got the n97 and its a sweet looking phone BUT I think its slow unfortunately and that's not even taking the data connection in account. The phone itself I find is slow. Its not that I dont like the phone overall, its just that I expected more of it. Thinking about buying a new phone and expecting performance? look for something with a higher CPU speed > 434MhZ. I cant say the N900 will be the answer cuz it has a completely different OS that I know nothing about so I predict another trial and error story. I tested the i8910 and its nice and quite fast so I suggest that one as an alternative. Hope my comments help!
Got a problem with maps. I keep getting an error that i have no internet connection when I AM online? Is it maybe because I am not using the data connection as yet? Please confirm somenone. Thanks in advance!
Good design, good picture design, But not thumbable enough, and really really slow and Laggy.. Needs more RAM and processing power. Iphone 3GS is soo much faster and seamless. I hope N900 will not dissapoint me.
To those concern about sales figures pls wake up as they dun make u richer, remember we're all just consumers.
Cant wait for firmware 2.0 anywys for my gorgeous & fantastic N97.
Have a nice day.

I have windows 7 on my laptop. On OVI the usb mode requests me the whole time to switch to PC Suite Mode, and then it doesnt sync. Even though it is on PC Sync mode... Any advice?

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970N97 is better because you can use it with any software and i phone only works with apple software i see this as limiting
worst phone ever by nokia. better buy a nokia 5800 same software only difference is the slider.
trust me everyone i work for nokia care india this is just a waste of money.
people go for any other hanset or buy a sonyericsson thats much better than nokia feature wise and battery back up wise.
please dont buy this phone.

Anonymous, 10 Sep 2009N900 is a different story, and it's open as hell. You can do anything you want with it.Unlocked N97 and N900 are very similar in price. I think when N900 is finally shipping that will lower the prices on N97. If N900 will be sold thru t-mobile with contract, then the choice is clear. Otherwize I like S60 better so far. Being open doesn't bring value to me since I will not be modifying the system on the phone my-self.
honestly am very disapointed with this phone, it freezes and malfunction at will. Not a good advert for nokia after such high hopes, i will high light four major deffects on this 1. the touch screen is no where near iphone, 2.it freezes and nothing will work until u remove battery and reboot, 3.the camera night mode is flawed and useless, 4.sometimes the phone just tells u that u are out of memory even when your phone is empty, then your contacts just freezez. Honestly i feel so cheated by nokia and if i have my way i will sue them heavily for deceiving a lot of people. IF YOU SEE THIS PHONE RUN WITH YOUR MONEY
