Aple iphone most i sold in America, because there is many aple users, but not much at all in EU!
But sens nokia 5800xm started selling in America, the aple have fall and is collapsing even iTunes to minimum, so i hope aple users don't start seeking their many back for being cheated by aple company, it would be catastrophe for aple lol!
The Europeans will not want that crap iphone that cant do ordinary things one old nokia can do as a standalone phone!

Are you more than 10 years old or not, sens you don't understand the important possibilities on camera phones and OS!

Top ... morenokia is all quantity not quality. they create phones with no big upgrade at all. all n-series phones are similar phones. camera mostly changes and of course the design, but nothing more. thats why nokia is the number 1 in sales, not because they have good phones but because they have many phones to sell. imagine every year they will have an average of 7-10 phones a year, about 15-20 phones for the last 2 years vs apple's 2 iphones for the last 2 years. if you analyze it technically, 1nokia vs 1apple sales is totally a knockout. there is no single nokia phone that sells 18million units, iphone did, and iphone 3G even beats 5-nokia phone sales combined.

battle have now shifted frp, hardware to software and services, things that matters most to "regular" people. Samsung have throw hardware specs in innov8 but it didnt sell, even N96 sold more than innov8.. thats because people dont care about specs anymore.. iPhone for example, the biggest smartphone seller of the year!!

Now if you take a look at the FCC photo's you'll see the American TI CPU it's one of the lower one's as shown by the N97's camera and video restrictions.
Now the thing is a phone with the power to handle HD video, like the Samsung and LG can use that power for other functions so will beat the N97 at everything.
Like I said fanbois will lap it up because they don't know any better.

The reason why they dont have 8MP or HD on this phone is that they will market this on the rich and can afford people, business oriented (iPhone, Blackberry) who doesn't spend 100% of their day on their phone, who have plasma tv's so they dont watch movie on their phone, has sophisticated camera and video camera so they dont need HD, 8MP on their phone, etc. iPhone dont have all the hardwares but it outsell any other smartphone in the market.
If this phone is a boring phone for you then your Omnia HD is boring rather because I can do anything on this phone that Omnia HD can. Text, call, watch video, snap image and video, listen to music etc. Omnia HD offers nothing new!!
CPU is not announced yet because Nokia have learned, never share your best feature with competitors. Base on the sample videos, UI of N97 is as fast as everything else, even better.
Ovi store will sell like iStore does. Asks the iPhone people why.
Nokia has many supporters because it have the best services and phones offered to us. This is why Samsung fanboy like you envy Nokia and hate us because we have more that you don't have.

Imagine that, I see you ass little kids, even shop is closed they go in front of windows watching chocolates inside shop, but the kids lick the window hopping they'll get a taste!
Aple have fantasize it's costumers, and your iphone is nothing, it's overpriced, and you should go compare it with some low-end old phones for capabilities and not to bother us here around, as it is not our taste for iphone at all!
And don't tell me about error update or phone update, because iphone os is not complete at all, and if it was good, than all the other big companies will want to have peace of aple OS, but is not good, and they goon for better OS and they have chosen Symbian OS60 for their devices okay, now do you see your position where you are with your iphone or not!!!
Don't worry I had one iphone3g to try, but in 18hours i have return to shop at ones!
theres a new 15 min video looking at the n97 posted by tnkgrl on his blog today, judging from it the n97 screen transition etc looks alot faster than it did in some of the older videos, makes me excited for it

Let's take one old nokia with very lo... moreSamsung's, Blackberries and LG's come with built in DIVX support, Nokia's don't they are too cheap to pay the licencing, they use cheaper lower priced CPU's then they charge more for the phones.
That's the reason they don't have HD, 120fps slow motion, 8 megapixel cameras etc a second class phone at a first class price.
Boring old phone, outclassed before it's even released that's what you get for hyping up a phone for 7 months before release.
Keep the CPU secret because it's outdone by the competitors.
I wonder how Nokia will make people use the OVI store because everything they will sell is free somewhere else.
it's a good thing Nokia has so many mindless fanbois who will buy it like sheep and will say nothing but how good it is even when they are asking for help to solve problems just like the 5800.

you have to us itunes with EVERYTHING
you can't write when it's cold
the phone has garbage speakers
my 5 year old E70 has louder speakers and it's only mono XD that's ONE speaker
all those features that are gonna be on the iphone was a beta were is the real update and why the hell would you make a beta update for a mobile phone OS....
and the fact the the update doesn't even have full support of the older phone WHO PAYS FOR UPDATES
it's the only company that sells updates
the update is an upgrade to the OS that fixes bugs,glitches and adds content and makes improvments to the OS
you've been another victom of iphone and apple stupidity
enjoy paying for usless apps and FREE updates XD
Anonymous, 07 Apr 2009It doesn't mean better CPU, it's better UI, all it depends on GUI designer and the programing ... morepeople who does not own an iphone never really knew what it gives you. i use nokia my entire life since my 6210 year 2000 to n95 as my last, and im happy getting an iphone for a change. i dont pay what i need, there is 1000 free useful application to download. and every payable applications that gets old becomes free. and 3.0 software update will be free. and one thing i learned, apple gives his customers software update to add features and improve phone features. unlike nokia that gives software update to fix bugs and errors. in short, apple's software is better, no need fixing errors, thats what iphone user's one of the many big advantages over other mobile phone users.
Well all i can say is, after working for Tmobile for 6 years in the US and Now for Swisscom for 2 years, i am a cellphone junky... and with this phone i think i just found my drug...
Finally a phone i will keep for a year...
But again, we don't know the future...
It's not the cpu nor the gui it's al about the camera. Incredible this camera. I will sell my Canon 5D for this camera!
