Go to talk.maemo.org forum, & search for the latest posts made by the user 'jolo'
I don't care personally for a range of reasons, but it's still "on the cards".
abhi, 18 Aug 2011so what?? special is about n9. even that functin is available in nokia n8!!!! do some reading @meego.com and maemo.org & you'll learn what's so special.
Dominator, 18 Aug 2011Google for Motorola Dinara (Croatia) it will outshine already old N9Doubtful....
The only thing that probably does is the SGSII & some of it's variants.
But only after a 3rd party Android ROM has been added.
Still prefer the N9 overall though.
Dubz, 18 Aug 2011I hate reading about this thing now because the more I hear about the less an less it makes se... moreum...
Tonnes of different phone brands have countless hardware features that are never utilized.
It's very common....
GrainySnapshot, 18 Aug 2011Oh really? My N86 had fantastic sound quality using the FM transmitter in the car. Plus, I co... moreIt's hardly a regression compared to the n900
There's countless areas it's better in...
FM RX/RDS is definite, TX is not, this story was wrong.
There def. won't be TX, the antenna simply isn't there.
But RX was confirmed as do-able via software.
xman, 18 Aug 2011hard to care, when I it's not being produced in large enough numbers to be distributed to all... moreWhat do you mean...
There's at least 28 countries so far, for which availability's been confirmed.
Either via retail, carrier, or both.
Does US/UK constitute the world?
It's already been confirmed for retailers in France/Spain.
me, 18 Aug 2011nobody cares about the n9... It is a DOA phone...far to common misconception.
Don't worry about the money. The FM transmitter likely comes at no extra cost because it's part of the connectivity chip that also does Wifi and Bluetooth. For those who worry, Nokia actually saved money by not designing and implementing _another_ antenna in the N9 ;)
Nokia is only trying if it can take the smart phone market, but i dont think changing the Os is the best bet, why not ungrade the processors speed od symbian that we all know a(( know and like, well i wish them good luck
The FM transmitter is placed in a Combo chip along with the bluetooth module since the days of N85 . The version of the custom - made chip changes every now and then , the combination remains the same .
"…and Nokia isn't exactly in a position where it can throw money down the drain".
Here's a murder story about a phone manufacturer who invested loads of time and effort to come up with a shiny new operating system and mobile phone. Then they… ok, the CEO did it.
It's really a shame Nokia has gone from innovator to doin the same thing as everyone else. Symbian was the first true smartphone platform, I still remember being blown away the fisrt time I used an S60 device. What happened to that Nokia! Please, come back. Meego is oozing with potential (love my N900 to this day).
