Last Friday during the New York Nokia Users Meetup, I played with a Nokia N97 prototype. I’m now giving you my initial thoughts about the device. It’s nowhere near production because it kept crashing. Since the hardware is pretty much what we’ll see when it comes out, this preview will be based on that.
There is a jar next to my Mac, so far with 62 euros, waiting for Nokia to grab it from me somewhere around April. I’m confident that I’ll raise the money for the Nokia N97 – but is Nokia confident that it will be able to separate me from my 550 EUR?
My recent discovery is the Posterous service that lets you quickly blog with photos or videos by using email on the phone. I’ve been enjoying using the Nokia E71 with Posterous for the past couple of days. The E71′s camera isn’t great, but you can use it to quickly share images on the blog posts. However, I can think of one other device that will be more suitable for this service.
There are two phones that I use regularly but leave the house with only one that I think will serve me most for the day. They are the Nokia N85 and the Nokia E71. I can’t get rid of one because none of the two devices have everything that I want in a phone. If Nokia doesn’t mess up the Nokia N97, it will be the answer to my problem.
Remember when the Nokia N93 revolutionized the mobile world by bringing near DVD video recording quality to a phone? Soon afterwards, most Nseries devices carried over the 640×480 resolution and 30 frames per second recording as a standard feature. Now that Youtube is “HD”, video bloggers will get curious with compact High-Def camcorders. Nokia needs to take advantage of this by bringing out an HD video phone.
The Nokia N97 Widget Competition is now live! You have until February 27th, 2009 to design a widget you want to appear on the Nokia N97. The winning widget designer will receive a Nokia N97 ahead of the public release, pre-installed with their homescreen widget. Of course, I already submitted mine!
We’re not expecting the Nokia N97 until May, but Eldar from Mobile Review already comes out with the Nokia N97 review! It should be called a preview since the device is an early prototype, but who cares? I know I’m not the only one excited about this Qwerty-toting touch device from Nokia.
