Microsoft and Yahoo seal web search deal

Microsoft's Ashley Highfield: "It brings scale and innovation to the search market"
Yahoo and Microsoft have announced a long-rumoured internet search deal that will help the two companies take on chief rival Google.

Microsoft's Bing search engine will power the Yahoo website and Yahoo will in turn become the advertising sales team for Microsoft's online offering.

Yahoo has been struggling to make profits in recent years. But last year it rebuffed several takeover bids from Microsoft in an attempt to go it alone.

Microsoft boss Steve Ballmer said the 10-year deal would provide Microsoft's Bing search engine with the necessary scale to compete.

"Through this agreement with Yahoo, we will create more innovation in search, better value for advertisers, and real consumer choice in a market currently dominated by a single company," said Mr Ballmer.

"Microsoft and Yahoo know there's so much more that search could be. This agreement gives us the scale and resources to create the future of search," he added.

Yahoo is bowing to the inevitable. It simply had neither the resources nor the focus to win the technological arms race for search supremacy

In return for ceding control of its search engine, Yahoo will get to keep 88% of the revenue from all search ad sales on its site for the first five years of the deal, and have the right to sell adverts on some Microsoft sites.

Yahoo's search team, meanwhile, will have to brace itself for job losses over the next two years. Some staff will transfer to Microsoft, others can stay on with Yahoo, but redundancies would be unavoidable, Yahoo chief executive Carol Bartz told the BBC.

'New era'

Yahoo said the deal would benefit Yahoo's users and advertisers.

"This agreement comes with boatloads of value for Yahoo, our users, and the industry. And I believe it establishes the foundation for a new era of internet innovation and development," said Ms Bartz.

January 2008: Microsoft offers to buy Yahoo for $44.6bn in cash and shares, later raised to $47.5bn
May 2008: Microsoft walks away from the table after the two sides fail to agree on a price
June 2008: Yahoo strikes a deal to use Google's technology, with Google ads appearing on some Yahoo search results
November 2008: Google abandons the Yahoo deal after objections from anti-trust regulators in the US
November 2008: Yahoo co-founder Jerry Yang stands down as the firm's boss
April 2009: Yahoo says it will cut 5% of its workforce after quarterly profits drop sharply
May 2009: Microsoft relaunches its own search engine, now branded
July 2009: After new speculation, Microsoft and Yahoo finally announce a web search deal

Profiles: Yahoo and Microsoft
The deal became possible after Yahoo's co-founder Jerry Yang stepped down as chief executive of the company late last year.

"Only a Yahoo outsider like Ms Bartz could do such a deal," said Tim Weber, business editor of the BBC News website.

"She has no sentimental attachment to what was once the core of Yahoo, its search business. Microsoft was helped by the fact that at long last it managed to develop a search engine - Bing - that is a credible alternative to search giant Google."

Yahoo said the deal would boost annual operating income by $500m and secure $200m in savings.

The tie-up will give Microsoft and Yahoo a combined market share in the US search ad market of about 30%.

Google would still be the dominant force with a share of about 65%.


The deal ends years of back-and-forth negotiations between the two companies.

Microsoft originally offered to buy Yahoo in January 2008 - with an offer worth about $47.5bn.

But Mr Ballmer later withdrew that bid after Yahoo's then boss, Mr Yang, demanded a higher price.

Yahoo instead opted for an online advertising partnership with rival Google.

But that tie-up was later abandoned because of the risk of a protracted battle with regulators over competition issues.

Windows 7 Final RTM Leakes

Microsoft have finally announed that at 4pm 22 July E.T. Windows 7 went to RTM.This marks a significant milestone in the development of what was a very short beta and testing process. The decision to RTM has been eagerly anticipated for weeks by the very same people who were saying the beta’s not been long enough. Well, you can’t have everything I suppose!
You already know that Microsoft has finally finished the Windows 7 RTM build and the exact same build happened to make its way to various P2P networks and other downloads sites and services pretty quickly. Users who did already download the release or who might be thinking about doing so should verify the download so that they can be sure that their version has not been manipulated in any way. A German Microsoft employee posted the CRC and Sha-1 checksums of the Windows 7 RTM releases. The Checksums of the downloaded images can be generated for example by tools like Microsoft’s own File Checksum Integrity Verifier or Hashtab.
The RTM build number is 7600.16385

