Video: Unboxing of the White Nokia N97 from WOMWorld

| June 25, 2009 | 7 Replies


I know you guys have seen a million of these before, but here’s my unboxing of the Nokia N97 (white one) from WOMWorld (Thanks Donna and Cally!). It’s probably the worst unboxing you’ve seen but forgive me as I was just so excited to open it up and play around with the N97.


(Urgh – cringe, I hate hearing myself speak)

I was kinda hoping for the white to see if I could be convinced out of the black. As it stands, right now – I still want the black N97.

First thing about the slide is that it feels so smooth. When I bought a fake dummy version of the N97, I was expecting a quick snap like a flick knife but instead it feels like one of those expensive soft close kitchen drawers (especially if you open and close it slowly)


First 5 minutes

Setting it up was a doddle. Internet settings were automatically received by text (via O2) – facebook and gmail already set up – just popped in my username and password and that was that.

Moving contacts to N97

It would have been easiest if my N82 let me use the “Switch” application to add my contacts over to the N97 but it has never worked since the V31 firmware.

I’d have used Ovi contacts but it has problems if you have multiple numbers per contact, often ignoring those additional details.

Through PC Suite contacts – it does the job of copying the numbers (but it doesn’t copy the customised labels for those numbers…e.g. multiple contact may have several mobile phone numbers)

Side note:

  • I hate talking on video
  • I hate the one sided conversation. Haha. I have so much respect for those who do video blogs/video reviews.
  • My internet is painfully slow hence the slow upload of the video.
