A picture purporting to be the first official shot of the n97 Mini has leaked onto the web from the same French website, Be Geek, that leaked the "first official" picture of the N900 earlier in the week.

The picture, if true, shows the new phone that is expected to be announced at the beginning of September at Nokia World in Stuttgart coming in a lovely brown, a smaller keyboard that loses the thumbpad, and a smaller screen from 3.5-inches to 3-inches.

If the details are to be believed, the N97 Mini will cost 170 Euros and have 280MB of internal memory compared to 50MB on the N97 that launched in June.

Pocket-lint will be live from Nokia World brining you all the latest as it happens.

We will keep you posted.
