Video: Hands on with the Leaked Nokia N9/N8-QWERTY variant/E7 (RM-626)

| June 28, 2010 | Reply

As promised by NegriElectronics here’s some more dishy news on what they call the Nokia N9.

Note, Eldar has said that this is an old proto. There may already have been changes to what he’s already got.

  • Name yet not confirmed. But this is NOT the N9 as that will have MeeGo. This is Symbian^3.
  • Slim looking QWERTY
  • HDMI
  • Screen looking bigger than 3.5″ or is that just me being hopeful?
  • Screen looks to be AMOLED
  • Rotate transition is slightly more acceptable. A very fast fade in fade out that does not fade to black (to make it look like it’s frozen)
  • Can’t be nHD – The small print of the text looks too sharp. WVGA at least? (not accounting for exact ratio here)
  • Solid sounding snap as the keyboard pops open. (I do love N97 form factor and that slide!). And it does flick and pop open (not a passive push)
  • Back end has a small bar (it doesnt run all the way along the length of the device like the N97.)
  • Check out the new volume switch/rocker thing next to the SIM port.




Recorded today. What's with that front-facing-looking LED flash?

It may just be the angle but it's looking pretty slim here. And the screen looks bigger than 3.5" though it may just be wishful thinking.

The curved thing in the corner is the tip of his thumb. The text is much too sharp to be 640x360

back lit 4-row QWERTY with a solid sounding snap as it slides open.

Back. Slightly different to N97 with only a partial hinge.

SIM card port and look at that new volume rocker switch. No single button, you slide the volume/zoom either way.
