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.
Raj, 11 Jun 2009can anybody tell n 86 8megapixel or this n97 or any good phn thn this . . . wht does the price... moreMeans that the phone is expensive or affordable,plase your mouse cursor on the money symbol and see the price!

if the Nokias were... morebecause the iphone is locked and the feature is less. that is why att carries it.
the n-series has a lot more to offer. again, nokia prefers the n-series to be unlock to have unlimited features. IT IS UP TO NOKIA TO HAVE ATT LAUNCH ANY N-SERIES. IT WILL BE GREAT A IDEA THOUGH for sales. att released one nokia e series....the e71x.
the feature is different (att feature) from the original e71. the e71x is locked and limited. therefore it is much cheaper. that is the first nokia smartphone to be release through att. i have thought of nokia and att, but i never thought it would happen. i bet you an n-series will probably be launch by att.
an unlock iphone will cost about the same as an n-series. an n-series is more worth than any unlock iphone.
again most of att smartphones suck. if i am to buy a smartphone through att, it will be the e71x because it has more features than the iphone.
my n95 and 5800 are awesome.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970due on o2 26th june. you cant get it directly from o2 as they dont want competition with the iphone but carphonewarehouse are offering it
Got the N97 from NYC flagship on the first day of release in US(9th June).
So didn't play around a lot but this is what I have so far.
The phone looks impressive with the sliding keypad.
The qwerty key pad is comfortable. If it is not, them it is just a matter of getting used to it.
No serious issues so far except for the battery life. Drains faster in UMTS mode.So I changed to GSM mode. Still drains faster. I am still observing the battery life based on my usage.
