These pics look pretty legit to me, but really it's too soon to tell. Certainly looks like there is NO touchscreen on this device.
The bezel around the outside is reported to be aluminum. Two big thumbs up for that. One of the big things I was dissapointed with on my 8800 was the plastic bezel around the outside (I went out and got a case immediately for it).
This device also appears to have an external microSD slot. Woohoo!
For some reason this doesn't really fit the form, design or 'wow' factor I invisioned the 9000 to have. So take these pics with a grain of salt.
What do you think? Is this the 9000?
