My Dream Nokia #8: Nokia N9 MeeGo Phone Slider Concept with edge to edge display

| December 17, 2010 | 16 Replies

My Dream Nokia Number 8 comes by way of Jim who found these concept MeeGo Phone Photos on the MeeGo forum. They’re designed by a guy called “SuperHero” who is an old user of Linux, the Nokia n900 and a programmer.

It is titled Nokia N9. There are no details other than what can be observed from design.

I think they look pretty slick. There are 9 images in total, one in particular showing the slide out QWERTY which is somewhat curved in action like early Xperias from Sony Ericsson though looking much nicer.

The screen seems huge, with near edge to edge, borderless display.

He’s got an interesting concept of multitasking whilst during a call, i.e. simultaneously be on a call and carry on doing some other function (and not simply by just going around the menu and leaving the call in the background but an actual intended function)


Imagine the possibilities of having both a phone call and a window to the things you were doing before you received that call, like for example: you were chatting with someone or even checking some Facebook(desktop widget) updates on your phone while on a call. Some of u might think that its useless, but i have been noticing lately the majority of people use Bluetooth and the hand does not go to the ear, and 2 people use loud speakers many times so…

Here is how it works: As the call comes and answered everything at the back blurs out, but not so much that nothing is visible, so the call is in the foreground but everything in the background everything is visible.

The phone looks nice at the front with edge to edge display, virtually no border.

About “My Dream Nokia”

I’m sure you’ve dreamt up your PERFECT Nokia phone. What it would look like, what it would feel like, what features it would have. Maybe you’ve found someone else’s interesting design. Why don’t you share it with the world? Or at least with other Nokia fans :D .

It could be your own photoshopped or rendered work (seriously, you don’t need mega skills in either, basic paint job is often enough to convey a concept) of your dream product.

SEND this in similarly to with the title “My Dream Nokia” and perhaps the model number (and a little description, maybe a few specs in the message area? Though this bit not necessary).

Who knows, maybe an image might flutter over to Nokia and through whatever route end up being real.

    Edge to edge displays are admittedly gorgeous…. issue is robustness in almost every case though :-(.

    Not sure the ability of current types of glass to resist trauma on their edge surfaces. Case in point, Iphone 4

      1 to that. Te concept is great except for the edge to edge display. Itvwould make it very easy to touch something on the screen accidentally. Even if you’re trying to get the slider qwerty out, you would definitely touch something on screen, but the rest looks great to me

  • Joker

    Wonderful … Someone tell that we want a Nokia phone of this type. =)

  • dsmobile

    nanotechnology might make this type of screen happen someday. 🙂

    • EdgarN***

      yes dsmobile, maybe not to far , this screen edges could be made of nanotubes wich are several times harder than steel, so if you droped the phone, maybe the floor would scratch haha. (and this also goes for you NokiaN900U)

      And also the processor could be runnig even faster than the actual i7 becouse of the nanowires working as transistors, and so the list goes on..

      hope one day this dream comes true.

      • The issue wouldn’t be materials, but having parts of the display obscured while holding it in landscape mode. The bars are actually rests for the thumbs. Now the longer edges could be places where bezels could shrink, but not the top and bottom.

  • NokiaN900User

    This will never happen. There will always be some form of border around the screen. I could imagine the first drop test failing on this if it’s made. Even TVs still have borders

  • Joker

    Coverflow shown that in the first image will be part of Meego in reality?

    • Sam

      No, bu if they do something similar to that then, consider the iPhones media player a gonna, its a matter of what nokia decides

  • Scapegoat81

    I have to be honest, it was very interesting to see all of these “concept phones” over the past month or so, but i haven’t had that much interest in them. Now THIS grabbed my FULL ATTENTION. This is design is simply phenomenal. If this phone EVER comes to be a reality, I WILL be ALL OVER IT..

  • the concept is quite wonderful, lets make it real 🙂

  • 2beers

    looks nice BUT
    – why the huge space-wasteing space button?
    – 1st keyboard line seems to be even closer to display than it allready is on the n900

    if it gets a cam i’d like a good one (NOT super extra and more MP! Good=decent pics (6MP is sufficent!) – in low light => a good chip) & have it centered in the middle – combined with the possibility to use a statif (centered as well of course)
