We are just 5 days away from the start of the second MeeGo Conference and a very interesting video has just popped up, a promo for Nokia’s first MeeGo device, the N9. The video is nothing more than a teaser, but does manage to reveal a bunch details about the device which may even be called the N950. The only problem is that the OS the phone is running looks a lot like upcoming Symbian releases, right down to the icons, so may be the teaser that Pocket Now has scooped was a work in progress, with the MeeGo parts to be placed in later.
Nevertheless, the hardware does look solid. First, it packs an auto focus camera with a Carl Zeiss lens and a dual LED, no EDoF unit here. My guess is a 12 MP. Then there is the all aluminum body, with a physical QWERTY and a 4″ screen in a very E7ish design. Here are some images that promise to reveal more.
- Looks like a 12MP AF, dual LED camera with a Carl Zeiss lens.
- The earpiece, just under the top end of the phone. It does have a very narrow bezel.
- Looks like a great QWERTY keyboard, in an all aluminum body.
- Fairly large screen, possibly 4″.
- It’ll come with Ovi Maps with driving navigation.
- An app in action.
- Looks like a very capable browser, with the speed dial screen shown perhaps.
- The QWERTY virtual keyboard.
- The tilt up slide mechanism which is a lot like the E7.
- The bottom of the device, with the camera and speaker grill.
- The calender in action.
- Notice how thin the bezel is.
- The face of the N9/N950, with a front camera. It does look good.
- Notice the sliding transition to move to the next screen.
- Nokia calls it ‘Our Next Sense’. Perhaps they want to get back at HTC.
Now for the video that Pocket Now has been able to scoop:
We’ll probably know more on Monday when the MeeGo Conference kicks off. I’ll be there to bring you the latest.
