Its official, we now know for sure when Nokia's ultra-powerful Nseries device, the N97 will be available. In just under three weeks, the handset that sports both a full touch-screen and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard will be available to buy from Nokia's Regent Street Store and at www.nokia.co.uk/shop for £499 SIM free. The following week the handset will be rolled out by 3, Orange, T-Mobile, Vodafone, Carphone Warehouse and Phones 4u, though currently there are no pricing plans available.

Other highlights of the device include A-GPS for your navigational needs, a massive 32GB of onboard memory, and a five-megapixel camera complete with dual LED flash.
