    Am trying to squeeze Voda for one. They offered me a silly deal, and then went back on it, so I'm playing with them now. They call me every day or so to get me to upgrade.

    I read through a review of it at The Register yesterday, and it looks like it's a bit gash. Linky's ]here, if you're interested. Summary of it is that it's expensive, the keyboard's crap, the GUI is hideous, it's got loads of bugs, and you still only get about a day's life out the battery. It doesn't make me regret the 2yr contract I have my X1 on, that's for sure.

    and has lots of memory lol. 32gb on board.. plus 16gb of you get a card
    photos aint bad

    im looking to get either that or the new samsung.

    currently have the xda orbit... never let me know.. tomtom too!

    played with the n97 yesterday in nokia and played with the iphone 3gs - i think if you want novelty, go for the 3gs, it'll entertian you for hours, the n97 I was VERY impressed with. you've got normal t9 predictive text to ue it like a normal phone, OR the QWERTY, OR handwriting with a stylus - and the hand writing recognition can be trained to know how YOU write. it's very clever. The internet is 3.5G so faster than the 3g S iphone and it looks very pretty. The screen ISN'T as responsive as the iphone BUT I preferred having to actually tap on the screen to make it do something because that way you're not accidentally selecting something you don't want.

    I'd have the n97.

    anyone seen any good covers/cases for n97?

    hi. I'm planning on getting one of these baby's soon. Anyone know if anyone has heard of the Android operating system being put on this to make it dual boot-able? It's been done with other nokias. I realise it might be a bit early for this one yet, but ya never know, someone might have done it already.

    Very interested in this phone and apparantly T-mobile will have the price release later today.

    i got one on the 20th, worked well for 2 days and has now crashed completely on me...its pretty much just a clock at the moment. I am waiting to return it though as there is a software update release between today and friday that should fix the majority of the issues.

    I want to keep it as it is a great piece of kit when it works.

    -Loads of memory
    -Crisp Screen and Large size
    -Favourite Contacts can be added to main screen.
    -Web Browsing is a joy to use
    -The widgets are great. Bbc i player, facebook etc
    -Some really great features, Message reader is hilarious
