Before we get to Nokia’s showing at MWC today, we might as well start off with the handset that should have been announced in Barcelona this morning by our Finnish friends. Say hello to the N86 – leaked to the world this morning courtesy of… Nokia. The company has a history of being loose lipped but including info about an unannounced handset in a press pack has to be a new low. Hey, we’ll take it. The image above is extracted from a Nokia press document covering the background of Nokia’s business relationship with optics master Carl Zeiss. Little beyond the form factor can be ascertained from the document, though an image of the back of the phone does reveal a xenon flash to go along with that much anticipated 8 megapixel shooter. The screen looks to be a bit on the small side which makes us think it will not be touch-enabled but hey – baby steps. Nokia’s new Eseries sets are nice and all but this is the kit we want.
