Nokia is showing advertisement for their upcoming touchscreen phone at Capital Markets Day in Brooklyn. The photo of the new handset shows a phone with touchscreen covering the entire front with no hard buttons. In the promotional material Nokia claims “best in class touch solution enables large volume and growth,” and “Direct UI simplifies interaction with standard strokes and gestures”.
Direct UI is a new interface that promises to allow gestures to control the handset. It is very much possible that under the hood the new phone will be very similar to Nokia’s just announced N97 handset. Nokia has neither confirmed nor denied the new handset. Also there is no word on whether the new touchscreen phone is a working prototype or just proof of concept. But after seeing pictures of the new N97 that Nokia just announced and the above phone images we can say that the above phone should have been N97, maybe Nokia will call it N99.
