Here is a video tour of the new Nokia N97

Nokia N97 not only offers features both iPhone 3G fans and BlackBerry consumer users enjoy -- a touchscreen display, full QWERTY keyboard and hefty video and music support -- but it expands on those capabilities with an "always on" browser window and advanced social networking and messaging services.

Calling it the "world's most advanced mobile computer," Nokia (NYSE: NOK) debuted its latest high-end device today at the annual Nokia World event in Barcelona, Spain. The 3G device retails for approximately $700 U.S. and will be available in Europe in mid-2009.

Nokia's latest offering is set to give Apple's handset a run for its money when it hits the shops early next year. It has a touch screen and a QWERTY keypad to make web browsing and email easy, and it trounces the iPhone when it comes to memory – the N97 has 32GB of on-board memory which can be boosted to 48GB with a microSD card. It also supports the Nokia Music Store and will even show Flash videos.
