According to a post made by a moderator at the Vodafone Ireland forums, a so-called Nokia N97 Mini smartphone will be launched soon, coming as a more affordable version of the original N97 (which is sold for $699 unlocked).
Reportedly, the Nokia N97 Mini will come to Vodafone Ireland “later this year”.
There are basically no details about the handset, save for the fact that it will have a competitive price.
Well, if it features a touchscreen and a QWERTY keyboard, I guess it can’t be too different from the N97, right?
Now, if Vodafone Ireland indeed readies a Mini N97, it means that Vodafone markets around the globe might also get the new smartphone. Of course, that’s pure speculation, so until something official comes from Vodafone or Nokia, we shouldn’t put too much trust in all this.
