Nokia heralds N97 as most powerful mobile yet

Nokia's new flagship mobile, the N97, is a touchscreen phone with a Qwerty keyboard that slides out from beneath the screen.

Nokia's new flagship phone, the touchscreen N97, features a large memory and advanced location-aware features.

The N97, launched on Tuesday, comes equipped with a 3.5-inch,16:9 touchscreen (the resolution is 640x360) and up to 48G bytes of storage; including 32G bytes of internal storage and another 16G bytes via a microSD card slot.

It also has a Qwerty keyboard that slides out from beneath the screen. The phone is expected to retail for EUR550 (US$690) before taxes or subsidies and ship during the first half of next year.

It is "the most powerful, multi-sensory mobile computer in existence," said Jonas Geust, vice president for Nokia's Nseries.

Included on the long list of features is a 5-megapixel camera with a dual LED flash, A-GPS (Assisted Global Positioning System), HSDPA (High Speed Downlink Packet Access) and Wi-Fi.

The Finnish phone giant also promises DVD-quality video capture.

The growing interest for mobile social networking isn't lost on Nokia and is an important part of the phone. Nokia is introducing a concept called social location, which uses A-GPS sensors and an electronic compass to let users know exactly where they are.

Users also have fast access to social networks through the device's home screen, which makes it easy to update those networks with real-time information, Nokia said.

The phone will also be integrated with a number of services including the gaming platform N-gage, Share on Ovi and the Nokia Music Store.
