Nokia N97: The next level of Mobile Computing

I love the Nokia N97 so much that I bought a second one for the girlfriend. If you think that IPhone or Blackberry is better, then you need to open your little eyes and check this device out. It's superior to all other phone out there, and it costs less than most BMW options that come with your car

It has a resistive touch screen, so you can touch the screen even if you are wearing gloves or using your fingernail. With Iphone's capactive touch screen, you must use your finger tip, which is a pain in the ass when typing. Honestly, the Iphone is a neat novelty item to have for funs and giggles, but if you want an actual phone that you can depend on (i.e. if you're stranded in the middle of nowhere), a bullet-proof Nokia phone is the only thing you want with you by your side.

^ what?! it's a company from finland o_O Do companies from finland support those type of activities?

OP - I was about to get it, but the only difference between my phone and your phone is the touch screen, and you have S60V4/5

N95 here w/ my S60v3...i'm happy with it until the N98, that'll be the next upgrade...8MP camera ftw

That looks nice, but did you hear about the guy who was saved by his Blackberry?

if you think that a Symbian device is better than an iPhone running OS X you need to open YOUR little eyes.

That's what I thought too, but look what I ended up with. I got rid of the IPhone pretty quickly. The weak camera and inability to multitask is a real turn off for most people. To each their own.

I have an N95 too, the phone is sweet. Possibly the best non-touch phone in the world, and I've used lots of different phones from different brands. No worries, definitely wait for the N98!!!

Yup, you can't beat OS X.

The speed of the 3GS + Push Notifications has truly made me forget about wanting multitasking. The 3GS is the best phone on the market by far.
