If you are using a big touchscreen interface phone of nokia, SE htc, or samsung right now, be thankful to apple. none of them will exist if iphone never existed.
every once in a while there should be a revolutionary product that comes and changes everything.
some1 pls help!!
i have been using my N97 for almost 1 week and so far im quite satisfied with the fone but 1 thing which i didnt like is the responsiveness of my phone, when i tried to play my video from my mass memory which was abt 358mb in size i've encountered lagness. The sound effect came first then the screen, i cant even watch the movie at all. So i tried to upload an animation clips, everything was alrite perhaps it's becos of the size. so can any1 explain y tis is happening or maybe is becos of the RAM and how can i rectify the prob. tks!
This is just to inform you that I have finally gotten a phone that out performs the SE P1. I took delivery of the Nokia N97 and was very impressed with its functionality and user friendly interface. I am a Sonyericsson diehard but after returning my Xperia after a couple of days of use I went back and bought another P1. I was going to wait for the Satio (Idou) but I am quite pleased with the N97. There is no comparison with the iphone, the iphone is just a toy.

The touch screen is so difficult to use compared to the Iphone, Nokia cannot use the gestures of the MAC OS therefore it is so clumbersome to navigate, stick to little mid range phones Nokia, do not try to compete in an area you do not have any know how.
I just got it after listening to a friend, this is pure junk, the interface is impossible, I am going back to the Iphone
Very slow with horrible interface, maybe in ten years they will catch up to Iphone if and when they will develop a proper user interface and navigation software
keep on trying Nokia
i am the proud owner of my N97. Its just 2 days since I got it, thanks to Nokia Priority Dealer in my town who called me up to tell that only 3 sets have arrived and I grabbed the one. Well, what to tell about it.
Its just awesome. everything works fine. A few improvements and it will make Iphone a history.
Dual Touch, Louder Speakers,and a Scroll Wheel on the longer side near the volume buttons will make it a perfect device.
What is the difference between the "Nokia N97 32GB Multimedia Smartphone White Unlocked US Version" and "Nokia N97 Multimedia Smartphone White Unlocked Import Mobile Phone"? I don't see the different features of the two versions, but the non-US version is more expensive.
Sometimes when i unlock the phone, the backlight doesn't come on. The screen is working, but there is no backlight.
I need to lock and unlock again and the backlight will be on again.
Anyone else experiencing this?
Many Nokia 5800xm owners are wondering if the N97 is worth the upgrade. The price difference between both devices is about $300 depending on where you buy. For instance Amazon.com has the 5800 for $289.99 right now while the N97 is going for $654. Below I will briefly talk about some of the main differences between both devices.
Touch Sensitivity & Responsiveness
If you’ve ever owned the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic or played around with one you’d know that the touch sensitivity is not very good. I currently own both devices and the touch experience is like night and day. The N97 is closer to the iPhone sensitivity, a lot more responsive and smooth. This for me was extremely surprising, I didn’t expect the N97 to be that sensitive. Even some iPhone buddies are jealous, saying their device is TOO sensitive, but the N97 was just perfect.
The N97 has a lens protector for the camera.

The Web Browser
The Nokia N97 has kinetic scrolling in the browser just like the iPhone. I really wish the entire interface was like this, rumor has it that it might be coming soon to the Contacts list. The Nokia 5800 does not have kinetic scrolling in the browser which is a huge bummer. The browser of the N97 is also much faster and more usable. When a web page is loading the N97 browser automatically switches to fullscreen while the 5800 keeps the navigation bars on the side. You must manually put it in fullscreen mode. It’s up to Nokia if they want to add this in a firmware update.
Both devices run on Symbian S60 v5 and are much alike. The homescreen is much different, the N97 having the option of homescreen widgets or blank, while the 5800 allows you to have favorite contacts communications on the homescreen, blank, or four shortcuts. I would give the N97 the advantage because it’s so customizable. Just check out the N97 homescreen widgets page here at the blog to see what you can do. Besides the homescreen just about all other aspects of the user interface are exactly the same.

what you saw is a prototype video\
I have seen a demonstration of the N97 on youtube (link below)and it showed there was an onscreen full qwerty keyboard in landscape mode. Reviews I have read since the phone was released said there isnt.
Could owners of the N97 please clear this up for me
can anyone answer me?
i found it annoying that why would i need to select the access point for wifi everytime i use internet, can i set it to automatically choosen? can i make web browser auto-fill password& name? just like the new iphoneOS3.0 does.
suggestion foe nokia
making the widgets resizable and flick scroll within the widget, more pages of widgets, more official themes preinstalled, kinetic scroll replace scroll bar in menu and list and icon menu, let me flick scroll wwhile the web browwser is still loading!
ipod interface like music player.
just get some good idea from ipod music player and safari mobile
