If you haven’t heard, Nokia Conversations had a post today titled Future Devices and innovations at Nokia. Could this be Nokia’s round-about way to confirm the leaked N9 advert without actually confirming anything? They’ve already pulled the video from PocketNow’s Youtube channel, though many many other copies have popped up. This is a note to all you companies and PR out there, once it’s on the internet you can’t get rid of it, ever!
There’s always plenty of rumours flying around about Nokia. Just a couple of days ago, a whole fresh crop appeared on a number of websites regarding a new mystery device. But it should be no surprise that new things are in the wings somewhere. Innovation is something that’s pretty much native to Nokia – if you go through our history of industry firsts, that should be readily apparent.
Personally I’d consider this confirming that the advert video from Tuesday is a legitimate video, even though they don’t specifically confirm the N9.
At the moment, of course, our technology is far from natural. There’s nothing natural about icons and drop-down lists and tickboxes. It would probably be better if you could just swipe through your apps, wouldn’t it?
Hmmm, if you recall, in the video the UI was being navigated simply by swiping….
But the possibilities are endless… and very exciting. We can’t wait to show you more – maybe a sneak peek at “Jessie’s Girl” – in the weeks to come.
Makes sense to me. I’m probably younger than most people think, but growing up with parents who listened to older music, this is an OBVIOUS reference the soundtrack from the video which is Jessie’s Girl by Rick Springfield. Even more proof that this video was in fact a legitimate video showing an upcoming device. At this point, looks like we are going to have to wait this out, there’s definitely something we don’t know about!
