    I did hear it was the 29th !

    ''Vodafone has finally announced its pricing for the Nokia N97 Mini. It's gone up for pre-order too, so if you're dying to get your hands on the dinky younger brother of Nokia's flagship smartphone then you can be one of the first who'll be able to do so.

    The handset will be free on 2-year Pay Monthly tariffs from £35 per month. That'll get you 900 minutes, unlimited texts and unlimited internet. Alternately there's a £40 per month option, still for 2 years, that gives you 1200 minutes.

    As previously reported, the N97 Mini has 8GB of onboard storage, a 3.2-inch touchscreen, 5-megapixel camera and a full QWERTY keyboard. It has all of the same widgety goodness as its older brother too, but still runs the Symbian operating system that we weren't a fan of in the N97.

    The handset can be pre-ordered now, and will be released on 23 October''

    If its anythng like its big brother then hopefully nokia have sorted out all the bugs that people over the net are moaning about........and £35 a month over two years for this is way too steep...bettter phones out there for less money.....

    Is this tongue in cheek or serious?

    So far the N97 mini appears to be worse than the N97 and certainly isn't much cheaper and they've done little to make any improvements (the keyboard is just as bad). Even as a Nokia fan I wouldn't touch an N97 currently as the keyboard is just a waste of space, instead I'm waiting to see how the N900 turns out which aside from the new OS is meant to have a better keybaord.

    got an n800 - maemo is the future

    I really like the idea of the N97 Mini as I was disappointed with the original as my main complaint about the 5800 is simply the lack of keyboard. I'm seriously tempted by an HTC Touch Pro 2 at the moment as the keyboard on it is just superb but sadly HTC's QC reputation isn't

    That's iPhone money and that's no iPhone its also the same price as its big brother so why would any one choose this over better competition by HTC Apple and Nokia.

    Why would anyone want the mini over the original?

    Obviously Nokia marketing think it will go down well.... I stayed away from the original just because I never like the size....

    The 5800 I kept for 4 months never let me down once, including Garmin Sat nav....

    I suppose eberyone to their own... I do like Sony Ericsson also, but I still think this will go down well....

    N900, all the way. It was very good on the N810, the processor was a measly 400mhz, but it managed to play 350MB files perfectly fine, had a bit torrent application, practically just a smaller version of a full blown PC.

    And it also had tonnes of apps and games (you just needed to add all the unofficial repositories aswell). Maemo 5, although lacks some standard Nokia features (which will be fix in a firmware update) is definitely the way forward.

    It now only hinges on two things - ease of application distribution meaning having only one repository where you can get apps from. And ease of developing applications, app development is being addressed as Qt is being ported to maemo which means easier to convert Windows Mobile, Symbian (and I hope Android) apps to Maemo and vice versa.

    So all in all I think the N900 will put Nokia right back at the top of the pile, if winMo, symbian, and maemo apps were all made cross platform, they still wouldn't be as many apps as the iPhone, but there would be alot more useful and apps that enhance prodictivity than the iPhone.
