checking those fcc papers, they mention the bl-4d 1200mah battery, while those pics of last summer mentioned an unknown 1320mah bv-4d battery.

Though the FCC listing is interesting, as it gives us a date we can actually see things:

The FCC papers mention the BL-4D battery used in the N8, E7, N97 and E5. But this is a downgrade in terms of capacity from 1320mAh on the n900's BL-5J to 1200mAH. I hope they managed to hone the power consumption on this device.

Well the N8 has far superior battery life to the N900 and N97 and even 5800

This is exactly how I feel. We're talking about perhaps early 2010-late 2009 hardware in mid 2011. (From the maemo summit in 09, the hardware may have already been finalized after that) The hardware will be outdated upon release, but at the state at which technology improves, what hardware isnt already outdated?

wait with judging until you see the hardware.

At one time there were rumors that the N9 had been cancelled, so hopefully they ditched the 2009/2010 internal HW and updated it to current standards and kept the slick casing/external HW. That design with a powerful dual-core CPU, a likewise powerful GPU and plenty of memory would be sweet.

I just can't make up my mind wether I want to give Nokia any money at all out of fear that it goes towards their M$ winblows fail 7 endeavours. Buying their Harmattan/MeeGo phone might send them a signal about customer preferences, though.

the following will be necessary for me to consider buying:

1) HW keyboard
2) qHD display
3) A modern processor (pref. dual core) and GPU with plenty of RAM
4) Screen size of at least 4"

Who cares about how many cores or a discrete GPU ? If it runs smooth and can drive a HDMI display without looking stupid, it's good.

1 and 2 would be a given for the N9 I guess.

As to giving Nokia money... yeah, I worry it'll end up funding MS crap, but otoh if I buy a nice Linux device from them and then never any MS stuff, that does indeed send a message.

plus official USB host mode support; otherwise, for my use case, it would be almost no difference than my current N900
