Nokia N97 user goes iPhone for a dayiPhone vs Nokia N97

Today I decided to switch phones with my friend and try the iPhone 3G for a day, while he went with my Nokia N97 for a change. Although this is not the first time I have used an iPhone, nor his first time using a Nokia S60 device I though there are some things worth mentioning from this one day experience. The things I mostly use on my mobile phone are email, browsing pages, instant messaging and document viewing. I did not mention calling and SMS since those are some of the things you could be doing even with a Nokia 1100 and practically every phone available today.

Nokia N97 hands on reviewNokia N97 front open keyboard

Today we got our hand on a brand new Nokia N97 Black device, the phone every S60 geek wants to have in his collection. Although the Black version of the N97 has been referred to as the black sheep (by users favoring the Apple look alike design of the white version of this phone), we were very surprised to find out that this time Nokia have outdone themselves.

The black Nokia N97 looks really amazing in our hand, although not a business phone the polished metallic parts of the phone remind us of the ESeries and give the phone a more serious look. It is a phone that catches the eye for sure, but not only. Although in this review we will not speak about the software part of the phone, we must mention that that is a story for itself. We had a little time to try out the phone after the photo shoot and we will be using it as our primary test phone from now and WOW not only that this phone is super fast, the new S60 5th edition OS is enabling the hardware to really shine.
