Nokia N96 leaked photos give us a glimpse of next year's hot phone

These leaked photos are allegedly of the upcoming N96 from Nokia, the update to the highly popular N95 smartphone that was released here in the States earlier this year. The new phone is a dual slider, with a horizontal slide revealing a full keyboard while a vertical slide reveals the keypad.

In addition to the form factor (and the super-slick piano-black finish… wow), it's loaded up with a 5-megapixel camera with a flash made up of two bright LEDs. Not a lot is known about it otherwise, but it's sure to have speedy 3G access for Web browsing, a robust media player, and who knows what else. It's rumored to be announced in February, so keep your eyes peeled.
