Leaked images of Nokia’s N9 reveal just how eager the fading brand is for a hit. Our phone needs to be popular – why not make it look like another popular thing? The QWERTY slider is a MacBook Pro doppelganger.
We already know a decent amount about the N9’s guts: a 4-inch screen, 8MP camera and a new MeeGo OS. But now, thanks to leaked images by way of China, we see the phone’s new clothes bite Apple’s distinctive black chiclet keyboard, silver body and space-age bezel.
We can’t say it looks bad, but it’ll be hard for Nokia to shake the obvious comparisons to Apple’s industrial design. [SlashGear]
