I am really waiting to get this phone from http://www.puremobile.com/Nokia/Nokia-N97-White-GSM-Phone/ i hope they will have this for a Good price.
Anonymous, 28 Apr 2009...and let's see how optimized S60 v5 runs on the 800MHz CPU of the Omnia HD with 256 MB of RA... moreWell, with nokia controlling the SO and deciding if they will take advantage of 3D acceleration or not, I don't expect Omnia HD is going to be noticeable faster (talking only about UI).
WinMob devices use to have better cpus, but nokia normally have better recepcion/call quality, which is the main reason of having a phone.. isn't it?
Me, 28 Apr 2009Actually am not all that dissapointed about the cpu, lets face it, it has a 434mhz cpu. So wha... more...and let's see how optimized S60 v5 runs on the 800MHz CPU of the Omnia HD with 256 MB of RAM, hardware graphics accelleration and dedicated 5.1 audio chip.
I don't think it's hard to see which one will win out.
This is sad the cpu specs posted was a shocker,this phone may turn out to be a masssive failboat for nokia. may still be a lil early to call it that tho.
after all these things i have read about the cpu,does it mean this phone is running slowly???? or it may hang or not run some programs??????? coz i only use the phone for calling, taking some pictures, hearing music (the most thing i use) and sometimes checking my emails with it...... i know u would think im crazy for paying almost 600euro for N97 which i can do all these on a cheaper phone, but i really love this phone and its price is not an obstacle, i just wanted to ask is it a big deal???? coz i dont put a lot of pressure on the phone or use is as an animal !! :p:p so after all of these things, will i have a problem becoz of the cpu speed???? i appreciate ur replies :):)
my this dream phone is a crap!
5800 with 434Mhz and 128ram for 599 euro! worth every penny?
it shloud cost 400euro.
i predict nokia lose market share again, they may make loss this year or after n95!
5800 is still the best phone
nokia just stick to mid range phones, your n97 cpu hurt many people
Anonymous, 28 Apr 2009you are absolutely right! LOL!!
i got a better one here...
an N-series type 5800!!! hahahaha... moreyes, touchscreen feels like 5800..
cpu like 5800 (ok a little twist) lol
ram like 5800
is this phone really an N series? lol
Anonymous, 28 Apr 2009lol.. an 5800 with qwerty??
stupid CPU!you are absolutely right! LOL!!
i got a better one here...
an N-series type 5800!!! hahahahahahah!!!!!
this phone is slower than its releasing!!! hahaha!!
staright to the trashbag!!
This phone is absolutely the best by far, i dont know why some peps are having bad opinions for this phone when its not out yet, im sure nokia will have a best seller here.....
I tough this whas a god like phone , but when i read that the cpu is that low clocked i changed my mind . its a good concept but they needed to put an better cpu in t becous this aint working -_-''
New iphone , Samsung HD , SE IDOU ??
( YES I KNOW MY ENGLISH FAILTS )
Actually am not all that dissapointed about the cpu, lets face it, it has a 434mhz cpu. So what! As far as it runs smooth am satisfied. Do you guys think the folks at Nokia aren't aware of the competition? Who knows if the code behind the n97's version of s60 5th is so optimized that anything more than 450mhz would be an overkill. You know 6 months is enough time to pimp the heck of that s60 5th code and rumours that the 5800 would be getting the n97's UI via firmware upgrade, solidifies this assumption even more.
So before we make any decisions, lets wait until we see a review of the actual retail unit. If it is able to handle ngage and multi-tasking flawlessly, then i don't see any reason for a more powerfull cpu, that will do nothing else but bump up the price. If Nokia succeeds on this front then, it would be considered an innovation rather than a dissapointment. It would also mean a new milestone for the symbian os As a clean, blotware free, optimized os. Am really suprised at you guys reactions. It would take more than an under powered cpu to seperate me from my next upgrade. Just my 2 cents. But i really think we should hold our judgements for the retail version of the N97. Am still getting one though.
HAHAHAHA!! WHAT A DISSAPOINTMENT!!!!!
to all nokia dreamers who says this phone is the best!
and its faster, better that any mobile!! well, where are you all now???!! hiding after a shameful processor specs!!! hahahaha!! the processor is a big dissapointment!!!!! after waiting and waiting and waiting, and saying great things and rumors, this is all you got???!! hahaha!! where are all the rumors youve been saying about this phone!!!!??? hahaha!! you are all a shame at yourself!!! youve been let down by your very own nokia!!! hahahaha!!!!! you guys are all so pitiful!!! and funny too!!!! hahahahaha!!!

http://www.for... moreIt's like a computer a faster CPU means it can do more things and do them faster.
Things like HD video, faster zooming of webpages and photo's etc.
It also let's you use more powerful applications like the ones the iPhone is capable of running.
Vinnlim, 28 Apr 2009very very very disapointing, cos the spec on the cpu CPU Count Single CPU CPU Type ARM ... moreIt's a good thing Apple underclocked it's 679MHz ARM 11 CPU or we'd never hear the end of it.
how the speed is important in the phone???? im not very into the phones but i just wanna in which section the cpu speed is important????? sorry for the bad english :p
Anonymous, 28 Apr 2009ops, bad english, what i ment was:
"What do you mean by saying its not confirmed by Nokia?... moreI wonder what happened to the quad-core kid?
Maybe that was his picture on Symbian freak.
