The Nokia N97 will be out on 19th June exclusively on Vodafone for a whole week before all but O2 get a look in. The RRP for the SIM free version is £499 or you can spread it over an 18-month contract for £40 per month making it one of the priciest smartphones available.

In its favour, the handset does just about everything you could want and includes the best camera by far in its class but, having had my hands on it, I’m not convinced that it’s enough of a draw to warrant the extra £5 or £10 per month over the likes of the iPhone and Android handsets. We wait to see what Palm and Toshiba come up with.
