Nokia has just announced their N97 Mini, essentially a tinier version of its flagship N97 smartphone. This S60 5th Edition-powered handset is equipped with a 3.2″ resistive touchscreen display at 640 x 360 resolution, which can be augmented by a full-QWERTY sliding keyboard when you need to send those text messages out in a flurry. Available in quad-band GSM (850/900/1800/1900MHz) while boasting support for UMTS in two different tri-band configurations (850/1900/2100MHz and 900/1900/2100MHz) with HSDPA for high-speed connectivity, the N97 Mini will also feature Wi-Fi connectivity just in case there is no 3G access at that point in time. Other features include FM RDS radio support, a 5-megapixel autofocus camera with Carl Zeiss optics, aGPS, a microSD memory card slot and 8GB of internal memory. Arriving later this October for 450 Euros before taxes and subsidies, the Nokia N97 Mini should hopefully weed out some weaknesses found in the Nokia N97.
