Nokia 'Saga' accidentally outed in AccuWeather ad? (update: nope, it's just the N97 Mini)

We're not quite sure what to make of this, but it appears that the AccuWeather app for S60 5th Edition devices has gone ahead and leaked an unknown Nokia device -- the "Saga" -- which appears to be a sort of N97 Mini Mini (two "Minis" on purpose there) that trades the tilting screen for a more traditional flat sliding one. As Symbian-Guru points out, Nokia itself doesn't typically assign names to its handsets -- it leaves that job to its carrier partners -- so this might simply be a branded version of one of the existing N97 variants, but naturally, the leaked device theory is juicier. At any rate, if this were to come Stateside, they might have a bit of trouble slipping it by Samsung since they've already got a Saga in the mix here, so we'll be keeping an eye out for some blander N, E, or X series label if this gets real.

Update: David Fields of the Nokia Messaging team is saying over on Symbian-Guru that it's simply an N97 Mini -- but that still doesn't explain where the Saga name comes into play. The mystery continues!

Update 2: Another Nokia spokesperson has contacted us to let us know that "Saga" was Nokia's internal codename for the N97 Mini... so yeah, no new hardware here.
