Will Nokia Be Releasing A N97 Mini or N97 Lite? Vodafone Thinks So

Vodafone seems to have let slip that Nokia are planning a "Mini" or "Lite" version of the recently released N97 smartphone.

A moderator on the Vodafone forums said the carrier would not be getting the touchscreen and QWERTY keyboard wielding N97, but would instead be launching the "N97 Mini" later this year, due to its "competitive pricing". No additional info was revealed about the handset and the comment has since been edited, along with users replies. [VodafoneForums via UnwiredView]
