The Nokia N97 Mini Is Official – 450€ – Introduces Lifecasting

The Nokia N97 Mini was today made official during Nokia World ’09’s first keynote. The device closely resembles the N97 design with the exception of a 3.2″ touchscreen, a redesigned keypad (no Navi Pad, but directional arrows), no camera lens cover and 8GB of storage v/s the N97’s 32GB. The Mini is 14.2mm thin and the first Nokia device to sport Lifecasting with Ovi – a service in partnership with the world’s largest social network, Facebook.

Lifecasting enables users to update their Facebook status directly from the device’s homescreen, however the intersting part is that it doesn’t stop there and you can even update your location details, thus enabling a whole new level of social sharing and communication.

The N97 Mini will also be running a newer firmware with greater support for kinetic/flick scrolling amongst other things and the same firmware will be made available for the N97 as well in October. The device is expected to this in Q4 this year.

Is This The Nokia N97 Mini?

After a mention of the N97 Mini on Vodafone Ireland’s official forums the rumour mill has been abuzz with activity about a possible N97 Mini, however until today we hadn’t seen a picture/mockup that seemed even a little convincing.

Enter these images that are either the work of a very talented photoshop expert or infact real. From what we can see, the N97 Mini has:

  • A smaller 3.2″ inch screen
  • No D-pad but dedicated arrow keys on the right hand side.
  • No lens cover, this could be a blessing.

Word on the internet also has it that the ‘Mini’ will have 8GB of onboard storage and the same 5MP camera from the N97.

With Nokia World around the corner and the possibility of a Nokia Maemo tablet with a GSM radio announcement, the N97 Mini addition will surely make for an interesting September. As far as the impact on the N97 itself, I doubt it will be much as both devices will cater to a slightly different market (Mini = Cheaper) and the Mini (if real) will most likely ship after a few more months, giving the N97 enough time to find its feet.

As with all rumours, please take this with more than a pinch of salt.
