Here’s an interesting surprise… a rumored Nokia N97 Mini gets pictured in the wild. It seems to have a smaller body, smaller screen, omitted lens cover, and a different keyboard layout. I think I might like the keyboard, but I’m not sure about a smaller touchscreen. We’ll have to wait if this is indeed a real device.
After a month of using the Nokia N97, minor scratches appeared on camera lens which didn’t really affect photo quality. This past weekend (approx. 45 days of usage), I notice photos that used flash were washed out on one side. It looks like more scratches appeared on the lens that are now affecting the photos.
Notice some washed out photos when using the flash? It could be caused by smudge on your lens. I noticed this while taking a photo inside a party. A simple cleaning of the lens fixed the problem. Take a look.
Compass calibration on the Nokia N97 is a lot faster now. When I first got the Nokia N97, I complained about how long it takes the Nokia N97 to calibrate the compass. A video from Symbian World showed they did it in 3 seconds, but I was unable to reproduce the same result just by flicking my wrist. The trick was to turn off the auto-rotate sensor too. Watch how I did it.
I’ve been asking my new Twitter followers what Nokia phone they are currently using and which are they looking forward to. I’m surprised that the majority of those who responded still currently use the Nokia N95. The phone they are looking forward to vary, but most say the Nokia N97. Let me also ask the question here.
