Take the full-fledged N97, put it in the dryer and shrink it a size or two, and that’s pretty much what this Mini looks like at first glance. A closer look at the slightly smaller, thinner handset reveals that the camera has gone au natural (without a cover) and lost the d-pad (at the left side of the original). Instead, the little guy has a four buttons grouped at the right for navigation.
No other specs or details are known at this time.
If this is real, I hope it’s a really, really early prototype. There just doesn’t seem to be enough difference between this and the original — neither in size nor style — to make it worthwhile.
