BREAKING: Upcoming Nokia Devices

Share Button

Today the entire upcoming line of Nokia devices was leaked, we aren’t aware of from where the information comes and how old is it.  It is a list of 35 Nokia devices, some of them already released, others cancelled, while a small part of these will probably be cancelled, although most will be eventually released to the market.

The list  seems slightly outdated because it includes devices such as the N82 and N95 8GB, which were released in 2007. It starts with the N95 8GB and specifies its availability at the 22nd week of 2007 (June).  If we look back, the N95 8GB was announced in August which is the 31th week and released in October.

Another example is the N82, the list shows week 42 (Mid October 2007) as the available date, it was announced to the public soon after in week 45 (November) and was available immediately.  So far so good, the dates shown in the list are relatively close to the actual availability date. But is not the case on every device shown by the list.

The N96 shows week 0 of 2008 as ”available” and the  N85 shows week 50 of 2007 as ”available”. The N96 was actually ready for market after the N85!!  The N96 was announced close to the list’s date but was released almost 6 months later. And the N85 was announced in August, almost one year after the  availability date in the list. The conclusion is, that although this list is very specific, it does not determine the actual availability date. The availability date is decided by the marketing department, so we cannot form conclusions as of the release date to market.

Now the fun part, the ”supposedly” upcoming models.

The lists confirms the E71 rumor for AT&T and also the downgrade of the E71 that was leaked during the Symbian Smartphone Show (E63) .  Then it shows an interesting unit called ”Surfer” which will have 2.6 inch QVGA screen with QWERTY keyboard, my guess is that it will be the phone with the Slide-Out QWERTY keyboard, the Nokia E75.

A mysterious “IPO8″ that will run S60 5th edition, meaning it is a touch-screen device, is also in the list. The really interesting part is that it will have QWERTY keyboard, I presume it will be such as an HTC Touch Pro, but with a larger screen. The other specifications are current standards for Nseries devices (5 megapixel camera with autofocus, GPS, Wi-Fi, TV-OUT, etc). If we continue reading the list, it shows an upgrade to the IPO8 which will have a 3.5” inch display, 32GB of ROM and gesture support as an interface.

Now my favorite of the list, the ”Madeleine”. it will have an amazing 3.0” VGA display and will run S60 3rd edition meaning it is touch-less. It is the only phone in the list with a 8MP camera. I think that Nokia creates this difference in purpose so non-touch devices are appealing to a big segment of the market. Another very interesting capability is the Half-QWERTY keyboard. It sounds like a N95 8GB replacement, sadly the list says it will be under development until March of the following year.

The list is quite amazing, I have never seen such a big leak coming from the number one manufacturer. But as I said before, we can’t get into conclusions, maybe there are more devices apart from those in the list, maybe it is a fake list, or maybe none of these devices will see the light. Also there are strong chances that this list was created before May of 2007. I doubt it is the entire Nokia line, and maybe the devices had gained features since this list was created.

For now, this list is just a BIG rumor:
