I am sure the nokia 5140 ruggedised fone had a digital compass in it??
Watch this whole video. it's really wild.Read a newspaper with something that hangs around your neck that projects a video about what you're reading onto the newspaper. Near the end.

brynn, 11 Jun 2009In uk i was paying around 4 GBP a MB couple of years go so using internet on fone was a luxury... more3 years is rubbish, I used be on a month to month plan and buy outright handsets, I got nothing for it by signing up for 2 years I got a phone and pay less than I did before for more..
Now I'm paying $A20 for a GB of data, last year it was $A20 for 250MB and the year before that it was $A30 for 100MB.
There's not much wifi around here so data is essential if you want to use everything a modern phone can do.
Our PAYG rate is $A2 a MB

it says $604 on amazon.com, but if we are from Canada, can we just pay that amount converted to Canadian dollars.. and is shipping free?

Since the introduction of the iPhone to Australia our data costs have dropped dramatically which flows on to users of other phones.
Our PAYG system is slowly catching up but data is still relatively expensive.
I couldn't picture using any smartphone without data, it removes the best of the functionality.
O ya Micuzhi, where are you getting all the info about updates? can you share or it's a little secret lol.. thanks anyway, as long as we see the update news in here no problem.

Anonymous, 10 Jun 2009Iphone 3g 16 GB is 99 dollars NOT 899 and the 16GB 3GS is 199 Thats the pricing in the states for the iphone with 2 year AT&T contract. Take in considiration most people around the world don't buy phones with contract and they pay cash. so a full retail price in most places for the iphone is well over 700-800 USD. All in all N97 price is not bad at all if you think about it.
tash, 10 Jun 2009if you had your choice.... would any of you pick a nokia e71 over this nokia n97??? trying ... moreI own an e71 and am very very pleased with it. It performs extremely well, is super thin, has an excellent build quality and an astounding battery life. It's the best phone I've ever used. I'm actually a little conflicted because I'm getting a n97 as a gift and I feel a bit scared giving up the portability of the e71. I know you can't lose with the e71. In my opinion, hold off on the n97 until you hear good things about it to see if it's worth the green.
