Close your eyes if you will, and imagine the awesome piece of kit that might have taken the 8 megapixel skater shot we showed you yesterday. Sleek, sexy, smooth lines. A big, bright VGA display perhaps – maybe even S60 5th Edition and a touchscreen. Gobs of internal memory with microSDHC support as well, and even blazing-fast 3.5G and Wi-Fi to send those giant image files anywhere they might need to go.

It was officially announced this past week and we’re hoping it’s stuffed into a corner at Nokia’s MWC booth this week to make room for some much, much more exciting announcements such as the unveiling of whatever snapped that picture on Friday.
