Leaked Nokia N9 looks like MacBook Pro

Nokia's N9 smartphone rumoured to be running MeeGo OS

Images posted at Chinese site Tieba.baidu.com allegedly Nokia's latest N9 smartphone — and, Gizmodo notes, it looks like a slimmed down MacBook Pro!

Rumoured to be one of the first devices to run Nokia's new MeeGo operating system, the leaked photos of the N9 show it has a design very similar to an Apple MacBook Pro notebook. MeeGo is an open source, Linux project which brings together the Moblin project, headed up by Intel, and Maemo, by Nokia, into a single open source operating system that will be utilised on smartphones, notebooks and other communications devices. (Check out our review of the 1.0 netbook edition of MeeGo.)

The Nokia N9 appears to have an aluminium body and a glossy black bezel surrounding the screen. The N9 is a slider handset with a full QWERTY keyboard, so it should please those who want the combination of a touchscreen and physical keys.

Rumoured specifications include a 4in display and an 8-megapixel camera, but the details are pretty thin on the ground at the moment. Watch this space.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
