March 6, 2009 - PRLog -- After earlier reporting back on 10th January that we had received a confirmed release date for the forthcoming N97 smartphone the retailer pulled the product page from their website.

Now we have had two more confirmed released dates from two independent retailers in the UK both stating exactly the same date that they are expecting their first stocks of the Nokia N97 for sale as a SIM Free and unlocked mobile phone.

The first is from the original retailer, Play who have now added the product page back into their site and the second is from Expansys, both retailers are declaring that they will have stocks of the white edition Nokia N97 on 23rd of June 2009, however there is a price difference!

Nokia N97 Deals:

Play are listing the phone at £599.99 pre-order with free delivery whilst Expansys are listing as £629.99 VAT inclusive.

Let’s just hope that both retailers this time have the right release date for the N97 and the we can all get our expectations up for the launch of this amazing new N-Series smartphone!

Nokia N97 Review:

It may be an N series handset, but the N97 carves a new space in the otherwise blurred realm between smartphone and laptop - a product built on a foundation of rock solid mobile principles, Nokia innovations, and tangible new technologies, pushed to the extreme and embodied in a slimline pocket shell.

Just as the original N95 re-shaped our perceptions of what’s possible with a mobile device, the N97 again raises the bar beyond the reach of its peers by equipping us with a product that fuses the best proven Nokia hardware, software and Internet services, blended with a new flavour of design, ergonomics and usability.

The most physically immediate stand-out feature of the N97 is its kick-out full QWERTY keyboard, hidden behind a 3.5-inch widescreen 16:9 touch display that tilts smartly above the keys. Both control methods neatly coexist and are tailored to ensure every experience, be it messaging, social, entertainment-focussed or otherwise, are manageable via the most instinctive physical toolset available.

The touchscreen promises to be exploited to full effect, even when inactive, courtesy of a new homescreen that automatically sucks in live information via custom widgets sat on a S60 5th Edition backbone.

Nokia N97 Reviews:

The N97 enters the fray stomaching 32GB of on-board storage, double that of any mobile device currently in existence, and can take up to another 16GB via microSD, enabling it to become a portable multi-media computer with 48GB in your pocket. Of course Nokia wants you to abuse this space with music, movies, photos and N-Gage games, and as such has worked hard to ensure the N97’s battery is up to the task - it promises to kick out up to 37 hours of music and 4.5 hours of video.
Embracing location based services and the concept of context awareness, the N97 is location-savvy, automatically sensing where it is at any given time via A-GPS. The benefit being that you’ll be able to tap into local services with ease and share your social location with friends minus any extra fiddling or fuss.

Other key talents include a 5 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss Tessar lens and dual LED flash, GPS, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, USB 2.0, stereo Bluetooth and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
