Nokia N9 Details Appear Online, Uses Dual Cortex A9 CPU?

More details of Nokia's forthcoming Meego-based N9 smartphone have emerged on Twitter during a conversation between @camb078 and @addiermedina, the later works on Nokia's team in Mexico.

The N9 will apparently feature an ARM A9 Cortex Dual Core clocked at 1.2GHz (28nm manufacturing process so most probably a dual core) and capable of spitting 190 million polygons per second.

We seriously suspect that N9 will use the ST Ericsson U8500 processor which is a dual core model clocked at up to 1.2GHz and comes with ARM Mali 400 GPU.

The other claims reported include a 4.2-inch AMOLED display, a 1600mAh battery, 1GB ROM, 768MB RAM, a 12-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss Optic, GPS, Wi-Fi, HD video capture, 64GB storage, a slide out QWERTY keyboard with micro chiclet keys and Meego 1.2 OS.

The N9, which looks like a miniature MacBook Air, is set to be released in the first quarter of 2011, possibly at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February.
