The Nokia N97 is slightly larger and heavier than Apple's iPhone — one of its main rivals. Its 3.5-inch screen is the same size as that of the iPhone, but at 640x360 pixels, its resolution outstrips that of the 480x320-pixel iPhone screen. The N97 can also handle Flash video in its browser — something the iPhone cannot do.
The N97 has 32GB of inbuilt flash storage and can take microSD cards of up to 16GB in capacity. The Finnish manufacturer claims the device's 1500mAh battery can handle one-and-a-half days of continuous music playback.
Connectivity options include Bluetooth 2.0, HSDPA, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi and a Micro-USB port. The handset can also take standard 3.5mm headphone jacks, and a 5-megapixel camera with flash is included.
According to Nokia, the N97 will be made available in Europe in the first half of 2009. The estimated retail price, before taxes or operator subsidies, will be €550 (£469).
