Nokia announces N97 touch phone
Yesterday, we were wondering what Nokia will announce during its annual Nokia World event. Well, we are happy – it is the new flagship model, the N97. It seems that Nokia will not join the cameraphones battle for now, as the new model features a modest 5MP camera instead of 8-megapixel one. However, Nokia claim that thanks to its Carl Zeiss lens and the DVD-quality video, it is a camera of superb quality. N97 is the second S60 smartphone with touch sensitive display. It is 3.5” in diagonal with ratio of 16:9 (widescreen), 640x360 pixels resolution, 16 million colors and adds haptic feedback (vibration when pressing). Stressing on communication and Internet, the new handset is a side-slider that features a QWERTY keyboard for fast text input.  Other features include HSDPA, Wi-Fi, AGPS and 32GB of internal memory plus microSD slot for up to 16GB of additional memory. The N97 is expected to ship in the first half of 2009 at a price of about EUR 550 (US $700) before taxes.
