leave a comment »

Nokia, like all strong companies, continues to push forward inspite of the current economic situation and its own lower forecast of mobile market. It is working on the next generation of its flagship N-series phone, the N97 which is slated to be launched in the first half of 2009. Here is an in-depth review of the N97 pre-production model from Mobile Review in which they have not only compared it to various competitors like iPhone, Xperia, HTC Touch Pro, but also put it through its pace having tested the various features of the phone and have tons of pics. Speaking of features, here are some key ones:

  • 117.2×55.3×15.9 mm QWERTY slider with tilt stand for screen
  • 150 grams
  • white and dark-brown colors
  • two cameras with the primary camera being a 5 Mpxl standard shooter
  • Over 128 MB RAM with 70MB available for apps
  • microSD slot with no limit on card capacity
  • 3.5 inch diagonal, 16:9 aspect ratio, 16 million colors and 640×360-pixel resolution (43×78 mm)
  • micro-USB, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi
  • 369 MHz ARM11 CPU

While a lot of these features are standard on other handsets and priced competitively, the N97 is expected to come with a hefty price tag. The reason for this is simple. Nokia is positioning this device as the first device to be very tightly integrated into the various services out of the box. This is a new paradigm and also Nokia’s first product based on its strategic focus to the service-driven concept across its entire portfolio.
