Again, the Nokia N9 Slips Out to Show Off its 4" Screen and 8MP Camera

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.

According to Techno Buffalo, who managed to persuade Negri Electronics to part with it for a few hours after showing it off on video the other day, it's got the following specs:

* 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]

DISCUSSION

Why is this being referred to as an N9 when it has a C0 label on the front, similar to the N00 that previous N-series protos were branded with during testing. Most likely this is a new C-series handset that is designed to provide many of the N8 features at a lower price point, hence the lower resolution camera and plastic body.

The real N9 is probably not only going to be a MeeGo powered handset, but will most likely have specs that are equal to or better than the N8. I bet we haven't seen a real proto of it yet, assuming a working one even exists at this stage of MeeGo's development.
