If Nikia want to monopolize the touch screen phone, they must announce capacitive phone this September! Anyway, n97 is the best resistive touch screen phone!
Wonder If we will see multitouch phone from nokia? And capacitive screen phone? Higher clock speed CPU and higher ram?
1,2 september see you there!!!!
I heard from some one Guy, Is it true?
I am sure you guys are all interested to know how testing has been going, and we are pleased to report that at the labs the new fw is ready, and we are finalising the upgrade and distribution method ready for this Wednesday
There have been over 100 fixes and improvements, I shall cover the main ones:
the lock/unlock/backlight bug has been fixed. This was caused by the handset not reporting autolock correctly and thought it was still unlocked, despite the backlight being switched off which is independant. When users were trying to unlock their handset, they were infact locking it, and then unlocking it.
There have been some subtle changes to the way the interface responds. For example, the phonebook now has kinetic scrolling, and swiping the screen sideways to hide the homescreen has been taken further, so that swiping when in primary functions such as phonebook, application menu and a few others will revert the screen back. This is also the case for the web browser. The way the home screen and main menus were rendered has also been refined. Screens will load up quicker, and the phone will use idle time between user presses to load items just off screen, scrolling is also much improved by this.
Nokia Maps application has been given a new look, while positioning accuracy has been improved. The time taken from starting the application to getting a lock has been improved, with times around 8 seconds or less when in combination with A-GPS. The door-to-door has also been improved, with walking routes giving audio feedback as well, direct to house.
When the phone went through different primary connections for data, such as 3g packet, or Wifi, certain widgets became stuck in a loop where they continuously recieving a null from the previous connection method. The phone has a new feature for developers that 'shouts' when a connection is changed, in addition to lost. The widgets have been updated accordingly and we have updated our knowledge base accordingly.
When large videos were played through quickly, sometimes the screen went black as the video information could not sync up with the raw video data quick enough. This was especially apparent when skipping through multiple videos quickly. This has been addressed by caching the first 30 frames of each video before allowing playback to commence and we have had no problems of this kind.
Community made applications that began on phone start up, and then got stuck in an error loop were unable to terminate or uninstall. We have addressed this by adding a terminate now feature to the application menu. When switching application, holding down on the application will display the option to do so.
The pictures and video clips made with the phone sometimes did not update in the photo/video library after files had been manually added via a transfer. This was due to the way in which files were counted and stored by phone conflicting with the number of files present on the device and has been resolved.
Text messaging now has the option to confirm sending once the green button/send button is pressed. An option was also added to prevent accidental sending of blank messages.
The symbols menu has been updated to include french, german and spanish special characters.
H264 decoding is now supported! The ovi suite has also been updated to automaticly convert most common video formats to the native phone display resolution and format.
And a big one last for you guys...
Multitouch support has been added. The paint application has been updated to show this in practical use, and photos can be zoomed in and out by squashing or streching the image. Again the knowledge base was updated to provide developers the new input fuction should they wish to take advantage.
Quoted from the Mobile Review forums...
@Allan: yes they will invent the fire extinguisher very soon..
This page has turned into a real kindergarden with all the name calling and fake name posting nonsense.
Get a grip guys. It is just a cell phone. You are really making it quite unpleasant for us who is here to discuss the phone by having us have to filter through all this childish rubbish.
Maybe Mommy should limit your computer time so that you can go play out all this energy outside instead of wasting everybody's time in here.

Hi everyone i would like to share something with you all
Apple's iphone sales are mostly generated from usa and not the rest of the world on the other hand nokia's is more of international sales so if you think apple has out sold nokia cause usa and att said so your really dumb cause the figures are only being generated from one place and they can't even count properly
Ei.the florida votes for bush
Numbers from Usa means nothing since it's only one part of the world
Hi !! u can grab it from The Mobile stores....they are selling it at a very cost effective rates.. only 32,399...that is less than NPD(s)
Allan, 03 Jul 2009Thats ridiculous. Gsm arena is not biased to nokia. I felt their review of n97 didn't do it justice.Yaa, even i feel so. And one more thing i noticed is that in evry nokia review, they mention "Main disadvantages" but that part is not present in any Samsung reviews(except the M7600 beat dj).
But all said, this is the most unbiased site i have ever come across.
Anonymous, 03 Jul 2009Of course they are as it is evident that they support only Nokia, but what matters is the 3GS ... moreas evident, u are biased and not gsmarena......u will fight any and everyone who points out flaws in ur brand.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Hehe....after n97 and 5530, i assume your next target will be 5800....good luck.
I really hope that se pays u for the effort u are putting in for them.

@Allan: no use to reply this ishleeperry comments.. he doesn't even has a ball to mention his name. like all crazy sheeps who get lost in civilization they are.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Just goes to show how stupid apple is in this regards. No other cell phone model has a battery that can't be replaced.
if ever i need to swap a battery in my n95, I'm not stuck to a charger or some aftermarket thing to attach to my phone.
Kensington user reports. Battery on iphone 3g down to 10^. Takes 70 minutes to bring iphone 3g up to only 50%. Using iphone 3g at same time as kensington. You won't gain very well.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Numnuts, it's not even replacable. You can't even swap a low one for a fully charged one. Kensington won't help you much either. Man you are stupid.
i was the fan of SYMBIAN PHONES.. .LIKE NOKIA N96 N85 N,73, N82 etc.
but when i started the using phone of I-Mate Which is WINDOWS MOBILE phone.
i am now fan of it. now there is not any attraction in Symbian phones.
WINDOWS MOBILE or POCKET PC PHONES Are superb.
When i saw this N 97 I wished it must be Pocket PC. but it is symbian phone :( Quite Disappointing. WHy nokia are not making Windows Mobile Firmware instead of Old SYmbian Phones.?
Can Anyone help me out about this please?
