N97 isn't the best on any specific areas, but it doesn't lack ANY functions, while Omnia HD does, and all other phones as well. N97 has EVERYTHING, maybe not in top-class, but it's still everything...
Therefore N97 is the best all-in-one device, simply because it has everything. Obviously N97's camera isn't the best, nor the screen, but there's no phone on the market that has a better combo of functions than the N97, especially for the relatively low price (considering the specs).
As for the Apple fanboys, please start working instead of trolling here. Really, you'll NEED the money...
Anonymous, 20 May 2009this phone has full keyboard, so to those who dont use full touch since they text so much, the... moreHTC touch pro and xperia are the first to have a high end phone touch screen full qwerty keyboard not this antique. and you said iphone didnt sell to business men? well 18 million people have it, and in most countries, you cannot buy an iphone if you dont have a credit card. so you think kids have credit cards?? haha LOL!.. business men have!LOL
another thing, this n97 is good if its out last year.
this phone is just an ordinary phone today. all mobile companies will be releasing their second versions of their best phones this year.. the blackberry storm 2, the xperia 2, HTC touch pro2, samsung omnia 2 HD, and possibly the third iphone from apple. so what about your nokia??? their first one still isnt out, and by the time its out other competitors are already out with better specs than n97. so you see nokia just follow the leaders. they are 1 year late to the real best companies. because nokia is all about midrange phones. they are the best in midrange! but far being the best in smartphones.
you've waited and spend much for this phone just to get beaten by other phones this year!!LOL poor nokia fans.

But wat i meant was this phone has a little bit of everything. Theere's nothing that it truely lacks. It can get the job done from every aspect. Of course it could be improved, but then the price could go up too. For wat it has, it will certtaily be nice.

But the focus on N97 is far away from perfection, but firmware updates might change that.

Nokia has a reputation for putting OUTSTANDINGGG cameras in their phones. When comparing nokia's 5 mp camera (in say the n82 or even n95) to se's, lg's or samsung's 5 mp camera's, nokia makes them look like litttle chinese toys. This phone is going to be amaazing. White with mirror chrome higlights... that's perfection.
Midas, 20 May 2009HSDPA 7.2mb/s for the full spec but i'm not keeping my fingers crossed on that they didn't say... more32 GB support was unofficially comfirmed long time ago, but Nokia's site still say "max 16 GB". Are you 100 % sure it won't support 10.2 mbps HSDPA, or are you just saying that it will AT LEAST support 7.2 mbps. Because there are other Nokia phones that support 10.2 mbps, so why wouldn't their flagship model do it?
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Not even this phone will last 11 years, but I guess this will be one of the phones with the longest longevity, beacuse this is Nokia's flagship model for 2009, and Nokia always supports Nphones, even the 2 year old ones.
For example, look at the great firmware support N95 got, and still gets. I'm sure N97 can last up to 5 years, but it will be outdated by then, and I really mean outdated big time.

Big deal? I think if you had an omnia n i had an n97 we should race 2c who could write a txt message or email faster. Wanna bet that i'll win?

So don't say poor little n97, becuase the n97 is definately number 1 to those who use texting. and in case you don't remember, iphone didn't sell in the corporate and business niche BECAUSE it didnt have a keyboard. so think about wat you say before you say it. Nokia's target is different than samsung's and sony's.

32GB is the limit of the file system used in SD cards they won't get bigger without major changes.

Meanwhile Apple won't care, they'll just keep loading phones with the best phone software ever made and people will keep buying it for that alone.
