Nokia’s Short Android Moment Revealed, Still the N9

We know that Nokia has had its (short) Android moment when it considered Google’s platform instead of Microsoft’s Windows Phone and the image above seems to prove that. It also proves that the Nokia N9, or at least prototypes leading to the N9 is a universal smartphone that served as a Nokia lab rat.

What we see here is the same Nokia N9-like smartphone — that turned out to be the SeaRay, or at least one of its variants — running Android. The device displays your typical Android home screen, though with a higher resolution (or dpi setting). You’ve got the status bar, search widget, shortcuts and the first boot notifications.

This might as well be a screenshot displayed on the screen but, as Engadget notes, it would have been easier to display a plain WVGA screenshot on the screen instead of a higher resolution (dpi setting) screen grab. So there you go: at least you know how it would have been like if Nokia would have turned the other way at the crossroad.
