Nokia N97 Mini is all set for India launch and is expected to be announced very shortly (as early as November 16th).
N97 Mini offers 8GB of storage (expandable upto 24GB), 3.2-inch touchscreen and full QWERTY keyboard into its 14.2mm thin frame, supports Lifecasting (partnership with Facebook) and will be priced around Rs. 20,000-25,000.
Significant Difference between Nokia N97 Mini and Nokia N97
- Compact (113 x 52.5 x 14.2 mm, 75 cc vs 117.2 x 55.3 x 15.9 mm, 88 cc)
- Lighter (138g vs 150g)
- Display Size (3.2″ vs 3.5″)
- internal memory (8GB vs 32GB)
N97, N97 Mini and the next big bet, i.e. N900 are all available (N900 will soon be available) in the market; and Nokia, it seems is too confused about the product launch,feature differentiation and ofcourse, pricing.
So far, Nokia hasn’t yet perfected the smartphone market and the attempt to aggressively launch product hasn’t done any good to the company (N97, after a shoddy start saw real improvement with the latest 2.0 upgrade).
What’s your take? Will you go for N97 Mini or wait for N900?
