They were not all 2 meg. I said nothing that 3.2 is so much better then 2 meg, but they all probably have auto focus unlike the crummy iphone cam with no af.

Enjoy your 3€ wallpaper from the Ovi store or 20€ for mobile wifi, didn't anyone tell them about the free version? Jaiku I think it's called.

...warning large download 7.6 MB for the Star Trek Game, Myst for iPhone is one hundred times that size!
Mobile hotspot 20€, I can see lots of people buying that one, given the free alternatives.

Whether it was nokia,,lg,,samsung,,toshiba,,htc,,sharp,,moto,,if a mobile was released by any other firm like the i-phone it would be laughed at BUT because it apple it fantastic now thats sheep for you..The above statements are wholly true because its apple they buy it even if it was wind up with 1 inch monochrome screen and 416kb max memory..
hey guys..can anybody tell me about n 97 screen..coz i used 5800..n dat was realy a bad experience..u have to push hard twice to open something..if n 97 is giving a touchscreen like iphone..den i ll go for it...thx..
Nokia's Ovi store makes soft landing in a few markets, might be headed to your neck of the woods soon.

How come Omnia HD, and other phones with significantly better screen than Iphone, also use the capasitive technology?
Good luck enjoying that screen without a decent resolution or AMOLED, because u'll need it!
N97 pwns it cuz res + QWERTY-pad
Omnia HD pwns it cuz res + AMOLED
With such small resolution, how can you both have a virtual QWERTY-pad and other content on the screen at the same time? Oh wait, I forgot multi-tasking wasn't allowed on the Iphone!
Sorry dude, but you can't compare the Iphone in terms of tech with other phones, and still believe that it's superior. The only way it's better, is that u'll have to burn more money on it, so ur money won't be wasted on other stuff.
With all the $$$ Apple earned from the significantly overpriced Ipod's/Iphone's, they should at least sell the hardware at non-existing profit, if not a small loss, since they'll get it back with their software restrictions anyway. Yet they price it $300 more than it actually costs to produce, ship and sell all combined. And people still buy it! Amazing, really!
Anonymous, 25 May 2009this does not beat any HTC or iphone3G. maybe the iphone 2G.LOL
this is an underpowered phone... morelol do u know what u say???
Iphone 2G and Iphone 3G both have the same CPU.
And yes, N97 beats them both.

this is an underpowered phone. cpu speed and graphic accelerator is important because technology is going there.the mobile world is going there, and if your phone lacks that then you will be outcast, outplayed and outperformed by upcoming phones.
how can a 5mp camera, 32gb memory with full qwerty keyboard be enough to beat other powered phones?! because you can do more with a faster and powered phone.
is the slide in N97 is worthful or not?
bcoz N97 have different slide angle
anyone can give me the solution

Glass screen is due to the capacitive touch screen. graphics and fast processor are unnecessary and would consume more power so nokia intended to use these components, because not everyone wants to play games and would prefer longer battery life.

Not everyone is really interested in the camera quality on mobile phones btw. We got far more superior applications and great support from many many developers and that is what makes the iPhone worth the price. Plus if you compare apps or games of the iphone to the ones on nokia, you will realise that for every games on the iphone that sells for 0.99dollars nokia sells them for 10-20dollars and on top of this the games on the iphone are like 5x times better. you dont believe me? read the reviews and pay a visit to youtube.

Beats having to drag around the generator to charge the iPhone. Not a toy this N97, but the culmination of serious tech for robust dependable usage. i'd say this device could outlive any HTC and has already out engineered the iPhone. Well done Nokia!

In my opinion that is a very important feature that is why alot of people struggle so much in trying different methods to protect their phones. The UI of the Apple iPhone OS is still unmatched in my opinion, it has multi touch capabilities which is awsome combined with applications and games and plus the screen is made from glass which gives it a beautiful display and much more resistance to scracthes. The graphics capabilities and the processor itself is way better than the old Arm11 in the N97.

And the music volume through earpiece is loud!
And the beatiful icons in their os like the folder, interface etc,,,
