Nokia are followers of popular trends others start and always have been.
Motorola Razr becomes popular- Nokia release a flipphone after many years (a pretty dumb one you couldn't open it with the headphones plugged in... LOL).
checked the Carphone Warehouse website out an on phones coming out soon the N97 an 6700 will be available in April,just hope this news is right,as i bought the 5800 express to get used to touch screen mobiling an i really like it,an the Screen sizes for images an videos its magic an if the N97 as the type of speakers on it like the 5800 express the N97 it will be good for music,an the only letdown of the 5800 is its camera so hope Nokia do not let everybody down an put a weak camera on the N97, an put one on the same as the N95 8gb one,then this will show Samsung an Sony Ericsson they will never leave Nokia behind with any mobile they release

Anonymous, 04 Apr 2009you nokia fans are all down with this junky.
sorry but i dont like sony ericsson and this jun... moreI think Nokia is the best the only problem with their handsets generally are the price.
They stick to making serious business tools and not glorified toys or Gimmicks.
i hope the N97 does not have a host problems as when the E90 was launched?
i will think of buying this phone or the HTC Pro 2 in the future...tell mi which one, but for now i will buy the e71 in May....

1.Official Skype fully integrated in ... more2 months is still a long time for developers to come up with additional innovations and i know their poking it out to give consumers the best mobile phone experience. c",
i like your idea on lowering the memory to lower the price. my wish would then be at least 2GB internal memory so there would be a massive decrease in the price. i couldn't even consume the 2GB micro sd memory on my N82, so i don't really need that much memory.
other wish!! Qualcomm Snapdragon 1GHz CPU on board.. since they didn't announced the CPU for this phone yet.

What is the CPU speed?????????????????????????????????????????????????????66 This phone is suppose to be available in June, why the CPU speed is still unknown????????????????????????????????????????????????????
Must be at least 500 MHz processor...if not, i won't buy a slow $900USD phone, now way!

1.Official Skype fully integrated in N97, not a standalone application!
2.Ovi Store by Nokia replaces old Download
3.Hopefully Nokia Photo Browser replaces the default Gallery
4.Nokia Map for N97 has been improved as seen in the new Youtube video
5.Flick scroll in Internet Browser
6.S60V5 is User-friendly, Finger-friendly and Stylus-friendly
Wishlist for N97 Firmware:
1.Flick scroll in homescreen Widgets.
Unlimited widgets to be added to its home screen.
Search Bar instead of Search Button
2.Multitouch-like Software for Web/Photo/Text, Prefer one-finger Multitouch
3.Typing aid for typing on the Virtual Full Qwerty Keyboard, I have found that typing speed on 5800XM cant keep up with my typing speed, is it because there is no multitouch feature on Nokia touch?
Wishlist for hardware spec
1. 3d HD ACC/GPU
2. Fast CPU
3. infrared:( not likely to happen
4. 16GB version to lower the price
5. Glass screen for resistive screen:( not possible for resistive, how about a quality scratch-resistant plastic?
6. hope the build quality is excellent, and its whole plastic body is scratch-resistant and not the shiny one. I hate ipod touch 2g shiny metal back, it is impossible to keep it from scratches:)
7.two more months to go! WOW!!! i predict 24 June, cause 24 june 2008 nokia announces the acquisition of Symbian company. perhaps they make a new announcement to acquire Stantum?
(NPhone = NSeries + Nokia Internet Tablet)Rocks!
I love doing typing on, seeing at, watching on N97 when it is places on my table, i love to use just one hand to operate it when the keyboard is closed.
As in my n95 i have a program where i can use my phone as a remote control because i have infrared, your iphone can't do that can it. No infrared on the iphone or n97.
Anonymous, 05 Apr 2009I can swap SIM's on my iPhone without switching it off! Let's see your POS Nokia do that!Most people don't have 2 sim cards, as in 2 seperate numbers or 2 cell phone plans,unless it's your wifes sim card, so i don't think thats much of an issue. My understanding was that the sim was very difficult to take out of the iphone, unless that was the first iphone.
Nokia have done a good job on N97, developments on its UI and software have greatly improve and by the time it comes out, it will be a full pledge force to reckon with.
What they are doing now is stepping up to Apple's game, massive promotion, creating hype and there doing it effectively. N97 just like iPhone don't have the Hardware specs as Omnia HD or Idou but it will throw up its competition just like what iPhone is doing to the smartphone market. This would bring N97 to the top even defeating iPhone in the end.
32GB internal + 16GB microsd = 48GB
can play WMV,MP4,3GP,RMVB,FLV via internet

Let's see your POS Nokia do that!
Does anyone know if it is possible to upload windows mobile 6.1 to this phone?
Will I have to erase the Symbian OS totally to do so?
If it is possible to erase the Symbian OS totally, how do I do that?
Or will I end up with both Symbian and Windows Mobile on the phone and is that functional?
I am not familiar with the Symbian OS and I am not quite confident that the Symbian OS will meet all my needs. Much less, interact with my windows Vista laptop.
I guess what I really want to know is, Can the Symbain OS interact with a Windows XP and Vista?
With windows mobile 6.1 a can transfer files back and forth from my cell phone to my computer.
Please help, you Tech Super Heros out-there.

I do believe you are doing something wrong, or have no idea how to use a phone. Regular software updates + common sense + TLC = a happy non freezing iPhone.
