July 1 Nokia N97 Firmware Update Can't Fix That Keyboard

Illustration for article titled July 1 Nokia N97 Firmware Update Cant Fix That Keyboard

The recently released Nokia N97 has been drowned, put on a diet and was unlucky enough to share its launch with the Palm Pre and iPhone 3GS. We still thought it was "quite good," and now it's getting new firmware.

However, that said there is as of yet no nanotechnology update process available to us that will physically fix that keyboard. You know, the one with the space bar placed precariously toward the far right extreme of the typing area?

Seriously, if this were in my hands and I was firing off a text in the heat of the moment after six pints or so at the local Irish pub I frequent, my message on the other side would probably look like a viral marketing campaign for that cheesy V remake coming to TV this fall. [Nokia via BGR]

And N97 runs really nicelly [www.topzone.lt] Faster than Win Mobile and in most cases iPhone, even N97 hardware are not as powerful as iPhone, but OS runs faster anyway, because it's more optimized. :)

I totally don't have problems with spacebar, the most important thing that the buttons are soft and responsible, so it's best QWERTY I've had yet.
