Nokia N97 – Review (Price in India, Full specification, Pictures and Video)

Views: 1466


At last, we got our hands on this much-awaited device. And with one touch, we were N97nd! It is by far the best touchscreen device from Nokia but here’s serious advice... Without GPRS, most of its features are completely worthless. With GPRS, you can download music and games, browse the WWW, check e-mail and also IM, all from its nice and bright 3.5” home.

The one feature that got us hooked was the FM transmitter. Now no Bluetooth or cables are needed to enjoy the music stored on its 32 GB card. Just match the frequency of your device and the car stereo and run your own show, sans the drone of that annoying RJ. Other impressive features include its 5 meg camera and its battery life that lasts for almost two full days! Moving on to the disappointments... The curse of the hangman persists with the N series. Constant hanging and auto-restart, sometimes in the middle of calls jolt us out of our ‘so perfect phone’ stupor. And last, the hefty price tag... It’s way too expensive!

Price: Rs 36,119
