They wouldn't want to load the whole world maps on the device, it would use up too much memory
MichaelB: Heavenly_Wild, if the N97 you have is from Asia, then only the asian maps will be preloaded onto the phone, not New Zealand. So you can either let the network download the maps as you go like Googlemaps, or use the Maps loader application - to put all of NZ and up to 200 other countries onto the phone.
jjnz1:heavenly_wild: My good old N95 was able to play videos quite nicely when it was converted from the dvd so I am sure the N97 can too. It must be the quality you guys are talking about that is causing the videos to stutter. The screen is only so big so if you downsize the quality I am sure you won't notice it.
Your absolutely right, it does, just figured that a 2009 top model phone should be able to play avi's loaded straight from a computer, without converting.
I'm sure my pentium 75 could play full screen movies.
BrentR: A couple of my essential programs would be;
Nimbuzz (IM intergrator for Windows Live, Google, FaceBook, Skype etc)
Keylock Clock (Gives you a nice large clock on the screen when you press the menu key when the handset is locked)
