Nokia teased us yesterday and now, today, they’ve satisfied our touchscreen smartphone lust with the N97 Smartphone. Looking oh so N95, it features a slide out QWERTY keyboard, 3.5-inch touchscreen LCD, 32GB flash memory, micro SD slot (up to 16GB), A-GPS, 5MP camera with dual LED flash, HDSPA, WiFi, USB 2.0 and Blueooth. As for battery life expect 37 hours of music playback – yes, there is a 3.5mm headphone jack – 4.5 hours of video playback and it all runs on the S60 5th Edition backbone

No word on price or availability just yet, but we’ll do our best to keep you posted.

Update: It’ll launch the 1st half of 2009 and cost 550 Euros ($700 US)
