Nokia's First MeeGo Smartphone Unveiled

When Intel and Nokia first announced their plans to merge Moblin and Maemo many were sceptical, but the response to MeeGo 1.0 has been hugely promising making us quite excited about this...

The first ad for the company's impending flagship 'N9' has been leaked onto the Web (as just about everything is these days) and in truth it's pretty uninformative. We learn the N9 is a slimmer, nicer looking version of the N97 and - this being Nokia - it will undoubtedly come packed with tonnes of storage and all the usual connectivity (plus hopefully HDMI which is a nice, slow burning trend in smartphones).

MeeGo is the real draw, however, so fingers crossed we don't encounter the same six month wait that accompanied the N97.

In related news Nokia has officially shown off the 'X5-01', a follow-up to its other square handset the Twist and similar to Motorola's Flipout.

It's 2.36in 320 x 240 pixel display, 5MP camera with LED flash, FM tuner 200MB of internal memory and Symbian S60 3rd Edition UI don't make it a world beater, but the 165 euro sim free RRP is certainly noteworthy.

A new handset for the tweens?
