Capacitive touchscreen? Faster CPU? Who knows!
They've done the same thing as they did with the N95 to N95 8gig... Namely removed useful things. The N95 lost it's lens cover too, and the microSD memory slot. I stuck with the original N95 and was happy.
How are you supposed to navigate on the N97mini? There is no navigation pad... All with touch screen? Yuck...
Then again, be nice for Vodafone to release a new follow up... Orange still haven't managed to release the first one... First there was silence, then there was "Coming soon", now that's vanished and the silence has returned. Bound to be their crappy customer firmware again...
Have a look at this blog... Almost a months worth of Orange not knowing what it's doing from the customer perspective.
