Nokia N97 Mini Gets Official: €450 ($640) in October

An extensive preview filled us in on the N97 not-so Mini, but it now has a price: €450 ($640) pre-taxes and subsidies. It should be available off contract in "many markets", and includes Lonely Planet guidebooks and Facebook "Lifecasting".

Premiering on the N97 Mini, the Lifecasting with Ovi feature lets you publish your GPS location and status direct to your Facebook account, all from the home screen.

As a reminder: the N97 Mini has a QWERTY keyboard and a 3.2-inch touchscreen (versus a 3.5-inch display on the only slightly larger N97). Stay tuned for confirmed U.S details. [Nokia]
