Orange dumps Nokia N97 Mini

Following the news we brought you earlier about Vodafone dropping the delayed Sony Ericsson Xperia X2, Pocket-lint can confirm that Orange is dumping the Nokia N97 Mini from its line-up.

The reason is reported to be the handset's high return rate of 20% due to alleged problems with the device. Orange, however, is not giving a reason for the move.

"We can confirm that Orange UK will no longer continue to range the N97 Mini as part of its existing handset portfolio", an Orange spokesperson told Pocket-lint.

"We remain committed to supporting the device for existing customers and look forward to working with Nokia in the future".
