Video Advert: Introduction to the Nokia N97

| July 13, 2009 | Reply

The Nokia N97 looks absolutely stunning in the first 30 seconds of this video. It’s a new advert to showcase some of the major features of the N97.

I love how it opened up by itself at 00:24. Maybe if Nokia continues with this form factor, they could work out a way for the keyboard to pop up with a button press or a switch?

See how good the viewfinder looks when you can use the entire screen (01:44)? Now will we ever get widescreen photos?

And oh – video and TV: Loving BBC iPlayer – but when will we get support for DivX so we can use our N97’s as portable movie players too? DivX player works, but it’s not optimised for 5th Edition S60 so videos are choppy.
