The phrase "iphone killer" is just so over used, lol. First the N95, then HTC Diamond, then the Omnia, then Xperia, then HTC HD, and now the N97, and the iphone is still very well alive =)
When will some people get it? The iphone is in a league of its own. It's like a phone category all by itself. Some people keep on spiting the iphone with its shortcomings, yet every new high-tech phone that comes out is being compared to it, lol.
The iphone has other features to offer that appeals to a lot of people who could care less for MMS or SMS forwarding. If MMS and SMS forwarding is what you do every day, then the iphone is obviously not for you, lol, but it does not mean that the iphone is no longer a savvy piece of technology. It just so happens that it gives more priority to other features. The only valid complaint about the iphone that's kind of crippling its users, is the absence of copy/paste, but I've heard that Apple is working on it, along with SMS forwarding, so we'll see.
As for the N97, I think it's a worthy competitor of the iphone. Hopefully it would push Apple to work faster on copy/paste and SMS forwarding. People with digital cameras could care less about megapixels or video capture on their phones. I know, because I used to have the great N95, and after using its camera for a little while, I still went back to my digital camera for better results, and have not been using the N95's camera since then.
after the announcement of N97 4 days ago, another nokia touch phone image emerge.
dub as the "Jesus Phone"
it has a "High Definition" screen
"Multitouch" (iPhone will going to be very pest)
and "Touchless" interface capable of detecting and processing complex 3D gesture in real time
santu, 05 Dec 2008no big difference between n95 and this phone..waste to buy...its still hanging with 5megapixel... moreWho's we? Speak for yourself mister. Some people who understands the role of megapixels would be happy with 5 or even 3.15 megapixels on their phones. If you like blowing up pictures in poster sizes, then use a digital camera, not an 8 or 10 megapixel camera phone, lol.
I have a strong feeling that this is going to be a great phone. I'm considering getting this one.
no big difference between n95 and this phone..waste to buy...its still hanging with 5megapixel camera...launch 10 megapixel then we vl buy
I lov nokia & symbian os, they allow u to arrange ur phone the u like. Now they have come up with a 32GB memory wizard. But I love my N95 8G & it's n-gage games.
yousef, 05 Dec 2008this is nokia iphoneYeah this kind of calculation is not fer, you shall not compare iphone with this nokia N97 or 5800, because the iphone first of all is a low phone profile..., no copy and paste, no front camera for conversation, the camera is bad quality and no posible software control and cant record video at all, bluetooth is just hanging with it, cant do a damn thing, cant transfer files with friends, and only dedicated web places you are able to pickup software, and it's slow surfing thing, no SMS reply, No multimedia mesages service, an I guess for aple was better to give a joystick to iphone and give to kids to play nintendo games with it, that's all!
It would bee fer you guys, you should better compare iphone with this cheapest older phones that they qualify with the same results, of course some of them even they are old, they are capable sending/receiving MMS, and operational bluetooth..., they'll win maybe!
For now Nokia N97 and nokia 5800 are super mobile computer, with all possibilities, send end receive, upload and download files thru bluetouth or network wi-fi or any connection, cameras in front for conferencing or 3.2/5MP for taking grate pictures or VIDEO DVD cuality, and wot more do you want to hear about it...., Multimedia Mobile Computer on Pocket!
BY the time this gets released .. Other brands will have better specs phones ...
This is whats bad about nokia .. they release date is too late!
Ahmet, 05 Dec 2008Android needs to be put on a phone like this, then it's untouchable.You got to bee kidding..., full!
Wot makes you think, why the nokia company bay the symbians..., just to make the rest of companies lose, because nokia was always innovative and give to costumers wot they need, and they don't want other companies mix up on their business, like aple did bring a silly iphone device with flooding animations to full costumers, and rob their maney for device that cant do much for them, rather than a front screen silly animations!
the best of the best, just missing xenon flash :(
there is no perfect cel right now...
