Here are couple photos taken with Nokia N97 and iPhone 3GS:
The Nokia N97 takes 5MP photos while the iPhone 3GS takes 3MP photos. All the photos in this post are resized, click to enlarge.
iPhone 3GS photos are the left ones, Nokia N97 - right ones.
As for geotagging it was turned on for both devices. The iPhone 3GS successfully geotagged all 8 photos while the Nokia N97 was only able to geotag 2 of the 8 photos. The SIM card was in the Nokia N97, while the iPhone was in offline mode. A possible explanantion is that the GPS signal on the Nokia N97 is weak as discussed on Nokia’s forums.

Nokia owns half of the world's Symbian based phones market. However Nokia, in order to "compete with the iPhone", has decided to invest all the forces in a new system, replacing the classic Symbian: Linux.
Some sources have claimed that Nokia will present its first high-end phone based on Maemo, a version of Linux for mobile devices, at Nokia World next week in Stuttgart, Germany.
Officially, however, Nokia has decided not to submit any news or devices with this new system out soon.
- Nokia 2.06mm (or 2mm)
- Nokia 3.5mm

Now why you'd ever be carrying around all of these devices at once, we cannot explain.
The arrival of TomTom in AppStore is becoming ever more closely. But in the next few days a new application comes to AppStore, known on Nokia, Windows Mobile and Laptop: we are talking about the Navmi. Let's watch the video:
AdMob published it's June report, showing detailed statistics about smartphone market. As for iPhone 54% of iPhone OS devices are currently in the US; however, this number has slowly declined from 61% in the last six months, implying that international users are growing faster than those in the US. Following the US, the United Kingdom, Germany, and France each have over 5% of users. As a region, Western Europe has a 26% share of iPhone and iPod touch users.
Based on Apple guidance, the company has shipped 26.4 million iPhones and approximately 18.6 million iPod touches to date.
Here is a table, that shows the number of iPhones by country:
Here's some interesting statistics about smartphone traffic. Sounds like Apple is looking quite good in both the US and the rest of the world:

Generator Research says that Nokia's smartphone marketshare will plummet from over 40 percent today to only 20 percent by 2013. They predict that, on the other hand, will hit 33 percent marketshare by that point, matching Nokia sometime in 2011—just two years away—with 77 million phones.
That scenario, though, depends on some awesome conditions for Apple (think about 77 million iPhones!) on top of some truly horrific ignorance from Nokia, letting the smartphone market go almost entirely with a half-assed defense of its position as it focuses on profits from its mass volume low-cost wares in developing countries. Probably Nokia will stop making smartphones like the N97 some day and will create something nice.
Эти два видео представляют интересное сравнение Nokia N97 и iPhone 3GS. Michael Sharlock тестирует скорость браузера. iPhone3GS здесь является победителем, но в то же время в нем нету поддержки flash. Во втором специалисты Mobile Magazine делают общее ставнение двух устройств.
The Boy Genius has reported two new screenshots of the iPhone firmware 3.0. They show the integration of a magnetometer on the next model of iPhone.
The magnetometer (compass) is a sensor that detects the Earth's magnetic field. It will be particularly useful when used together with GPS and navigation software. Here's a video that shows magnetometer work on a Nokia N97:
According to a
Nokia leads the market with 38.6% share with Samsung in a distant second with 16.2%. Apple’s closest rival RIM (Research in Motion) is slightly ahead of Apple with 1.9%.
You can name it as one more iPhone clone or iPhone killer. Anyway, this is going to be a nice phone.
I think these videos will describe this new phone much better than the words:
