Specs for Nokia's MeeGo phone unearthed

Specs for Nokia's MeeGo phone unearthed
The most anticipated announcement on Nokia's part is its first MeeGo handset. The Nokia N9-00 with a physical keyboard is rumored DOA, and replaced with a touchscreen-only Nokia N9-01, which is to make a cameo at the MWC Expo this month. Nokia's new flagship should have an Intel Atom chipset, and a large display, as well as a similar camera to the great one on the Nokia N8.

Over at NokiaPort.de the observant Germans have unearthed the actual specs of the device from the MeeGo's source code, debugging reports and patch list. Now we have a pretty clear picture what the device might look like - we are looking at a screen with 480x854 pixel of resolution, probably over 4.1", a 1.6GHz Atom CPU, 1 GB RAM, graphics processor at 200MHz with 512MB dedicated memory, HDMI-out, NFC chip, GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, as well as a 21Mbps HSPA+ radio. Sounds like a well-rounded device to us, especially if the camera rumors materialize. The picture below is of an AAAVA concept reference design for a phone running MeeGo, powered by Intel's chipset. The Nokia MeeGo device may or may not look anything like that.

Nokia is holding a Strategy and Financial Briefing conference on February 11th in London, where the company said it will clarify the way forward. What we are most looking forward to there is for CEO Stephen Elop to present a clear and coherent strategy for Nokia's future. We want to know if he is still sticking with Anssi Vanjoki's vision for a hybrid Symbian/MeeGo future for Nokia, or he will change the course somehow. At least the MeeGo part seems to be staying the course.

I HOPE it has a 12.1 mp camera like on the N8! I'm a little dissapointed at the screen resolution...I was hoping that it beats Iphone 4's Retina display, in terms of Pixel density. Cross your thumbs this baby has 64gb internal memory! Please, Nokia, if this is the COME-BACK SUPERPHONE the whole world is waiting for, it BETTER be perfect....OH else...

Hmm the specs make me think this phone will end up at a 999$ price tag. And Intel's GMA gfx accelerators SUCK. I mean this GPU in N9 can no way even come close to a PowerVR SGX530 or 535, let alone the SGX 540(which is more than 3 times powerful than SGX 535 in iPhone4)

That's good but still intel compet with VRSGX or NiVda Tegra Dual core CPU and still there's a quad core in the way maybe it's faster 40 or 50 timer than dual core and VRSGX

The specs seem very impressive and competitive to what's going on in the market now, I just hope the Meego OS is ready and looking good by MWC because first impression really counts.

Nearly ALL newer Nokia devices use BOTH AT&T AND T-Mobile 3.5G frequencies. Do not fret! Nokia is the only company in the world to 'do the right thing' with unlocked devices in the modern world.

BTW, if Nokia is going to deliver an ultra-high-end device with 854x480 resolution over a year after iApple released the iPhone4, then it just goes to show how out of touch with current trends, consumers, US carriers, the high end market, and the entire electronics industry they are.

512 MB ram dedicated to the GPU?! In phone!? Is today 1'st of April or what? At 1.6GHz I expect a fan for that processor.
