Nokia N97 mini review

We've had two QWERTY Nokia smartphones on the SlashGear test-bench this past week, and the surprising thing is how differently the respective user experience is. Our Nokia E72 review went live earlier today; now we turn to the Nokia N97 mini, viewed by many - for better or for worse - as the Finnish company's second attempt at the N97. Second-time lucky or still well short? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Nokia N97 mini and E72 video unboxings

Nokia's Booklet 3G isn't the only new device from the company on our test bench today; two of the Finn's newest smartphones have also arrived, in the shape of the N97 mini and the E72.  Announced back in September and June, respectively, each offers a full QWERTY keyboard and S60 OS, but in strikingly different ways.  Check out our unboxing videos, live galleries and some first impressions after the cut.

We made no bones about our disappointment with the Nokia N97 back when we reviewed it in late June, so we were wary of the N97 mini.  Having played with it at Nokia World this week, it's clear that many of the issues we had with the larger model have been addressed; still, there are some glaring frustrations that leave us more enchanted by the N900 than this new, compact device.  Check out our first-impressions and a hands-on gallery and video after the cut.

Nokia N97 Mini gets early review: Awful keyboard

Nokia N97 Mini gets early review: Awful keyboard

We knew the Nokia N97 Mini was only mildly smaller than its full-sized sibling, but Mobile-Review's Eldar Murtazin has - thanks to his early access to the QWERTY smartphone - confirmed it with a full review.  Unfortunately for Nokia, he's not impressed: a combination of insufficient price differentiation between the N97 Mini and the N97, mediocre looks and, most damning, a keyboard that's actually worse than that of the original add up to a handset that's yet to answer the original question of "why bother?"

Nokia N97 Mini coming later in 2009?

Nokia N97 Mini coming later in 2009?

Chalk this one up under the "big rumor" heading for the moment, but a moderator at the Vodafone View forums has claimed that the carrier will be releasing a "Nokia N97 Mini" in Ireland later this year.  The phone is described as "competitively" priced, which the moderator suggests will "appeal to a wider segment of customers"; as such, the Nokia N97 will not be launched in Ireland.

Nokia N8 Review

Nokia N8 Review

It feels like we've been talking about the Nokia N8 for a long time. February 2010 saw the first murmurings, followed by a string of leaks, rumors, semi-accurate previews and finally, around seven months later, a commercial release. In the meantime there's been no shortage of speculation over whether Symbian^3 still has a place among the smartphone elite, how the North American market will take to the N8, and indeed whether Nokia is still relevant in a world of Android, iOS and other successful platforms. That's a whole lot resting on a single device, so can the Nokia N8 shoulder the strain? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
