Details of Nokia's Next MeeGo Devices Leaked

Nokia logoMeetMeego.org has the dirt on the details of Nokia's next two MeeGo devices [German]. To sum up: the first device, the (very) long-awaited N9, has a similar design to the N900 - a horizontal sliding 4-line keyboard, but this time with a tiltable screen, a 1GHz ARM Cortex A8-based processor, a 12MP camera with Carl Zeiss lens, and HDMI out. It will be a developer device, distributed at developer conferences such as the MeeGo Conference in San Francisco in a couple of days.

MeetMeego also managed to get their hands on photos and a video teaser of the N9; however the video has been taken down and now all we have to rely on is the description of it on the MeetMeeGo site [German]. Superturbo instant update: Here's a mirror for the video.

The second device will be marketed toward consumers and will likewise be coming out in "a few weeks". It will ditch the keyboard but be pimped out with a 1.4GHz processor. All of this is kind of exciting, just for the fact that *some* MeeGo-based devices are finally hitting the market.

On a side-note, meanwhile in tablet-land, the Intel/MeeGo-based WeTab (featuring essentially the same hardware as the Windows-based ExoPC) is available at all-time-low prices (at least in Germany/Europe). And as previously posted on this site, the new MeeGo SDK featuring QML goodness is ready. So as long as you don't think too much about the question of whether the platform will still be around in a few years, it's a great time to be a MeeGo developer.
