Simply, 05 Mar 2009ok let me shut up ur gps clame, A-Gps means assited gps meaning that the cell towers are used ... moreOnly since firmware update 12, when it was released the N95 didn't have A-GPS support meh, so the list is down to 16 things the iPhone can do that the 4 year old N95 can't.
Any news that nokia plans to use Stantum precise multitouch in n97 or future touch device phone oe tablet? Is so nokia would make a big step forward!
Stantum multitouch is way better than that on iphone!
Let hope n97 supports it, we want it so badly in nokia phone!

How smart we are, sigh. O and to put it to rest wen u have voice guided navi, come talk to me, best part is im nt restricted to 1 app. i have nokia maps, Garmin xt, and amaze all of which work perfectly fine for voice navigation. O i have google maps also so i can look down at my phone every 5 mins like u dom :P

i can use my E70 to record video,voice and send as an MMS with a picture And i can do it at negative 20 degrees XD can you do that with your iphone....oh wait you can't even use gloves with a capasitive screen bad luck for you.... My 2mp on my E70 takes way better pics
There are millions more apps then the appstore ever had and if Nokia had made the OviStore sooner .... You sh*t your self at all the apps that you would see
but looks like your gonna see it in may XD
Apple does not invent touch screen , multiyouch, only the implementatiom of multitouch can be patented, softeare/ hardware tie together! Pinch to zoom on resistive touch ?

15. Play raw h264 video files linked to on websites without requiring a Flash wrapper.
16. Know that 70% of the money paid for an App via the apple App store will go to the developer.
17. Read Kindle books from Amazon and sync bookmarks, annotations and last page read across multiple devices.
One thing which Rafe witnessed at MWC was Stantum's demonstrations of some insanely responsive multi-touch applets working on a standard resistive touchscreen. Leaving aside the demo applets (and also Rafe's own comments, he's still writing up MWC as we speak), then surely this type of technology is what Nokia should be building into its touchscreen phones, so that text input can be increased over the currently limited speeds? Demo and more below.
I've said several times that one of the problems of the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic is that text input using the virtual, full-screen keyboard is on the slow side, possibly slower than using predictive text on a standard hardware keypad. The two main problems are:
There are no writing aids - Nokia needs to implement some kind of spelling correction, along the same lines as that on the Apple iPhone, which works brilliantly. At the moment, far too many miskeys are made, making the overall typing experience much slower.
The use of a standard resistive screen means that one 'keypress' isn't registered unless you've completely lifted your finger from the previous one. This produces an unnecessary speed restriction. There are two solutions here:
Rewrite the existing touchscreen drivers to intelligently parse through the points of contact such that the driver can selectively ignore/handle multiple concurrent screen presses, working on the unique presses when available. This would give a theoretical doubling in virtual keyboard input speed and could be implemented fairly easily in a new firmware build.
Change the resistive screen technology as per Stantum's guidelines, to allow true all-pixels monitoring and true multi-touch. This would obviously only be for future hardware and could be years away, but still worth thinking about and doing.
Engadget did a good job of videoing the Stantum demos and this is embedded below, for your interest.
N97 + Skype + Ovi Store + Firmware Improvement(learn from 5800 feedback) = Delayed to June 2009
Can some one confirm does n97 has flick scroll?
if u want to have the best phone in the world then buy this N97. together with samsung omnia HD & SE Idou. lol
i cant wait to see the finish product of this phone. the widgets competition is about it end and the best will be chosen to dress it up.
please lower the price of this phone nokia c", and have it compatible with su-33w, a nokia bluetooth dvbh reciever, it would be perfect.

The 4 year old N95 didn't have A-GPS so needs to 'see' the sky.
13 things so far the the iPhone can do that the N95 can't, despite your lame excuses and attempts to shift the goalposts.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970It take long because nokia want to brimg ovi store, skype, more firmaware improvement to n97. Hopefully we see flick scrolling and some multitouch!
Ovi store vs applr app store!
Obviously ovi store have many killing apps which are not allowed to enter the apple app store!:)
O do npt mind whether the numbet of apps in ovi store are more than app store or not, we just need to install high qualitiy and useful applications
Can you tell what are the killing apps in appple app store? That can not be found on symbian s60v3, v5 is still new?
If you think only apple iphone can do multitouch, than you are completely wrong!!
G1 has been hacked to use pinch
5800n97 will be hacked too
N97 super nice! But it still not perfwct, it lack dvbh, xenon flash and carl zeiss wide angle lem and flwxible aperture! And hopefilly the mind blowing stantum techbology come to n97!
