The N950 is here too, but not for you !

Posted on 4:02 PM by SlipKoRnSaad

Yes, as we know the Nokia N9 has been already announced this morning stirs envy. It is however not up to the expectations of some including me, who expected the first smartphone MeeGo it is a worthy heir to the N900, mainly due to the disappearance of the slider. They can rest assured that Nokia is also launching the "N950" variant "developer" of the N9 but not for public, not for sale !

The "Nokia N950" inherits the crucial points of the specifications of the N9, but ignores some of its refinements. It benefits in return for a slider, which is well worth the sacrifices to some mobile users.

"Exchange against keyboard screen, camera and connectivity"

The screen version of the developer just to start a LCD panel, not AMOLED. The tenth of an inch of additional diagonal (4.0 against 3.9 inches) is a small consolation, but of course they display the same definition FWVGA (848 x 480 pixels).

The dorsal sensor N950 is also "different" from that of the N9, without to much lower quality, but in any case deprived of light stamped Carl Zeiss lens of the latter.

Its connectivity is finally partially amputated, since swapped the one hand the latest Bluetooth 4.0 standard for tireless 2.1, and the other is deprived of NFC.

The same vital components

He inherited, however, the same TI OMAP 3630 SoC clocked at 1 GHz, carrying a PowerVR SGX GPU 530, all supported by 1 GB of RAM LPDDR. Storage is finally performed by the same amount of from 16 to 64 GB of flash memory.

Not content to communicate or not the price or the date of marketing, which is not good since it has not done either for the original, Nokia has not even published a photo of the N950.

Come on, Nokia, please get a clue! Bring the N950 up to the specs and polish of the N9, release it and SUPPORT it, and you've got an instant winner on your hands, as many N900 owners like me would much prefer a hardware keyboard (a resistive touchscreen like the N900's too, but that's another matter).
