Nokia N9 Details Revealed On Twitter

A conversation between two Nokia bloggers has revealed some juicy details regarding the up-coming Nokia N9 smartphone.

The follow up to the N97 was first seen in a leaked video last June and it has been rumoured that the device will be the first MeeGo-powered Nokia handset. A conversation between @camb078 and @addiermedina on Twitter has thrown up a lot of new details about the N9 and could hint at a Q1 release in 2011.

The most impressive figure could surprisingly be in the realm of gaming. A dedicated gaming engine will be able to display 190 million polygons per second according to the Twitter conversation. If this is true, it will be way out ahead of other phones on the market and even compare well with most consoles. The PS2 clocked in at 66 million polygons/second, the PlayStation 3 at 275 million polygons/second, the Wii at about 100 million polygons/second, the Xbox 360 at 300 million polygons/second and the Nokia N8 at just 35 million polygons/second.

The N9 will have a 4.2in AMOLED screen though no info on the resolution was revealed. It will sport a 1.2GHz processor, a new 1600mAh battery, 1GB of ROM, 768MB of RAM and an impressive 12-megapixel camera with a Carl Zeiss Lens.

It will be the MeeGo platform combined with the slimmed down design of the N9 that could really convert people and get Nokia back on the smartphone map. We could see this phone unveiled at Mobile World Congress in February though it will probably be later in 2011 when it will be available to consumers.

It's the software, stupid!

I have a Nokia C7: it's an excellent device. Can't understand why TR seems to ignore these Symbian^3 handsets completely ...

Ignore? I'm getting one in tomorrow. They just tend to be rubbish is all.

@Ed I hope your review will be a little bit more subtile ...

@swift11 Ed think's any smartphone with more than one button is below par.

It says 19 million not 190 million in the Twitter feed ;)

Certainly looking forward to Meego - love Maemo and the flexibility

@Ash if you look a little further down the Twitter Feed you will see that the figure of 19 million is corrected to 190 million

@LetsGo - I think any smartphone without a full qwerty keyboard is below par. It's a matter of horses for courses. I don't like losing the screen estate for a virtual keyboard, and like to be able to see the reason I'm typing!

@Kaurisol - The Nokia E7 is a Symbian^3 handset with a keyboard ...
