lol. IMO, N97 only failed because of its hardware and maybe, software. come to think of it, and in short terms, N97 is a real failure! haha!

Yes, there are some things that should have been done correct right out the gate with the n97. But a COMPLETE failure? No. Not only did the OTA updates bring the phone where it should be, the n97 mini capatilized on that. Besides, the handset did make all sales figures projected for it, so it cant be a complete failure. And with Nokia learning from this, future handsets will be phenominal. No wonder Nokia is still #1.

I agree. the N97 is heluvah strong too! I've had mine over a year & worked underneath cars and dropped it from dizzy hieghts. It's still the leading phone for a diesel mechanic/Ops manager/trucking through 5 southern African countries kind of dude. A laptop that makes calls.
