The concept that caught my attention today is the Nokia N99 which is equipped with a HTC-like side sliding full QWERTY keyboard and seems to be a close relative of Nokia’s N800 Internet Table.
Of course, the guy that did all the work took care of it and pimped it up with a flower-power style 9-way joystick which, combined with the sleek looks of the N800 and the overall white pearl color of the device, kind of gives me the sensation that the individual which designed it carries an iPod in his pocket all day long and has its ears carefully covered with the iPod’s earphones.
The one that put it all together also sent in a virtual spec sheet to make all the Nokia fans drool on their monitors while reading it, a spec sheet saying that this device should have a 16 GB Flash internal memory, a miniSD memory expansion card slot that can go up to 4 GB (who’s needing miniSD when you have 16 GB of built-in memory? ), a 3.2 inch real 16:9 wide screen (not like the iPhone), a multimedia player with MP3, DivX, XviD, MPEG and AVI files, GPS capability, Wi-Fi wireless connectivity and a 8 megapixel digital camera capable of recording videos at 30 frames per second.
Summing it up, this is pretty much the dream of everyone that ever used a mobile device and I advise you not to try calculating what the N99 would cost because the number will be quite astronomical.