BlackBerry 9550 Storm 2 info leaks

There's a video of an early version of the BlackBerry 9550 Storm 2 up on and here's the rundown: the display still clicks but it's better, there will be Wi-Fi, the storage memory has been doubled and the hardware keys on the front are now part of the display.
If you haven't had a chance to see the original Blackberry Storm in action, we'll remind you of its one-off design. The Storm display actually sinks in when pressed as if you press a real button to create a revolutionary haptic experience on a full touch mobile phone. Unfortunately, due to its chubby body, lack of Wi-Fi and poor camera results along with software instability issues the Blackberry Storm failed to live up to our expectations.
The upcoming and yet unannounced BlackBerry Storm 2 screen however has apparently evolved. It's now fixed in place (much like on a regular phone) but only while the device is off. Switching it on allows it to start "clicking" back again.
At this point we can't really imagine how they've implemented that, but one thing's for sure - the gaps between the display and the frame are now much smaller and there is no more wobbling or dust collection that plagued the display design on the original Storm.

Both the hardware and software shown on the video are early versions of what will eventually be the BlackBerry Storm 2, so details are definitely subject to change. Some time ago we posted spy shots of the Storm 2 and its looks don't seem to have changed much but there are no guarantees this is the final version.
For now, the OS is practically the same, version 5.1, and likely won't change too much but the phone reportedly has more memory, which improves performance. Storage memory has also been doubled to 2GB.
As far as rumored upgrades of the internals go, the BlackBerry Storm 2 should have Wi-Fi and improved performance as the UI reportedly runs much smoother than the one on the current model. The camera is unchanged at 3.15 megapixels with autofocus.
There's also hearsay about a new approach to text entry and since this is an area quite important to all BlackBerries we hope it's true. Either way, RIM seem determined to get to the casual users, not just executives on the
The overall built quality has improved - the back panel for example, is better designed. The overall look of the phone is mostly the same, though more polished. Still, the thing is quite heavy as 155 grams is heavyweight these days.

Dates of Windows 7 Final RTM Download

Microsoft on 21 July conformed how its partners and business customers will be getting Windows 7 RTM (release to manufacturing) code, which will be available next month on different days for different types of users.
Microsft also announced in an entry on The Windows Blog that it would release a “Windows 7 family pack” of the Windows 7 Home Premium. Windows 7 family pack will allow installation of the software on as many as three PCs. Details on the price were not given till now by anyone.

What to Expect in the RTM

We’re all witnessing the fuss over the RTM and are eager to install it, despite the fact that the RC is feature-complete and in my opinion, has the potential to be the final product. What I expect though is a more stable release with fewer problems and better support to non-English versions of Windows 7. Microsoft seems to be putting a lot of effort in the RTM and want it to be excellent, if not ‘perfect’. What do you think?

Here is Who Gets Windows 7 RTM When
August 06, 2009 ISV and IHV (independent hardware/software vendors) with MSDN subscriptions will be able to download Windows 7 RTM

Partner Program Gold/Certified Members will be able to download Windows 7 RTM on August 16, 2009(In English).
(In other languages it will be available after Oct 1, 2009)

Microsoft Action Pack Subscribers will be able to download Windows 7 RTM in English starting Aug. 23, with the remaining languages for them also available for release by Oct. 1.

OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) will get Windows 7 RTM software images in two days after the release.
Business customers (volume-license customers) with existing licenses for Software Assurance (SA), Microsoft’s upgrade program, can download Windows 7 RTM in English Aug. 7 through Volume License Service Center (VLSC). The other languages will be available two weeks later.
Volume License customers without an SA license will be able to purchase Windows 7 via Volume Licensing on Sept. 1, 2009.
Release Candidate of Windows 7 is available until March 1, 2010.

