Nokia N97 Specifications & Review Thursday, Jan 1 2009 

Nokia’s True iPhone Killer real touch screen magic by nokia better then 5800 & N96

So, guess what Nokia came up with as a follow up for their Nokia 5800 XpressMusic Touchscreen phone? The Nokia N97, a Google G1 phone look-alike that sports a 3.5 inch touchscreen and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.

Design

The Nokia N97 looks like a cross between a lot of different phones from the iPhone to the Google G1 Phone to the AT&T Tilt (HTC TyTN II). Up front, the Nokia N97’s 3.5 inch screen dominates the whole front of the phone except for the little button on the bottom left side corner which serves as the shortcut key to the N series multimedia applications. The call and end buttons are touch sensitive like ROKR E8. On the top of the Nokia N97 is the 3.5mm headphone jack and the power button. The Nokia N97 is just a tad bit larger and thicker than the iPhone and when you slide out the QWERTY keypad, you’re reminded of the HTC TyTN II with it’s angled screen. The Nokia N97 feels solid enough to hold though it just feels a bit too large especially if you have small hands. The QWERTY keypad is evenly spaced and you won’t have trouble typing nor would you have to worry about pressing two buttons at a time. The buttons are very minimal compared with other QWERTY keypads from HTC or Blackberry. I guess this is to make room for the directional pad on the left side. The sliding mechanism feels solid enough though I’m a bit worried about the hinge that connects the screen and the keypad since it looks thin and breakable.


Features and Performance 

The performance of the Nokia N97 is based purely on the demo version but I have to say I’m quite impressed. It looks like Nokia has fine tuned the Symbian OS to work well with touchscreen. On the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, you won’t get much of the swiping and flicking finger action but they’ve refined it so that you can get that much out of the Nokia N97. Also, compared with the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic demo version, the Nokia N97 interface is quite fast and responsive. You can barely see any hiccup on the accelerometer transition or when you’re navigating the Symbian OS. The user interface on the Nokia N97 is also quite new but is still very user-friendly. Like I said, it’s touch optimized and there are a lot of widgets you can play with. The built-in browser also looks promising though I wasn’t able to see if it supports YouTube desktop PC version. Scrolling through webpages isn’t as smooth and fluid as when you’re surfing the Safari Browser on the iPhone but the webpages renders quickly though I don’t know if that’s because the pages that the person demonstrating the phone is already saved and bookmarked on the phone’s memory.


The Nokia N97 also supports TV Out, WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth, GPS, FM radio, and a 5 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics. If the camera on the Nokia N97 is as good as that on the Nokia N95 then I’m sure that the Nokia N97 won’t have any problems when it comes to its camera software. The Nokia N97 runs on Quadband GSM networks and supports 3G/HSDPA.

It’s just too bad that Nokia decided to go with Resistive touchcreen instead of capacitive like that on the iPhone. I’m sure with a bit of development, they’ll be able to come up with a lot of good applications that can make use of capacitive touchscreen.

Outlook

Hmm, looks like Nokia got it right on their second try. I like the Nokia N97 better than their Nokia 5800 XpressMusic and I hope that they’ll be able to incorporate the user interface of the N97 on the 5800 XpressMusic though I highly doubt that since the Nokia N97 is aimed at the high end market while the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic borders on the midrange to high-end phone segment. From the looks of the demo version, the Nokia N97 looks promising enough. It’s fast and responsive. I don’t know what processor or RAM they’ve used on this device but I guess they were able to make use of the new Symbian OS. All in all, it looks like the iPhone, Google G1 Phone and the Blackberry Storm has a new competitor to watch out for. And knowing that there are a lot of Nokia fanatics, I think that the Nokia N97 will definitely take a large part of the smartphone market.

Nokia’s first S60 Touch device announced: Nokia 5800 XpressMusic (Tube) Friday, Oct 3 2008 

Nokia as expected today announced the first S60 smartphone with Touch Screen.

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic (and not XpressMedia) aka Tube is finally a reality.
In the same Nokia Remix event in London UK that Nokia announced Comes with Music service and Symbian S60 5th edition Nokia also announced the first device based on S60 5th edition and that is no other than the long rumored, long awaited Nokia Tube.

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic smartphone belongs in the midrange category but once you see the specs you will realize that Nokia sets very high standards for this product and what Nokia describes as midrange surely blows away most of its High-end competitors.

Some of Nokia’s 5800 specifications are as follow:

  • QuadBand GSM, and 3G (2100 for Europe and 850/1900 for USA)
  • 3.2 Megapixel camera with VGA Video Recording and Dual Led light
  • 3.2 inch nHD Touch Display 640X360
  • Tactical Feedback
  • TV-Out
  • WiFi b/g and Bluetooth
  • 150MB internal memory with SD slot and 8GB SD card in the box
  • GPS
  • S60 5th Edition
  • Full Internet Browser with Adobe Flash support
  • Video and Image editor right out of the box
  • Stylus and finger navigation

With such specification Nokia 5800 XpressMusic has nothing to be jelus of its high-end brothers. If you compare it with current high-end Nokia Symbian S60 smartphones such as the Nokia N95 and Nokia N85 the main differences you going to spot is the 3.2MegaPixel Camera instead for the 5Megapixel in N95 and N85. In fact 5800 offers many great additions that other Nokia High-end smartphones does not have such as the huge 16:9 touch display with nHD resolution. Such a screen makes 5800 the perfect Multimedia house especially for watching movies on the go and Browsing.

