Nowadays Nokia are really into touchscreen smartphone portfolio. Nokia N97 mini (the actual name yet to announce) will be introduced most probably on the NokiaWorld09. The codename of “mini” were given due to its design and outlooks are very similar to the current Nokia N97 by smaller size.

Sizes have never been grievance for the Nokia N9X series although the size is big and bulky.
eg; the first launched of Nokia N95, it was criticism for it bulky size but the rich features compensate it all.

The appearance of the new N97 mini is a bonus to those who wanted to have a loaded features phone in a smaller and compact that fitted comfortably on our palm. The Nokia N97 mini has removed the non so-crucial parts but still performance well.

The reduction was the reduced screen size from 3.5” to 3.2”, the D-Pad has removed as the touchscreen would do the job and the internal memory size reduced from 32GB to 8GB with expandable memory slot for micro-SD.

Here’s are some specification of the Nokia N97 mini;

3.2” touchscreen.
Symbian S60 5th OS platform, the user interface are the same with current N97.
8GB Internal Memory with expandable memory slot micro-SD.
Restyled QWERTY keyboard layout and removed the D-Pad button.
5 Megapixels Carl Zeiss optic with dual LED flash.
Kinetic scrolling will be available.
A-GPS with Nokia Maps and Ovi Maps supported.

The most exciting thing is the price tag would be expected lower by 100 USD = 350 MYR compare with the current Nokia N97. A great deal I would say, what do you guys think? What name will be used for this model? N97i? N98?

Do leave your comments. Appreciated!
