Anyone who always used Nokia phones will be proud to have this phone, and if you flow more to Sony Ericsson phones then you will go for the X1. The trouble for me is that I like both companies. They are both at the top of the game.
Whether you need the Sony Ericsson Xperia, or Nokia N97, you get them free and at the cheapest contract price from http://www.ukmobilephonenetworks.com
Although the phone is quite packed with features but the overall feel and experience of the device is quite pathetic. For so many Bucks it looks and feels far from impressive in hand. The display too aint that impressive. I am keeping my Xperia as it looks and feels like real cool stuff and not some cheap toy that plays vintage attari games. NOKIA better hire good designers soon...
mine has frozen about 3 times a day for a week now, and sometimes when i receive calls, the screen stays blank and doesnt tell me. also doesnt play ringtone etc. i know this because i tried ringing myself.
ive been waiting since nov for this phone and am disappointed. also upgraded the firmware to no avail.
Finally another lucian on GSM arena let me say i really really want this fone i currently have an htc touch diamond and i've had it with the windows mobile 6.1 OS i would much prefer symbian but, to the last lucian guy, how are you getting the n97 are you ordering it?? plz reply.
Quote: "...iPhone Sales are also poised to break records at more than 1.7 million handsets yesterday, yet the much anticipated Nokia N97 is reported to have already exceeded the 2.6 million mark with pre-order figures reflected as high as 3.2 million units based on last week's reported figures..."
Money talks, BS walks...

Apple has not been awarded this patent yet, so Symbian, MS, Android and all the other truel OS manufacturers are free to use it to their heart's content. We be pinching away at them pics...

It took a couple of days for this to surface, but it looks like Apple was awarded yet another patent last week – a big one. Awarded on January 20th, the company scored patent number 7,479,949, which was applied for on April 18th of last year. The patent covers multi-touch functionality like pinch, rotation, and swipe.
World of Apple has the text from the patent titled "Touch screen device, method, and graphical user interface for determining commands by applying heuristics."
A computer-implemented method for use in conjunction with a computing device with a touch screen display comprises: detecting one or more finger contacts with the touch screen display, applying one or more heuristics to the one or more finger contacts to determine a command for the device, and processing the command. The one or more heuristics comprise: a heuristic for determining that the one or more finger contacts correspond to a one-dimensional vertical screen scrolling command, a heuristic for determining that the one or more finger contacts correspond to a two-dimensional screen translation command, and a heuristic for determining that the one or more finger contacts correspond to a command to transition from displaying a respective item in a set of items to displaying a next item in the set of items.
So, before you laugh document yourself !

You really this naive? Nothing is new or proprietary. Maybe Samsung can sue all cellpone makers for placing anything above a 8MP camera in their phones.
Come on people - get real.
