Nokia Officially Reveals the N97 Mini

Despite having already added two new music phones and a netbook to its product line, it seems Nokia is on a roll at Nokia World in Stuttgart as the company today announced a new addition to its NSeries, the N97 Mini.

The N97 Mini is basically a just a revised version of the N97. eWeek reports that it's built on the same tilt display design as the N97 but it's all bundled into a smaller package. The phone features 8 GB of storage, 5-megapixel camera with dual LED flash, video light and a Carl Zeiss Tessar lens, plus the ability to up the capacity to 16GB with the help of a microSD card.

Nokia also announced a new deal with Facebook that will allow users to update their social networking page from the homescreen. Dubbed 'lifecasting,' the feature enables you to post status updates and your location from your phone.

Right now, the pricing for the N97 Mini is set at around €450 ($640) before taxes and subsidies. Anyone interested? More to the point, any N97 owners regretting their purchase?
