Nokia is just using their old cpu to save money! The first N95 was made in 2006, 3 years later they use the same ARM 11 processor...come on, there's a big problem!
Everytime i open the media key in my black N82, it take 10 sec to open, not normal!
Mizuchi, 08 May 2009No one except Nokia knows what ARM 11 CPU their using in the N97 just like intel and AMD High... moreI just want to have a very fast phone, i tried the blackberry bold and it was so fast! Can you say that Nokia phone are slow?
I'm not the only one saying that Nokia have nice features but has very slow interface!

Anonymous, 08 May 2009ARM 11 434 MHz processor! ahahahahhaahhahahahah SO Slow! OMG Nokia is going down! Samsung w... moreIt's a different version of symbian and they obviously know how fast it need to be for the touch screen and everything else if you noticed why the Omnia HD is fast cause is has more uselesss stuff running like the3D transitions the N97 only have Accelormeter based transitions and their apps on the symbian that are really small plus they modded the OS as well to work well with the CPU speed just like the 5800
I'm tired to see the waiting bar every time i open something with a Nokia! They lost control!
Market share in 4 years:
Mizuchi, 08 May 2009Wow your a CPU noob cause if XP can run at 1Ghz the with 2gb of RAM fine why would you increse... moreI'm just saying that for $50 less than the N97 you can have the Samsung Omnia HD with a CPU 3 times faster(ARM Cortex-A8 600 MHz processor; 3D Graphics HW Accelerator) than the one inside N97!

Leeroy, 08 May 2009Well to all nokia fans ... Lets look at that phone and smile at how nokia is WAY AHEAD of comp... moreI'm saulting too bro :D i thank them as well they did me and the world too good
Well to all nokia fans ... Lets look at that phone and smile at how nokia is WAY AHEAD of competition, people wanted a change, innovation, and they got it for sure, as for nseries the numbers are closing up aswel as eseries, i think nokia will produce somethin like n40 and e20 or whatever but as for 50's 60's 70's 80's and 90's we've seen some great phones like e65, e71 , e66, e52, n73 , n79 , n80 , n82 , n90 , n95 and upcoming n97, the number are closing up so i think nokia will be closing them up with a BANG!! Startin with n97... Its been a great run and brings a tear to ones eye but i really look forward to seeing what nokia will do next as replacement for there two great series range, to the Nseries , Eseries and to nokia.. We salute you
Can someone tell me why this phone is special?
Resistive touch screen? There is nothing new that Sammy, LG, HTC or even Toshiba had done already. And from the looks, it's all plasticky. I don't know why I should pay this much phone that arrived in the market 6 months too late.
you ever wonder why we never got the n96 till sept 08 when it was launched in jan 08 its the same with the n97 dont be suprised to see the n98 10mp 32gb mark my words
Knoppix toram, 07 May 2009How do you fit the CD drive into a phone?You can't lol but you can run linux off a USB my did it to hack an IN The Groove machine linux is revery small it's only 700MB to 2gb depends what version
Mobilemaster, 07 May 2009I can't understand Nokia, why made such a failure CPU in this phone, I can't understand. I kno... moreIt's not really a fail for nokia if they know what s60 5th can handle and since the 5800 is only 369Mhz then it shouldn't be so different from the N97 the nautilus will maybe be atleast 700Mhz cause linux is more RAM base then CPU speed cause you can run linux of a CD and it will still be fast
hope n98 and n99 has the similar and improved same design as n97
but with decent processor and ram!!!
i can wait for them and even iphone with Fm radio and loudspeaker :)
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Not that bad for prototype they better make it look better when it's out cause my friends N95i looked crazy lol and 5mp nokia has been working on for a few year snow so no excuses from them same with 3.2 camera on the Eseries and 5800 their was no excuse for that
