We are about 100% certain that Nokia will announce the Nokia 800/ Nokia Searay at Nokia World on the 26th next week, but if you want a sneak peak at the hardware we will be getting, this Engadget video review of the Nokia N9 is pretty close to what we can expect.
Love at first sight — this is possibly the most beautiful phone ever made. It’s not our first hardware love affair (we’re looking at you, iPhone 4S), nor likely our last, but the N9 is in a class of its own in terms of design. You’ve never seen anything like it, and if you think it’s attractive in pictures, wait until you see it in person — it’s completely and utterly irresistible. It manages to be elegant by virtue of its minimalism yet remains unmistakably Nokia. The impeccable proportions belie the handset’s 12.1mm (0.48-inch) thickness thanks to tapered ends reminiscent of its more ornate predecessor, the N8.
While Engadget predictably prefers Meego running on the hardware, I think I know what our readers prefer, although I would love that clock being brought over to WP7 also.
Thanks Milad for the tip.
