Nokia’s Smartphone line-up for 2009

Nokia logo





It’s a great thing to know that Nokia’s planning to knock the spec sheets out of the park in 2009. With the line up of prototype phones to hit the last quarter of 2008 and first quarter next year, Notable goodies include the “Corolla” with a 3-inch VGA display and 8MP camera, the “Jig” landscape slider for AT&T, and the “Eitri,” a monster QWERTY candybar with a 640×350 display and 5-megapixel camera. Great line up, but isn’t Nokia are too late on the smart phone race? The battle are already hitting up for this year last quarter.

The prototype availability list below, in many cases, these devices are available in a series of successive prototype builds that improve on elements of the hardware before they’re blessed and released to manufacturing for retail. Lots of these projects are either ultimately canceled, rolled into future projects, or were always intended for internal development use, so we won’t necessarily end up seeing everything that’s listed here.
