYou're not the only one who's waiting, I also have a N97 bought in Singapore but it's a Malaysian product code 0586199 for the black model, bought it in Singapore airport. There are hundreds of product codes unfortunately we seem to be the last each time there is an update. Check out the N97 threads in the Nokia Users forum to see how many product codes there are. http://www.nokiausers.net/forum/nokia-n97/27726-n97-product-codes.html
Ram, 11 Dec 2009I hate this phone. Untill now I was not able to upgrade to V20, Bought in singapore, my phone ... moreDon't worry you're not the only one waiting, I also have a N97 bought in Singapore Airport which is a Malaysian black, product code 0586199, I've wrote to Nokia requesting that we're first on the list for the next upgrade after V20 but I very much doubt thast will happen. There are hundreds of product codes and we always seem to be the last cab off the rank. C
Ram, 11 Dec 2009I hate this phone. Untill now I was not able to upgrade to V20, Bought in singapore, my phone ... moreyeah it's quite irritating that others have a chance of having their phone aquire the latest fixes and addons thru sw update, while others may not. Had the same exp in the past. It's as if we're being left behind... As to you Ram, youre in that situation sadly....
Correct me if im wrong, but you may have bought the fone locked to one network carrier. In this case the latter usually does not permit any future sw update from nokia, without them modifying such update first to suit their "network" needs. (sigh)
As such you'll have to wait (usually takes forever) forthis network to approve the latest sw.
