Processor Speed--this is probably why the N97's GPS works so poorly (giving wrong distance advisories and directions to turn after-you-have-already-passed-it.
I got my iphone4 on Christmas eve and what a fantastic piece of technology it is. Does everything I want it to do without even breaking a sweat. I'm so glad I bought it. Bye bye Nokia.
Does anyone want to buy a Nokia N97?

the guys from Nokia Austria just told me, that there is no further update planned for the N97.
i asked them on their Facebook-Group and here's their answer:
Hallo Georg! Wir haben Rücksprache mit den Kollegen gehalten, du hast die aktuellste Software schon auf deinem Gerät - Leider sind für das Nokia N97 keine Software-Updates mehr vorgesehen!
hello georg! we asked our colleagues and you have latest firmware on your phone - unfortunately no further updates are planned for this device!
CAN THIS REALLY BE TRUE?!
might be true. If there was an update, it would have been out long ago. I dont remember seeing any official notification about v30 from Nokia either.
PR 1.3? what are you talking about? i'm really interested in that topic and reading every entry here but i have no clue what you're talking about now.

[...]but i have no clue what you're talking about now.
He is talking abou that: http://europe.nokia.com/support/download-software/
I don't think a statement on the official nokia austria site on facebook isn't true. I think it's the only official one we have, all the other things were speculations.
