A preview of the N97 Mini reveals the device is not worth it
There´s been quite a hype over the smaller sibling of the Nokia N97 in the last months. The preview made by Mobile-Review gives more detailed information about the features and overall look of the device. It reveals that the advantages of the Mini version of the phone are its metal battery cover, high quality of workmanship, kinetic scrolling and smaller size. The shortcomings are its less handy keyboard, the lack of protective camera cover and decreased amount of memory (8GB). According to Eldar Murtazan with Mobile-Review, the difference in the prices will probably be around 100 EUR. Moreover, he hints at other Nokia models equipped with touch-sensitive screens that will come featuring pretty much the same functionality as the N97 Mini and the recently announced 5800 Navigation Edition, only all functions will be implemented better.

What do you think the new Nokia models would be like? Are you of the opinion that the product lineup needs a new look or it´s about time Nokia revised the operating system itself?
