you could just say anything but nokia then, and don't tell me watch the vidoe , that means nothing. i'm using nokia for a long time and never had a problem.
CPU AND RAM was a secret over the past 5 months, nokia was embarrased to announce this stupid spu and ram at nokia world 2008.
N98 would has below 600Mhz below 192 ram, i guess
Nokia likes slow machine, we all know that,
idiot phone has 600Mhz gpu and good music quality and fast internet, and responsive high tech multitouch screen, it really impressive despite it lacks fm radio and many basic functions,
wiat for new iphone announcement and nokia world 2009 before deciding n97!!!!! i am smart guy
Anonymous, 05 May 2009the price of n97 is different in different country.
it seem $699 in US 650euro in Germany 600... morebest of all, its going to be cheaper here in the philippines c", it will play within Php30,000 below if it will cost $699 or 499Euro in europe and US.. that's what i commonly observe within years of following mobile phones. even N96 will cost more than N97..
awesome price point for a power device!!
I think Nokia should learn from Motorola n Ericsson.Long time ago they are leading this comunication industries,but where are they now?
Lack of creativity n improvement cause them further back of the grid.If Nokia still hold this kind of decision(creating smartphones with poor Proc n Ram),believe me just matter of time before Nokia following the same way(with Moto n Ericsson).

Samsung lovers shocking news for you guys, the omnia hd is way more expensive then the N97 anf its not even the 16gb version... hahaha...
Samsung omnia 8gb (plastic back cover) - £529... ***notice its the 8gb version, not 16gb***
Nokia N97 32gb (white) - £499
Wow! So much space on that omnia 8gb for your precious hd videos. I guess 2mins hd recording with no audio would be an awesome bargain. XD
Sorry to burst your bubble guys but thats the fact and brace yourselves for more bone crunching facts and dissapointments regarding your over priced, gimmicky, messaih phone.
Engadget reports nokia n97 pre-order price as $699. Woot! Am so getting this phone.
how come on the nokia usa preorder page it says estimated shipping date is in july? does that mean its release is delayed?
iolo003, 05 May 2009now that the price of this phone was confirmed (499Euro)($699), i'm also finalizing my N97 and... morethe price of n97 is different in different country.
it seem $699 in US 650euro in Germany 600 euro Italy and according to an earlier post here 500 in Spain.
now that the price of this phone was confirmed (499Euro)($699), i'm also finalizing my N97 and N86 8MP battle.
N97 wins as my next upgrade. c", thanks Nokia for listening.
I was really looking forward to this phone. Now after the announcement of such a poor CPU, all my hype for this has gone down the can... I'm just going to wait until the middle of the year when phones using the NVIDIA Tegra chipsets start to roll out.
To slooooow, too bad, choose the Idou, or Samsung Omnia HD. I hope Nokia will learn, and the N98 will have 1GHZ CPU.
Anonymous, 04 May 2009a device equip with 32GB internal memory called MIDRANGE phone ??
i get ur message, a devic... moreyou dont have any point but a kiddy like comment! the you think big memory is enough to call it a smartphone? well thats really funny!
n-series is a higher class midrange phones! because highend phones are the smartphones/pocket pc phones! theres no way in hell a symbian phone can be called a smartphone. A smartphone is a mobile phone offering advanced capabilities, often with PC-like functionality, and a smartphone is a phone that runs complete operating system software providing a standardized interface and platform for application developers! and symbian are not a pc like performers, because symbian is not fully equipped with functions you need for comfortable email and Internet use, and it dont even have its own device-independent development platform! so how can you say a symbian phone with high memory is already called a highend phone/smartphone?! haha yes nokia is a midrange phone maker!!
check this link guys..its a nice phone..
Anonymous, 05 May 2009CORRECTION
How do ypu know it costs $699pre-order from nokia on-line store delivery in July
quoted at $699 in the US.
I doubt Nokia will include MPCore in the N97. If they chose not to include 3D acceleration in future phones, what makes you think that they'll include MPCore???!! We can all wait until Symbian^3 or ^4 comes out with TI OMAP 3430's support, then it'll include the good stuff.
James, 05 May 2009Nice phone but prefer HTC Pro 2 cause its more customizable!!! what is htc touch pro 2 cpu & RAM specs? i'm in the confusion here, since n97 will potentially slow. that's my one only reason looking for similar substitutes. pro2 seems fine, but it is only 3.12mp camera, and poor video quality. and don't tell me that is because this is business phone. do we think that business people don't need good camera or video? come on man, it's just untolerable excuse for such high end mobile we need them also. having stated my points, i'm really confused here.. i really really hope that n97 won't be slow - specially when it is loaded - not in here this forum, but in REAL LIFE. we shall find out..
Anonymous, 04 May 2009a device equip with 32GB internal memory called MIDRANGE phone ?? i get ur message, a devic... moredon't be so cynical, man. i get the dude's point.. what good is 32GB if you can't fully use it because it could make you phone jammed (or at least you have some worries it would), because nokia put such low processor & ram memory, that potentially dissapointing. that was his point i guess. i like n97 but that shouldn't stop me to see the real facts.

that's all and READ for crist sake
stan, 04 May 2009I love the n97. so your saying that the way the n97 is set up it wont be slow? can you explain... moreThink of it this way
if the itouch had the same CPU as the N97 then there shall be no problem cause
their both using ARM11 CPUs but the fact that apple is using the older CPU the one they have in the N95 and it's only single CPU then lag happens but nope
nokia stepped up and is using the MPCore cpu smart
just like intels CPUs
might seem all the same cause of the name but the CPUs are different lol
