The phone is powered with the Android version 2.0 and is expected to show a noticing leap in the over all performance as compared to other android mobile phones.

  • It possesses 256MB RAM and 512MB ROM.
  • Screen: 3.7 inch touch screen with a resolution of 480 x 854. It is not a multi- touch screen, a point worth noting.
  • Keyboard: It sports both a physical and an onscreen QWERTY keyboard. The sleek slide out physical keyboard has a toggle bar similar to RIM’s Blackberry trackball where as there are no enhancements in the onscreen keyboard.
  • Camera: It is coupled with a 5 megapixel camera having 4X zoom, dual LED flash, automatic focus, image stabilization, real-time colour effects, scene modes, location tagging, and videos can be captured at 740 x 380 resolution, upto 24fps and playback up to 30fps.

Posted on 05 September 2009 by Ritz

 Nokia with miniature N97

Here comes Nokia with miniature N97, not that it is miniature in any of the major performance parameters. In Nokia world, 2009, a conference in Stuttgart, Germany, Nokia disclosed its plans to launch N97 mini in October. This one is another addition to Nokia’s touch screen portfolio.  And the buzz around is – what is it in N97 Mini which is not present in N97 and vice versa. 







Let’s try to get an answer to this question by having a look at features the new N97 Mini exhibits: 

  • The most striking add-on is the software on which N97 mini is going to run. The usual Symbian S60 OS will be running with user interface improvements like flick scrolling, more home widgets and more social networking tools.
  • The first of its kind is the addition of, Lifecasting with Ovi (a partnership with facebook). This program gives user, the liberty to post their location, update their status, photos on facebook, directly from the device homescreen.
  • It will have new Ovi maps loaded in it, where contents will be accessible from Lonely Planet, Michelin and Wcities.
  • The dimension of N97 mini is 4.4 inches x 2 inches x 0.5 inches where as N97 measures 4.6 inches x 2.1 inches x 0.6 inches.
  • N97 mini weighs 138 g, slightly lighter than N97 which weighs 150g.
  • It has a 5 Mega pixel, 4x zoom, 640 x 480 video recording resolution, 30fps recording frame rate, Carl Zeiss camera which is as good as N97 but is accompanied with more features like Geo-tagging, video stabilization.
  • It will support RealVideo and Flash Lite 3.0.
  • It sports a 3.2 inches inclined resistive touch screen as compared to N97’s 3.5 inches screen.
  • It possesses 8 GB of memory expandable to 24GB with an addition of 16GB  microSD card while N97 has 32 GB of memory.
  • The stand-by time is as long as 12 days and music playback in offline mode is 28 hours.
  • This is accompanied with a QWERTY keyboard, with no D-Pad(directional pad) which was present in its predecessor, N97.
  • It is a Wi-fi, Bluetooth, and Quadband ( 850/900/1800/1900 MHz) GSM


Some drawbacks:  

  • The smaller keyboard, which makes typing difficult.
  • There is no camera lens cover which makes the camera vulnerable to dust, scratches and finger prints.
  • There is no North American 3G Bands support. 

This high end phone will cost $639 approximately, definitely not a miniature to N97 in this aspect, which costs around$700 Lets see it impresses how many and it will be interesting to keep a watch on N97 vs N97 mini battle.

Lets watch it more before you decide to go for it.
