A teaser video of the much rumoured N9 smartphone has surfaced. Yes; that super-duper smartphone that was supposed to be running MeeGo. You know how we have all been waiting for MeeGo.
Only, the video shows that this device runs Symbian Anna. That much is obvious from the user interface and icons. Unless, MeeGo has been skinned on this device to look like our dear lady Anna.
So, this device is a slider QWERTY, runs Anna or an Anna-look-alike-MeeGo, and has a 12 megapixel camera with dual LED flash.
Errr…. that sounds like the E7 with a different camera; doesn’t it? We love Nokia here (just like we Samsung, Sony Ericsson and the others), but sometimes we just don’t get it.
While aspects of the UI do look like Symbian Anna, a few touches here and there certainly sway us to believe that the N9 is indeed running MeeGo. We still do not think that its a good idea for Nokia’s MeeGo UI to look so much like Symbian’s. Except, Nokia are looking to replace Symbian with MeeGo, in which case we’ll make an exception.
