Nokia recently unveiled the much awaited CellPhone. Ya I am talking about Nokia N97 having a large touchscreen which I feel will bolster its smartphone offering.It is claimed to be the world's most advanced mobile or even the world's most advanced personal computer. Nokia is hoping to Apple a very stiff competition with this product. Also N97 is planning to directly hit Sony Ericsson's X1 and HTC's TouchPro both of which uses MS Windows software.
Lets see some of the features of Nokia N97:
It has a QWERTY keyword along with a 3.5 inch touchscreen. The desktop of this smartphone can be customized as per your needs and support widgets. Also, Nokia N97 has a 16:9 aspect ratio for the wide touchscreen and also has a resolution of 640 X 360 pixels. If you are looking to compare the dimentions of this phone to Apple's IPhone, it is slightly more thicker than IPhone, a rough estimate is 30% more thicker.
The most fascinating feature of Nokia N97 is that it comes with a 32GB internal memory with support for microSD in case you want 16 more GBs, that makes overall support of whopping 48GBs. Like Nokia N95, it also supports a 5 Mega Pixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens and a dual LED Flash. It also supports handwriting recognition and also Nokia's N-Gage gaming system. It also has a 3.5MM headset jack along with a microUSP port which can be used for charging up the phone as well as for syncing. It also has a 1500 mAh battery. As the tradition goes, the OS of this phone is S60 which is the latest version of Nokia's Symbian Operating System.
Nokia is also claiming that this Phone has an inbuilt browser which even supports Flash and Flash videos. I just hope they arent exxagerating. You may think of it as a direct attack on Apple's IPhone which is lacking Flash support. Bill Plummer, the Vice President said at a prelaunch event in New York that Nokia N97 supports real Internet browsing which makes it stand ahead of others. Amazingly, they are also claiming that this phone can play upto 37 hours of nonstop audio, 4.5 hours of Video and has 16.5 days of standby time.
Nokia N97 supports 3G connectivity just like Apple's IPhone along with a built in compass and GPS. Other conenctivity options includes: USB port, Bluetooth, WIFI connectivity and tri-band HSDPA. N97 also uses a new feature called as S0-Lo(Social Location). It means on using the GPS receiver along with integreated compass, this phone can always track your exact location and moreover it can broadcast this information to your authoried relatives or even friends.
Another smart featrue of Nokia N97 which makes it unique is that it supports widgets. Comprehensive Reviews have shown that these widgets appear like icons of square and rectangular size and also provides shortcuts to frequent contacts, audio player, calendar, text messages etc. There is also a provision to drag these shortcuts anywhere as per users choice.
Now coming to the release, Nokia is planning to sel this product somewhere in the first quarter of 2009 for some 699$. Thats a great amount. Just for your information, let me tell you that Nokia has sold more than 10 Million N95 till date.
