Nokia has done its best to separate Nseries and Eseries devices for a long time now, but despite their efforts, fanboys and critics alike seem to always come back to a few core complaints. Eseries devices have always had roadblocks like poor cameras and lack of attention with regards to multimedia. Conversely, the biggest hurdle facing the Nseries according to critics has been lack of a full keyboard. What if Nokia combined the best features of each series and created one device; their own “Jesus phone”? Would it silence the critics or do little more than cannibalize potential business? It looks like we’ll all be able to answer those questions and more in the second half of 2008. According to two of our reliable sources, Nokia is brewing a dynamo slated for a late-2008 release with some of the most impressive specs we’ve seen to date. Here’s what we can tell you: the device is not yet named but it will be an Nseries and will sport the S60 3rd Edition FP2 OS. The body is described as being similar to that of the E61i with a slender candy bar form factor and a full keyboard. That’s not a typo, guys! An Nseries with a full QWERTY keyboard! Details are limited with regards to the guts, but we do know that it will pack either a 5 or 6-megapixel camera with autofocus and 30fps DVD-quality video recording capabilities. We’ve also been told it will have integrated GPS and a few new goodies that will take the Nseries to the next level. With the impending release of the first S60 Touch device and now this beast, 2008 is shaping up to be quite a year for Nokia.
