Nokia N97 Mini Review : The Minimax
Say hello to the N97 younger brother. Yes, this time it has its mini version. Not only cut the dimension, this mini also remove some feature, like FM Transmitter and N-Gage. But still, this junior comes special. Built-in Full Touch Display and Full QWERTY keyboard, this phone offers great functionality with full connectivity. Rich multimedia and Office application are the main menu of this handset.

- Full QWERTY keyboard

Display & Interface
Because the giant loose its weigh, they got smaller dimension. Comes in about 1.5mm smaller, make this phone easy to hold. N97 mini empower the slide-out function with solid equipment. This slide mechanism can built it into a small computer by lifting the display. Powered by 16 Million colors 3.2” inch screen, the icons are placed perfect. Still the same with its S60 5th family, the icon style aren’t far different, quite big to ‘touch’. Still, this phone comes with stylus to ease the operate.

Entertainment on The Go
As an N-series family. This phone still developing its multimedia ability. Boosted with a big 5 Megapixels Camera with AutoFocus and Dual LED Flash, this phone can say more both in outdoor and indoor. Of course still, the indoor quality is below the outdoor ones. Switch to Music function, there are stereo speakers with crunch sound and some sound quality improvement setting to hear music better. The 3.5mm Headset Jack and A2DP make it more powerful.

Office and Connection
Fated as a multimedia phone doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have another arm. Same with previous version, this phone comes with complete HSDPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and USB Cable until Built-in GPS Receiver integrated with Nokia Maps and 3 months free audio navigation license. For office task, N97 mini hands it over to QuickOffice and Adobe PDF Viewer. Unfortunately, the Office application are designed to be a viewer only. Need furhter purchase to make it an editor too.

The Wares
Being a S60 5th phone give a huge selection off application to be installed. Morover the MIDP is also supporting the aplication availability. Pre installed with Social Networking application and E-mail Client make more sense in this small phone. The hardware are also as good as we expected. The battery capacity is big enough, 1200mAh. For addition, we receive some reports that much usage in game causing the overheat in back body. But that’s not make worse the 128MB RAM and ARM11 434 MHz processor phone with 8GB memory. The choice is up to you.
