in my opinion it is very very similar to 5800 ( do a comparison ) i have owned a 5800 and returned it after one week with that said my previous phones were n95,n96, n85, n78, all new phones coming out have EXTREMELY cheap build quality, made in china 4 the u.s, if you are very particular about your phones and must have a nokia i highly recommend the E series

Buy the phone you like and can afford. If you don't like the N97, move on with your life - there will be many other phones to pick from soon enough.
All I say is look at the sales. In the end it does'nt mean sweet blue bugger-all what anyone says on sone anonymous online forum/comment area. In the end only one thing speaks true and that is the sales figures. So do yourself and us all a favour and find something new to fill your day.
Anonymous, 07 Jun 2009release date. june 15th. Thats not ages away. Hello mike from another ip address.man I'm having so much fun! I'm not Hassan; look at the country code and you will see! but i guess it's too hard for you! I saw that you fanboys still didn't answered to my question: why should i buy the n97? It's a simple question, and the answers should be simple too if the n97 really had something to show! This brick will use the same implementation of the symbian software as in the nokia 5800 xpress music (another waste of time!) I invite you all to read the review that the guys here at GSM Arena made on the 5800, and see how bad Nokia implemented the touch UI for symbian! It's a mess! And when I'm thinking that the same garbage will be used in the n97..oh man:)) The symbian s60 is great, but Nokia ruins it!

Mike, this is true, Im not a fan of the 3 row QWERTY keyboard and it does look horrendous. Also, the date in which it's going to be released some ages away...TBH, no match for my phone the HTC TP2
it is releasing in india on 23rd june its too late it.i don't understand y they r releasing so late don't they want to sell it frequently
but im not surious about n97.where are you from(Anonymous).chines or japanes?
nokia always plays dis fame game...

Hi i am curious about the N97 for a specific reason. my question is that is the n 97 sold in qatar come from finland or china? due to the fact that nokia only comes from china thank you.
cc, 07 Jun 2009The hardware seemm enough But the firmware sound bad Still using scrollbar? No multitouch... moreN97 has kinetic (flick) scroll for browser. Not sure it it is supported in all apps/menus.
The hardware seemm enough
But the firmware sound bad
Still using scrollbar?
No multitouch software
Resistive is not bad but it is hard to use sometime!
Can nokia use flick scroll for menu and list? Or give us some options to choose which one we like to use in n97?
Anonymous, 07 Jun 2009Little crappy phones for sure NOT in the smartphone marketNokia still the market leader of smartphones. 37%. Ihttp://www.financialpost.com/news-sectors/technology/story.html?id=1614378'm sure with the n97 fast approaching people will consider it over the iphone3g.
Yes the link talks about competition from Rim and apple, but they are not the leader yet. The n97 will help nokia smartphone sales increase.
