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...

MeeGo has a good chance of living pretty well. WP7 is just the cash cow. Symbian^3 and MeeGo the Pets. Like Robert Rodrigez, you've got to make the kids movies that SELL SELL SELL, so you can afford to make the real ones. WP7 is Spy Kids, MeeGo is Machete.

Will be buying a Magenta N9 from Orange on Sept 15 and importing it to the US. Also Buying a Micro SD card from my Tmobile store and slapping that baby in.

it may look good, design wise, but htc, samsung and iphone have better design and have better support for their OS unlike nokia which publicly is telling everyone that symbian and meego will not be supported in the long run. why bother buying a nokia phone right now when the people at nokia like elop no longer trust their own OS?

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!

Guys, don't waste too much time about support for coming years. There will surely be at least a few bugfixes, which ensure the awesone usage, at least until you buy the next generation.

I needed something better to handle business & pleasure and the S2 is a rocket!!!

Much as I was attracted to the N9, the support you need after dishing out such large sums is hard and software. I travel plenty, so buying a product that has peace of mind globally is necessary. Nokia seemed to have offered this item in selected markets only. Sigh.....a last breath of ingenuity before, eventually, MS gives them life-support. Sorry, but W7 or whatever is rubbish and a resource hungry monster that is doomed. Personally I hate it as much as W6! W7 sales projections for this year have been massively (and intentionally) misstated.

Android and iOS are the only guys at the party. Samsung and Apple are the guys popping the Champagne.....and for good reason!

I live in Switzerland and thin about buying an N9. I'm just a little bit worried about the future support.

n9 may be the last of its kind
but to be honest, what more do you need from a mobile
maybe a bigger screen and thats it

I am in the UK, and I fully intend to lay my hands on an N9.

Even with Mango, WP7 is just not going to cut the mustard on a Nokia handset - it will feel ham-strung in comparison to the versatility of Symbian
