If you thought that the N97 was hot, wait till you see this Nokia piece of gadgetry! Turns out that during Nokia Capital Markets Day, an event that took place in Brooklyn, a slide showing the following Nokia touchscreen smartphone was leaked. Is this the N98?

It certainly looks great, but the UI is really not specific to the Finns, so we might be dealing with a hoax. Why quit using S60 when you have just acquired Symbian? Also, this interface does remind me a bit of that used on HTC devices, but all in all, everything points to a fake. What do you think?

    There are quite a number of websites saying that Nokia have launched the N98…..but none of the worldwide Nokia sites have even made any reference to it…..there are Chinese mobile vending websites that claim that they can ship them for as little as €250…..the imagery going around seems to be a setup using Photoshop…..some blogs list someone as saying that he bought it…however he has yet to receive it……I believe that it is a hoax….but hope to be proved wrong.
