QWERTY totin' Nokia N9 appears in China

This Meego-powered QWERTY slider has been spotted making the way down China way today, and the branding on it clearly identifies it as the next model in the flagship N series; the N9.

The silver colour your looking at is brought to you by the device’s all-aluminium enclosure, but the the originator of the leak — Eldar Murtazin — says that it will also come in black. Good news for the Emos in the crowd.

Now, because this leak originated from China, there is usually a good chance that it’s of the “flattering” variety, but ol’ Eldar — who has a pretty good reputation in the phone blogging world — believes it’s legit.

According to Engadget, it’s scheduled for release in week 48 of this year (the first week of December), but — of course — there are no details on pricing or even countries of release just yet.

We’ll keep you posted as more details arrive, but, for the moment, check out the gallery below.
