Product: Nokia N97

Features: Full QWERTY keyboard and 3.5-inch touch screen sliding tilt display. Live personalized home screen with widgets, 32 gigabytes of onboard memory, two cameras -- one for video chat and the other is a 5-megapixel camera and video recorder with dual LED flash and video light.

Price: $629 at Nokia.com

Ups: The home screen widgets are great -- with a glance you can see the most recent friend status update, the subject line of a new e-mail or have a shortcut to call your best friend.

The keyboard is easy to use and has a directional pad, which comes in handy when it's too hard to navigate using the touch screen. And the camera is so beautiful it brings tears to my eyes every time I use it.

Downs: It crashes. It freezes. It stammers. It just wigs out sometimes and only loads half the screen. The application store has lots to choose from, but every other time I tried to download something it would freeze.

Bottom line: This really is a beautiful phone ... well, actually, Nokia markets this as a mobile computer since it's more powerful than your average phone. But what good is all the power if it's glitchy?

It's an unlocked phone, so you'll need a SIM card with a carrier like AT&T or T-Mobile to use this.
