bottom line, unquestionalbly, undeniable, without doubt, assuredly, obviously and the plain truth is: Nokia is theee best.
And the N97? Sheesh, the height of awesome-ness.
-Some negatives are the really stuffed and crowded screen (hope they can be turned off),
-The camera should've been with higher resolution
-The Video recording should've been better
Othrewise, i am sooo buying this. like RESPECT!
8 megapixel? Nokia was pending to launch an 8 MPx phone because based on general surveys: most wanted feature is -> Music & Internet
anyway, I love the standby screen with full of online widgets.....
Anonymous, 29 Dec 2008better than cannot record video and QVGA qualitySo, I guess you could Bluetooth video's taken on an LG Renoir or Samsung i8510 and watch them in full widescreen.
Do you think the N97 will playback in letterbox like watching 4:3 TV on a widescreen.
I suppose we'll have to wait until it comes out.
Anonymous, 29 Dec 2008you better go to SOON EXPIRE XPERIA there and said what you have said here
HYPE N FAME
c... moreNavi wheel?
Hey, you've given me an idea, we could sell navi wheel stickers to people with cheaper Nokia's, after all it'll work the same.
Do you want to start a business?
If Eldar says SE phones r not worth, then this guy is not pragmatic. Jus talk Nokia users they always hav lots of complaints, n thts truth even all nokia fans knw tht. But SE users r always happy.......... Jus had a demo of XPERIA gr8 phone but very expensive.. an belive me the screen is much better than nokia 16 m OLED screen... Nokia always make ppl fool by giving such nonsense specs n hype :P
SE is the best. Sound of Xperia is better than dedicated iphone!
yes u are rite, we should listen what expert like eldar...
He said, W902 becomes a burden in SE portofolio, too pricy with less value.
He said, Xperia has so many problems in hardware/software and it cant do much at all
He said, C702 for the first shipment, the coating tends to peel of with time, low quality...
Poor Eldar, he got angry mail from SE fans.
Why dont all of u SE fans just listen what expert says, and if u dont like just ignore. simple as that.
please listen from what expert say, SE fans !!! FROM:uExN
HYPE n FAME very suite SOON EXPIRE XPERIA
soon expire xperia need 10month to release compare to 6month
soon expire xperia got HARDWARE problem compare to SOFTWARE problem
(SOFTWARE can be fixed by upgrading it, hardware need $$ to change it/ fix it even worst if a hardware can't work probably and will effect other part been destroyed )
Anonymous, 29 Dec 2008good question, why don't you ask this question at c905 there?? c905 max QVGA ask them ,... moreVGA is 640x480 pixels, not even 1 megapixel, how will 4:3 format look on the N97 widescreen, it seems like a strange choice really.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970How much will this phone be in Japan...
...Oh sorry, I forgot Nokia pulled out of Japan, I guess hype and fame doesn't work very well there, exept for Vertu.
The Japanese love symbian phones as well, 4th largest market...

Anonymous, 29 Dec 2008N96 ?? got any problem???
1st time release got software problem, but do NOKIA didn't care ... moreN96 the 'multimedia flagship', released six months late and still needed 3 software updates, where are the big improvements on the N95 8GB... hype and fame is what they use to sell it, when that wasn't working too well, time to get the hype machine going again with the N97.
'Look what's coming in six months, don't look too close at what we got now!'
Look at all the people who are commenting on how this phone will work, based on...
...hype and fame!
guys your referring to "OPEN LINE".. every network must secure that you will use their services that is why this is their strategy so you would not shift from one network to another, and this is only applicable for mobile unit that uses simcard. here in the Philippines we can unlock it in just a few seconds....
N97 also can't satisfied, then don't said other phone
NOKIA drop in a lot of feature compare to other
people who think N97 cannot been satisfy , better don't buy a cell phone buy a computer, that's all
Anonymous, 29 Dec 2008I don't know about that, Nokia do pretty well on hype and fame, just take a look at this phone... moreN96 ?? got any problem???
1st time release got software problem, but do NOKIA didn't care it??
