I received my N97 today and was well chuffed (i.e. happy).
Until now I had a SE 990i, which served its purpose and was showing it's age (web interaction to be more precise).
So now, as I said, I have a brand spanking new N97 and I'm ready to rock & roll ....
Yeah, right ...
My initial impressions compared to my "4 year old SE 990i":
1) Mail accounts: I have 6-7 mail accounts (mixed between private and business and a couple of aspects) and my new N97 says that I can only automatically retrieve from 2 accounts ? (Limit reached or something for the 3rd account). Nokia, do you really think that people are limited to 1 business + 1 private account ?
On my old phone I can add and update/load status of just about as many accounts as I configure.
2) Configuring the above accounts:
No option to copy/paste anything in the configure N97 Mail fields (sync mail, same userid, same password for IMAP & SMTP) stuff. I swear, it would have been awesome *IF* I could have copy/pasted at least the domain name, but funnily enough, the input fields have no "Option > Edit > Copy/Paste", so I had a load of fun with the keyboard re-entering what I had done before (many times).
3) Copy paste from a text file
Yeah, right, this is where it gets really stupid.
Consider a simple text file with a few user IDs + passwords, ready to copy/paste from "mydata.txt".
You open "mydata.txt" , get some kind of "Office warning" (its not like its a winword file) and can't select anything to paste (in to the above mentioned missing option) anywhere ....
Its a simple text file for gods sake, and the contents have things like a 20 character LAN access key.
After about 8 hours of N97, I think that for a professional user, there are a few things that HAVE to be sorted out.
Not being able to copy/paste as an application independent option for every input field (for selected text) being a prime candidate.
A very new (and very disappointed) N97 owner.
