PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless MeetMeego.org has the dirt on the details of Nokia's next two MeeGo devices [German]. To sum up: the first device, the (very) long-awaited N9, has a similar design to the N900 - a horizontal sliding 4-line keyboard, but this time with a tiltable screen, a 1GHz ARM Cortex A8-based processor, a 12MP camera with Carl Zeiss lens, and HDMI out. It will be a developer device, distributed at developer conferences such as the MeeGo Conference in San Francisco in a couple of days.

You must be joking! This is Nokia. They'll cut out everything, make it low power as it gets and charge you as much as everyone else.
For a dev device Cortex A8 is passé

The thing is, this worked with Symbian, because Symbian was designed for mobile and embedded devices in the first place. But since Nokia apparently now wants to go "the wow starts now", and get into Microsoft OSs on one side and Linux with lots of GPU-accelerated eye candy on another side, they'll also have to put very fast and power-hungry hardware before things work smoothly, whether they like it or not.
