Leaking faster than BPs Gulf of Mexico oil well is news and information on Nokia’s upcoming N9 smartphone.
The surprisingly slim phone sizes up as an interesting alternative to the iPhone and comes with the bonus of a handy slide-out QWERTY keypad for all your typing needs.
The camera department looks set to impress too, with an 8 megapixel camera with dual LED flash on the back and a front facing VGA camera for video calls, if you’re so inclined.
The 3G slider also comes with HDMI Out (nice!), Wi-fi, Bluetooth and a 4″ capacitive multi-touch 640 X 360 nHD screen (a la 5800 XpressMusic).
The video demo shows the device running on the Symbian OS, although the final version will almost certainly be running their new MeeGo operating system. Similarly, the ‘N9’ moniker is likely to change too.
It certainly looks all good to us, but we’d have to spend some hands-on time with the device before declaring it a triumph.
After all, recent Nokia upmarket smartphones have fallen hideously short of the mark and the company still has a lot of ground to catch up on their Android and iPhone counterparts.
