Nokia N97 Mini Leaked

Last month a Vodafone employee let slip the N97 would be getting a smaller counterpart, but obviously this wall was all rumours. Apparently though he was right and pictures and information have “leaked” onto t’internet. The noticeable difference is the smaller screen and chassis.
