As you might already know from our recent post about Incomm's Nokia N97 offer, the highly anticipated touchscreen phone is finally available in Brunei. After managing to get our hands on this super-cool device for just about a week, we believe that it's the most feature-packed, and most advanced phone Nokia has ever put out to the market.

So what makes the N97 truly in a class of its own from all other Nokia phones? Watch our Gadget,Ink Webcast below to get a brief look at some of the phone's functions that made us enjoy every second we've had with this device..

Gadget,Ink Webcast 004 - A brief first look at the Nokia N97

Notable Phone Specs:
* Slide-n-tilt 3.5" 16M-color resistive touchscreen of 640 x 360 pixel resolution
* 5 megapixel autofocus camera with dual-LED flash and lens cover (VGA@30fps video recording)
* Symbian OS 9.4 with S60 5th edition UI
* Slide-out three-row full QWERTY keyboard
* ARM 11 434MHz CPU and 128 MB of RAM
* Quad-band GSM support and 3G with HSDPA support
* Wi-Fi and GPS with A-GPS (plus 3 months of free voice-guided navigation via Ovi Maps)
* Digital compass
* Class-leading 32GB onboard storage
* microSD card slot with microSDHC support
* Built-in accelerometer
* 3.5 mm audio jack
* TV out
* Stereo FM Radio with RDS
* FM transmitter
* microUSB and Bluetooth v2.0
* Full Flash and Java support for the web browser
* microUSB v2.0 and Bluetooth v2.0
* Good audio reproduction quality

As you can see from the specs above and our video review, the N97 is packed with features that will let you stay connected where ever you go, but what makes it more exciting is that in the months to come, more and more 3rd party applications are expected to be released via Nokia's very own mobile applications store, the 'Ovi Store'. Nokia believes that this could be a solution that could rival Apple's superbly popular App Store.

The N97 does however come pre-installed with 'Guitar Rock Tour', a Guitar Hero-like game that rock fans will surely enjoy.

All in all, the N97 will be able to satisfy Internet-savvy individuals. The massive 32GB of internal memory too is more than enough for you to take your movies and music with you every where you go.

Nokia's flagship Nseries device also introduces leading technology, including multiple sensors, memory, processing power and connection speeds, making it a likely huge overall crowd pleaser.

This excellent smartphone is now available, in 'Transition Black' and white models at Incomm for an exclusive promotional price of just $970 when you present your DST Card from 19th June to 22nd June 2009 at its Abdul Razak Complex Gadong branch. Financing options are also available with HSBC, Standered Chartered Bank & Baiduri Bank all offering 0% installment plans.

Marul..is it possible if you can do a second webcast for n97 showing the calling feature and video call. Probably test how loud the loudspeaker can be as well? Maybe showing the experience on surfing the net using n97 too might be good. Overall great webcast..keep up the good work.

Thanks Ruslan. Actually we are are planning to do another webcast to give everyone a detailed view of the many functions and cool features of the N97 soon. Stay tuned ;)
