About Nokia N97

The Nokia N97 smartphone combines a touch screen with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. It has impressive hardware, including a 5-megapixel camera with flash, GPS, Wi-Fi and an FM transmitter as well as customisable home screen widgets and touch-screen user interface.

The flip-up tilt screen is used well in the N97. The screen display’s angle is great for playing multimedia. Also noteworthy, this screen is one of the most responsive touch screens around, though unlike the Apple iPhone 3GS you do need to use a stylus on occasion. Nokia  includes the stylus (plastic pointer) in their sales package, although using your fingers alone can activate almost all of the N97’s functions and features.
