Nokia is soon going to be launched the still unnamed RM-626 which if early reports are to be believed, is a variation of the soon to be shipped Unlocked Nokia ( N8 ). This new phone will be either classified as N9 or may be as a part of the C series going by the C0 sign on the top left hand corner of the phone. We have managed to check out videos which show off this phone.
Earlier Negri had given us a tantalizing look at this phone by giving a set of three photographs of a prototype phone from Nokia. However they have given us a four minute hands on video of this phone. After watching this video, we have seen that there is C0-00 marked on the back of the phone, although the phone setting says N00. However this is beside the point as this phone really succeeds in the features that it provides the users.
In terms of looks, this phone looks really like the N8 but with only slight changes. It is thinner and has a sliding key pad which feels really smooth and dependable. Its keys look similar to the Nokia N97 Unlocked Gadget which is not necessarily a good thing. However, on the plus side, it has 4 rows of keys rather than the 3 of the earlier. This therefore means that the space bar is finally where it should be. The RM-626 therefore will be a hit among the QWERTY fans.
Although the N8 comes with a 12 megapixel camera with a Xenon flash, The RM-626 has an 8 megapixel camera with LED flash, however one need not be discouraged as the camera quality is not really that bad. As for the software, this phone seems to be using the Symbian^3 platform which means that the MeeGo and Maemo are going to be disappointed. The prices and availability is still unknown to us.
