Idou is more like a business phone, succesor to the X1, while N97 is more like a multimedia phone, succesor to the N95.
It does look rather lovely, and the specs are amazing, but I do wonder if it will be as good as it says. I love it in white, but my dad is buying for himself in black. The sliding action, touch screen and QWERTY keyboard will be amazing (im guessing)and it will be easy to use with a beautiful screen. I would say that it will be in competition with the Sony Ericson Idou, Sony Ericssons first symbian powered smartphone, but they will appeal to slightly different markets, N97, for business users needing to edit documents and emails, and the idou for the youth who like to take pictures and listen to music. (subsequently, I shall be getting the Idou).
it's the ultimate phone dude !! its like the harddisk of phones with full media !! its very amazing !!!!!!! i like it !
N97 has loud speaker cooolllll
I concern about the web browsing speed!!!!! The default browser should be upgrqded to run rapidly As mobile safari
Sad that there is still no fifth versin of ozone, mobile opera and skyfire and mobile firefox!!!!
What are you doing ? Web browser developers??????????????????????????

i only have the volume to -1 from the max volume and it's still blasts with clearity
i'm just getting some money up so i can get it even louder with the 5800 lol
All the N97 fanatics,please be aware there are loads of fake /copies of the N97 about from the Chinese Traders,so please check out thoughrally the phone you purchase on some websites,as you do not want to end up wasteing alot of money on a mobile that does not function same as the Original N97
There's still a slim chance that N97 will have a dual-core CPU... Even if it won't have it, it'll still be the best Internet-browsing device that can be used as a phone.
N97 = mobile computer
Omnia HD = smartphone
X1 = smartphone
G1 = smartphone
TG01 = lacks multimedia features, yet unknown
Iphone = lacks multimedia features, smartphone
Idou = smartphone
Touch HD = smartphone
The N97 is the only replacement of a laptop!!!
How much do you think it would sell on the first week, if it would be released at the same date worldwide (which it won't)?
anonymous, 13 Apr 2009The N97 will be priced around or above 1,000 USD/CAD when it's released.
Anyone who is a mu... morelol since when is the Iphone cheaper than the N97???
N97 costs 5999 SEK in Sweden, while the gimped Iphone 8GB (only 8GB memory, no flash cards or anything!!!) costs 7999 SEK... As for the Iphone 16GB, you can guess it yourself...
BTW, those prices may vary in different stores. Those ones above are from the same store.
Mizuchi u fogot +nokia 5800 coz nokia n97 has better sound quality in earphones and the same from loudspeakers as nokia 5800
The Specs in GSMArena is not updated for N97. . . There are so many things that is totally different and amazing when you get this phone. . . So better watch out guys, you will never regret if you spend some money to this amazing phone. . . N97 RULES!!!!

With touchscreen fones the whole front is screen so they can not do much with design except on the back,,it is therefore imperative that the eye candy is superb..In v21 the album art has doubled in size but visuals are limited and thats because it slows down fone..
n97 + flick scroll (replace all the scrollbar which looks ugly in touch screen phone)
n97 without keyboard is welcome
n97 with at least 600mhz and 192ram
n97 with capacitive touch
nokia please release more touch screen phones like the above
