What features would you like to see in future N97 FW updates?

Yes, I know many people will say they want the phone to be more stable, smoother, have a new UI and whatnot... but I'm talking about new plausible features that would make the phone a little more fun to use. What do you have in mind?

I'll get us started... how about widescreen photographs?

Think about it... we have widescreen video recording on our N97s, so why not widescreen photography? To produce a widescreen video, the N97 simply records at it's normal quality and size and then chops off the top and bottom (and some may rightly argue there's a little digital zooming going on as well). The same technique could be used to full effect with still photos, especially those of distant landscapes.

There currently is a way to make widescreen photos directly on our phones, but it's a lengthy procedure (open photo, edit it, rotate 90, crop with wallpaper aspect ratio, rotate 270, save), so I for one would like to see it done automatically in the Camera application. It can't be hard to implement, surely...

I've attached a couple of photos to show what I mean. These are photos taken with my N97 at Cheshire Zoo that have been cropped (not resized) in Photoshop to a 16:9 aspect ratio.
