Hi all,
Does anyone know ALL the differences between the N97 sold in North America and the global version for most of the other countries?

From what I have seen:
America does NOT have an FM transmitter or Nokia Music etc, global does (any idea why?)

America does NOT have HSDPA and GPRS, global has HSDPA and GPRS.

I know the american version will work in Dubai United Arab Emirates, but I guess GPRS etc won't. Question is, is this a hardware or software based issue? If software I can just try and flash it with a version of global software, correct?

Any help on other differences and other tips would be great. I ordered the phone on Amazon, and just noticed these differences, which may make me have to cancel the order.


PS - Sorry if I double posted; not sure which was the best thread post in!
