Nokia is all set to launch a smaller version of N97 called N97 mini. Here's looking into how the new Nokia N97 mini will look, features offered and expected pricing.
Nokia's smaller version of N97 features a 3.2-inch touchscreen and full QWERTY keyboard built into its 14.2mm thin frame. It measures 113 x 52.5 x 14.2mm.

Just like N97, mini too has a tilting touchscreen display and a customisable home screen that can be personalised with widgets. The phone is touted as a smaller mobile computer with stainless steel cues.
Nokia N97 mini will be Nokia's first device to feature Lifecasting with Ovi -- a new partnership with the world’s most popular social network, Facebook. Lifecasting enables users to update their Facebook status directly from the phone's homescreen.
Lifecasting with Ovi will be available for Nokia N97 as well via Nokia Beta Labs.
