Gizmodo Wants The iPhone Pro, AKA The Nokia N97

I came upon this post from Gizmodo, one of the leading technology blogs out there. They’re unabashedly huge fans of the iPhone, but thought of a few features/aspects that the current iPhone lacks, that they would like to see, and so they created the iPhone Pro.

Features of this desired ‘iPhone Pro’ include a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a high-resolution camera with flash and video capture, and a high-resolution widescreen (16:9) touchscreen display. They also want a front-facing secondary camera for vide0 chatting, and gobs of internal storage. Sounds great, right?

So great, in fact, that Nokia already designed it, and announced it a few weeks ago. It’s called the Nokia N97. It features a 3.5″ 16:9 widescreen display (bigger than the current iPhone’s, actually), stereo speakers, and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. It also packs a 5 megapixel autofocus camera with dual-LED flash and Carl Zeiss optics. The N97 can capture video at 640×360 resolution, which is somewhere between VGA and HD quality, I believe. It’s also got 32GB of internal storage, with a microSD card slot, so you can load up even more.

However, because they’re a leading publication, they can’t, not for a minute, admit that perhaps they desire a Nokia product over an Apple one. That would just be dorky, right?

  1. lol.. good joke.. šŸ˜‰ go get an iphone already, so that you at least can speak with some objectivity and credibility. so far, you are just parroting what all other blind nokia dopes are brabbling.. does not really make you more trustworthy as a blogger.

  3. Actually, I’ve had an iPhone – used one for nearly a month, both ‘factory’ and jailbroken. I’m familiar with the interface, and the experience, and I ultimately found it lacking, for my needs.

    Either way, their post was requesting a specific hardware design that already exists/has been announced. That’s my point. Thanks for chiming in, though.

    Now if your Iphone can do the same things I did SIMULTANEOUSLY, then you have a winner. Enjoy ; )

  11. @ N95-iphone – The iPhone is a great consumer device. It’s very simple to use, you can take low res pictures of your cat, and buy as many useless $1 apps as you like. And now you can even buy it at Walmart. But, if you want a mobile computer in your pocket, buy a Nokia. By the way I’d rather be a “Nokia Dope” thank an Apple zombie.
