Nokia has unveiled its new flagship model – the Nokia N97. The N97 is the next multimedia handset that boasts a large 3.5-inch touchscreen display, 32GB built in memory, QWERTY sliding keyboard, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, 5MP Carl Zeiss camera module and a 3.5mm headphone plug. Nokia has also put a far-better-than-iPhone 5MP camera into the mixer, with Carl Zeiss lens and ‘DVD quality’ video capture.
The Nokia N97 supports up to 48 GB of storage, including 32 GB of on-board memory, expandable with a 16 GB microSD card for music, media and more. This is complemented by excellent music capabilities, full support for the Nokia Music Store and continuous playback time of up to 1.5 days. The Nokia N97 also has a 5-Megapixel camera with high-quality Carl Zeiss optics, 16:9 and DVD quality video capture, and support for services like Share on Ovi for immediate sharing over HSDPA and WLAN.
The Nokia N97 is expected to begin shipping in the first half of 2009 at an estimated retail price of EUR 550 before taxes or subsidies.
