This just seems like a giant stale device from Nokia. They once had the most advanced smartphone platform in existence, and now I'd rank them 4th.. or even 5th. I mean c'mon, how does such a crappy UI even get green lit? They didn't even try.

I don't see too many people plunking down $700.00 for a device that gets burned by a $100.00 iPhone.

Thats funny...I had a 3GS for a week now and sold it for the N97....

NO Mass Storage
NO BT file tranfers
NOT worth 3X the internet data package of the N97 $10 vs $30!!!
No replacable battery
No FM radio
No BT printing
Have to use iTunes to do anything.
Pinhole camera lens no LEDs
No real keyboard
No immediate sharing of photos and Videos on multiple sites and emails all handled in the BACKGROUND while IM on to other things.
NO multi tasking.
No SD card storage capability
Nokia has 16:9 widescreen
Iphone has old TV 4:3

Iphone has "a great interface" and a ton of "fluffy" aps. Its a great toy whereas the Nokia is a great tool. No Nanny phones for me LOL.

Iphone is heavier, wider and felt like a wet fish always thought it would slip out of my hand and nearly impossible to use with one hand. Nokia is slim and taller and the screen is a modern 16:9 aspect ration unlike the old school 4:3 videos of the iPhone

No the iphone has a ways to go to become a do it all phone....maybe next time.

Apple only JUST got video, a decent camera,
