The phone offers a feature Nokia describes as ‘social location’. Here, the integrated GPS sensor and an electronic compass, enables the N97 mobile to understand where it is. According to Nokia, this makes it possible for users to tell their friends exactly where they are by updating social networks automatically with real-time geographical information.

Nokia claims the N97 can be used for browsing the web, streaming Flash videos or playing games. Equipped with both a physical QWERTY keyboard and virtual touch input the phone allows for efficiency in blogging, chatting, posting, sending texts or emailing, the company said.

The N97 device also has a 5-Megapixel camera and wide-screen video capture and playback. It supports both HSDPA and WLAN network access.
