Confirming N9's existence, the Finnish mobile maker Nokia uploaded the new N9 ad video on YouTube and added some screenshots of UI in MeeGo's official Facebook page. Even though, the company pulled back both the video and photos, it was enough to spill the beans.
According to the video ad, Nokia N9 smartphone will look like the recently launched Nokia E7 with its slide-out QWERTY keypad. The video also suggests the OS would be MeeGo, which is a fusion of Nokia's previous Maemo OS and Intel's Moblin OS.
The new Nokia N9 smartphone will also have a 12 megapixel resolution camera with Carl Zeiss lens, which is similar to company's popular smartphone Nokia N8. The UI of the N9 looks very similar to that on the iPhone and Android-based competitors. It seems like Nokia is planning to compete with Google Android using another open source OS.
The N9 teaser ad ends with the tagline "our next sense," which suggests that Nokia has been planning more smartphones and tablets running on MeeGo. The ad video also gives hopes to users who believe that Nokia's alliance with Microsoft may halt the future of MeeGo.
It is expected that Nokia will unveil the new N9 smartphone during the coming months, making it a tough competitor to Android and iOS devices. We are keeping our eyes wide open to bring you the latest news on Nokia N9. So, stay tuned for more updates.
