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.

  1. This is for real. I work for an operator and had my hands on one recently. I much prefer the N97 though.

  2. mini or wateva sucks.. it looks so cheap.. No wonder stupid Nokia will put a better spec in tis one.. don no y nokia’s so immature!

  3. It looks compact and sleek, and those for whom 8GB memory is enuf, wil go after this. price wil be a major factor as usual.

  4. the Nokia N97 features a large 3.5 inch display with a resolution of 640 X 360 at 16.7 million colors. now that is an impressive video display capability isnt it?
