why infrared left?how i will use infrared based remote control software?
Ok, I think Allan and Anonymous need to take their arguments somewhere else. Neither of you are getting the other's point and this is by no means the place to debate the superiority or inferiority of one phone that has been out for over a year to one that has not come out as yet. Not to mention, I wouldn't compare this phone to the iPhone...they aren't in the same category. The only similarity is that they are phones and have touch screens. Everyone is entitle to their own likes and dislikes...no need to berate each other about it. That being said, I believe I'm going to sell my N82 and then purchase the N97. I think it's time for a change, and Nokia has provided me with such.

Google maps uses to the GPS to locate where you are standing then then gives you directions to your destination, hmmm so you it finds where you are at that moment and then gives you directions to where you want to be, sounds like a MAP not a GUIDANCE system, GPS software has yet been developed, hence i said faults to date, the iPhone software is continually evolving, something ive never seen symbian do.
Yes it will be out of date, 90% of its announced features are already available in phones of this class, so in 6 months it will have the same caliber of features as a phone i can buy today.
and lol @ 'The n95 is still popular!' onward brave nokia soldier! preach to your grave, as im sure everyone is listening. well ok that was sarcasm, what does the n95 still being popular got to do with it? other then to show how much of a pile of junk the n96 is
SamaN, 05 Dec 2008it is king, good bye iphoneking of PHONE??????the king of phone should have 'KING' in every aspects..king of phone only with 5mp CZ?cameras always the main aspect.wifi and other specs are just for additional..cmon nokia show us your 10mp camera!!.

The n97 will not be outdated by the time it comes out !
The n95 is still popular!
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970so youve managed to point out a bunch of obvious info that i already know about the iphone, when ive already admitted it has faults? i never even said the iphone was superior? in fact ive already said that it isnt? not once have i tried to put this phone down due to its specs other then that by the time its released it will already be behind, which is a matter you cant seem to dispute.
so my point is, what is your point? do you know nothing else other then to point out whats missing from the iphone to date? or are you just here to try and champion the nokia brand? which i mean seems a tad pointless since they have their own marketing team for matters such as those.
oh and by the way, as you dont seem to get it, if your device is as loud at a lower level then another at full then how is that gonna stop them blowing the pieces? and i did say listening to MOST of them at MAX volume blow the pieces.
Oh and if you're silly enough to be checking a MAP while still driving thats your own fault, as thats all google MAPS is, its not GPS guidance software otherwise it would probably be called Google GPS

I'm not saying the iPhone is bad. But, it's not the Alpha and Omega that Steve Jobs and some Apple fans would have us believe.
The iPhone was the innovator of a beautiful touch screen interface. But, other than that, it's a pretty average phone.

I've printed out pictures from my n95 and they were great!
As for the volume issue, nokia has enough volume you don't have to put it on full, and I've used headphones a lot with my n95 and they aren't wrecked as you try to claim!
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970oh and before i go, Nokia has lived on hype from day 1 so dont kid yourself, nokia is a company based on hype, they are still riding the wave from their on 3300 series, i still get customers saying they only buy nokia because they had one of the 3300s and how good they were

I never said the iphone was a perfect phone? yes it has its flaws, plenty of them, but it works for me, i wasnt attacking this phone in specifics, hell if it was out right now id probably tell people its better then the iphone, thats what makes me laugh at you fanboys, i take a shot at a failing giant of a company and you start sticking up for one of their products.
Who needs more volume from a music player? 90% of the headphones on the market die withing 6months if you use any player a full volume, so you knowif you want a phone to wreck your head phones then go ahead im sure youll love it.
I'm sorry but if you cant see that this phone is only offering most features that are already available in most high end phones TODAY then youre kidding yourself, and in 6months it will already look like a dinosaur.
Oh and its ugly to boot, just like the n96 and just about everything else nokia has released lately

Is that why nokia has a flash and auto focus with their camera phones because they have lost touch! Plus nokia has a removable battery! 5 meg instead of a lousy 2 !
A2dp as well and more volume for their music player!
Nokia has lost touch you say. Clue in to reality pal!

n97!!!!..mmmhh..why should it is just 5mp? i think this model should stand at 8mp or more..cmon nokia,sony ericsson n samsung had left you behind in cameras standard.

Even the n95 is better than the iphone, but the n97 absolutely kills iphone!
nokia did it again... first with the n95 labeled as king... and now this is going to hit just as hard
better then iphone...blah blah blah
do you all realise that by the time this hits the market the iphone will be well on its way to being 2 years old? and do you really think apple are just lolligagging around thinking the iphone 3g is gonna be all they need to compete in this market? thats right, pigs a#$ they are, by the time this phone hits you can almost bet the next iphone model will be announced, nokia is simply playing a game of catch up
