Last month we saw a Nokia N8 Clone sporting an Android Clone UI. Not really Android, just a skin that made it appear to look like Android.

Well, back in August a picture of a Nokia N8 Clone was found, complete with Android 2.1 and Android buttons.

More details surface from Yesky that says this is a dual core ARM 9?!

  • Alloy Case
  • 3.5″ Resistive (bright and clear)
  • 800×480
  • Android 2.1 with back, menu, home page, search buttons
  • 115 × 60 × 14mm (real N8 113.5 x 59 x 12.9 mm)
  • Rockchip ARM 9 (Not A9!) Dual Core 600MHz + DSP 500MHz (Real Nokia N8 ARM 11, 680MHz with Broadcom GPU)
  • Smooth 720p playback apparently
  • 128MB RAM << erm what?
  • 256MB ROM
  • 5.0 MP Camera Dual LED
  • Headphone Jack
  • MicroSD up to 32GB
  • WiFi
  • A-GPS
  • Gravity-sensor
  • Bluetooth 2.0 +EDR with A2DP stereo headset profiles
  • 1400mAh battery, good for 2 days use supposedly (not sure if it’s replaceable)

Well, that’s not your typical knock off bargain basement dual-SIM fanfare that we’re used to. Not sure what the price is.

Not really a Nokia post, but an intriguing watch nonetheless. Basically how a modern mobile OS should feel and how the UI should look. Nokia touch phones are often more functional [aka plain/boring] when it comes to the UI. Only recently with the N900 have Nokia users experienced eye candy UI out of the box. For me, I’m hungry for more as it just adds to the whole user experience made by a great OS and an alluring UI.

It doesn’t have to be style versus substance. Why not have both?

  • Animated and interactive wallpapers – gimmicky maybe but undeniably stunning. Wonder how this will affect its battery life
  • Very fast. Only a few minor hiccups here and there.
  • [Complete integration with google services]

Now imagine the quashed rumours of Nokia making an Android Handset were true? Nokia Aseries – with all other Nokia hardware excellence to boot.

Who’ll up the deliver 2010-level eye candy first? Maemo or Symbian?
