Just got an invite to an event next week where Nokia will show a "yet to be named device"... Windows Phone much?

Doubted if it's Windows Phone. Nokia X7 maybe? NZ out of all the countries in the world is prob not the best place to showcase a new device and that too by the likes of Nokia.

I really hope it's WP7 though.

I didn't mention there will be a live streaming of Nokia's CEO Ellop at the event. So it's not lile "NZ out of all the countries in the world" but a concerted event around the world.

would be awesome if they actually able to get it out quite a few months early, definitely haven't
got news coming in the Nokia Developers newsletters.

Just trying to keep interest up after the latest google and apple events?

They'll announce a handset and a date... but the date will still be towards the end of the year.

They're trying not to be forgotten.

Nokia N9 running meego will be introduced most likely then. Nokia has promised a Windows Phone device by end of the year. I'd say they will prob release it by October like all the other OEM's who will refresh their hardware in the same month along with the mango update.

freitasm: I am told it is Meego and Symbian :'(


I'm guessing that it's going to be either one or the other. :)

Unless there are 2 yet to be named devices. Most likely the N9 / N950 or whatever they eventually call it (running Meego-Harmattan). Apparently it has been through FCC approval process, which indicates some sort of public release is planned.

My guess it will be the N9 or the N950 which some are saying is a replacement for the N9.  Nokia have announced they will be announcing a “Market disrupting device” at Nokia Connections in Singapore on June21st. 

The N9 is reported as running Meego OS.  Meego is a development of Maemo and owners of the N900 which ran Maemo were very impressed with the Maemo OS.

If it is the N9 that is announced and it indeed does run Meego, it is an interesting development as it has been reported on several sites that Nokia had ditched Meego.

The N9 hardware had been described had being near perfect  though as of late last year the OS was reported as having some rough edges.  It’s reasonable to think that it has been much refined since then.  It’s certainly a very nice looking handset with a pop out keyboard like the E7.

Here’s some unofficial specs that have been quoted on some sites for the N9. An Intel 1.6 GHz processor, 1GB RAM, 200 MHz GPU with 512MB RAM, 480 x 854 pixel display, HDMI output, Broadcom BCM4751 GPS chip, NPX Semiconductor PN544 NFC controller, Infineon XMM 6260 3G modem (21 Mbps HSPA+) and a Texas Instruments WiLink 6.0 WL1271 chip (802.11N) WiFi, Bluetooth.

As much as it will be interesting to see what device is announced, it will be even more interesting to see what Nokia’s plans are for Meego, (assuming the device runs Meego).  It is my belief that Nokia as a major handset manufacturer needs a point of difference and I don’t think WP7 will do that for them.  Perhaps Meego will be the OS point of different for some of their high end phones.

How will Meego fit along side WP7?  What are the long term plans for Meego especially with the recent departure of one of the executives involved with Meego?  Will the N9 (or the N950) be the start of a lineup of Meego handsets and perhaps other devices (Tablets, Netbooks etc) from Nokia, or will it be another one off fantastic handset like the N900?
