You will be able to add up to 6 favourite widgets on the main screen and you can even arrange them according to your preference (see screen shot below). All widgets will load automatically if you have an active data plan or you are hocked up with a wireless (WiFi) network.

Some of the applications in N97 are specially developed with the collaborations between Nokia and 3rd parties such as Facebook, Bloomberg, Reuters, etc. How thoughtful that is!

Besides, it seems Nokia N97 has brought social-networking a new level where you will be always connecting with your friends, colleagues and family via all sorts of social-networking applications, such as Facebook, Friendster, Hi5, Flickr, etc. This concept is exactly in conjunction with Nokia’s motto – Connecting People, isn’t it? 😀

Yea, I know you probably will say with an integrated browser on any other phone, all these social-networking sites can be loaded, but believe me you can do more with the applications come with N97.

With N97, news and rss feeds will be automatically grabbed from all provided sources and displayed on the main screen. Basically, you’ll get updated with whatever information you wish to receive without doing anything, literally!

Below is the screen shot of the software menu of N97 :-

Well, I should have shown you the dial menu in the first place but I got carried away writing about the widgets and applications. Haha… Anyway, here it is :-
