Description

N97 mini is a more compact alternative to the N97. As a whole, the device is the same (you still get the tilting mechanism of the display), only a bit smaller. There are some cosmetic changes to the design though, with the most significant one seemingly being the lack of both a D-pad on the keyboard and a sliding camera cover.

  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
