Tomorrow, Nokia is expected to unveil its first round of Windows Phone 7.5 handsets. It’s very likely that one of them will look a lot, or identical, to the star of this video: the Nokia N9. The N9 is Nokia’s first, and last, smartphone running on MeeGo, a fledgling operating system that has already been replaced by a new open-source project called Tizen.
We’re not sure why Nokia made this video, but with a little bit of narration it could easily be featured in an episode of How It’s Made on the Discovery Channel. Watch the camera hold being drilled by a machine and the screws being inserted manually by engineers. We have to say, though its screen is a bit small at 3.7 inches, the N9 is a good looking phone. We hope that one of Nokia’s offerings is the N9 and that the company is able to get decent distribution here in the United States.
The video is below, courtesy of Nokia’s YouTube channel. Find out more about the N9 here.
