I was relieved to see the Nokia N9 surface, with a nice-looking slide-out QWERTY and 8MP camera. It's been a long time coming for Nokia, even if it's shown running Symbian for now. These new specs sound pretty decent.
* NAM 3G Bands (850/1900)
* nHD Display (640 X 360)
* 4″ Capacitive multi-touch display
* Front facing camera (VGA?) with LED Flash
* Rear 8MPX camera with Dual LED Flash
* WiFi, Bluetooth
* HDMI Out
The 8MP camera on the back, forward-facing camera on the front and mini HDMI port are all visible in the first photo. The screen looks large, with Techno Buffalo confirming it's one of the nHD screens which was seen in the 5800 XpressMusic and N97, so-called because it's 1/9th of a HD screen.
Like we said the other day, it's very doubtful that the N9 will actually launch with Symbian, considering they've ditched it for their high-end N-series range of phones. So expect to see this slide-out QWERTY coming at your way with MeeGo OS, the platform that's come from the joint venture between Nokia and Intel. [Techo Buffalo]