Nokia N95 Top 10 Tips Tuesday, Jun 17 2008 

1. In the Profiles settings of Nokia, there is an option: speak out the name to be called and choose open. Then go back to the laptop and press clock for seconds. It will succeed in calling wanted person via speaking out the name of his.

This function is realized by the software built in the cell phone itself that can recognize the voice calling. It seems that the function will take up much space.

However, it is not suggested to use the function, since its success rate is very low and always there is the problem like this: call jack but jane appears. If your voice is nearly same as that of computer, it will be good. You can do like this. In addition, you can use these two functions at the same time, 3D ringing and speaking out the name to be called, otherwise, the cell phone system will be halted.

2. If you didnt uninstall the program according to the common method, the cell phone may prompt you that the installation failed when you install the same program once again.

Maybe it is a detailed adjustment to the 3rd generation Nokia S60 for the security. Therefore, it is necessary to be careful for the installation and the uninstallation for the programs.

The important tips for the software installation of N95! Many friends can not run the program after installing *.Jar. Below is the solution:
a. When installing *.Jar program, you must use English to name *.Jar program file and it will work well. Some *Jar runs slowly, but do not worry. It will just take several seconds to run. (Generally less than 10 seconds)
b. If you want to manage *.Jar original installation file well, I suggest that you can create a folder, and put the English files *.Jar into it, as it is convenient to the classification.

By the way, the precious version of handay clock software is not compatible with N95 and when you open the clock function to work for you, then the multi-media button will become invalid. Note: higher than 4.02 version can be installed to work well for this function. As long as the normal JAR program for N95 can run, it just has the differences between full screen and the half screen.

3. N95 can look through the zoom of DOC documents. XLS files can be modified by the ranks of size, translation, the freezing window operation. PPT files can be displayed as the method of the full screen. As the version of FLASH players is a bit lower and larger flash will not be played. So will PPT, word, and excel.

4. If you want to install the theme of Nokia N95 into the cell phone as much as possible. If you install the theme into the card, it will recover automatically to the default theme when you restart the cell phone.

Two methods of the theme installation:

a. Copy the theme installation software (SIS or SISX format) into the cell phone card and use Y–browse to complete the installation.

b. Use card reader or data connection of the data cable to copy the decompressed theme folder into the cell phone card. The path is X:private10207114import (suppose X is the memory card).

The comparison between these two installation methods:
a. The process of the installation is very simple but it will auto create a file under the path: C:sysinstallsisregistry. For example,

C:sysinstallsisregistrya00000eb0000002_0000.ctl. This will take up too much space of hard drive C
b. The process of the installation is relatively complicate, however, there are not any installation steps and it wont create any file on hard drive C either. Of course it can not be installed on hard drive C Choose the style of theme installation correctly:
Usually, some people will install it at the first sight of the beautiful theme without considering it is fitable for you or not.
a. Do not install the different model theme, or it may be out of shape.
b. Install the unpractical theme because of the beautiful stand-by image and the letterform of its function list, information, selecting bars, the outside screen etc is not very clear at all.

c. The installed theme is too large and some themes will be up to 1MB. It will affect the speed poorly.
The deletion of the theme:
a. If you use method 1 to install the theme, you can delete it in program manager. If there are too many themes, it may not be resolved. You can use Y–browse to delete the file on C:preinstallAppscache.dat and try to delete on program manager. If still not, you can use the following method to deal with it.

b. If you use method 2 to install the theme, please remember the name of the theme and use card reader or data connection of data cable here: X:private10207114import to find the theme folder, and then delete the folder.

5. If you can not find or add the songs in the tab of music of N95, you may delete the original ones to update again.

6. As for looking through the different content, Nokia N95 provides two different network browser accesses.
The browser under the main function menu is used for the common WAP web page and the support of EDGE ensures the web fast speed. For the browser under the application program, it is mainly used for the HTML content, supporting three letter styles, full screen mode, and the analogue mouse for assisting the pages up and down, left and right.

7. The method that Nokia N95 makes wanted picture as the full screen wallpaper: To set full screen wallpaper, you must put the picture into your used Theme, and use S60 Theme Studio for Symbian OS to make your theme then add wanted picture into it. At last, combine them into sis files and install the theme into your cell phone. Here is ready for you to apply the theme onto your cell phone under the settings list.

8. The method to run N95 and speed up

a. Only using a SIM card, N95 will run slowly. You need to clear the spam files on hard drive C. The simplest way is to replace SIM card with MINISD card for restarting the cell phone. For about 3-5 minutes, shut down the cell phone to change back SIM card. Like this, Series60 system will renew the data on hard drive C, auto clearing original useless files. If you are interested, you can have a try.

b. Shut down unnecessary background program. The camera wont run on the background if it is not open. But as long as you have opened, even though it is shut down, it will run on the background in order to operate it faster. It is the same with card folder. In the running program interface, press select and then press shut down the application program. It will really close the using program.

9. The batch deletion and the batch copy
The method to batch deletion and batch copy: Sometimes, we need to delete a lot of information or the images. It is boring to delete them one by one. At this time, you can do like this: option
