Orange Switzerland to unleash the Nokia N9 on September 15th - read the full textAs you may be aware, the N9 is the swan-song device that represents the end of the Nokia/MeeGo marriage. A fitting end but still a sad one to be sure. The N9 has received plenty of praise during its pre-release life from reviewers and industry types to boot. Even we have had the pleasure of...

I really hope that sales of the N9 skyrocket! The best phone to come out in years only to be killed off by the so called Nokia boss, clearly Elop is not looking to improve Nokia's fortune!and of course we all really know that his real bosses are back in the home old US! The N9 has the potential to change the face of smartphones in the world today! Lets make it a top seller! Im getting the black one! My wife the pink.and i will spread the word, I urge all who hate Iphone, Android and WP7 to do the same! Even if the press and networks dont push the N9 and slag it off, I have big feeling they are all going to be eating their words!

DO BUY THE N9!

There will be support, apps, services, EVERYTHING!

This phone is ALIVE! Nokia will support it, at all cost, there will be updates, don't be fooled(again) by fanboy lies...

Nokia is a comptent company that does care about their customers and they won't lie in commercials and directly to their customers to get you to buy their gold.

Now you've been warned, if you still are foolish enough not to go ahead and buy the N9 don't come crying here saying you've been cheated, remember, you got warned!

DO NOT BUY THE N9!

There will be no support, no apps, no services, NOTHING!

This phone is DEAD! Nokia will not support it, at all, there won't be updates, don't be fooled(again) by Nokia's lies...

Nokia is an incomptent lying company that does not care about their customers and they'll lie in commercials and directly to their customers to get you to buy their garbage.

Get an Android or the iPhone instead.


Now you've been warned, if you still are foolish enough to go ahead and buy the N9 don't come crying here saying you've been cheated, remember, you got warned!

I agree on this also.

Running Delvik is nothing.

Or else why aren't they showing Android apps running on the N9 or N950? That's right cause they need an extensive work to be adapted, that's why.

A test of Alien Dalvik(or what it's called) on N900 and a HTC with similar hardware showed same speed in the heavy photoshop app - so no problem in using Android apps with Meego.

Nokia has it's problems but the N9 has the potential to provide a good user experience and I like that it's not an Iphone or an android. And here in the USA our "unlimited" data plans are being capped or throttled. Nokia penta-band 3g phones provide me an easy way to switch sims for alternate data plans via alternate providers. So until a slick, active dual-sim, smart phone is released, I'm continuing to support Nokia and looking forward to this phone in a big way. Long live factory unlocked, no contract phones.

Second hand buyers will have a phone with the bugs fixed.
