I didn't know that my nexus one is considered a "mini" phone

I dont get this. Why would you want something worse than the real deal...

Never live in the past but always learn from it.

Maybe because not everyone has a thousand dollars to splurge on a phone?
The Mini is obviously going to cost lesser than the S2, so it gives people an alternative to buying the 'Ultimate Flagship' phone.

Because not everyone want to have "laptop" in a pocket. For a primary phone which is used daily I find 4.3 screen too big. Still SGS2 or HTC Pyramid will most probably be my next phone, but before I buy it, I want to check how it goes into a pocket. My current HTC Desire have good dimensions, but is already almost one year old so I have to buy something new. If SGS2 is too big, then SGS2 Mini will be good choice. Looks like it has even faster processor (1.4 ghz).

Well looks like it's a cheaper version with a non dual core processor and a camera with lower resolution

A lot of people complain that 4.3" screen is too big, so its smart move to offer similar hardware (dualcore etc) with smaller display and smaller dimensions.

I would already pre-order Desire S if it would be dualcore.

galaxy S II mini has no dual core. well no one actually said what it has for real, but people are guessing its a snapdragon, overclocked msm8655 i believe. i rather wait for official samsung announcement (hoping its a hummingbird, not snapdragon, dont really care about dual core/camera)

if this costs simillar (or close enough) as xperia neo, i will get sgs II mini

LOL 3.7" a mini? ...

the engineers needs some eye check

at the very maximum 3" might be passable as mini

mini should not go beyond 2.8" in size

3.7 is the new mini! 4.0 is average, 4.3 is big, 4.5 is yummy big, and 5.0 is sleddable. Like how they secretly enlarge shirt and pants sizes as the world gets fatter.

I think everyone needs to take the "Mini" part relatively.
Compared to 4.3" a 3.7" screen is certainly the smaller brother!
I think 4.3" will get the job done for me though. (I imagine that's something "she" definitely didn't say.)
