Live photos of the Nokia N97






Though the Nokia N97 at CES was still a prototype, the hardware isn’t very impressive. The device is definitely well spec’d with 32GB of built-in memory, 3.5-inch touchscreen, GPS, HSDPA, and 5-megapixel camera, but if you don’t buy into the whole "it’s what’s on the inside that counts" belief, then you’re obviously not a Sony fan (yes, the Vaio P is all I can think about!) and you probably won’t be counting down the days until the N97 is released.

I’m a big fan of the slide-and-tilt design, too, so there’s just something about the N97’s look that doesn’t work for me. Maybe it just looks better on screen and in white/silver.

  • Nokia’s N Series aren’t built to a high standard of quality like its E Series devices, they’re hard plastic casings that are designed to take a lot of abuse.

    The X1 is in a completely different league, as are most HTC phones. But then again, I doubt if you could kick them around as I did with my N82.

    The most exciting things, for me, about the N97, are the OS and that large screen. There are stuff on S60 that you can’t just do on any other smartphone platform.

    One great example is creating, accessing and streaming from and to Windows SMB Shares on the phone and on your home network. Also, I just haven’t seen anything like Nokia’s Podcasting app on Windows Mobile or the iPhone.

    After seeing both the X1 and the N97 here at CES, there is no comparison – the X1 is a much better built device. But I do like the sturdy slide and tilt hinge on the N97…

    I hate to say it, but the N97 is dumpy looking and reminds me of the G1 because of its lack of style. Mind you, that’s not enough reason for me not to consider it.

    /Just saw the picture of it in white/silver. Much better.
