As we have seen and heard from the other blogs like engadget and GsmArena, the N97 Mini turns out not very different from the Nokia N97, it cant even be termed as a mini interms of its dimensions. Maybe we can call it N97 8GB version and the original N97 as N97 32 GB version, just the way Nokia called the N95 and N95 8GB.
It is kind of disappointing to see the supposed to be mini version, not making much changes in looks. But the cost of the N97 mini is expected to be less than the original N97 and hence allowing more users to enjoy the product.
We observed three primary differences between N97 and N97 mini they are
* N97 Mini has 8GB inbuilt memory against N97’s 32 GB.
* N97 Mini has a smaller battery and hence less talk time and standby by 20%
* N97 Mini has lost few mm in width and thickness. Below is comparison of N97 and N97 Mini in terms of dimensions.
Nokia N97 mini – 113 x 52.5 x14.2 mm