Meanwhile, users can either download the Windows 7 RC (Release Candidates) or one of the leaked builds (that were/are expected to be the RTM). If you still haven’t downloaded the RC, you still have time until 20 August. However, Microsoft has decided to start gradually ending the RC testing program and focus more on the RTM. Thus, it has sent a message a few days ago to those who had downloaded the RC through the Windows 7 website saying:
Notice: Downloads will end August 20
Thanks for all your help building Windows 7. We are on our way to the last big milestone: Release to Manufacturing. Starting on October 22, you’ll see it on PCs and store shelves. As we gear up for that, it’s time to wind down the Release Candidate testing program.
…Tell us what you think. If you’re using the Windows 7 Release Candidate, we hope you like what you see. Let us know — go to and tell us what you think. You’ll be able to give feedback on various aspects of the operating system…
So I think we’re now close to saying goodbye to the RC and giving a warm welcome to the RTM once it’s signed off and available for download to MSDN and TechNet subscribers and Volume License Customers. :)

Microsoft Office applications takes to the online

Microsoft has fired its latest salvo at Google, by announcing a free web-based version of its Office software today,14 July,2009.Next MS Office 2010 will include lightweight versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote when it ships next year.The new web offering will then compete with Google's free online Docs suite launched three years ago.Microsoft Office 2010 will replace previous microsoft office 2007 & microsoft office 2003.Microsoft Office 2010 also fulfill the demands of free microsoft office.
Last week Google took aim at Windows with news of a free operating system,commited to release next year while in June Microsoft introduced a new search engine called Bing.And Microsoft Will releasing Windows 7 on 22 October this year after the loss of Windows Vista.

"We believe the web has a lot to offer in terms of connectivity," Microsoft's group product manager for Office told the press.
"We have over a half a billion customers world-wide and what we hear from them is that they really want the power of the web without compromise. They want collaboration without compromise.
"And what they tell us today is that going to the web often means they sacrifice fidelity, functionality and the quality of the content they care about. We knew that if and when we were ever going to bring applications into a web environment, we needed to do the hard work first because we hold such a high bar," said Mr Bryant.

Microsoft said that 400 million customers who are Windows Live consumers will have access to the Office web applications at free of cost.

At a conference for business partners in New Orleans, Microsoft announced an early release of web-apps to thousands of testers later this year.

At the end of the year the company expects to release a proper public beta for the software,MS Office 2010 and ship a final version off to PC makers in the first half of 2010.

Presumably, you'll see more ribbon-ized applications and a more customizable ribbon all around, but we'll have to wait and see. Microsoft Office 2010, codenamed Office 14, is the successor of microsoft office 2007, a productivity suite for Microsoft Windows. Extended file compatibility, user interface updates, and a refined user experience are planned for Office 2010. A 64-bit & 32-bit version of Office 2010 will be available.

Here is some FAQs for you about the Microsoft Office 2010

Q: What is Office 2010?
A: Office 2010 (previously codenamed Office 14) is the next version of the ms office(Like microsoft office 2007,MS office 2008 XP,microsoft office 2003) System, a suite of PC applications, mobile applications, servers, and services, and the successor to Office 2007.

Q:Why Office 14?
A: 14 is the version number. Office 2007 was called Office 12 internally at Microsoft. The company skipped 13 for superstitious reasons.
Q: Will there be a public beta test?
A: Yes. Microsoft plans to ship two pre-release versions of Office 2010 to the public. The first, called the Office 2010 Technical Preview, which already shiped in July to a limited set of testers.

The second public release will be a broader public beta that will be available to any and all via a free download from the Microsoft web site. That release is expected in Q3 2009.

Q: When will be Office 2010 shiped?
A: Microsoft says it will ship the Office 2010 clients (i.e. the end user applications that make up the Office 2010 suite) in "the first half of 2010," along with other parts of the Office 2010 System, including Office Web Applications, SharePoint Server 2010, Visio 2010 and Project 2010. However, certain components of the Office 2010 System will ship before then: Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 will ship in "the fourth quarter of 2009," according to the software giant. Up in the air is the next version of Office Mobile (sometimes called "Pocket Office" for Windows Mobile though Microsoft has made it clear that the Office 2010 wave will include an update there as well.

Q: Will the beta be made available to the public?
A: Yes, and contrary to widespread but erroneous reports stating otherwise. "The Office 2010 technical preview is an invite-only program, but this will be followed by a public beta where millions can try out Office 2010," a Microsoft spokesperson said. "There definitely will be a public beta."

Q:I heard that Office 2010 will be available in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. Is this true?
A: Apparently so. But it's unclear at this time whether they will be sold separately or whether you can choose between the two versions during Setup. Also unclear is what real world benefit a 64-bit version of Word or any other Office application would provide.

