Nokia N9 open

Sure, Nokia recently made its N8 available for pre-order, but maybe you'd prefer a QWERTY keyboard or a different OS on your device.  Good news, because photos of the Nokia N9 have leaked out in all its QWERTY-fied glory.  Chinese site Baidu has posted photos of the device which is said to still be a prototype, the source explains, because it's not the final retail shape.  Still the N9 in the photos reportedly has a full metallic body, save for the keyboard, USB port, and a few other decorative parts.  As for the OS, Eldar Murtazin has weighed in and said that it is MeeGo, which you can see in action right here.  Finally, the source of the leak has said that the N9 is expected to be released in the 48th week, aka the beginning of December.

I don't know about you, but I think the device in these photos is definitely one of the hottest I've seen in recent memory.  If it is, in fact, constructed mostly out of metal, that just makes the whole thing even better.  As I said before, the N9 is rumored to be coming out in December; if that's true, we should start seeing more leaks of it in the near future.  Stay tuned!
