Nokia N97 Mini Preview



Eldar at Mobile-Review is at it again and this time he’s previewed the N97 Mini, a device no-one is quite sure why it exists given its not so big brother has only been on the market for 2 months. Never the less its one step closer to being released with the official announcement to made at Nokia World in September according to sources.

The mini is said to have some benefits over its brethren though, including improved camera and bumped hardware in the form of more ram and increased cpu speed, hopefully this will address the N97’s sluggish performance but unfortunately Nokia decided to stick with the less than popular keyboard design.

Head on over to Mobile-Review to get the full story and as usual, a shed load of pictures.

The Steam Punk Phone

1 Here’s a fun little phone I noticed at Englishrussia. The English on the blog isn’t the best, but the pictures are lovely and it’ looks like a head turner. Not quite an iPhone, but reminds me of some of the early Motorolas.

Russian steam punk phone from the Russian man famous for his daughter which started a court plea against Russian state for “having no alternative in current school education for the Darwin theory, putting it as the only right in the minds of schoolchildren”.
