Nokia N9 (or N8-01) gets sized up on video

1 Jul

Another day and we have another unit of Nokia’s unannounced N9 posing in front of the camera. While there is still some confusion about what this device will be called (the N9 or the N8-01) but on the basis of whatever we have seen so far, we can confirm that this is a legit device and that Nokia, for a change, has managed to come up with some slick, desirable hardware.

Today’s video confirms the specs – 8.0 MP camera, a 640×360 pixel display, HDMI out and the usual specs expected from a high-end smartphone. But what you need to check out is how thin this device actually is! Even with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard (which by the way looks very usable), the N9 (or the N8-01) seems to be almost as thick (or probably slightly thinner) than the iPhone 3GS! The display is bigger than the iPhone’s 3.5 inches but smaller than the HTC Evo 4G’s 4.3 inches, which means that this Nokia device has either a 3.7 inch or a 4.0 inch display. Check out the video below and let us know what you think…

    Too much..too late. Nokia focus on the mid to low end. It is a waste of time to focus on the high end

      Nokia cannot afford to lose out on the high-end segment. After all, that’s where the margins are.
