A Mini version of the N97 will be launching on Vodafone Ireland along with the follow up to the Blackberry Storm, the Storm 2.
The leak came courtesy of one of Vodafone’s Forum moderators known as Ev, and was in response to a question concerning the availability of the N97 on Vodafone.
The response from Ev was “Vodafone Ireland will not be launching the N97 but will be launching the N97 Mini later this year. Due to the Mini’s competitive pricing we feel it will appeal to a wider segment of consumers.”
However, the details were quickly removed, adding fuel to the fire of authenticity.
Judging from the comments the handset will be a scaled-back and physically smaller version of the Nokia N97 handset that went on sale today.
Also mentioned in the post was confirmation that the upcoming Blackberry Storm 2 handset would be coming to Vodafone Ireland.
We’re not sure if this info is on the up-and-up or if this particular mod got a bit confused; but we’re certainly interested in seeing what Nokia might have cooked up in the N97 Mini.
