Nokia 909 Concept, MeeGo-Based with Two Full Touchscreens

Nokia might have decided to kill the MeeGo operating system and to remove it from its future plans, but enthusiasts are still attracted to the platform and continue on dreaming of what handsets it could have been loaded on.

Among them, there is the Nokia 909 concept phone coming from Moody Caplan (via MyNokiaBlog), a retrofitted Nokia N9 that sports two touchscreen displays instead of one. First of all, we should note that the new device would run under a more refined flavor of the MeeGo platform, while packing Swipe 2.0 on top, so as to provide users with a wider range of swipe features than before. Second, there are the aforementioned two screens that add more functionality to the device, allowing users to enjoy better multitasking features on it. Inside, the Nokia 909 concept phone would sport a 1.4GHz application processor, single-core, complemented by 1GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory.

Today’s smartphones might pack multi-core CPUs, but the designer of this handset believes that a single core would be enough to carry out tasks. The smartphone also features an 8-megapixel photo snapper on the back, placed just above the second screen and complemented by Scalado’s Creative studio and Camera extras. Having two touchscreens means that the device also packs two proximity sensors, along with 3-Axis Accelerometer and Gyroscope. The smartphone would also feature Hydrophobic & Oleophobic nano-coatings, making it resistant to water and oil spills, as well as fingerprint-resistive. Of course, there is also the updated Swipe (version 2.0), which has to provide support for both screens.

One thing that would have to be sorted out for such a concept to prove successful is the battery life. Powering two large touchscreens at the same time would certainly drain the battery fast, though this does not mean that there are no solutions to the issue.
