M1DAS, 12 Jun 2009i just want to clarify a quick point to those saying the n97 is slow only because it has a ARM... moreThanks for the spark lol but as well as everyone was stating that the n97 is slow i also brought up a good point that if the iphone 3g and n97 use the same cpu the ARM 11 and both use 128mb of ram how and how the symbian is optimized for mobile use only how would it be slow at all lol the n97 is techically faster then the iphone which they were competing against and then the 3gS popped out of no were with little spec improvements
posting this from the n97. Phone is not slow at all! Still playing around with it, like a kid at Christmas!
Average with no good feature but the battery is damn good i can surf thd web for more time than i used to do in n95 . I advise you not to buy this phone better go for S E idou B¤J
hello everybody... i bought this phone today, it cost 1400 USD in my country... very expensive, isnt it? ... well the phone is awesome! ITS NOT SLOW! its fast, the perfect phone
i just want to clarify a quick point to those saying the n97 is slow only because it has a ARM11 434MHz cpu and 128mb ram. have you not thought that maybe it uses a lot less ram than it actually has therefore would still function really quick? Mizuchi made a point saying that they will probably release an update for it over FOTA (Firmware Over The Air). i remember one of the first n95 firmware updates i ever done reduces ram usage and sped my phone up.
ANYWAY with that said I'll be going in to the Nokia retail store on Regent Street (London) tomorrow and testing it out myself. then im gonna buy it when its officially on sale in the uk on the 19th!
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970how about document editing? Connecting to wireless keyboard? Why should waste dollar and cent? If it just can take out the memory card and transfer it via memory card reader? Have u send any of ur phone for repair? What if inside ur phone had a classified data? That's why we need the memory card slot. Just take it out and keep in ur wallet. As simple as that. Are you sure the iphone is made for business purposes? Sure enough? I think u still didn't answer how to change the battery yet because at least i have a spare in case i didn't bring along the charger on site visiting. How did u do a video conference using iphone? Dude... The other thing u need to know is... I like it i used it. I don't like it, i give it to others. For certain level in my company, they give us a handphone allowance. Just buy what even phone we want. Why can't i give it to my staff for free? It is because of the price? Or it's the most sophisticated phone on earth? I have using hp ipaq, xda, palm, nokia, sony ericsson, motorola and plus iphone. If u are talking about the touch technology, i already used it since 2001. Some of them a broken and some of them i just give it to other because i want to buy a new one.
looks awesome.specifications are quite good particularly memory internal and expandable:
Allan, 12 Jun 2009I liked omnia HD in the beginning but not anymore. Have samsung fixed the horrible audio. No H... moreI really don't know what other features people are looking for in a phone the n97 is feature packed you can careless about the 5mp camera cause you have the 95 but all that social connectivity at your finger tips and touch at the same time this is a beast and plus the growing ovistore and the developers taking their time to make detestating apps.widgets.games and themes these people that actually use nokia's devices would only know what's to really come in the near future
i think Nokia first announced that the N97 will be WinMo OS, didn't it?
Fat Elvis, 12 Jun 2009This doesn't even begin to compare to the Samsung i8910HD Omnia HD. What are they thinking?... moreI liked omnia HD in the beginning but not anymore. Have samsung fixed the horrible audio. No HDMI output and gsm arena review says the battery can come out easily.
This doesn't even begin to compare to the Samsung i8910HD Omnia HD.
What are they thinking?!
More to the point, why are you lot thinking of getting an out of date phone?!
And i thought Nokia were a top company....
Shame as they were for years but if this is all they can muster as their flagship phone then they're on a slow downward spiral. This is out of date spec-wise 6 months before it's release!!!!
Looks like the middle eastern manufacturers are showing everybody what to make before they think of it!
P.s. i am not an iPhone fanboi!!! They're even worse!!!
I have an n79 right now, how good is the speaker on the n97 compared to my phone? thanks
The US version is available. It's in store now but only the black one. Can't wait!
therock, 11 Jun 2009because the iphone is locked and the feature is less. that is why att carries it.
the n-... moreAt least Apple has the balls to tell phone networks where to go with their custom firmware and printing phone company names names on the case.
Why don't they make a CDMA version, cripple the wifi and launch on Verizon?
Anonymous, 11 Jun 2009Have a look at ATT financials, they are printing billions with the Iphone, if the Nokias were... moreatt have used nokia phones in the past before the iphone was created. now nokias are back with the release of the e71.
