When Nokia N96 surfaced at the beginning of this year, we made a recap of its concepts in order to see what we’ve gained and what we missed from the new device. Now, we take a look back at the N97 concept below and we see that it’s not such a hot device, mostly resembling the N95:

Things changed shortly afterwards, when we stumbled upon Nokia N98, a superb concept device (below), this Spring. At that time we were talking N Series coollness, a 7.2 megapixel camera, 5x optical zoom, a 3.5 inches touchscreen display, GPS, HSDPA and what not.

Pause! Skip a few months, witness a Nokia Tube launch and here we are: December 2nd… Nokia World 2008… Nokia N97 (pictured below) makes its triumphal debut, surpassing every expectation. It’s got a 3.5 inches touchscreen, a QWERTY keyboard, the OVI platform on board, a 5 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss Tessar Lens and 32GB of internal memory.

    The requirment in these kind of Nokia is always High performance Camra.Because before we used all Nokia phones but lack of enough memory they were not complicated and we were not able to cover all the task which we wanted to picturize by using usual Nokia cameras.Now as it looks that what we want we found and the camera shoulk be a complicated camera.
