>> I'm Maggie Reardon with CNET News and I'm here today at Nokia Capital Markets in New York City and I've got the N97 right here in my hand. This is the first time we're getting a look at it and this is a really cool new smartphone from Nokia. It's got a touchscreen as you can see and a QWERTY keypad that sort of slides out and one of the really cool things with this phone is it's got 32 gigabytes of storage. You can add another 16 gigabytes of storage on top of that so that's surpassing the iPhone by leaps and bounds. It's got a 5-megapixel camera with a DVD quality video that it can take. One of the other really cool features of this phone is that it has assisted GPS that also has a compass in it and sort of aligns the phone with the map that you're looking at, so that's another really cool feature. If you could tell me a little about, you know, what's so cool about this phone, what's different about it?
>> It's really designed for the people who love to be on the net, you know, 24/7.
>> What makes this phone different from say the N95 that we've seen? I see it has a touchscreen. Can you tell us a little bit about the touchscreen and how that works and how that's different maybe than from some of the other competition that's out there?
>> This is a device that whenever I open it up, I see my home screen that has my applications for social networking communities, my email, my stocks and all of that. For example, the personalization of the home screen again, which is I think very unique in trait. So you know you just drag and drop and obviously, you know, great connectivity from the wireless LAN to HSDPA, you know Bluetooth stereo, USB 2.0, TV-out, you know FM transmitter if you want to.
>> The phone is gonna be available globally in the first half of '09 and it's gonna sell for 550 euros unsubsidized. This is Maggie Reardon with CNET News.
