All leads to question which to buy; N97 or N900

We bring price comparation.

N97 (Amazon) (ebay.co.uk) (ebay.com) (store.nokia.com)

To be fair, the N97 has been given a significant boost from Nokia in the form of a new firmware update that puts right many of its failings. But even with that, the N900 is simply leagues ahead of it in every way.

But remains question why Nokia have decided to release both phones when they’re seemingly competing with one another. We think that is because of different platforms, N97 with Symnian, N900 with Maemo 5. Especially in this segment, when comparing, you can find the most differences.

If you’re the type of person who wants a great Web browsing experience in a smartphone that can better most of those on the market, both in terms of features and power, then go for the Nokia N900.
