Video: I'm an iPhone and I'm an N97 - smartphone smackdown!

iPhone vs N97

Smartphones have taken us by storm and none more so than the iPhone. You can’t walk through the street without someone bumping into you because their eyes are glued to their 3 and a half inches of technological wonder.

The main pluses are that the Apple iPhone is cool, good user interface, great apps and iTunes while the Nokia N97 has a full qwerty keyboard, 32GB hard disk (expandable to 48GB), great battery life (you can remove the battery) and a 5 megapixel camera.

I think my video (below) demonstrates what I think of the two phones and what the general feel is in the market and among iPhone and N97 users.

So, is the iPhone the best phone out there? Well, it’s biggest threat seems to be coming from Nokia with their flagship N97 which may pack a mean punch but it’s the apps store that makes the iPhone so addictive.

Below is a Nokia N97 vs. Apple iPhone 3g comparison chart that, on paper, makes the N97 a sure fire winner with up to 48gb hard disk, a full qwerty keyboard and better battery life. But it’s the ease of use where the iPhone excels and this is further backed up by it’s huge apps library.

Don’t get me wrong I think the N97 is a great phone, I have one, the hardware is superior and it’s cheaper.

The chart doesn’t inlcude all the features that the two operating systems offer, but most of the bases are covered.  You can change the phones by clicking clicking the cross next to the phone and picking your phone from the drop down box.

According to recent estimates, the iTunes App Store has had a successful IOS 250,000 applications, the Android Market were sitting comfortably in the middle, with 80,000 titles, and the BlackBerry App World recently broke 10,000. Obviously, if the user activity is high, developers are more interested in entering the App Store
I'll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
