Nokia N97

Whilst Nokia may be coming a bit late to the touchscreen smartphone party, the Nokia N97 will give its competition some cause for concern, with Nokia billing it as "the world's most advanced mobile computer". Built with the use of your favourite internet apps such as Facebook in mind, the phone has a 3.5 inch touchscreen with 16:9 aspect ratio, and boasts a proper slide-out Qwerty keyboard, which will no doubt enhance the usability of the device. Naturally the phone is stacked with all the latest mobile communications standards, such as HSDPA mobile broadband, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3G and Bluetooth, but Nokia has also pleased the photographers by the addition of a 5 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and dual LED flash to make the N97 a capable camera phone.

Nokia has recently launched the Ovi Store, its answer to Apple's App Store, and is hoping that the N97 will be embraced by third party developers. One advantage the N97 has over the iPhone is that it is Flash Lite 3.0 enabled, and can therefore play Flash videos. The N97 runs the Symbian S60 smartphone operating system and supports mobile e-mail and instant messaging. The Nokia N97 looks like it should be a very capable smartphone but it will undoubtedly face stiff competition from the likes of Apple, HTC and Blackberry, especially with the rumoured launch of a new iPhone this summer.
