Nokia world 2009 : Nokia N97 Mini release do make sense to many

Nokia N97 is really a great phone, and from the time its limited availability in early July 2009, Nokia has shipped nearly 2 million of devices ( as mentioned in Nokia world 2009 ). Nokia has sold nearly 10 million touchscreen phone in last 10 months with a portfolio of just two devices ( Nokia N97 and Nokia 5800 ). With the release of Nokia N97, it was a time for Nokia to get the feedback of the customer of what they liked and what they didnt like in the Nokia’s flagship model of 2009. Taking care of the consumer feedback, Nokia finally ended up creating a smaller version of Nokia N97 and hence, Nokia N97 mini was born.Nokia N97 mini

The major differences in Nokia N97 Mini are as follows :

  • 3.2" touchscreen compared to 3.5" touchscreen in Nokia N97
  • 8GB inbuilt memory compared to 32GB in Nokia N97
  • Different layout QWERTY keypad compared to Nokia N97
  • 1200mah battery compared to 1500mah battery to Nokia N97
  • No camera lens cover as compared to Nokia N97
  • Overall smaller size compared to Nokia N97
  • 450 Euro launch price compared to 550Euros for Nokia N97

Other specification:

  • 5 MP autofocus camera with Carl Zeiss optics
  • Bluetooth , wifi , GPS
  • Applications like OVI store and OVI lifecasting built in
  • Kinetic Scrolling in every menu
  • 640X480 screen resolution
  • Personalized home screen with Widgets
  • Dimensions: 113 x 52.5 x 14.2 mm
  • Weight: 138 g
  • Talk time: Up to 7.1 hrs
  • Standby time: Up to 320 hrs
  • Music playback time: Up to 28 hrs
  • Video playback time: Up to 3.5 hrs

With the release of Nokia N97 mini, Nokia has actually tried to get a portfolio of touchscreen lineup, where people of different age group, different taste and different basic needs are able to find a device which fit their lifestyle. However, again coming back to price, it do seem a little overprized, hence I would suggest people to wait for few weeks before buying this device where the price will consolidate around 400 to 450 USD .
