Nokia have announced the N97, its flagship N-series S60 smartphone.  Including both a 3.5-inch 640 x 360 resistive touchscreen with haptic feedback and a full QWERTY keyboard, with a slide-and-tilt mechanism that brings the display up to a 30-degree angle.  The S60 OS has been further tweaked to better make use of touch input, bringing it up to version 5, and includes many of the 5800 XpressMusic's features such as the quick contacts bar and desktop widgets.
