Nokia N97 vs N86 Picture Gallery

If you’re curious about Nokia’s newest multimedia flagships, the Nokia N97 and N86, and undecided as to which one to get, or how they size up next to each other, then here is a nice picture Gallery for you. Many people have been wondering about the design and material quality of these new Nseries, given how cheap the old N96/N78/N85 family felt, but these images should let you feel assured that the newer line is much more elegant, solid, nice to the touch, and feels a lot more expensive in the hand. Another concern for some people has also been the size of the N97. Showing it next to the N86, a small pocketable dual-slider, proves that the N97 is a whole lot smaller in the hand than it is on the press release images.

The N97 of course is an S60 5th edition handset that boasts a humongous 3.5″ touchscreen with a qwerty keyboard, whereas the N86 is an S60 3rd Edition FP2 device that follows the N95’s dual-slider design, with a relatively small 2.8″ non-touch OLED screen and adds the awesome 8 MegaPixel wide-angle Carl Zeiss lens camera. The N86’s kickstand also allows you to put the N86 on a desk at almost the same angle as the N97’s screen when the hinge tilts, which shows in the pictures

Both handsets come with bluetooth, 3G, an FM-transmitter, GPS, TV-Out, a 3.5mm headset jack and microUSB charging. The N97 prides its 32GB internal memory, whereas the N86 only has 8GB of internal memory, both being expandable with a microSDHC slot.

Anyway, here is the Gallery for you to admire these two handsets side by side. As always, clicking on any image will take you to the full blown 12MP original picture.
