Nokia N97

A more up to date news … Nokia announced its new flagship phone today, the Nokia N97.

Here’s a quote from Jonas Geust, Vice President, heading Nokia Nseries., taken from the press release;

“From the desktop to the laptop and now to your pocket, the Nokia N97 is the most powerful, multi-sensory mobile computer in existence,”

“Together with the Ovi services announced today, the Nokia N97 mobile computer adjusts to the world around us, helping stay connected to the people and things that matter most. With the Nokia N97, Nseries leads the charge in helping to transform the Internet into your Internet”.

It looks more like an E90 sibling if you ask me. I think this is the first full QWERTY keyboard N-Series mobile phone by Nokia. Looks stunning, but at EUR 550 (around RM 2,600.00) , not everybody would want to buy one.

From the photo, I really like the clean facade, of the phone which makes it look a better when the keyboard is pushed out. Unlike the rumoured E75, the screen on this one is smack center and lays perfectly semetrical. The keyboard looks funny though, only three rows. Looks pretty cramped to me. Maybe, one can get accustomed to the keyboard after a few hours using the phone.

The specifications as I pulled out from CrunchGear

  • Size: 117.2 x 55.3 x 15.9 mm* *18.25 mm at camera area
  • Weight: Approx. 150 g
  • Memory: Up to 48GB (32 GB on-board memory, plus 16GB expansion via microSD memory card slot)
  • Display: 3.5 inch TFT with up to 16 million colors nHD 16:9 widescreen (640×360 pixels)
  • Talk time: Up to 320 min (3G), 400 min (GSM)
  • Standby time: Up to 400 hrs (3G), 430 hrs (GSM)
  • Video playback: Up to 4.5 hours (offline mode)
  • Music playback: Up to 37 hours (offline mode)
  • Image capture: Up to 5 megapixels (2584 x 1938) JPEG/EXIF (16.7 million/24-bit color)

There’s no mention about the processor and the processor performance, though, and I guess the phone would run on Symbian S60.

CrunchGear has some interestings photos of the E97. I post a couple of shots here:
