Remember Nokia’s N97, the smartphone the company hyped in December of last year?  Today, the cell phone maker announced a June launch of the handset, which will occur simultaneously in 75 countries.  We’re also hearing that the phone will cost about $700 in the US market, although we haven’t been able to verify that, with the exception of this Expansys page.  During the initial roll out the N97 will be unlocked and completely unsubsidized, so start saving your hard earned greenbacks now.

Of note, it looks like that June 2nd ship date we heard about back in May was in fact the announce date.

Update: Amazon has it up for $603.99 and it looks like it will ship on June 25th!  Thanks, commenter!
