Anonymous, 23 Jun 20105800 has update version 50
this phone only at 11The n5800xm device is older release, the n97mini is built with minimum bugs, that's why it does not need to be updated that often!
As for screen brightness, i guess it was meant to be like that with it's lite sensor controlled.
I hope nokia next update will overclock this phone to 533MHz because that is possible, and will speed up for quicker browsing.
Why no more update
we need threaded sms and more shortcut widget , if possible we want two home pages and dont forget to fix the screen brightness issues

They are using 720 mhz processor compared to a 434mhz on n97. Besides, the design on vivaz pro is superb and compact and thats technology man! N97 does look classy with he finishing but we got to give credit to SE for making this more compact and easy to pocket. I'm also a Nokia fan but please give credit where credit is due and not try to condemn others.
The next update should have threaded sms and more shortcut widgets! This is what we this phone users are waiting for ages
r 3 b 3 l, 22 Jun 2010What do you mean the mini won't play mp4? It even records video in mp4 format!
You can get ... moreMy mistake...I got ahead of myself. I meant to say DivX instead of MP4.
As far as the Divx players are concerned, they will only play some DivX/XviD encoded videos I have realized. Usually ones that aren't over a 640x360 res. I have found it much easier to just convert to MPEG-4 & use the built-in Real Player.

You can get a free software like 'divx player' to play avi format.
THe N97 Mini is much better than the Vivaz. Nokia implemnts S60v5 much better than SE, & the N97 Mini has much better materials used. I cannot stand all plastic mobiles, & the Vivaz seems like a toy after using the N97 Mini.
The N97 Mini will not play .avi or Mp4 files. You have to first convert them. The fastest free converter I have found is http://www.ipod-video-converter.org/
If you want your battery to last a few days, turn the brightness down to the lowest setting. Install apps onto the Mass Storage or MicroSD card. Keep the C: drive as full as possible for best performance.

?.?, 21 Jun 2010what are the difference from n97 mini and n97 ?The biggest difference between the Nokia N97 mini and the N97 can be summarized in four things. The N97 mini is physically smaller. Its dimensions are 113 x 52.5 x 14.2 mm, whereas the N97 measures 117.2 x 55.3 x 15.9 mm. Although the resolutions of the touch screens are the same, the display on the N97 mini is smaller; 3.2 inches against 3.5 inches. The N97 mini has smaller (8GB) internal memory space for applications and data. The N97 has respectable amount, 32GB, of internal memory space. Both have memory card slots for extra storage space. The N97 has FM radio, which the mini doesn't have.
Sure, there are other differences, but all and all, they are pretty minimal. Except for one thing; price. The list price for the Nokia N97 mini is 450 euros, whereas the N97 is selling for a couple of hundred more.
