Nokia N97 unboxing video

The Nokia N97 is yet another device launched recently with a sliding QWERTY keyboard. The N97 has been eagerly awaited by Nokia fans that are, perhaps, envious of the QWERTY form-factor of their WinMo counterparts but just don’t like Windows Mobile and/or are happy with Symbian. Granted this is not the first sliding QWERTY phone from Nokia but it’s the first to feature the tilting mechanism.

Nokia critics are keen to point out that the N97 is some two years behind the HTC TyTN II but can we consider that a fair comparison? We’ll be looking at the Nokia N97 over the next few weeks and we’ll make the inevitable comparisons to the HTC Touch Pro2 and the Acer M900 which have all hit my desk over the past few weeks.

Have a look at the unboxing video below to see what’s included in the package as well as a quick look at the OS.
