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'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.

It's all go in Nokia N97 land this week, with the double news that not only have the Finnish company released the much-anticipated 2.0 firmware update for the original N97, but that the Nokia N97 mini would be arriving on shelves.  The N97 mini - officially announced at Nokia World back in September - has a smaller chassis than the N97, but uses the same touchscreen-friendly S60 5th Edition OS.

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?"
