Nokia N97 brings Qwerty keyboard , touch screen and so-lo (social location) concept in Nokia N series phones. However it`s still early to say exact robustness of these features in long term use.

The most exciting and new feature which i see in Nokia 97 is it`s so-lo feature which is a social networking updater using with the help of integrated GPS navigator and Integrated digital compass. Along with that the update is painless with one touch from the screen.

However real time updates about your location with co-ordinates can sound dangerous , But if used properly can be a big hit for sure.

Nokia N97 brings concept of widgets and look much like a desktop screen. These widgets are reconfigurable and provide some much required user friendliness.

The place where iPhone clearly missed was the screen size , Nokia N97 boast of a 16:9 widescreen display (640×360 pixels) which can be fully personalized with frequently updated widgets of favorite web services and social networking sites. Nokia N97 is also perfectly suited for browsing the web, streaming Flash videos or playing games. What more you want from your Entertainment gadget. !

With support up to 48 GB of storage, including 32 GB of on-board memory, expandable with a 16 GB microSD card you will never miss a moment or your favourite song.

Last not but the least, It boasts of a 5-Megapixel camera with high-quality Carl Zeiss Tessar optics, 16:9 and DVD quality video capture . Something where iPhone completely missed out, A killer smartphone with killer entertainment feature may be the package that the market was looking for .

However , Unfortunately, We have to wait till first half of 2009 for this phone to appear, No sources to reveal whether it will be available in India
