Live Pics Galore of the Upcoming Nokia N79

We’re not sure exactly what we should be focusing on in this most recent round of live Nokia N79 pics; the handset or the wonderfully artistic backdrop of foliage. Well since we can’t just sit here chatting about leaves and such, we might as well talk about the handset a bit. Shown above in white, the N79 is undoubtedly the most odd Nseries handset we’ve seen in recent history. We keep going back and forth between, “eh, it’s not so bad” and “yeah, it’s bad”. These new images don’t really tell us anything we didn’t already know about the handset, although the great clarity really causes attention to draw toward the rear cover. The pattern on the back kind of looks like a Yankees uniform in desperate need of some ironing. What’s the deal with the sudden angle there fellas? JAMP seems to mirror what we all assumed in stating that the N79 is scheduled for an official announcement next Monday along with another handset, presumably the N85, though we can’t confirm either for the time being.

UPDATE: Thanks to our Chinese-speaking readers, we now know the images above (and the rest on the linked website) are fakes. Damn, these guys are getting good! Let’s hope the actual model does something about those pinstripes on the back cover…
