  • lol… Nokia N97 still new in the market. It takes time to be perfect. Looking forward for further versions in future day. Anyway, one thing should be cheer up is it seems like lot of bugs and errors are fixed in this version. 🙂

    Jason, yeah man, same feeling, Nokia knew these bugs before N97 got released, They just pull up a big marketing events around the world to cover all up.
    I updated the N97 Hong Kong Black version. Still the small bugs Nokia even oversee, the Alarm bug for example, this is so minor, it still got off 4 minutes later than programmed.
