I went to N97 launch in my country yesterday. and for the first time I got to touch it :). The colour.. if you really see it yourself and not just the picture.. I think the white one has brighter appearance, while black looks bit dull. The touch screen is under par. quite good, it's also responsive the moment I touched it. Just in one instance when I was trying to log in to face book, and I tapped the email address section, it didn't respond. After couple of times I asked the nice girl who standby next to me. She closed the qwery keyboard, started from the beginning and it worked this time. But funny thing is I could not find _ (underscore) in the qwerty keyboard.. Does anyone know how?? I have to find it on virtual keyboard (I thought virtual keyboard was QWERTY but no.. it's just like ordinary keypad. if you want 'c' letter then you must tap 3 times yeah..). And when I went to web browser and tried to scroll the page with my hand, it didn't move at first. Then I remember that N97 is resistive so I put little more pressure with my finger and it scrolled smoothly.. The build design is nice and slim (not as bulky as I thought), and also fits perfectly on average palm size. I give "8" for overall features. the price in my country is Rp. 7,990,000 (Usd 775), on launching day you got Usd 50 discount with credit card and 6 month payment with 0% interest. Oh.. I forgot to tell.. one more thing about qwerty keyboard, it's not that easy to use.. Looks big and spacious in picture but if you type it yourself it's a different story. Not that bad, and maybe given time you'll get used to it. But it could do better with 4 rows. Anyway, Ialso heard the news about N97 mini, but no luck yet to know the specs. Cheers guys..

I already own the white one.. It's nice.. Very nice actually..
IMO it's really the iphone killer.. bigger gigs, much bigger cams, real keyboard, and pretty fast (compared to iphone)..
The other thing is, its symbian 60 look alike iphone interface..
4 thumbs up.. really..
That picture there was taken at niagara falls by a stranger with my n95.

I pity you though going back to your iphone3g.
Sorry click on view customers reviews first then number 3 and click on.
Number 3 in the link. Good for one time emergencys only. Then click on for that review.
Even worse then i thought my friends. This is a users review who uses the same charger for his iphone 3g.
"I drained my iphone down to 10% warning and plugged in a fully charger kensington battery. It took about70 minutes until the chargers juice was gone and it powered my iphone to about 50%."
I mean what a joke not even to full battery power.
If you are using the iphone3g at the same time as the kensington is plugged in you're not GAINING.

...meanwhile my iPhone is almost fully charged again and will last longer than it takes to charge the spare.
I could use the phone 24/7 if I really wanted to without any interuption and without plugging it into a charger.
