Leaked Nokia "Lauta" shows keyboarded version of N9 - i.e. production version of N950
Editor: Ryan Abel
Images of a Nokia prototype for what's being described as an "immediate" N9 successor were leaked last week: Here we have 7 images of the N9 successor, codenamed Lauta. It was to be 'immediate successor' launched right after N9, also in Q4 2011. Of course, we all what happened with the Feb 11 Announcement, so no point bringing that up again. The email mentioned 'Elop saying only 3 MeeGo Phones in 3 years was huge lie'. [...] Specs I have been given, are that it was identical to N9, both in design and internal components, with the only differentiator being a full HW Keyboard.
This is certainly a sad reminder of the things that might have been had the Nokia board not lost its mind and turned the company into a Microsoft OEM.
