We never did quite get the name of Nokia's prototype slider
-- it certainly isn't the C7
, and it's apparently not the N9
-- but regardless of what you call our dearly departed, its journey is over.
In what will no doubt be a fairly familiar tale to readers everywhere, TechnoBuffalo
saw the phone remotely wiped right before their eyes, and Negri Electronics
(our original source
) says they've got private investigators breathing down their necks for the device. Stalwart to the bitter end, RM-626 gave one last performance before it dropped. See the 4-inch handset play an embedded YouTube video after the break if you must, but be sure to stop at the 5:45 mark. For true phone lovers, the rest is too painful to watch.
