First official shots of the Nokia N9 are leaked

Ahead of it expected debut at the CommunicAsia 2011 event being held in Singapore, the identity of the Nokia N9 is revealed ahead of time thanks to the first set of official press images being leaked. Gone is the QWERTY slider form factor that we saw previously on a couple of occasions, but rather, it’s sporting a flamboyant candybar design with Meego on board.
Interestingly enough, the new Nokia N9 resembles Apple’s iPod nano line with its rectangular looks and flat top & bottom edges. Additionally, it’s going to be available in either black, blue, and pink paint jobs to perfectly complement your specific style. Besides the physical appearance of the device, very little is known about its hardware under the hood – but you can’t deny the eye-catching looks it’s boasting.
Naturally, there are going to be some people disappointed about the unexpected change with the handset, but there might still be a possibility of seeing the original aluminum slider making an appearance in the form of another handset. In the meantime though, we’ll be keeping an eye out of what news we’ll see regarding this refreshingly tasteful handset.

Uh... yeah, it is said to be running Meego, but the icons look like they've been taken straight from Symbian Anna. Also hearing it has an 8Mpix camera... after the N8 had a 12, why bother releasing a "market disrupting device" with anything less than 12Mpix (... and then calling it the "N9")? And the keyboard that Meego fanatics were expecting? Gone! And purported iPod Nano looks will certainly draw criticism (maybe even a lawsuit) from Apple. sub-N8 specs + Meego + iPod looks = substandard ubergeeky iPhone-wanna-be Nokia's alleged 2011 "market disrupting", "flagship" device is about to be christened in style, launched as lawsuit-bait, and then immediately sink off the pier...

The only way that looks like an ipod is that it has a colorful metal case surrounding a black screen. Get a life

By the way for the ones saying that this phone looks like the ipod nano this is the same design that the qwerty N9 had when it first showed up but without the qwerty keyboard of course and besides there are more realistic pictures of the N9 on engadget

Idk what the hooplah is about. It looks fantastic. No slider. Oh well physical qwertys are overrated bulk that's meant for women with nails(because capacitive screens aren't compatible with acrylic). The world is moving to thinner candy bar touch only devices. Sliders are becoming niche. When everyone wants thinner where are the keyboards?
