Shrinking the N97 won't exactly fix what was wrong with it, but this supposed N97 Mini makes the economical choice of ditching the borderline-useless D-Pad. Weenie-sizing the price would help more, though. [GadgetReview]
I'm actually interested in this— I like the 97 fine, and I've been debating grabbing one and pairing it with my e71 (unlimited data and texts for $30 from AT&T is much, much better than unlimited data and texts for $50 for a carrier-locked smartphone) but I've been a bit turned off by the lackluster reviews. I figured some revisions were going to happen sooner than later— this might be what I need, that I should jump in on this guy.
