Nokia N97 Here Soon

Nokia new mini mobile solution comes of age

Nokia’s N97 mobile computer comes with a tilting 3.5-inch touch display, Qwerty keyboard and a fully customisable home screen.

The unit is said to be the company’s first device to feature a personalisable home screen, which can be customised with a range of widgets that bring live information directly to the device. These widgets include social networking destinations like Facebook and Hi5, news services like the Associated Press, Bloomberg and Reuters, as well as shopping and weather information.

The Nokia N97 is the first device to ship with the Ovi Store, which offers access to applications, games, videos, podcasts, productivity tools, web and location-based services. Ovi Store has paid and free content from a range of global and local content providers and developers, including Paramount Pictures, Facebook and Qik, as well as a selection of Twitter applications.

People can improve and refresh the unit with new features, functions and fixes so they can do even more with the device.

It also has direct access to a catalogue of music in the Nokia Music Store. With multiple high-speed connectivity options and 32GB of storage (up to 48GB using a microSD card) it is possible to directly download and store tens of thousands of songs on the handset.

High-quality images and video clips at 30 frames per second (fps) can be captured using the five megapixel camera with integrated Carl Zeiss optics. Images can also be geo-tagged to specific locations and shared instantly with friends or uploaded online via Ovi Share, Twitter or Flickr.
