A new age is here... With our lives becoming faster and more hectic, none of us can do without mobile phones and increasingly rather than just messaging or voice calls, mobile phones have changed the way we create presentations, view photos, listen to music or make a style statement. With the advent of QWERTY keyboards and full touch screens; to 8MP cameras and beyond, today’s mobile phones are revolutionizing the way we communicate and the way we work; the Nokia N97 is the latest in a long chain of Nokia smart phones which has recently been announced by Phones4U -- more information is available at

Touch screen technology has caught the attention of everyone and the smooth scrolling introduced by the Apple iPhone and HTC Touch has now turned into a mini-revolution with all manufacturers coming out with their best efforts to capture the market share. So, it’s not surprising that conventional leader Nokia is not far behind. However, a unanimous problem with most touch screen phones is the difficulty of typing text messages and full emails. Somehow using fingers on the screen itself just doesn’t seem to work well.

The solution appears to be to take a full touch-screen technology mobile phone and mix it with a QWERTY keypad. This combined form factor does the trick and the fantastic result of this can be seen in the form of Nokia N97, release date confirmed by Phones4u as 26th June 2009.

If critics said that such a phone would be bulky, let them eat their own words, because Nokia N97 weighs just 150gms! It has an impressive internal memory of 32GB and has an expandable card slot for up to 16GB. Just imagine having a small computer in your hands that’s as powerful as your laptop. It also features Wi-Fi, 3G, 5MP camera with LED Flash, 3.5 mm audio jack, stereo speakers, GPS, accelerometer, handwriting recognition and even FM radio.

All this is neatly packaged with the latest Symbian OS 9.4 S60 rel.5. Viewing all formats of video files on the 3.5 inch resistive touch screen is surely going to be a fun experience. It is all set to compete against the ruling Apple iPhone and other mobile phones by Samsung, LG and HTC. It seems Nokia finally is ready with the perfect recipe for ruling the roost, even in the touch screen segment.

Phones4u are also running a free competition to win a Nokia N97 -
