New Nokia "mobile computer" (cellphone)

On Tuesday Nokia unveiled the N97, which the company says is the world's most advanced mobile computer, and will "transform the way people connect to the Internet and to each other."

Designed for the needs of the Internet-savvy, the N97 combines a large 3.5" touch display with a full QWERTY keyboard, providing an always-open window to favorite social networking sites and Internet destinations. It has new technology - including multiple sensors, memory, processing power and connection speeds - for people to create a personal Internet and share their "social location."

With integrated A-GPS sensors and an electronic compass, the Nokia N97 mobile computer intuitively understands where it is. This makes it easy to update social networks automatically with real-time information, giving approved friends the ability to update their "status" and share their "social location" as well as related pictures or videos.

The home screen of the N97 features the people, content and media that matter the most. Friends, social networks and news are available by simply touching the home screen. The 16:9 widescreen display can be fully personalized with frequently updated widgets of favorite web services and social networking sites. The N97 is also suited for browsing the web, streaming Flash videos or playing games. Both the physical QWERTY and virtual touch input can aid efficiency in blogging, chatting, posting, sending texts or emailing.

The Nokia N97 supports up to 48 GB of storage, including 32 GB of onboard memory, expandable with a 16 GB microSD card for music, media and more. This is complemented by music capabilities, full support for the Nokia Music Store and continuous playback time of up to 1.5 days.

The Nokia N97 also has a 5-Megapixel camera with high-quality Carl Zeiss optics, 16:9 and DVD quality video capture, and support for services like Share on Ovi for immediate sharing over HSDPA and WLAN.

The Nokia N97 is expected to begin shipping in the first half of 2009 at an estimated retail price of $699 before taxes or subsidies.
