fyi I bought an N97 today at the NYC store and it does come with 3 games; Spore by EA, Brain Challenge vol 2, and Guitar Rock Tour. No N-Gage pre-installed though.
I generally agree with the review. Good balance of features, but some features had to be on par with the other competing top of the line units (camera, video, touch). Nonetheless I am probably getting the phone at some point. I feel it has what I require and I have enough incentive to get it.
Does it retain CID name in call log?
N95 does not. It displays name when call is coming in, but if you missed call you have no way to see name in call log. Was it fixed?
why has this not being blessed with 8mp
yes small sensor.. blah blah blah
but 8mp like the one in N86 is just slick
Andrew Tan, 17 Jun 2009Then you told me how many percent increase in Samsung sales? and how many percent Nokia sales ... moreThe 32GB internal memory is one fourth of the N97's production price - believe it or not!

I won't wait it drop and buy, it is not what I want. and I never fight with you, I just point out this phone is failure with reason, but what have you ever said? you said I dummed, I sarcasm and so on and keep pointing out how good how great this phone but actually it ain't that great as you thought.

E72 touch up from E71 and so on. Too many touch up!
and Nokia put on Carl Zeiss not means other brand lens is garbage.

Don;t worry though, nokia is expected to have atleast 8mp camera with ootical zoom on thier n98. i wish the best to nokia...
Andrew Tan, 17 Jun 2009Then you told me how many percent increase in Samsung sales? and how many percent Nokia sales ... morethe updates are actually helping out the 5800 and and making the OS and touch response much better
Andrew Tan, 17 Jun 2009Then you told me how many percent increase in Samsung sales? and how many percent Nokia sales ... morelisten man, i dont mean to be an a**... all im saying is if you dont like wat nokia has to offer, then go to another brand. I've used all brands of phones, and there's just something about nokia that makes me feel so satisfied. I will stick by nokia especially for this phone becuase it has everything i want and need. If you have a problem with the price, then wait until the price drops (it will when n98 specs are released in 4th quarter)... all phones have thier own pros and cons, it all depends on what you can and can't live without. i'm willing to pay $150 extra for a keyboard... i hate text messaging on alphanumeric keypads, and especially touch screens.
all i have to say is, good luck with finding a phone that makes you happy (i hope you find one)... otherwise wait until somthing that you like is released... until then, PEACE...

At the moment, the greatest camera phone is still Samsung Innov8, it is agreed in every reviewer site.
N82 is huge success, ya correct, sorry for miss out this.
I never hate Nokia, I never hate any brand, what the point? but I also won't blindly following any brand, what the point as well? Which brand out better stuff and that the brand phone I will considered if plan on changing.

Nokia is off course still top ... but why their sales drop 90% in 1st quarter. (if not because of huge selling of 5800XM, they even worst)
SE is even worst because they out nothing same as Nokia, but they notice it and they change it.
I know Blackberry came to India, as I told they just slowly came to Asian. But it is a wide success? Absolutely not.
Memory is kinda cheap, that 32GB won't add much. They is not a huge different between iPhone 16GB vs 32GB | Samsung Omnia 8GB vs 16GB.

Andrew Tan, 17 Jun 2009The last success Nokia done in high-end market is Nokia N95 8GB, after this they out nothing! ... moren96 is a failure, i admit to that... but then so is the sony x1. that phone lacked in sales so muchhh its not funny. so dont hate on nokia caus they messed up a couple of phones. Look at all the improvements they made... look at the battery life, the build quality, the camera quality, the looks everything is improved. and by the way, after the n95 8gb, the n82 was a HUGE seller. the n82 was amazing, the n96 is amazing for its camera so dont say they haven't come out with anything. the n96 has been rated the BEST camera on ANY phone yet... lets see if samsung or se can compete with that.

Balckberry was released in india...so it will very soon be a sucess in other parts of the world. the satio has NOTHING except a decent camera. The n97 has so many things that the satio doesnt.. the satio is also one of the THICKEST touch screen phones out. and regardless, s.e's sales aren't even close to nokias. no matter wat you say, the satio;s sales will be far more disappointing than the n97's. I dont know how much phones sell for in asia, but in north america, the n97 is very fairly priced compared to other phones. (n97 for $725 vs. sony ericsson x1 $850+...HTC touch pro 2 $700...)...the n97 has things like carl ziess lens where as satio has a garbage lens... n97 has fm transmitter, radio with rds, 1500 mA battery, hinge design, 32 gb memory.. these things all adds to cost
