450... don't think they'll be flying off the shelves.

they wanted to make n97 smaller and cheaper so made n97 mini , putting n86 camera in it would raise size and price

Why not? They have sold 2 million from the original one. This is EUR 150 less. It will fly from the selves like hot cakes.

An idea that Nokia surely wont have thought of.

Fix the N97 before releasing a mini one! Damn, no support for current customer base

It may be 150 euros cheaper, but the original didnt exactly win people's hearts. This is a mini version of something that didnt go down well with many people. I think they will be cautious before buying this.

Just slightly bigger than a 5800, this is a better size altogether. This may well be my next phone, although I will wait for the inevitable price drop.

Because you can buy the original new for 450 now! By the time this is available in retail stores the N97 will be even cheaper. Since they sold 2 million N97s, do you think there is an untapped market for an S60 5th ed touch screen phone with Qwerty, or perhaps all those people have already bought the N97...

Plus, it's only 50 off the price of the N900!

I've decided not to by the N97, iPhone, the forthcoming N900 and many other nicely featured phones purely because they are all excessively bulky, I use a (surprisingly impressive) 5800xm currently and I will be only too pleased to get the same sort of thing with the added bonus of a physical qwerty.

I don't expect that quoted price to be the market price. It never is. Remember the 5800 introductory CPW price? And prices slide pretty quickly once the early adopter profits are made.
If there is nothing else more interesting on the horizon, then I will likely go with this one - because it suits my needs.

All the geeks love to tell Nokia what they are doing wrong, but they just keep selling phones and confounding everyone. Makes me laugh.

Anyone has specs on RAM and CPU? Eldar from mobile-review.com claims it's the same as N97 Classic but I doubt it.

Selling phones yeah, but losing market share

Ask Nokia what the return rate is for the N97 vs the iPhone. They might have sold 2 million, but how many of those are replacement phones for N97s that didn't work in the first place!

I really, really hope they will bring the new software improvements to 5800.
I hate being one of the few million testers for the unfinished software they put in it.

I'm not just asking for the software features of N97, like the home screen. That is why we have N97. I'm talking about memory and kinetic scrolling improvements they mentioned on the key note.
