What's in a name?
The N97? Mighty modest for the smartest smartphone on the planet! Nokia could have done better to have given this flagship smartphone a more interesting name - the Nokia Nutcracker?
Seems to look pretty good - it has up to 48GB of memory, a 5MP camera (my iPhone camera sucks) and Flash support, in addition to other interesting GPS, updated maps support, N-gage gaming, social navigation and music - the Nutcracker Suite!
Nokia also completed the acquisition of Symbian, which it will release as an open-source platform, much like the Open Handset Alliance. This, in the same breath as indicating that Linux could be used more in high-end phones.
This expensive arrow has been launched from the east!
