Enterprise Mobility: Nokia N97 Smartphone Looks to Challenge iPhone 3G S, Palm Pre
Billed by Nokia as "the world's most advanced mobile computer," the N97 bundles a number of smartphone advances into one compact package, including a touch-screen, a slide-out keyboard, massive amounts of memory capable of performing tasks from e-mail to games, and a video camera. The device is Nokia's first to include a personalized home screen, where users can customize which widgets are displayed whenever they turn on their phone. These widgets, accessible through Nokia's Ovi Store, include not only social-networking apps such as Facebook and newswire services such as Associated Press and Bloomberg, but also productivity tools and games. At a recent show in New York City, eWEEK took a detailed look at the Nokia N97 smartphone and offers this look at the new, $699 mobile device.
