As a matter of fact, areena.yle.fi uses windows media codec as of now. areena-beta.yle.fi is the address with flash content.

I know alot of people don't like the OVI suite, personally i do although I have no idea why, so I just wondered which version comes on the supplied disk? Is it the same as the latest version available to download on the internet or is it some new, never before seen version?
Thanks.

Nokia N97

I have been using SMS Export from S60.com for years now.

It's one of the free exculsive utilities that members get. I use it to export SMSs from my Inbox to any destination folder in text format, so that I can easily transfer the exported SMS to PC, PDA or to another phone via Bluetooth/Cable. It is integral to my work.

Will it work on the Nokia N97?

wrapping of text in the browser?

Great first part to your review and looking forward to the rest!

A question on the browser - does it auto wrap the text of a web page when switching orientation and when zooming? ie, is the text justified to fit the screen or are we still forced to sideways scroll as with the 5800 due to text continuing past the edge of the screen?

Thanks!

My 5800 wraps text to fit the screen width in both landscape and portrait view. Its a set peeve of mine but it certainly does do this. Just remember it only does this for zoom level at 100%. I think people zoom in beyond 100% and then think the browser is not fitting the text properly. But it does indeed fit to the screen width.

Auto-rotation clockwise

I never see any auto-rotation clockwise (so that the Nokia logo is upside down). Could you confirm or deny that auto-rotation works that direction? A 360 would be nice, if not a 720 and back. Thanks!

How often do you have to recharge the phone with daily average use? (email, texts, calls, music, etc)

Another test: since they've made improvements to the web browser, can you tell me if you can access the ArsTechnica forum. Both my N82 and my 5800 show a blank page. Another of those things that work fine on the Samsung i8910, but not on any Nokia I've owned.

Edit: probably the answer is affirmative. Through a Google search, I found the User-Agent string of the N97, and it turns out the N97 uses version 525 of the webkit, like the i8910. All other Nokia phones released so far (N82, N95, N95 8GB, N96, N85, 5800, etc.) use version 413 or lower. Hopefully in time they'll update the browser on most other phones.

quick one

hi steve youre doing a wonderful job with the Q and A!!! well impressed so far

just as a matter of "fact"- the n97 DOES take better pics than the n95/n82/n96 and i (personally) think this is due to the algorithms being tweaked a bit....
take a look here for a comparison

http://thereallymobileproject.com/20...ra-comparison/

another very reputable site (eldar) has stated that the n97 has 70mb free ram
any idea how he calculated this? (as you stated 46mb)
is it a matter that it is 70mb with the homescreen widgets deactivated(if possible)
or just a typo?

using an external antenna

Is it possible to use an external antenna or signal amplifier with the n97 and how would you do this?
Thanks for answering all of these questions.

Steve, perhaps you could do a side by side web browser comparison between the n97 and the 5800. Use wifi for both phones and do some timed tests loading the same site. It could also show if the n97 is significantly smoother and renders sites faster.

This would be great and demonstrate the better hardware and faster cpu. Of course this isn't exactly a Q&A question, but please try to fit this in at some point. Thanks!
