Ok weirdos, I have tried most of these phones except for the N97. They all have their good and bad. Unfortunately I like to be able to make a call and not have to search for where the call menu is hidden under what app. menu sub-program etc. I am still using my old N70 its a rock. I have it almost three years now. Even dropped it from a second floor a few times. Still working. Iphone is a good deal if you want to do things other than what you do with a phone. Even then Nokia still has more features than Iphone ever will. Different OS thats all.Im waiting on the N97 also, looks cool, and I donr care about price. It just has to do what I want it to at the press of a button not a few of them....
Just because of what people in this forum are saying about the iphone i decided to exchange my Nokia N96 with my Boss iphone. The phone is really nice but there's a problem.
If you have been using Nokia phones for long you won't like other brands.
I miss my N-gage games, all my installed apps and much more.
I love Nokia but not saying iphone is bad.
Go for your choice but i'll tell you to go for i.... Oh NOKIA for its my kind of phone
Why do ppl insist on comparing apples to oranges and then cannot figure out why the argument makes no sense?
The iPhone is not in the same competing class as the N97.
Class I: iPhone, Touch Diamond/HD, 5800 XpressMusic, i900 Omnia.
Class II: X1, Touch Pro, N97.
Class III: Blackberry (non storm), Nokia E Series, Samsung i Series
It is like comparing a truck to a station wagon. Some of the features overlap but the design and purpose are different. If I want a QWERTY the iphone will not cut it. If I want a big screen and a QWERTY the Curve will not cut it.
And the iPhone is by no means perfect but there are iPhone fanboys out there than would make you believe it is. The biggest downside of the iPhone for me was the camera and bluetooth. It was the best UI I ever used tho. Next phone for me is the Touch Pro but that is because this phone is not out yet.
I know this phone will ROCK i've been waiting for Nokia touch screen phone. I enjoyed my N95 8GB and also the N96. I think its time to take apple off the lead.
I know Nokia N97 will be a better phone.
"N97 will ROCK"
observer, 12 Jan 2009People, can you stop comparing this phone to the Iphone. Iphone forum are at the Iphone and No... morelike the guy said earlier, ppl who came here 2 reasons
like the device or damn jealous of this device. iphone has better cpu n so what cuz it cant even do anything, video recording, auto focus, not even 3mp (n it costs more than mid range phone that has 3mp). ppl talkin about affording iphone, its not about affording, its about whether the money is worthy or not. i aint goin 2 pay sumthing 2 buy iphone when i can use that money 2 buy i touch n a proper camera n still got some money left to go to mcdonalds to buy big mac.

But there is a good reason why they do that. It is usually to protect you from damaging your phone, and so they can fully integrate services and updates to keep your iphone working properly. It is also to ensure high quality downloads of apps, videos and songs and give due credit to artists and developers. I personally do not see anything wrong with what Apple is doing. It may limit some of your freedom, but at the same time, that link of Apple with your iphone keeps the iphone working the way it should be. Apple needs to do what they are doing in order to fully integrate their services. How can they provide updates to work flawlessly with the iphone if you have tweaked the phone and altered its software? Apple is not forcing anyone to buy the iphone. You have a choice.

All new smart phones must come with Dual SIM capibility from now onwards if they want to succeed.

...basically everything that the iPhone can do, do you know why?
Because I can buy an iPhone right now and use it, can you buy an N97?
No, so it stands to reason you can't do anything with it, therefore at this point in time the iPhone is superior.
observer, 12 Jan 2009People, can you stop comparing this phone to the Iphone. Iphone forum are at the Iphone and No... moreHow can it be the best so far?
It hasn't been released yet, the N96 is the current Nokia flagship.
The Samsung i8510 is the current best S60 phone.
The N82 is the current best Nokia camera phone.
