good point before, n97 doesnt have to rely on applications to make it a good phone.
i cant believe this! what the hell is wrong with u all? PC vs Mac, Intel vs AMD, Nvidia vs ATI, Windows vs Linux (oh and Leopard), PlayStation vs XBox and now Nokia vs Apple? how much mentally disturbed are you to defend with religious fanatism a multinational company? i only care to what fits for me and not to be fooled in buying a fancy product which wont cover my needs. i prefer multifunctional and customizable devices in reasonable prices and also i hate following a trend so for the time being i choose PC vs Mac=PC, Intel vs AMD=Always AMD, Nvidia vs ATI=Always ATI, Windows vs Linux=both, PS3 vs Xbox=PC and finally Nokia vs Apple=Nokia symbian s60 series for now simply because it is more familiar to me,much more time around the market,many more functions and it is not a trend as iPhone is.But these are just my tastes and opinions nothing more or less.I also hate iPod (even when it came out there where better mp3 players in the market -and cheaper- especially from SonicBlue).In the future though i will seriously consider the iPhone but along with HTC,LG,Samsung,Sony-Er,Gigabyte etc and of course Nokia.As for the sales drop for Nokia it should be and it is healthy,no company should dominate a market indefinitely for various reasons.And that was not(just) because of the iPhone or any drop of quality from Nokia but also because of LG/Samsung highest design and quality standards,Sony-E cheap and beautiful mid range models,HTCs high quality/design on high-end and Gigabyte relatively cheap smartphones etc in the last years.In the end no harm done,just choose what you like and dont fight for meaningless things.
Apple 1985, 23 Apr 2009Apple fans rejoice Report: Nokia's Comes With Music not selling very well in the UK
http://... moreSome guy from Nokia was saying the 5800 was the best selling MP3 player in the UK, I guess it was just more hype.
No wonder the comes with music is such a fail, it adds a huge cost to the outright price of the handset, it expires in a year and Nokia is very tight lipped about what happens after and you can't even use the "free" music as a ringtone.
Meanwhile Apple sold 11,000,000 iPods in the last quarter, I wonder how many were in the UK?
just another reason why nokia will become the next motorola. even on their region nokia is losing to apple. i was going to get the n97 but why bother when i can get the new iphone 3.0 in june or july.
Nokia took to long to release the n97 and now they are suffering for it ha ha.
Apple fans rejoice Report: Nokia's Comes With Music not selling very well in the UK
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970iPhone profits up by 123% for the quarter compared to the same quarter last year, Nokia profits down 90%.
3.79 million iPhones sold during the quarter, that's way more than the 5800's total sales since it launched in November.
11 million iPods sold.
More details Nokia fans :
Apple today announced financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2009. Apple posted revenue of $8.16 billion and net quarterly profit of $1.21 billion, or $1.33 per diluted share, compared to revenue of $7.51 billion and net quarterly profit of $1.05 billion, or $1.16 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. Gross margin was 36.4 percent, compared to 32.9 percent in the year-ago quarter, and international sales accounted for 46 percent of the quarter's revenue. The numbers represent the best March Quarter revenue and earnings in Apple history.
Using non-GAAP data, which eliminates subscription-based accounting for the iPhone and Apple TV, Apple would have had $9.06 billion revenue and $1.66 billion of net income.
Apple shipped 2.22 million Macintosh computers during the quarter, a unit decline of 3 percent over the year-ago quarter. The company also sold 11.01 million Pods during the quarter, representing 3 percent unit growth over the year-ago quarter. Quarterly iPhone unit sales reached 3.79 million, up 123 percent from the year-ago-quarter.

I think we have fotgotten something ! nokia after several years produce somthing like I phone , but its still thick . the design of n97 is great but if we want to compare with i phone , i think the technology of apple production is the best.
World's most Advanced Mobile Computer... N97
can't wait also for N98....
you people, this says nokia n97, not iphone, so lets only make constructive critisims here about the nokia n97 please, so all you iphone fans, GET AWAY!!!!!! nokia is the largest handset maker in the world, and they are the best phones i have ever used, iphone is a small fry compared to them. btw, the n97 is 10times better, because it doesnt require apps to be great, unlike iphone!!!
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970AT&T's first quarter income was down 9 percent on essentially flat revenue but its mobile business -- buoyed by its exclusive iPhone partnership with Apple -- continued to see healthy growth.
Anonymous, 22 Apr 2009Apple is changing the perception and use of mobile internet, the numbers are exceptional in a ... moreso your telling me i'm dumb and i can't understand
apple made a phone for...HA!
everyone that thinks ipod is not an mp3 player thinks that there is no mp3 player also as a standard mobile phones
a 3 in one device is not an iphone
cause most phones low,mid and high range phone have browsers
they might not be able to pinch ,flick and all that stupid stuff
but the fact that
everyone that got an iphone had an blackberry or an ipod and have the iphone being there first touchscreen phone they don't like to look at something called options
ipod 80gb video
and ipod mini 8gb
i sold them both after i found out how apple was monitering me with a embedded virus from itunes and the fact that ipods were everywere and i wasn't gonna be come one of the followers that follow cause the trend is ipods or some bull
i got a zune after it came out and i love it
no more apple ever for me
and i'm even looking foward the the Zune HD
which really puts the iphone alone to shame even though it's only an mp3 player
Anonymous, 22 Apr 2009How come Nokia is not driving AT&T business if its phone are " so good "
An industry analys... moreyou can say the same about the iphone in europe
your only talking N.A numbers cause that's all apple can count

E71x,5800,N85,N82,N79 are selling really well in N.A
they make a few ads and that's it
apple 5millions ads that are all the same,smack talking other mobiles and mobile companies
inaccurate claims that they end up getting sued for
trying to show off how there so called jesus phone is 5 years ahead of the mobile industry
....give me a break they are so far up their own a$$ it's not funny