Q: What do we know about the Office 2010 application suite?
A: Not much. Early Microsoft documentation for Office 2010 revealed the following high-level information about this suite:

1. Individual Impact

Objective: Continued focus on individual productivity and effectiveness

Microsoft will continue to invest in providing tools for individuals to be productive and effective. The company will be working to make individuals more self-sufficient by enabling them to perform more sophisticated tasks themselves and providing more self and community-based help options. Office 2010 will include improved search relevancy and refinement of the result-oriented database than the previous Office 2007.

2. Communication and Collaboration

Objective: Enable better communication and more efficient information sharing to keep communities, co-workers, partners and customers in sync.

Microsoft will continue to invest in team effectiveness and will be expanding this to include further unification of communications and the ability to work easily with partners and customers. There will be deeper Unified Communications integration with Office 2010, including capabilities that make communications and collaboration more convenient to the user (regardless of device or connectivity) and manageable by IT (through unified identity and robust policy/compliance support).

3. Enterprise Content Management

Objective: Author, Manage and Organize Complex Documents and Content

Microsoft will expand what it provided in Office 2007 for document management to allow better management of complex documents and content. The company will be making sure it keeps the overhead of document management to a minimum and that it is simple for end users to participate in document management processes. Office 2010 will include a flexible storage solution for Digital Asset Management.

4. Business Process and Business Intelligence

Objective: Make the right information available throughout the business processes

Microsoft will make it easy to find, analyze and use the expertise and data hidden within an organization and its business systems to make better informed decisions personally and within a team, while continuing to work within a business process or workflow. Office 2010 will bring business intelligence (BI) to business processes, instead of having BI as an isolated and as-needed activity.

5. Office Business Platform

Objective: Make it simple to build client & web-based business applications

For corporate developers, Microsoft will deliver a platform on which they can easily build and deliver rich solutions that incorporate workflow, business system integration and Office client familiarity. Office 2010 will include Declarative Programming advances and improved Business Data Catalog (BDC) integration.

6. Manageability and Security

Objective: Make it easy to deploy and manage around the globe

Microsoft has made great strides in the last few years on the security, reliability, and deployment of Office, and will continue to invest in these fundamentals. Microsoft will also continue to make global deployments easier with federated, offline and virtualized models. Office 2010 will further improve offline experience in products such as SharePoint and assist global deployments via federated and virtualized deployments.

More recently, Microsoft has said that Office 2010 would help people address the following challenges:

The blurring of the line between home and work.
The need to access and manage information wherever they are, at home, at work, or on the go.
The need to decrease costs at work while improving productivity.
The need to comply with new and increasing regulatory mandates and security protocols.

"With these new products we are giving people a familiar interface across PCs, mobile phones and browsers to make it even easier for them to create, communicate and collaborate from any location," Microsoft senior vice president Chris Capossela has said. "IT professionals will benefit from a choice of new delivery and new licensing models as well as from improved management options to better control costs, and enhanced security across all locations in office 2010. And through our integrated infrastructure, businesses can more easily deploy, manage and help secure corporate assets and comply with government regulations."

Q: That's not very specific. Anything else?
A: You're right, it's not. Microsoft has been very close-lipped about this release. Speaking a bit more specifically--and only a bit--Capossela also revealed that Office 2010 would address the following scenarios:

People want to stay connected to each other.
Customers want an easy way to bring their ideas to life, and they want the freedom to use Office from more locations and on more devices.
Make it even easier for people to create and collaborate in real time using the web, the phone or their PC.
Business users will be able to get deeper insight into their business processes, and easily find and access the information they need to be more productive.
IT professionals will have more flexibility and choice to simplify deployment and lower management costs, while maintaining control.
Q: Anything else?
A: We do know that Microsoft will be extending the ribbon user interface it debuted in Office 2007 to more applications in the Office 2010 suite. For example, Microsoft has publicly demonstrated a version of OneNote 2010 that includes this UI, and recently showed off Outlook 2010 shots that include the ribbon as well.

Image:Outlook 2010 features the ribbon UI.

Also, Microsoft's recent revelations about Exchange 2010 have revealed a few Outlook 2010 features, though these will likely require Exchange 2010 on the back-end as well. They include:

MailTips. Warn users before they commit an e-mail faux pas such as sending mail to large distribution groups, to recipients who are out of the office or to recipients outside the organization, helping protect against information leaks and reduce unnecessary e-mail messages.

Voice Mail Preview. See text previews of voice mail directly in Outlook.

