Nokia ‘Batman’ Device Revealed

Recall that when the film the Dark Knight opened I posted this:

The first was a very iPhone-like Nokia device that appears in the movie (prominently branded Nokia). The interesting thing is that the phone doesn’t actually exist. It appears almost identical to the iPhone but with Nokia branding. Nokia is reportedly developing the “Tube,” an iPhone like touch-screen device that will be out at some point next year. Accordingly, Nokia seems to be trying to create an association or impression (unconsciously) in the consumer mind that is unjustified at this point by its current phones.

Not exactly what I saw in the film but the N97 showed up today:

I discuss the device over at Local Mobile Search (it beats the iPhone in several significant ways). There’s also more discussion at Techmeme.
