The phone that was in question, was this phone right here….
Everyone thought it might be a Windows Phone because there was a card covering up the spot where the three magic Windows Phone buttons should be. Well it was not.
How do we know that? Because the man holding in the phone in the photo Reno Marioni (Director of Business Development, Global Social Partnerships, Nokia) came over himself to our site and left this comment on the post itself.
I was showing Robert the Nokia N9 with NFC capabilities – the white card is a NFC card. I was running to catch my flight to NYC and Robert asked if he could take a picture and I whipped out my NFC tag from my walled to demonstrate. I do have a top secret device and cannot show to anyone under any circumstances..for obvious reasons…[email protected] Whatley is right about the N9 + NFC
So case closed on this one right? Not so fast than there was this Tweet on September 10th on his Facebook page.
I don’t know if I should quite believe this one or not. This could just possibly be an inside joke to see how far it carries, it could be an ingenuous way to get some good old fashion free publicity, or it could be for real.
Somehow I don’t think Mr. Marioni will grace us with his presence again to solve this mystery.
