It will probably be a 3G device with the 4G version "coming soon" as usual.

No, they have already stated the delays with them in the first place were specifically due to 4G LTE chip-sets.

I had two N-Series models before Nokia nearly failed and was eventually bought out by Microsoft.
That same N-Series line was quickly and permanently discontinued and lost both updates and support from Nokia...
The N-Series former Flagship line from Nokia was the tell-tale marker of Nokia's imminent downfall.
RIMM is now launching a N-Series line--a tell-tale marker of RIM's eventual buyout or even sadder downfall. Nokia had dozens of unique models, materials, patents, and innovations, but after 14 years at the top they were beat out by Samsung and their stock is the lowest it's been in 8 years.
RIM was nothing more than a qwerty keyboard for people who thought that they were business professionals. The fact that they're still relevant boggles my mind. This N-Series marks the beginning of the end for them.
If we studied history well enough we would actually learn from our past mistakes.

Nokia was not bought by Microsoft though.

yes, because having an "n-series" spells imminent doom.

No wonder you haven't got any likes yet.

It's exactly the same as the Nokia Lumia clear black display. RIM should just have the option and let the end consumer choose their screen theme. Not much of an issue to dwell on. they have bigger issues to fix.
