As more details emerge about this cellular giant, I found myself wanting to keep adding to the last post, so instead I figured I would just post again about the N97.

The N97 will be the first high-end device powered by the latest touchscreen Symbian S60 OS and will include goodies missing from other high end devices, such as a 3.5mm headphones jack (cough cough, G1), full QWERTY (cough cough iPhone and HD), stereo bluetooth (cough cough iPhone, OK I think you get the coughing thing), an FM radio, Nokia Maps enabled by touch, a digital compass (similar to the G1 I am guessing), an accelerometer,  and a proximity sensor so the screen turns of during calls.

Usually, when a new phone is announced, my first instinct is to try and determine what it is missing. WiFI, 3G, good camera?

The N97, as far as I can tell, is not missing anything. Who said there is no such thing as a perfect phone?

I think it is safe to say that until someone invents some sort of new technology for cellphones, the N97 will remain on top.

I’m always skeptical of phones that come in two parts. The connection is always a weak point. I’ll bet you that in 6 months we start hearing about tons of repairs on the connection between the keyboard and the phone.

You would be right in most cases, but that little word that appears in the upper right corner (Nokia) ensures that there will not be problems with the hardware.
