The original N97 has a keyboard too... The mini is actually 1.7mm thinner.

If you really want to compare then - The mini loses the navigation pad to the left of the keyboard, has only 8GB flash storage (N97 has 32GB), has a smaller screen 3.2" vs 3.5", has a smaller battery (but somehow slightly better standby time).
