Can't tell whether it is real or fake, but it is actually very easy to make your phone look like it is running a different OS through a screenshot with the correct aspect ratio.

For example, this is my ATRIX 'running' Symbian:http://t.co/sqZBgaQL

Also, under full brightness I can clearly see a forward facing camera just like on the N9.

After playing around with Photoshop, the phone in the image looks identical to the N9:http://t.co/E9mpp2uJ

They did indeed. It was a fake photo to see how easily blogs beleive ElMu. And it was succesful. Maybe sites like this should take care in discovering more about images before posting. Not sure where these specs came from. I simply posted the photo

I don't care if this is fake or not, as long as the real thing doesn't have that 640x360 resolution, I'll be fine!

I'm so gonna buy this device. No matter How old symbian is but still gives a tough competition with new born OS.

in my opinion the actual photos taken by the phones are good... but it really shows that nokia n8 has still the better camera... see and compare the photos... the n8 looks sharper and more realistic... the only thing the xperia S has is it can open the camera much quicker... but the output is not that great... N8 still is the winner...

I'm an Xperia Neo owner. But I wont be bais, Nokia N8 is best 12Mpx Camera and it was launched around one and a half year back(approx. or maybe more) but Xperia S is still not in Shelves.... and as the Technology steps forward everyday even then See NOKIA Lauched the Quality Device Long ago if compared to any brand (Apple iPhone 4 S just S*CKZ!)
