WTF Nokia???? Your moving backwards...
We've had the N97 in the office for a few days now and it does not have 3D graphics hardware acceleration (no GPU, in other words). It still supports OpenGL ES, but only via software libraries (and with the higher resolution screen in the N97, there'll be three times as many pixels to move per frame, than on a QVGA display).
Both the 3GS and the i8910 both have gpu's and fully support open GL ES 2.0
Come on at least the N95 had a gpu...
No wonder Nokia are losing money...
TRY AND KEEP UP NOKIA!!!!!!!!!

"Audio duality deserves a High-Five
Just when we thought that they cannot get much better in this area and here come Apple to surprise us. The audio quality of the iPhone 3G was almost as good as it gets on a portable device and now with the iPhone 3GS it is simply perfect.
The iPod's bigger brother provides the best sonic experiences on the market with all of its readings simply remarkable."
See, I listen to music more than anything else and I want the best!
iPhone 3GS is as close to PERFECT as anything can be, the iPhone 3G is no longer the best.
it costs 31,500 without bluetooth handsfree 33,000(with bluetooth Handsfree)
and i used this cellphone n this cellphone is really sucks mates
hanging problem cam is great in daymode but in night mode it really sucks
touch is also hard
and i recommend n86 instead of n97

does anyone else seem to have any problems with their unlock switch on the left side? i just purchased mine a few days ago and already the unlocking switch is getting loose. is this normal or is it a defect?

Main disadvantages of iPhone 3GS (OS disadvantages not counted here):
* The new iPhone 3GS lacks the same novelty factor as its predecessors - the lack of design changes is a turn-down
* 3 megapixel camera with limited feature set hardly cuts it for a high-end device
* There's still no flash or hardware shutter key for the camera
* Despite the upgrade, battery life is still generally poor (2-year old iPhone 2G are still doing way better)
* No stereo speakers (or are we pushing it too far already?)
i cant accept what the iphone3gs lacks!!! but can accept what the n97 lacks.
the lack of n97 is just the software improvement,..
Anonymous, 30 Jun 2009Nokia implementing multitouch in the firmware update eh ?
According to the US Patent Office... moreApple may have a patient but Microsoft are also using this technology in the next release of windows so I don't think Nokia have anything to worry about.
And to the poster laughing abount Nokia already having to release a FW update. News today 3.1 available in Beta for iPhone - that didn't take long :-)
about Nokia N97 firmware update :
i like N97, but i cant afford the price, hehe, just seeing its pix, and feeling happy
I got my N97 2 days before, To day i installed aplications S 60 3rd adition & all are working well. only smart movie not working.
Hmm pretty good, Might go with the HTC Hero, only 2 things I don't like about this phone:
1. Has a RESISTIVE TS
2. The processor could be knocked up to a 528 Mhz Qualcomm
Nokia implementing multitouch in the firmware update eh ?
According to the US Patent Office Apple was awarded patent number 7,479,949 on January 20, 2009. The patent which was filed on April 11, 2008 covers multi-touch and all associated gestures such as pinch, swipe and rotation.
The patent is titled:
Touch screen device, method, and graphical user interface for determining commands by applying heuristics
The initial patent abstract is as follows:
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.
Good luck Nokia !
Better stick to the spying business .
