The N97 is available on various contracts

Consumers recycling mobile phones may wish to hear about the latest offerings from Nokia.

The Finnish manufacturer has announced that the new N97 mini is now available, acting as a lighter more portable version of the smartphone it launched earlier this year.

In addition, those recycling mobile phones to pay for the original model can also expect an updated version of the handset's firmware, as a 2.0 update promises to enhance the overall performance of the product.

Jose-Luis Martinez, vice-president of Nokia's Nseries range, said it was hoped the newer of the two would emulate the success of its predecessor.

"We are also excited about the early feedback that we have received on the Nokia N97 mini, which carries a very similar feature set to the original Nokia N97 and comes in a pocket-friendly size for those out and about," he added.

The firm has yet to announce the launch date of its up and coming N900 model, although the handset is already being widely discussed.
