A great competitor observes what the adversary is doing and modifies strategy in order to win. One is even willing to imbibe elements of the opponent in order to attain victory.
Nokia must have seen the effect of Samsung's Omnia HD and SE Idou on the top-of-the-range crowd. Nokia have no choice but to improve the spec. The N97 is a high-end device and so there must be no slacking. My advice is for Nokia to implement an 8MP camera with Xenon flash and an option for HD recording. This is obviously going to be a year of high spec devices. Nokia will be wasting their time releasing the N97 with its current spec. They need to improve it. They should not be arrogant just because they have the largest market share.
This device is not even due till June so they have time to get to work!
It is confirmed
N97 + Skype + euro550 + multitouch alternative + flick scroll in webbrowser
multitouch alternative is like drawing 2D in Autocad!!!!!
double tap(center point) + drag(radius) = one finger operation
phone Call Nokia R&D about your release of this one finger multitouch!!! let them know the idea and implement it in N97 OS webbrowser and photo browser!
Kevin, 23 Mar 2009the good thing about most Nseries are the speakers. They are VERY LOUD and VERY CLEAR. Iphone ... moreagree, Nseries phones have very loud excellent speaker, do they have loud volumes output via earpiece? output volume on iphone via earpieces is very loud!

Kevin, 23 Mar 2009the speakers are under the Qwerty keyboard on the left and right sidesthe good thing about most Nseries are the speakers. They are VERY LOUD and VERY CLEAR. Iphone speakers cannot compete with my N95 8GB-it blows them out of the room.
Anonymous, 22 Mar 2009where is it's speaker located? and why it's thicknes variable?the speakers are under the Qwerty keyboard on the left and right sides
Giang Mai, 22 Mar 2009Looks like another crappy phone. If the N96 is only 16GB and lags going from menu to menu, jus... moredon't wory about speed..!
bcoz, nokia n97 have a big cpu maybe 600 mhz,
and 256 mb of RAM.
Looks like another crappy phone. If the N96 is only 16GB and lags going from menu to menu, just imagine a phone with 32GB built-in!
GP, 22 Mar 2009Personally touched and used the phone, it is a wonderful piece. Waiting for the final release.... moreApple does not invent Multitouch! I am not a lawyer, so i cannt comment on this patent things, but i think we still can have multitouch like software on N97.
here are some information i got from other site and some comments.
Stantum precision multitouch on resistive is way better than that on iphone, YOUTUBE "STANTUM" YOULL KNOW WHAT I MEAN! THEY SAID IT WORK ON SYMBIAN, WINMO AND ANDROID, only problem is it does need an extra small chip:( nokia should buy this company after symbian acquisition.
N97 has no this extra chip in it, but that does not stop us to have zoom rotate(plugin preferred) IN WEB/photo BROWSER with just one Finger
last word, resistive can be more powerful, useful and modern than that on iphone if it is well done (stantum is a good example)
Nokia n97 should have at least One-Finger Multitouch or multitouch alternative in it!!!!! this way, n97 is complete and 100% perfect
