Yup, I believe that is the fake china version not a mini n97. Kinda funny it got passed this reputable cellphone website.
its so made in china. i have never seen nokia ever made MINI of its phones.. you should see n95 mini lool its so cute or n96 mini. its like kids phones.. but this one look at the back of the phone.. the build quality is CHEAP..
Well, if it's anything like its big brother. Then I dont think I will bother. The N97 must break the world record for the worst mobile device ever made.
Nokia have taken beta testing on the public to new levels. How many software bugs????
i hope it's a chinese fake, because nokia doesn't need a clone of a successful model, and neither do the users.
I'm not sure how much lower specced than the N97 they could make it. Maybe this one will have a 5MHz processor.
Its a complete fake...no dpad. means no possibility if scrolling..is dat possible in a cell phone..?..nd moreover d name of d company lets considr NOKIA only is right on the top of the lcd whereas now NOKIA is putting its logo on the side of the lcd and that too verticall not straight at all..
its jus a fake 97 by China...not a smaller verison of original vcos if nokia intends to deliver such a product they will not make any diffrnces in the form factor bt give different specifications like smaller memory,less powered camera, n etc like iPhone,iPhone3g,iPhone3gS in different memry sizes...
I have used dis fake N97 lyke 1000 tymes...its available in United Arab Emirtaes for arnd 500DHS..arnd 280$......itss fake!!
This is the fake N97 made my china.Its jst same as orignal n97 but smaller in size and it doesnt have tht D-pad which orignal n97 have on its left side.
n97 is very expensive..that will be nice if nokia launch another n97 with not expensive price..
It may be surprising if Nokia were solely to fill the gap in the upper mid end with a qwerty slider, and this site is right to question why Nokia would want another qwerty in that segment. I would expect Nokia to be preparing the launch of a new N series device in the same touchscreen form factor as the 5800 but with similar specifications to the N86. Another question is whether the E series is likely to launch a touch screen based device to complement its range.
Could these be pictures that are potentially either a fake or leaked to test market sentiment?
Anonymous, 30 Jul 2009This phone could be a real good seller if it's come out. It could be put as top E series devic... moreThis is a Fake there is no such thing as N97 mini...
look carefully at the picture...
you are right my friend this is Fake....
look at the reflection on the lcd of the n97 mini (as called) and the N97. its like the mini one has been made by photoshop and merged in the picture next to the real N97...
IT IS FAKE
allen, 30 Jul 2009i belive it going to be called little italy and coming out before xmasActually nokia really need to refresh all their model now.
All their model were not interesting compare to competitor.
don't treat this a a flame, i'm a nokia fans, use nokia
1. samsung (or is it lg) have a US$200 touch screen device. nokia should throw their cheap touch screen fast.
2. The E-series user doesn't have anything with big screen (16:9). all were small screen device. (The E-90 were already aging).
