Look at any other thin phone.. most of them will have user-replaceable batteries
cocacola aka rafe., 03 Jun 2009THIS IS OFFICIAL. For you guys who stayed in Indonesia, N97 will be realeased on June 20th. Pl... moreSo it is OFFICIAL, way too complicated and EXPENSIVE good products are simple and deliver GOOD practical use : IPHONE !!
THIS IS OFFICIAL. For you guys who stayed in Indonesia, N97 will be realeased on June 20th. Place: Plaza Senayan - 6 pm onward. And the most important aspect: THE PRICE. Rp. 7,990,000 (USD 775). WHY IS IT SO EXPENSIVE NOKIA??? Some people even said they wouldn't buy it for Usd 700, CHEW THIS MY FRIEND..! USD 775!! That's just ridiculous. I don't know the CPU and RAM specs wise.. are they still 434mhz and 128mb RAM? if so that's even more ridiculous. But all above info i got from my cousin working in Nokia. It's 100% VALID. I've been waiting for the phone for months and looks like I just have to back little longer..

Anonymous, 03 Jun 2009And yeah, why are people saying that this phone is better than the iPhone. I bet it's because ... moreI must have had at least 30 phones in my life before the Iphone, NEVER had a need to replace a battery, so built in battery in the Iphone is MUCH better and the phone is a LOT thinner
And yeah, why are people saying that this phone is better than the iPhone. I bet it's because you're going to own this phone soon, so you want to pre-justify this phone. Iphone is good in its ways. But like the other post mentioned, it's about user friendliness. The N97 is about the spec list. If Iphone improves on the following I definitely want one:
- replaceable battery
- no need for iTune
- much better camera
Before that happens, spec-wise, N97 is superior for my taste of course. But I still don't understand why people are saying this is the best phone even when SE IDOU and I8910 are right in front of them. I am not saying which one is better, but when you compare the specs, N97 is indeed somewhat out of date.
But being a Nokia fanboy, I still say, I wish you can listen to your customer, and I'll still be the fanboy. But to the other people I say, be objective.
I am just here to vent. Non-Nokia fanboys, if you love your phone, you don't need to come here and rebuke other phones. Just like the Nokia's own N95 fanboys, after ages, you still claim that N95 is the best phone out there (i.e. the screen is 0.1" bigger??!!). A lot of you just can't accept the idea that there exists a better phone than your own, so you have to find some way to justify that yours is the best.
What I am most sick of is a lot of people here read a blog post somewhere (i.e. regarding wide-angle lens, etc), simply re-post what was posted as if it's his own, without knowing fully what he/she is talking about. But one thing is true, Xenon is better than whatever LED there is. I have N82 and N85, the difference is huge. People who want to have a certain phone (i.e. N86 or N97), simply wants to justify before they get their hands on it that the LED flash is greater. But once they have the phone, they probably will still lie to themselves that LED is better. I find this pretty sick.
But yeah, Nokia knows (I deeply believe) what customers want, but they simply take a little bit of this and that away from us (i.e. ancient processor, resistive touch screen, etc). Nokia thinks they're still in the position to do this (by market share yes, but not for long if they keep doing it). Samsung on the other hand, tries to give the customers exactly what we want (i.e. HD, new CPU, capacitive touch screen, large screen, etc. etc), which is good. I wish Nokia can start learning from Samsung.
Nevertheless, we shouldn't complain a certain phone in some ways:
CPU: if the software limits the performance, there's no reason to throw money in this one.
Touch/Non-touch: It is definitely a personal choice. Touch isn't necessarily better. But having the option is always good. I still like the old style big buttons such that I can be sure what I'm typing.
Software (S60V3/V5): While V5 is newer, we all know that V3 has much better compatibility, at least for now. It is always good to have the latest. But having a smart phone, I want to be able to run lots of cool programs. It would be pointless if there were not a lot.
Form factor: dual/slide, candybar, etc, remember when the N95 fanboys boasted their dual slide and said that it's the only way to go? Months later, they all talked about mechanical parts all degrade eventually.
Delete my post if this post seems pointless, just had a bad morning and needed to vent.
OMG...omnia HD and SE satio got the better CPU, its ARM Cortex-A8 600 MHz processor; 3D Graphics HW Accelerator.....
ohh nokia your slowing nowadays and making many business phone, do you want children to do business also....
Anonymous, 03 Jun 2009stop this 'n97 is better than iphon'crap
these two phones shoud'nt be compered becous iphone... morewell N97 finally released,
wait for 8june WWDC and september 2-3 nokia world 2009

if nokia announces phone better than n97 or capacitve 5800i or touch eseries, i go for nokia
stop this 'n97 is better than iphon'crap
these two phones shoud'nt be compered becous iphone is working more on beeing user friendly and n97 is working on a longer spec sheet so if you want a fast user friendly phone with a normal camra for capturing some momments go for iphone if you want a phone with a long spec sheet that can do anything(geeks)go for n97

WE are getting loads of reviews about every other type of phones instead of Nokia nowdays on gsmarena to help buyers out,now the N97 is nearly close to be released in the u.k hope some review will become available i am sure,seeing if this phone will live up to all its speculation,Nokia please stop announcing mobiles to early,as it becomes very annoying waiting for it,an other produces see it an release a much better mobile trying you to keep away from the Nokia mobile,they never seem to learn from there big mistakes at Nokia
