The Nokia N97 is going to be the second touchscreen-enabled Symbian S60 device from Nokia. It will feature a sliding QWERTY keyboard, 32 GB of internal memory, a 5 megapixel camera, and a microSDHC memory card slot.

Wireless options will include quad-band GSM, HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS w/A-GPS. The version made for N. America will have the 3G frequencies used in this area.

The N97 is being sold in the U.S. directly to consumers, and therefore without a carrier subsidy. That’s why the pricetag is $700.