Ignore Conversation. This e-mail "mute button" allows people to remove themselves from an irrelevant e-mail string, reducing unwanted e-mail and runaway reply-all threads in Outlook 2010.

Conversation View. Combine related e-mail messages in a single conversation to reduce inbox clutter.

Call Answering Rules. Create customized "Press 1 for ..." call-routing menus with Exchange voice mail.

Microsoft also hints that it will offer a consistent experience across Outlook on the PC, a mobile phone or a browser.

Q: Any word yet about the different product versions (SKUs) that Office 2010 will provide?
A: No.

Q: What is Office Web Applications?
A: Office Web Applications is a set of lightweight versions of some traditional Office applications that run from the web, like Google Docs. These include Word Web, Excel Web, PowerPoint Web, and OneNote Web. Office Web Applications allow you to view, edit, and collaborate on Office docs in a web browser.

There will be at least two versions of Office Web Applications, a free but ad-supported version for consumers and an ad-free version for businesses that opt into a hosted subscription service or volume-licensing agreement with Microsoft.

Q: How does Office Web Applications relate to Office Live?
A: Currently, Office Live comprises two services, Office Live Small Business and Office Live Workspace. Microsoft stated in early 2009 that it will be merging its Office Live and Windows Live services under a new brand by the time that Office 2010 ships next year. We don't have any further information at this time, though Microsoft did provide the following statement, "To simplify and improve the customer experience around its Live services, Microsoft made the decision to converge Windows Live and Office Live into an integrated set of services at one single destination."

Q: What about Office 2010 for the iPhone?
A: Microsoft has never committed to making such a thing. However, at the Web 2.0 Conference in April 2009, Microsoft president Stephen Elop hinted that Microsoft was at least thinking about how it could bring the Office experience to Apple's mobile phenomenon.

Nokia N97: Review & Specification

The summer of 2009 has definitely been a sizzler for the world of smartphones. The New Nokia N97 introduces the concept of 'social location'. With integrated A-GPS sensors and an electronic compass, the Nokia N97 mobile computer intuitively understands where you are. The release of Nokia N97 is the Nseries counter-move that geeks have been waiting for since November'2008. N97 is one of the most complete smartphones ever created by Nokia, the N97 has been haunting Symbian buffs' dreams for quite a while.

Comparisons to the iPhone started given all its advanced features and the addition of a touch screen and full QWERTY keyboard. However, that was almost a year and a half ago and the N97 is just coming to market. In that time, a lot of things has changed: new players have entered the field (hello, Pre) and others device manufacturers and mobile operating systems continued to push forward but, unfortunately, Nokia didn't come along for the ride. But Nokia doesn't disappoint us. Nokia N97 is absolutely filled to the brim with functionality.

However, it's not enough to match a competitor feature for feature anymore. You have to provide quality hardware and a good user experience, and sadly, the N97 falls a bit short in those departments with an inferior resistive touch screen and clunky user interface. The steep $700(46000 Tk BDT) price tag doesn't help either. While the Nokia N97 might appeal to Symbian and N series loyalists, it faces a steep uphill battle against the aforementioned touch-screen smartphones.


From a design standpoint, the Nokia N97 isn't exactly a showstopper. It doesn't quite have the wow factor of the distinctive Palm Pre and like the T-Mobile G1 and HTC Touch Pro2, the N97 is a bit of a handful at 4.6 inches tall by 2.1 inches wide by 0.6 inch thick and 5.29 ounces. It also doesn't quite have the high-quality build of the Nokia E series and you are a bit weary of the flimsy battery cover, but overall, the smartphone has a solid construction and is a nice departure from the Nokia N95 and N96, especially with the addition of a touch screen and full QWERTY keyboard. So dont mind!

Similar to the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, the Nokia N97 has a resistive touch screen that measures 3.5 inches diagonally and shows off 16.7 million colors at a 640x360-pixel resolution. While clear and bright, but it's not quite as sharp as the competitors, such as the HTC Touch Diamond2, and the built-in accelerometer has just a bit of a lag when switching from portrait to landscape mode or vice versa.Alas! The handset also features a proximity sensor so it will automatically turn off the display when you lift the smartphone to your ear for a phone call.

It's great to finally have a touch screen that can play up on all the capabilities of the N series, but we feel like Nokia didn't quite take full advantage of the situation.

