We recently heard that a Nokia handset with the model number RM-680 had passed FCC approval. Said handset looks suspiciously like the Nokia N9, judging from the concept drawing.
The it’s-on-again rumour was given further credence yesterday when a 52-second video (check it out on YouTube) surfaced, with the tagline “Our Next Sense”.
There had been rumours that Nokia had ditched the N9 – or the keyboard, at least – over concerns with the slider’s durability. However the video clearly shows the N9 rocking a full QWERTY.
Nokia wouldn’t confirm to Slashgear if the video was official, so there’s always the chance it was an internal thingy which was never intended to see the light of day.
The Nokia N9 saga is still completely up in the air. There’s a MeeGo conference in San Francisco next week, but apparently there’s a gag order on the RM-680 until 24 June. Confusing stuff.
