Nokia N97: The Best of E and N Series Worlds

Somebody have posted in another forum that Nokia will be watching closely the sale of N97, since accordingly this will dictate some of Nokia's pipeline projects, particularly where their S60 phones are heading...

IMHO, for the 1st time since the Nokia S60 world was divided into N and E series, we have a potential handset that will offer both worlds, well I am assuming that many of the "business related services" that used to be only E-series enjoy will be ported to the whole S60 spectrum, as in the case of the Mail for Exchange and Lotus Notes supports as an example.

One of the things that I really miss from the E90 is the qwerty, well that and the super big wide screen. With the N97, it may not offer the same sized screen on the E90 nor is the keyboard same as the E90, however it is very close to it, in many aspect. Of course, one can not say anything about the actual usage coz we simply have not used it, but, then as a 5800 user who have used the E90, one can easily surmise what one can expect from the N97 as far as screen and qwerty are concerned. With that in mind, I think there is a big possibility that i wont need a New Communicator, and if Nokia sees that too, quite possibly the E90 might be the last communicator...

or one can just simply say, the N97- is an N-series with a Communicator heart or the N97 is actually a communicator, masquerading as an N-series...
