Why would they limit the distribution of the N9. Eff Elop and his damn WP7! Nokia went down last time because they would give the customers the improvements they wanted now once again they going down for not listening to their die hard fans! If Nokia goes all WP7 then goodbye and good riddance to Nokia for me! been a very long support of yours and loved symbian minus its shortfalls but seriously they just needed to fix that and everything wud have been fine
i will try my best to get the N9 from oversea online or ebay in canada, but 1 thing i'm so sure is that i will not even take a look at windowphone from nokia, hate the ui.
yall should check out a post on mynokiablog.com there isa post of somebody emailing elop and speaking about meego....my be a hoax but its worth a read:
I have a few questions.
First, i have no definitive answer on whether or not the second button on the side (beneath volume) is the Power/Screen Lock button. Can you confirm this?
Secondly, I have heard Australia will be the first market to launch the device, is this true?
Thirdly, Can you confirm whether or not Meego – Harmattan (or the N9 itself) will continue to get support in the coming years?
Finally, Why kill off MeeGo when it has the potential to be better then WP and iOS? Is it due to past loyalties?
Thank you for your time,
Thanks for your note. The second button on the side is indeed the power/screen lock button. We are not confirming the sequencing of markets, as they each have unique requirements that must be considered and it is hard to predict the precise order as we go through various national certification programs. The N9 will be supported by Nokia in the years to come to ensure customers are well served. And finally, elements of the N9 will live on in the future, although we are deliberately not sharing all details, although we have noted that elements of industrial design, user interface and the development environment are of particular interest. In our strategic assessment, we determined that the MeeGo effort could not quickly enough deliver us a range of solutions across price points, radio technologies, etc. for us to effectively compete, so we had to make an alternative decision.
From where I came from, the N9 has been labelled as "coming soon" about 4 weeks ago from the Nokia retailers' website. Can't wait to see how it'll perform IRL though.
joonius, 01 Aug 2011Interested to see how this one will turn out to be.It is, but I'm gonna go with Elop's plans on this device. XD
