At CES over the weekend, I got a brief demo of the N97, the smartphone that Nokia officially announced last month. The phone will be released in Europe the first half of this year, and should be stateside sometime after that.

Its biggest draws: 32 gigabytes of storage, expandable to 48 GB with a memory card, and a five megapixel camera. The iPhone 3G, by contrast, has up to 16 GB of memory, with a two megapixel camera. The N97 also supports Flash, unlike the iPhone.

So is it an iPhone killer? At a price of 550 Euros ($736), probably not. But take a look, and tell us what you think.
