    Hi,

    I was interested in picking up the old N97 handset when it came out, but was turned off by all the negative press.

    I now need urgently to get a new mobile phone, and it has to be on vodafone because it's the only network that has reception around my workplace. The trouble is I'm addicted to phones with slide-out qwerty keyboards and the N97 mini is the only phone on Vodafone that combines most of the features I want into a single package.

    Press reviews seem to suggest it's certainly a better phone than it's full-sized predecessor, but I'd be interested in a wider opinion: so, what was so wrong with the original handset and how (if at all) does the mini improve things?

    Cheers,
    Matt

    It's not a bad phone but to be honest mate I would pass on it though because it still lacks in certain areas.

    I got rid of mine as it became a pain and I became frustrated with it and its a pain to get used to especially with the sensitivity of the touchscreen.

    I had one bad experience when it once crashed on me and it was a cold icy day and i couldn't call to arrange a pickup from work. Luckily my bro rang and i was able to pick up.

    I have since moved onto the iPhone and for once I have a working phone which is not gonna fail me.

    I was looking at the N900 but after researching it there is still work needed to be done to make it function brialliantly.

    I hope this helps mate- just thought to let you know on my personal experience with the mini.

    Regards.

    Jay
