More alleged Nokia N9 pictures leak, looks like the N8 with a chicklet keyboard and MeeGo
MeeGo is still in its infancy, and the Nokia N8 hasn't climbed on the shelves yet, but another batch of pictures has hit the Internets of the upcoming Nokia N9 handset, which is supposed to combine those two, and add a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Coinciding with what we saw last month, when the phone was lying next to an iPhone 4 and an HTC EVO 4G, the leaked pictures show a chicklet keyboard, and a screen size in-between the two, which means 3.7”, or maybe even 4” screen. The other rumored specs so far have been an 8MP camera and a front-facing camera, both with LED flashes, and 360x640 pixels of display resolution, which seems about right from the pictures and the videos before them.

In the previous leaks it looked as if the handset is still running Symbian. Nokia, however, announced that the N8 will be the last Nseries device with that platform, and it will move on to MeeGo for the next ones. From what we can grab from this latest batch of pictures, it is indeed running something else rather than Symbian, which may as well be MeeGo, judging from the battery and menu icons, and the clock font (all look just like MeeGo on the N900). Nokia World is coming next month, so we are sure we can endure a month of suspense.

Oh, and the pictures look stamped with in the lower left corner, so that probably is the real source - if anyone knows Chinese, head over there and dig something more if you can, your language teacher will be proud.

Keyboard looks like a copy of one on SE Vivaz pro, and design is obviously the Xperia X1.

Why should they copy if they can do better of it? Nokia have plenty of phone that have QWERTY keyboard like N97, N97mini, and E7(not yet announce).

I have a Nokia N97 and I honestly don't think I would want another phone if the software was as good as it's looks and features. However if the N9 is going to look that good and the MeeGo software can deliver like that on the iphone or android, I'll just have to get it. I really hope they get it right this time.

This doesn't coincide with what TechnoBuffalo previewed a month ago. That wasn't an N9, it ran Symbian^3 instead of MeeGo and it looked nothing like this.
