Yet more news from Nokia World 09. Now we have confirmation and information about the brand-new Nokia N97 "Mini", slimmed down version of the current Nokia flagship smartphone. On the whole, it looks like a very solid compromise between power, cost, and size.
The mini has the same 8 GB of storage as its older brother. It sports a 3.2" touchscreen and a sliding QWERTY keyboard. The frame is 14.2" mm thin, and its battery supports up to 12 days of stand-by time and up to 28 hours of music playback. They neglected to release any information on how much call time we can get out of a battery charge.
The mini has a pretty nice camera. It's a 5 megapixel shooter with a dual LED flash, video light, and a Carl Zeiss Tessar lens. It also includes a 16 GB microSD card slot, which expands its total memory to a respectable 24 GB. Total cost for this smartphone looks to be about $640 in USD. That's quite a lot, but it will be substantially cheaper with a 2-year contract.