The scrolling experience was also less smooth on the N97 since flicking your finger to go through long lists or pages results in jerky and short movements. In addition, like the Nokia 5800, you found that some menu items respond to a single tap, while others require double-taps. All that said, we do appreciate the new widget-based home screen on the Nokia N97. Similar to the Samsung TouchWiz interface found on the Omnia, this feature gives you the freedom to customize the N97's home screen and lets you see more information at a glance as well as have one-touch access to your apps.

You can have a maximum of eight widgets on the screen at one time, and it's easy to remove or rearrange them. By default, our review unit's home screen featured widgets for Facebook, AccuWeather, contacts, a shortcut bar to messages, the Web, maps, the media player, and more. There is a task manager that lets you see all your open apps and switch between them, but the multitasking capabilities are nowhere near as sophisticated as the Palm Pre's. However, we do prefer Nokia's interface over TouchWiz since it had better organization and didn't limit you to certain widgets.

You can personalize your phone with various themes, wallpaper, and more. For a full menu of apps and phone settings, just press the small button below the display that sits to the left of the touch-sensitive Talk and End keys. The simple grid menu system is easy enough to understand. It may not seem like a big deal but these minor annoyances add up and make a difference when comparing to the other touch-screen devices--iPhone, Pre, T-Mobile G1, Google Ion--on the market.

Like the HTC Touch Pro2, the Nokia N97 has a slider design with a tilting screen. One nice thing about the display is that it can be opened and viewed at a slight angle by simply pushing the screen to the right side, much like the AT&T Tilt and the HTC Touch Pro2. Nokia really did a nice job with the slider design, as the gliding motion is very smooth and does not have the harsh, abrupt feel the other two devices have.

The angled screen is not only good for viewing videos and apps but also messaging. However, the Nokia N97's QWERTY keyboard has been a hot topic of debate on the Web; most either hate it or love it. Individual buttons are a good size with enough spacing between them that mispresses were few. The keys also have a nonslippery texture and provide good, tactile feedback.

However, there are a couple of things that really put a damper on things. You should really liked the N97's QWERTY keyboard, except for the awkward placement of the space bar and shift key. For whatever reason, Nokia placed the space bar and shift key on the far right side . There's a directional keypad on the left side that takes up some room but even so, the space bar could have been placed more in the center like a regular keyboard. Instead, the location of the buttons completely threw us off and interrupted our flow. We got used to it eventually, but we still never felt 100 percent comfortable with the layout.Many people considered N97's QWERTY keyboard was one of the best ones on a smartphone.

If you need to enter a short amount of text, there is a soft keyboard that you can use instead of opening up the keyboard. You'll be doing a multitap dance with this option though since it's in alphanumeric format instead of a full QWERTY.

There are power button and 3.5mm headphone jack on top of the device.

On the left side there are a Micro-USB port, a lock switch, and the stereo speakers. The right side has a volume rocker that also doubles as zoom in/out buttons and a camera capture key. The camera is located on the back and both the lens and flash are protected by a sliding cover.

The Nokia N97 are packed with a travel charger, a Micro-USB cable, a wired headset, a stylus, a cleaning cloth, software CD, and reference material. For more add-ons, please check our cell phone accessories, ringtones, and help page.


Nokia N97 is one feature-packed smartphone. It comes with huge 32GB of internal flash memory, which can be expanded to 48GB via the expansion slot!

Nokia also preloads the device with a number of extra apps, including a dedicated YouTube player, Qik which for sharing videos from your phone, Boingo Wi-Fi service, Psiloc World Traveler, AP News, and Guitar Rock Tour. The N97 also supports the recently launched Nokia Ovi Store where users can peruse the large catalog of Symbian apps and download them to the device, QuickOffice for viewing Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents, Adobe PDF, a file manager, and other PIM tools, such as a Zip manager, a calculator, a notepad, a measurement converter, a clock, and a voice recorder.

The Nokia N97 already offers 32GB of internal flash memory but you can expand storage even more via the microSD expansion slot on the back.
The N97 doesn't come with the new Nokia Messaging app like the Nokia E75, but no problem,there's still plenty of e-mail support. The smartphone can synchronize with Microsoft Exchange and it works with Lotus Notes, IMAP4, POP3, and SMTP accounts and comes with a hasfull attachment viewer. Unfortunately, there aren't any instant messaging clients on the phone, which is too bad when you are given the full QWERTY keyboard and all.

