Nokia’s first Nseries touchscreen handset to come very soon. N97?

Everyone has kind of expected this, but it’s surely good to hear an official confirmation: Nokia will soon come up with an Nseries touchscreen smartphone. 

As reported by Cellpassion, Devinder Kishore, Nokia India’s Director of Marketing, said during an event held in New Delhi: “We will have lots of touchscreen phones coming up, including an N-series device very soon.” This “very soon” might mean that the official unveiling of the full-touch Nseries will happen before the end of 2008. Great news for all Nokia and Symbian fans, indeed.

The name of the first Nseries smartphone to come with a touchscreen display is not known for the moment, but it could very well be Nokia N97. A logical successor to N95 and N96.   

Almost certainly, the touchscreen Nseries device will run on the new Symbian S60 5th Edition OS, announced by Nokia at the same time with the 5800 XpressMusic. 

Since there is no word yet on how the first touchscreen Nseries looks like, I’ve combined the N96 with the interface of 5800, for a possible preview on the future smartphone:  

What do you think, could Nokia come up with something like this? 🙂 

Well, regardless of its design, the touchscreen Nseries will probably bring extra features when compared to the 5800 XpressMusic, which is just a mid-end smartphone. Perhaps an 8 MP camera will come with this baby, but let’s better wait for the Finns to say more about it themselves.
