I didn't like my new Nokia the first time. But when I played with it for several days, I decided to keep my 5800 and give my k790a to my relative. A week or so later, I was also interested in N97, as it was showed on Youtube and other sites. I thought N97 would be better than 5800 XM. I am impressed with its physical keyboard, bigger pixel camera, and its sliding body. So I bought N97 too for a good deal ($560 before tax and ship). I've just got it today but haven't played with it yet. As I read your comment that 5800 XM is basically the same, I feel a bit dissatified with this N97. I think your comment is right, and I agree with you.
I have been using this for 2 weeks now.It is an outsatanding piece of machine.Touch response is best in the category almost at par with the iphone even after being a resistive touch compared to the capacitive touch of the iphone.Will beat HTC Blackbery and every other touch phone..And at the end of the day its a symbian...Much better than the Windows based crappy system which needs to be reseted every now and then....Its loaded with features hell of a lot widgets...Beautiful design...Surprisingly light...The new firmware is also available...but touch wood i don't need it as mine is without any bugs as of now....Most of the naysayers point out at the disadvantages of this phone but what I can say is that every phone comes with its own pros and cons... It for u to decide with what all can u manage....
at First before buying this phoen take a look at Samsung Omnia HD i8910. IT is great and I got it last night. No comparison. If you looking for Nokia then can buy 5800 for less than half price. If is same phoen only adding Keyboard. You looking for good Nokia Phone key Board then just buy the E71.
Nokia put a Key board on 5800 and sell it so expensive. Just take a look i8910. you get a same review at Phone Areana compair Nokia N97 with Samsung Omnia HD.
I have a N97 for a month now. It is an interesting combination between an average Nokia (N series) phone and iPhone. The menu is unusual and is not easy to get use to. I did not figure out what is the use of the touch pen? Is very small, bad designed and practically impossible to use. You can only leave it in the phone box, otherwise you have big chance to loose it.

Hey M1das come back on and tell us how things are going with your n97.

Actually I am too much disturbed, thats the reason fo my mistakes.
After the initial joy, my N97 has left me devastated after just 3 days of use. My phone all of a sudden is giving too much of pain. Now it is virtually not usable. Whenever I start it, it takes too long to load the UI and identify the network. Then when you try to start Camera or Photos or Videos or Web Browser or File Manager or E mails it says " Memory Full". I have tried my best to make it running again. Retrieved the battery a couple of times, switched off an On the device a million times and deleted my messages, emails and uninstalled opera mini, gmail and google maps.
I have now put this phone back in the Box and will send it back.
I paid Indian Rupees 34,000 for this phone only to be among the first few to have it in my town (Srinagar, Kashmir) but to have it for just 2 days and wait for atleast 15 days to have a replacement or bug fixed Rs. 34,000 is too much. I could have bought this phone for only 30,000 after a month. Now I have been cheated. I still love Nokia and wont turn my coats on them. I hope Nokia will compensate me somehow. I have already bought different phones from Nokia for almost Rs. 3,00,000/- (USD 3,500) since 2004. I should get some benefit for that.

i bought the N97 three days ago... really worked well for 2 days and then suddenly touch display started panicking and phone started to freeze. i tried resetting phone but no luck. i think NOKIA need to get more deep into this matter. not only me couple of ma friends experienced the same.
lots of bugs need to be fixed.
Guys give some time and try buying the phone.
