Nokia N9 (Or C0) Leaks Out; Sports an 8MP Camera, NAM 3G, and Possibly MeeGo For Launch

Labels: , , , ,

So, a new Nokia handset has just been spotted in the wild. It's being called the N9 right now by a bunch of different sites but the device full says that it's the C0 if you look in the top left of the display. This is looking to be a prototype or something right now and it could be joining the C-Series of devices from Nokia. The device itself is clearly running the Symbian OS along with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, an 8MP camera with a dual-LED flash, a front-facing camera with an LED flash, 850/1900MHz 3G bands for North America, and an nHD (360 x 640 resolution) touchscreen display. Apparently, this handset will actually be launching with the MeeGo OS so it could actually be an N-Series device. Let's just wait and see what happens...
