"Mobile adapted browser experience." Hahaha. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say you don't know much about Nokia's. The N97 browser is wonderful. There's no multi-touch on the N97, but honestly, it's not necessary, and I've never found myself saying I wish it were there. Web pages load quickly and as you would see them on a computer, unless for some reason the website kicks you over to a mobile version. Websites detect things like that. It's got kinetic scrolling just like the iPhone(allows you to run your finger all around the screen to scroll around), and double tap to zoom, which allows you to double tap on an area and zooms in so you can easily read small text or click a small link, and is a joy to have. The browser also automatically goes to full screen when you enter an address in. It's not quite as fast as the 3GS, a fraction slower, but then again, its running a slightly slower processor and has less RAM, but even still, it does a wonderful job and is very fast to me. The best part is that the N97 can show flash content, which means you can view the desktop version of youtube should you choose to do so. The iPhone can't handle flash content and can't do that. So if you really can't live without multi-touch, I guess the iPhone would be "better." Otherwise, the N97 is the better choice. Now if AT&T's network would stop being such a pain, I could spend more time surfing the web.
