Nokia N9 pre-orders through the roof, 64GB batch all reserved  - read the full textNokia's Flagship Store in Helsinki, Finland has started taking pre-orders for the MeeGo-based Nokia N9. It’s been just three days, but all available pre-orders for the 64GB N9 version are already reserved. The N9 will be available in 16 and 64GB versions, so the 16GB unit is the only option...

I wasn't sure about it.. But i'm glad N9 is being accepted with open arms. As I've said before, Android is my current OS of choice because of (and I know its going to piss people off) its overall superiority in terms of technical depth. UI preference is completely subjective so people can have opinions about that. But there is no denying that it is clearly the most versatile and powerful OS around.. That being said, Meego/Harmattan is undeniably impressive. It's more versatile and more than likely, more powerful Android in its current state.. It's potential is immense.
I hope its starts a trend where people would generally become more aware of Meego/Harmattan and Meego in general. Because honestly, it really does have the potential to change our mobile tech landscape or at the very least, make it that much more interesting..
The truth is the truth... Its a really good OS..

Who in the right mind would purchase a device whose manufacturer has openly stated that it plans not to support ?? Unless your a phone collector, this item should be avoided at all costs. Get an iphone or an android, you can't go wrong with either.

Depends on country/region, it isn't everywhere.
Plus it's only early days, SGSII has been out for way longer in many places.

["and I think the quad-core Androids by the end of this year also will be less expensive than N9"]

There's no way it'll be cheaper, eventually it may, but not at initial launch.
Plus those next-gen SoC's won't be used to their full potential for "at least" 1yr.
Hell even the SII is still some way from being fully optimised…
Massive specs don't mean anything, if the drivers/software aren't fully optimised to exploit them.

N9 is better overall who cares... Do your research & you'll eventually not care.
I was pissed at first, but as I learnt about every fine detail, I didn't care any more.

You can buy several Cyan skins so it'll still look exactly like the Cyan 64GB.
The official skin is "very" good. That's what I'm going to do...
Sometimes I'll take the skin off, when I want a more formal look :)

Very similar SoC to N900...
Then there's still the possibility (not 100% confirmed yet) of Alien Dalvik.

Superficial specs don't tell the full story.

This is great! The N9 is well on track to beat the SGS 2 and iPhone in sales. The N9 is trully the Android killer. This news confirmed my suspicions that the people are now getting tired of Android and would like to try something new, more powerful, and much better over all. I now feel sorry for those who bought the SGS2 and othe Android flagships as the N9 is far more superior to what they have. They will be suffering from geek envy and wish they bought the N9 instead.

The N9 uses Harmattan MeeGo, it's entirely different to Vanilla MeeGo.
It's basically Maemo 6, but with binary/app compatibility w/Vanilla MeeGo.
The long term plan was for Nokia to eventually migrate to pure MeeGo.
But they never got close to that point, before the change in strategy was announced.

Nokia has already said "officially" several times now (despite the focus on WP after the N9)...
They will support the N9/Harmattan for "years to come with updates".
They haven't been specific about how agressive those updates will be, but nevertheless they'll be there.
Plus Harmattan can leverage Qt/Symbian/S40 continued development/support.

nokia is a finish company so it is expected that they will buy their own brand. if the reponse is the same in the international market then that would be awesome. but i doubt if Elop will change his mind coz he have already set up his mind on where nokia is going.

The hard-core fans (Symbian or not) would gladly have switched to MeeGo.
"If" Nokia had stayed on the path that was planned for MeeGo's replacement of Symbian.

It would be so ironic if the N9 and upcoming N950 outsells Windows Phones.

Nokia should cancel WP7 and produce more Nokia N9 and support MeeGo.
