The Nokia N97 is the latest "Mobile Computer" in the N series of smartphones.

After the Nokia 5800 Xpress Music, N97 is Nokia's second touchscreen phone. The company in its keynote converted a N95 intohttp://www.hindustantimes.com/news/images/N97.jpg N97.

It has brilliant design and specifications. If we were talking about its design then it is very similar to Sony XperiaX1 but at first sight N97 reminds you of the Apple iphone with its huge 3.5" TFT touchscreen and with only one button at the bottom. It has a slide out QWERTY (computer like keyboard with one alphabet per key) keyboard.

So, after a long time Nokia N97 is ready to take on the Apple iphone, Sony XperiaX1 and other handsets in its genre.
