The Nokia N97 Has Been Praised For Its Touchscreen Facilities

Shoppers looking to trade used phones in order to fund a new touchscreen device may be interested in a review for the Nokia N97.

Ricky Cadden of Mobile Burn was the latest expert to offer his opinion on the Finnish manufacturer's flagship model and noted a number of pros and cons.

He explained, although issues like slow processing when the gadget is running multiple applications were a problem, the five-megapixel camera did "a great job of capturing the moment".

Extra praise was offered for the 3.5-inch touchscreen display, which provides a 360 x 640 pixel resolution and is "much more sensitive than most resistive screens, resulting in an incredibly pleasant touch experience".

Nokia's N97 was released last month alongside another Nseries device - the N86 - and the Apple iPhone 3G.

Those looking for a more music-focused phone were told this week that the Sony Ericsson W995 would be available on the 3 Mobile network with three months free access to Sky Mobile TV.
