Well, Nokia surprised everyone with the touchscreen slider N97. It’s like an iPhone alike. But dare I say... better? I don't know, you judge. Nokia saw what people want nowadays and adapted it, applied in the new N97. After trying out their first touchscreen on the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, which I think it's not very stable cause it's the 1st ever touch scrren phone for Nokia.
