Both in the ATT and TMobile web sites being the only GSM carriers in the States there is no
offering for the N97 why ????
Because is a useless piece of hardware too complicated and not practical, the Iphone 3GS WILL
outperform N97 BY FAR FAR FAR.
The overall offering with unbelievable user interface App store, Music store is what people want and like, NOT a list of useless specs.
I have an unlocked Iphone and when I come to the States I pay A LOT in air and data charges both with an AT&T and TMOBILE numbers.
If you live steadily in a country still the best bet is to buy a minutes/data plan along with a GOOD phone like the Iphone.
The Iphone 3GS has a fantastic pricing and excellent performance package, at this price of $ 199 they will sell a lot, not unlike the nokia crap smartphones that cost an arm and a leg and the networks do not want to support.
i've been working for mobile shops for years, people would Buy anything to be Honest some people are stupid they seem to put huge prices on these mobiles and yet it ain't worth the Money people can be taken for MUgs
Anonymous, 09 Jun 2009Waited for what?for the announce of the new Iphone
Anonymous, 09 Jun 2009except u can buy an iphone for 1/3 of the price of the nokia, it wont depreciate as fast ... morelol that is on contract. N97 is free on concract, depending on which carrier you choose. Iphone, on the other side, is locked to one carrier, and way overpriced. Just look at the unlocked prices... therefore, since N97 is both better in price and features, the winner is obvious.
Anonymous, 09 Jun 2009Waited for what?The announcement of Iphone 3GS boosted N97's popularity big time, as Iphone 3GS was mainly seen as a huge disappointment.
idecarv, 09 Jun 2009Nokia waited for the announce of the new Iphone.Waited for what?
just 128 mb ram and 434 mhz cpu.shame on nokia.they cant even compared to xperia.they announced it last year releasing it this month,it is still worse.
and they have announced n87 and still no words.n97 is another dump phone from nokia.thats all
hussam, 09 Jun 2009Just bought it today cons are 1- hungs allot 2- speaker sound sucks that is all for nowNooo, thats not what i wanted to hear :(
Just bought it today
1- hungs allot
2- speaker sound sucks
that is all for now
The Nokia N97 is now available at Nokia Flagship stores in Chicago and New York
u can have 7.2mbps or wishing for 14.4mbps... But what is ur telco's speed offer? Do u think it's really give that speed? Do anybody did a internet speed test of ur phone? Did it transmit the data at rate of 7.2mbps? What for having so huge mbps if ur telco is limited? It's like having a 2 lanes bridge but thousands of cars using it at same time.... Have u heard 'a bottle neck network' or 'lagging'? Ask ur telco to upgrade more internet speed... Then it will fully utilised ur 7.2mbps
one of the worst phone in my life...........Don't forget you are investing 39 k for this phone...
Ooooh! Are u calling ya iphone a Smartphone??? Are u joking???
- No multitasking
- No Flash in web
- No bluetooth share
- No Java
- and what i've missed???
*Never* compare this *TOY* with Nokia N97! The cpu speed is not a pbm if the OS run sligtly with all programs.
I dont know why someone says that iPhone is a smartphone. Symbian, Android, Windows Mobile, Web OS, Linux Mobile, are all multitask. Only this sh**t Mac OS X Mobile from Apple is non multitask, and u call the iPhone 3Gs a concurrent of N97! Lool let me laugh. All that've impressionate me on iPhone is his interface andt his browser Safari. Without that... i prefer let my son play with it! Loool Nokia win again...
Anonymous, 09 Jun 2009Three iPhones models looks the same!
N97 totally different dsesign compare to n96
New iPh... morehow will anyone be able to play by stylus based games on a capasitive touchscreen
damn it nokia
P%nm, 09 Jun 2009Does this old fashioned, slow piece of junk have touch to focus on it's camera?
Nokia shoul... morebut Nokia didn't go down as you foretold, it has stood ground defeating its competitors in the brewing war of hype vs omnia hd and now with the new gen iphone which didn't came as good as it was expected leaving a lot of dismayed apple fanboys aground.
now whose next in line to drown? nokia will be releasing announcing a flagship touch device with gestural interface, an entry level touched, a midrange touched, an e series touched and an internet tablet by september, all up against its competitors.
who do you think will emerge victorious? you guess it right, Nokia c",
one week has past and I still see some iphone vs. n97
the thing is THESE TWO PHONES SHOULD NOT BE COMPARED
iphone is all about UI and n97 is spec sheet
these two aspects are realy importent and since iphone has the UI it should be compared with something like a LG phone(s-clas UI)and n97 shold be compared with something like omnia HD
please everyone stop this 'iphone is crap' or 'n97 is better so that people can actioly find some useful opinions about n97
thats all I have to say but remember you are only making a fool out of yourself by compering phone(not just these two phones)
