It was only a few days ago when the Nokia N9 was spotted on video
giving up some insights in what to expect from the Finnish company, but this time around this QWERTY slider is met with some of its highly esteemed competitors. In the last encounter, it was shown how the handset favored the MeeGo platform, but strangely enough the chap from TechnoBuffalo narrating in the video believes it to be running an interface more akin to Symbian^3. While on the other hand, this prototype is placed in a lineup against the iPhone 4 and HTC EVO 4G to provide us a general size comparison – which we have to say has almost the same size as the iPhone 4, but it clearly has a larger screen. However, checking it from the side does show that it's slightly more thick, but when you consider the QWERTY keyboard it's packing along, it doesn't take away from its overall appeal. Just like the Motorola DROID, this Nokia N9 prototype attempts to keep a smaller footprint while still tacking on a physical QWERTY. Even though it might look pretty good as of right now, Nokia may still end up doing something to the device – so it wouldn't surprise anyone for it to have little resemblance with the final production unit.
