Nokia N97 NAM reaching North America on June 2nd?
This North American version of Nokia's new flagship phone, the N97 NAM, could be hitting the Continent as soon as June 2nd according to a story heard by the guys at The Nokia Blog. The story goes that the Finnish manufacturer has told one of its major North American distributors to expect to receive the handset on June 2nd. Retail pricing is expected at $699 for the touchscreen device that is equipped with a hefty 3.5 inch screen, 5MP camera, Wi-Fi, and will run the Symbian S60 5th edition which is the same OS you'll find on the 5800 XpressMusic. The N97 NAM apparently adds another high-end device to the suddenly crowded North American smartphone market.

This phone looks really nice and I do expect it to have great reviews but you guys are to excited lmao....the only phone that im waiting to piss on is the iphone cause thats the number 1 phone def not the storm. You know sometimes i dont understand more thing im def not a fanboy of verizon just to add that in and i dislike the storm and the iphone equally. But I will say after seeing both in my opinion nothing right now today can beat the iphone.

yeah I know I hope it will take a piss on the iphone as well just as verizon user for the time being thats the first phone on my mind and as far as you saying that nothing can beat the iphone for right now the iphone is totally played out now even though the n97 as well as the pre and just about every other iphone killers design concept came from the iphone I would have to say that even the design of the iphone is played out the new iphone killers of right now that are getting ready to be released have taken a concept from the iphone but they have taken it and ran to another planet and I think that is very interesting it seems to me that the whole iphone histeria that still exists almost a whole two years after the first one was released is more of its a cool thing to say I have the iphone just as it was to have the motorola razor when that was the hot thing to have and mind you that there have been many advances technically look where motorla and the razor are now nowhere to be found and they tried and held onto the market the same way that apple is doing right now and someone should let apple know its not going to last you can not keep bringing the same device out over and over again slapping a new name on it and saying hey this is the newset most best thing on earth it is a fad

Very well said Jeff I like you outlook...I know the Iphone is old and all but until we actually see these new phones we cant speak on them. I will say that im very much anticipating the palm pre it looks like it has taken things from the iphone and made it a very different phone. I also think the n97 is going to be a great phone as well considering nokia in my opinion has had the least amount of problems of any other name ive seen. But once again very well said

Hopefully AT&T and T-Mobile, but only if they don't restrict anything. The last thing I want is a repeat of the Nokia E61 which got WiFi taken away and then sold through AT&T as the E62. Not that I care honestly, cuz I've never purchased carrier branded phones. I've already pre-ordered my unlocked N97, and I'm excited to get it soon. And if this rumor proves through, then June will be a good month for me!
