If Nokia N97 can have its mini version i.e. Nokia N97 Mini, then there is no stopping Sony Ericsson from unleashing a mini version of its high profile mobile phone, Xperia X10. Enter Robyn aka Xperia X10 Mini whose pictures have been leaked onto the internet. But first thing first, Sony Ericsson is yet to officially acknowledge the phone. But something says to me, that we will be seeing it during the upcoming Mobile World Congress event. The reason why I say this is because Sony Ericsson has had a quite CES 2010 which increases the prospects of Rafael making an appearance in February at Barcelona.
Nokia Beta Labs has just updated its Nokia Messaging for Social Networks app by releasing Nokia Messaging for Social Networks Beta 2.

Nokia N97 Mini seems to have developed a habit of winning awards these days. Yesterday, Nokia N97 Mini was given the Best Mobile handset award by GSM Association (GSMA). This is not the first award that Nokia N97 mini has won. During the current month, it was also named as the number one handset in Phones Show Autumn 2009 ‘Top 5′.
Nokia World 2009 has been used to finally unveil the Nokia N97 Mini, after months of rumours and pictures. The new N97 mini is aimed at those that use services like Facebook, and aims to add in a lot more geolocating functionality too.
The N97 Mini got 8GB of internal memory, a 14.2mm thin frame and a 5MP camera with dual LED flash and Carl Zeiss optics, although the lens cover has been scrapped. The 3.2-inch touchscreen has a ‘near HD’ resolution (which isn’t really a resolution type) coming in at 640 x 360 and a 3.5mm headphone jack too for music and video playback.
It features all the old features from the full N97, although size of the keyboard is shrunk. Nokia has integrated geolocation into its Facebook application, now you can share your location to Facebook with Nokia Maps working within the social networking site.
The Nokia N97 Mini will be using the company’s 2.0 firmware update for the N97 range, which will be coming in October, bringing with it applications such as Lifecasting, designed to make posting to Facebook even easier, as well as elements like flick scrolling.
