Is this Nokia E6-00?

[tweetmeme source=”nkumar_” only_single=”false”]

Thanks to our reader calvin, we received a schema video of Nokia E6-00. Not sure if it is the right design or not but the design sure fits into the rumors that has been leaked about this device. There are reasons to believe that this might be just a design based on the rumors, but it looks interesting for sure.

Noticeable is the high resolution Symbian^3 styled widgets on screen, fitting the rumor of its being a Touch-n-Type device. We have seen Touch-n-Type in S40 segment only till date and yet to see that how it will take it shape in such form factor.

 

The design of Call and Call End keys also fits into words from Alex68 and Eldar. The long space bar like we seen in Nokia E71 and Nokia E5-00, the design seem to have a bezel around like E72 and if specs are as high as noted in many forums, then sure it might fit into next buy for many.

The things that makes it look like a fake or just design are absence of visible proximity sensor and front camera and somewhere it look like someone taken the photo of Nokia E71 and enlarged it to fit Symbian^3 screen into it (though we seen such widgets in leaked Nokia N86 processor though), but who doesn’t love the rumors?

If you were not following the rumors around Nokia E6, then the E72 successor seems to be a touch-n-type device with around 2.8” screen with a superb resolution of 640×480 VGA screen (just think of pixel density) though Symbian^3 devices been 640×360 nHD due to limitations in OS, but may be Nokia has crossed over those limitation. It is also rumored to have a 8MP camera like C7-00/E7-00 with LED flash and also rumored to come with new version of Symbian^3 firmware with browser 7.3.

Upcoming Symbian^3 updates, what and when?

[tweetmeme source=”nkumar_” only_single=”false”]

Even if every second blogger seems to be bashing over Nokia and their strategies, there is one thing that everyone seems to be curious about that what are those 50+ improvements that Nokia keeps talking about for first quarter of 2011. What are those 5 incremental planned updates throughout the year 2011 and what they gonna bring for you? Let’s try to catch some butterflies from here and there.

 

With that old community poll and design competition, we sure have a strong hint that what might be our MeeGo sweetheart hardware exterior design, even if one can neither be confirmed on the interiors hardware nor could be certain about the software UI part at least yet but you can’t deny that by these looks, its set to make people go crazy for sure. If Nokia could take a jump from 15 frames/second to 60 frames/second UI fresh rate while coming from Symbian^1 to Symbian^3, then sure there should be nothing that you can’t expect them to do, even if there would be some reasonable limitations of time and business logic.

Nokia N9 Leaked? Is Nokia N9 already in hands of testers?

[tweetmeme source=”nkumar_” only_single=”false”]

Just spotted some last day tweets from a guy on twitter named @SimonLR from Toronto, Ontario, who claims to have visited a friend, who does have almighty Nokia N9, everyone is talking about now days. Though he already have mentioned that he can’t disclose much of the device as his friend must be bound by usual legal rules.

No pictures allowed. No off-device/camera samples. No dissassembly. You guys know the rules. C’mon.

But check out what he says ..

Android and iOS don’t have shit on this. Not even close5:38 AM Dec 10th via N9

The twitter client from which he tweeted takes us to the Nokia NSeries official page, which indicates a brand new twitter client other than Nokia Social. Much needed as the common opinion is “Nokia Social sucks”. And when he says that it’s a brand new experience than iOS and Android then it meant something big… real real big.

    Cool!5:36 AM Dec 10th via N9

    Nokia fans, save your money for the next few months5:33 AM Dec 10th via N9

    This keyboard is spacious4:55 AM Dec 10th via N9

    Some of the impressions as mentioned above shows that there are pretty big reasons to wait for the device itself. Definitely some impressive things are cooking somewhere.

    There’s home screen widgets4:52 AM Dec 10th via Nokia N9 Widget

    This particular tweet not only shows that widgets do exists in the new Home Screen UI, but if you follow the link of the twitter client source then it indicates that you will be able to tweet directly from the Home Screen Widget itself that will be available from Ovi Store. Cool!!.. interesting to note the fact that the main client and widget have two different sources, which in my opinion says that social services are built in at core levels and available through out the UI by various means. More intuitive, more integrated and more comfortable.

    @davidgilson MeeGo.com Handset Ref UX is not what Nokia’s MeeGo iteration is5:39 AM Dec 10th via N9

    As about more on the UI, then he already mentions that its completely different than we might have seen and as many already know, its different from the one MeeGo shows off at least till now.

        Ovi Maps icon does nothing5:29 AM Dec 10th via N9

        WiFi here is real spotty. I wonder if a Skype call will work…5:26 AM Dec 10th via N9

        No carrier branding so far5:12 AM Dec 10th via N9

        I wonder if GPS works5:03 AM Dec 10th via N9

        Ovi Store doesn’t work5:00 AM Dec 10th via N9

          The above tweets also shows that this is in no case a finished product as of now. In earlier tweet, he already did mentioned that its still a far story for some months at least. May be Q3 as many already guessing.

          To know more about him in person, you can check out the official page of him here. As of now, he owns a Nokia N900 and also a blog named http://www.knownokia.ca/. We can’t be sure that how authentic he is, but there was a tweet by his one friend @MikeMacias saying below  via MyNokiaBlog

          I don’t know if @SimonLR got his hands on N9 today but don’t think he’d kid. Simon resigned from @mobile_fanatics and TMF doesn’t have it

          Interesting.. isn’t it? What’s say?
