Yeah, the N97 is all sorts of awesome. The screen itself is mindboggling, and the dual input system (touch + qwerty k/b) really seals the deal.
I am still inseparable from My E71, but it's beginning to feel a bit...plain.
The N97 seems like the killer combo of E+N series devices. Definitely on my shopping list. I was looking forward to the 5800, but I think I'll skip that and wait for the N97.
