Nokia N97 arrives ahead of schedule

The much awaited Nokia N97 arrives ahead of time when my editor Art Samaniego presented me the phone straight from our Manila Bulletin TechLab. Being with TechNews allows us to have the first crack to try and test the latest gadgets available in the market today.

Nokia is set to launch Nokia N97 here in the Philippines by June 25, 2009.

My first impression is the Nokia N97 is one classy phone. The look and feel of the phone is something you can’t miss. The transition from touchscreen UI to QWERTY keyboard is smooth. The Nokia N97 is the first to ship with the Ovi Store app natively installed.

The Nokia N97 is a S60 5th Edition mobile computer with a large 3,5“, bright nHD (640 x 360 pixels and 16:9 aspect ratio) TFT color display with resistive touch screen and tactile feedback. The device provides excellent user experience for internet and entertainment by combining qwerty keyboard with touch UI and Home screen functionality.

Use the N97 to connect to mobile broadband using WLAN or HSDPA (3.5G). Find directions and locations with the integrated A-GPS and included maps. Additional features include game titles with N-Gage, a 5 mega pixel camera with dual LED flash and automatic geotagging of images and videos.

We will provide you more information about this new toy as are still testing it.

On a personal note:

When Art Samaniego provided me with an iPhone as a gift, people in our profession accused us of being corrupt and being criminals(?). They thought the iPhone was provided to us by Apple for a good write up. Just because they are guilty of their own accusations, they thought all other reporters, columnist and editors are like them.

Now that my editor presented me with the new Nokia N97, people in our profession will definitely cry with envy again. They will definitely come up with new lies and concocted stories on where the phone came from since this is the first Nokia N97 in the Philippines.

What can we say but there are really people out there with blood tainted with selfishness and foolishness. There are those who have nothing to do in their lives but to be jealous and envious about the achievents of others. So be careful people because you mingle with them as well.

As a final note, these people are people with no BALLS. They will spread rumors and lies but when confronted, they will deny their actions. Worst, they hate you and will stab you behind your back but love you and kiss-your-ass during face-to-face encounters. Cerfified A-Holes and SOBs really.

A word of advice – respect are earned. People in the industry are not fools like you. They know the truth. No amount of superficial accolades can bring you respect and integrity. You have to be sincere and true to yourself to be respected in the industry.

You want to know who these people are? Get in touch with me and I will whisper their identities to you. A careless whisper that is.
