A moderator at the Vodafone Ireland Forum named 'Ev from Vodafone' is claiming that the carrier will not be carrying the new Nokia N97 smartphone. Instead, apparently, Vodafone will wait for the unannounced Nokia N97 Mini, which supposedly features more competitive pricing.

Ev goes on to state that Vodafone will also not be stocking the Palm Pre, due to another unnamed carrier having an exclusive deal. Unsurprisingly, it seems as though Vodafone will be stocking the RIM BlackBerry Storm 2 later this year.

Well this is a false and ridiculous rumour. Notonly because the N97 is actually all over the vodafone website but I've just spoken to them and they offered it to me as an upgrade for free on a 40 a month plan over 24 months.

I would completely discredit these rumours which have been started on Twitter.

The story has been updated to say "Vodafone Ireland", which should have been stated more clearly (though the link to the forum shows the .ie designation). In any case, it was not started on Twitter, but posted directly on the Vodafone Ireland forums website.

The browser of n97 mini phone is very good on portable sites, however if you try to log into a site that doesn't have a WAP version or some kinda phone version, then it lags quite a bit and takes a while to load.

I think the touch-screen algorithms of this n97 mini phone is improved for better performance, and I did feel like the display was more responsive. You also now get kinetic scrolling for pages and menu items, so when you reach the end or top of the list, it snaps back like elastic.