As a phone, the N97 offers quad-band world roaming, a speakerphone, speed dial, conference calling, voice-command support, a vibrate mode, and text and multimedia messaging obviously. The phone's address book is only limited by the available memory, and the SIM card holds an additional 250 contacts. There's room in each entry for multiple phone numbers, work and home addresses, e-mail addresses, birthday, and more vitals. For caller ID purposes, you can edit each contact a photo, a group ID, or a custom ringtone. Bluetooth 2.0 is also onboard, with support for mono and stereo Bluetooth headsets, hands-free kits, audio/video remote control, object push, dial-up networking, file transfer, and more. To get online, you can use either the phone's integrated Wi-Fi or tri-band HSDPA (850/1900/2100MHz).

Nokia's HTML Web browser is quite decent, offering various page views, keyword search, and Flash Lite 3.0 support, but navigation and zooming in/out of pages definitely feels clunkier than the iPhone and Pre, which benefit from a multitouch screen.

For navigating the streets, the Nokia N97 has standalone and assisted GPS, so it uses both satellites and cellular triangulation to find your position. The smartphone also comes preloaded with the Nokia Maps and has a built-in compass so the map will automatically orient itself to the direction you are headed to. For real-time, turn-by-turn voice-guided directions, you'll need to upgrade the application, but Nokia is now offering a complimentary three-month trial of the walk and drive turn-by-turn service. Afterward, you'll have several purchase options, which you can check out here.

The N97 features the same 5-megapixel camera as the Nokia N96.

The N97 keeps the same camera and the N96: a 5-megapixel camera with a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens with dual-L.E.D. flash, auto focus, and up to 4x digital zoom. There are numerous advanced camera options, such as color tone, light sensitivity, exposure, and geotagging. In addition, the camera can record MPEG-4 videos at a maximum VGA resolution (640x480) @ 30fps.

Picture quality are very impressive.Picture quality was crisp and clear. Objects were sharply defined in the image, and we were happy colors were vibrant and rich instead of washed out. Recorded videos looked better than other smartphones we've tested, though it was still slightly murky. Once done with your photos, you can add tags, save them as a contact image, share them with friends and family via multimedia message or e-mail. In addition, you can upload to a service like Flickr or Ovi.

As with Nokia's other N series devices, the N97 is also equipped with a built-in media player that supports MP3, WMA, AAC, AAC+, and eAAC+ files. The music library categorizes tracks by artists, albums, genres, and composers; you can also create playlists right on the phone and adjust the sound with the built-in equalizer. There's also support for Internet radio and an FM tuner. If you'd like to watch other videos, you can use RealPlayer to check out 3GPP and MPEG-4 files.

While all these features are great, the biggest downfall of the N97 might be the Symbian OS. The OS might have been passable when the smartphone was first announced in December 2008, but it feels completely outdated now, especially in light of the progress made with Google Android and the iPhone OS 3.0 and the introduction of Palm Web OS, and it's not optimized for a touch interface.

N97's call quality is excellent and it works in the quad-band (GSM 850/900/1800/1900; tri-band HSDPA 850/1900/2100) in San Francisco . You enjoye clear audio on our end with good volume and very little to no background noise. But you didn't have quite the same quality for the speakerphone. Even at the highest level, volume was weak, we had to hold the speaker close to our ear to hear your friends, and our callers said we also sounded soft. In addition, audio would occasionally cut out. Given that the speakerphone didn't produce the best results, you weren't surprised when songs sounded soft and hollow when played through the speakers. Fortunately, the N97 is equipped with a 3.5-millimeter headphone jack so we were able to plug in our Bose On-Ear Headphones and enjoy better sound quality.

The smartphone's GPS capabilities were decent. From a cold start, it took the N97 about 10 minutes to find out your location when subsequent starts were much faster, taking less then 2 minutes. And Using Nokia Maps, it was able to track closely your movements and provided accurate directions.
The Nokia N97 comes with a 1500mAh lithium ion battery with a rated talk time of 95 hours (GSM)/6 hours (3G) and up to 17.9 days (GSM)/16.6 days (3G) of standby time.

Nokia N97’s Key features are-
• Slide-n-tilt 3.5" 16M-color resistive touchscreen of 640 x 360 pixel resolution also having Accelerometer sensor for auto-rotate
