I think if you look precisely you can see that the both back and front side are really at low quality. I can't say it's not nokia but i know the difference between nokia's high end phones screen quality and chinese phones quality, it's surely the chinese quality in the photo, so it's a little bit nearer to fake than to be truth!
Sounds like a fake. Why would nokia release this device at all ?? It makes no sense.
kai en its not a nokla as the nokia n97 mini in pic above has no d pad witch the nokla n97 fake does
kai en, 31 Jul 2009N97 mini turned out to be a NOKLA. http://www.itechnews.net/2009/04/13/nokla-n97-nokia-n97-clone/No it's not Nokla on the photo, even the Nokla has a D-pad.
I think it's degraded one, just like nokia5530xm compare to nokia5800xm that the degraded one is mising GPS, smaller battery pack, no 3G data and camera, the n97 mini made have such degradation to, it's nokia principle to do this things!

Most likely a fake I think.. there are so many China knock-offs of popular handsets, some really identical and some not, that's most likely a picture of one of them. I think..
What a perfect idea, but please don't make a mistake as you did on E63 Vs E71. Make sure all the accessories that are in the big brother N97 are also in small brother N97 package.
Let me see, another N-device with:
- 2 years old too slow cpu
- too little memory
- very low resolution screen
- slow as molasses patched-together interim UI that even Nokia has admitted is just a placeholder till next year, when the real touch UI comes out
Who on earth would want to buy it?
I hope it dies a slow and painful death.
Nokia needs to come out with sexy, fast, modern and easy-to-use devices, not the same old cr*p that it's now trying to rehash.
Crap.... there is'nt such thing.... like mini nokia or something.... small screen phone... no ones going to like, mini is a gay type cell phone
saikoGenesis, 31 Jul 2009I just hope there is an upgrade for its RAM, increase in camera's resolution, and improved gra... moreAs for me I wish the price still a bit over nokia5800. N97 is too expensive and without a stylus. if 5800 came with good 5mp camera, I am ready to pay for that extra.
Hmm, hard to tell if this is fake. Not sure if this will be an N series or X series. One thing tho, the current N series design has the Nokia insignia inscripted vertically, on the edge (border) of the phone and always on the right hand side (looking at the phone vertically). This design feature started with the N79. Fake or not fake that is question.
that is mini?? hahaha go and watch Austin Power and you will know what does a mini look like.
The mini N97 does not have camera cover... it sounds like they downgrade the camera quality.
let's hope it worth the price cut.
3araby, 31 Jul 2009the fake chinese version looks like this:
http://www.itechnews.net/2009/04/13/nokla-n97-nokia... morelook at the button layout i don't think it's fake but they shouldn't make a smaller one that's a waste cause the buttons will be even smaller XD
but it's funny since alot of people say it's a bad phone
if it was they wouldn't make a smaller version
just like the 5800
the fake chinese version looks like this:
I just hope there is an upgrade for its RAM, increase in camera's resolution, and improved graphics. I doubt it will be changed to capacitive touchscreen. need to improve graphics, because the big N97 looks just like a 5800 with qwerty keyboard. SLOW and boring... IMHO.
Anonymous, 30 Jul 2009It looks like something erect !. the best Nokia can give gays to use in emergency !don't speak nonsense please!
