(more pictures to come – need more connection speed!)
Today Nokia announced the Nokia N97, the new flagship of the Nseries line.Â The N97 brings a QWERTY keyboard to Nseries for the first time as well as continuing the touch UI (S60 5th Edition) introduced in the 5800 Express Music.Â The home screen is all new and what I can only describe as a widget-top, giving you instant access to content that matters to you in your connected life.
There’s a clear emphasis on context which enables you to get both geographically and time sensitive information delivered at a glance.Â The N97’s homescreen will be customizable to allow both Nokia and 3rd party developers to activate WRT (Web Runtime) widgets without having to launch an application.Â Â Essentially live feeds at a glance.Â For the connected the social networking enthusiast, this will be a must have device.
The keyboard slides and tilts from the longer side revealing a very comfortable raised typing surface.Â While I only had a limited time to type around it seemed very easy to get used to and absolutely like something on which I could do ton of messaging.Â It’s great to see QWERTY FINALLY on an Nseries!Â Nokia has typically made you choose between E and N series for a device that does what you want most of the time and with the N97 there’s finally a single unit that can handle everything.
The new homescreen is an awesome way to provide direct access to information within an instant.Â During our briefing with Nokia we learned that they consider the N97 a new category of device and one that is more a mobile computer than the prior generation of multimedia computers.Â The N97 offers a massive amount of functionality in a very reasonably sized package.Â The screen is 640×360 and is just gorgeous.Â Contrast was excellent and colors (all 16 Million of them) seemed quite vibrant!Â You can customize every part of the homescreen which is remarkably something that we’ve not had previously in S60 devices.Â You can add, remove or just slide any of the widgets around to make things just how you like them.Â When you rotate the device between portrait and landscape modes, things nicely re-align.
On first glance the N97 compares to the 5800 in size and seems like it’s older brother … until you slide the keyboard out and realize you’ve got an altogether new breed in hand.Â While it’s not a small device, the N97 feels great in your hand and can easily be used while walking without needing two hands in most cases.Â The virtual keyboards (numbers and T9) were clear and the softkeys seemed eas to access for quick data entry.Â Of course for larger text needs a quick flip and you’ve got a real keyboard at your disposal.Â Weight (Approx. 150 g) felt semi-comparable to the E71 and in the front pocket of my jeans it was not in any way uncomfortable.
There’s much more to this device than I can possibly do justice in an initial post.Â When this goes live I’ll be listening to the keynotes and will report back after further Q&A.

Looking forward to more coverage. This looks like an awesome device. Would this replace the N8XX tablet series?
tough call … S60 vs Maemo … it's VERY sweet though
Are you going to have a chance to lay your hands on a demo at some
point and do a video review?
had a very brief hands on last night … that's my hand in the picture above
Yes, but I am talking about the very fine video reviews you do from time to time (like the one which convinced me to get my E71). The good stuff!
would love to, but we won't have the real deal for a while

I would love to have sony cell phone.
i think the sound quality is much better than that of nokia.
Amazing, beautiful looking gadget, Iam already in love with this. I am sure this one will rule out the need for having any other gadget.
before 96 n95 hits the market,then n96 gives a osaum touch ,now here is ……. i dont have words for this phone till yet$$$$$$$
I am already in love with this gadget. I am sure this one will rule out the need for having any other gadget.Yes, but I am talking about the very fine video reviews you do from time to time (like the one which convinced me to get my E71). The good stuff!
Amazing Gadget ..This looks cool …….Lot of things to explore with this device ……..
first n95 8gb model,then it’s 16gb version ,after that n96 ,now this n97 ,can anybody listen me at nokia manufacturers what are you doing just making fast & fast & fast phone productions
Very attractive, your narration of its features has added to this attraction. It would a great and a prized possession to own. I am sure in the next one year there wont be a better device that comes up.
Good blog …it is really helpful. I would want to thank the author for writing this article.
I really appericiate your ideas & i am totally with it.
I would reccomand this to you, these are very helpful.very interisting, ididn’t know about it, great site, knowledge increasing.
i currently have n96, I hope this new one has better capabilities than n96 as you may know the n96 has lower cpu than n95 which causes slow down during use on the phone
First off, I really can't wait for the Nokia N97 but!!
Does anybody know when it will be released in Australia?
I have been looking everywhere for the release date for AUS, but I cannot find anything.
I'm hoping somebody knows.. I've been on the Aus Nokia website but that doesn't say; it
only says coming soon.. So does anybody know the actual release date for the Aussies?
I came across a website for the Nokia N97 owners http://www.NokiaN97Forum.com let's help each other on this great phone.
Ya I am Having the same Nokia N97 Mobile.I was Bought It Before A Month.Nice Mobile.When I was Bought it i was <A
HREF=”http://www.mobileunlocksolutions.com/”>Unlocked the Mobile.Now I am Using the Mobile In the Verizon US..Before that
i was In the Verizon US.
I would like to <a href=” http://www.gogetessays.com“>buy essay writing or the custom written essays about Salto Chico. A kind of supreme idea! Thank you for this!
N97 is an awesome Cell Phone. I love the set.
I hold no blind loyalty to N97, nor did I to my 9210, 9300, or 9500.
But while I have a N97 in my pocket I'll remain true to the Brotherhood.
My N97 is my best friend.
My relationship is currently on hold while I accustom myself to everything that the N97 can offer me. So far, I haven't put it down.
I'm getting married in 7 days and hope to have grown up by then. If not, my N97 will be with me at the top table and I'll mention him in my Wedding Speech.
Love is such a fickle thing.
See you around http://www.nokian97forum.com
I am sure this one will rule out the need for having any other gadget
I Like e71 more than n97. N-series n97 is not the king of touch screen, Iphone is much better than N97. The design is not awesome its just Ok.
