News of the N9 keeps escaping from Nokia's labs, whether intentionally or not. A Chinese website managed to strip an N9 down and found that it runs on Qualcomm's Snapdragon QSD8250.
The CEO of Qualcomm said earlier this year that Nokia and Qualcomm have partnered for a device to come out this year but he said the device would run on Symbian. The N9 however, runs on Meego. This means there could be a change of plans somewhere and Nokia and Qualcomm are pairing up for more devices together.
