Great phone build quality and very charming os unlike android. I also like the features ios does not have like mass storage, dolby sound, great reception and 3G not cutting in every corner of the street...in brief what a great phone from a great manufacturer...

I challenge anyone to use the N9+MeeGo for a week, and then use any other phone and not try to close an app swiping it. N9+MeeGo = AWESOME!!!
Agreed there are not many apps out there, but there are enough and more to love this phone!

Yeah I might get it for the apps that android has.. but i'd still stick with meego.. all i want is a simple phone, wherein you can send SMS, make phone calls and connect with my twitter and facebook account. Watching videos online other fancy stuff is just a plus. I really don't need em since I always bring my tablet.

Hope I can get it soon. Then I can Fiiiiiinaaaally have a decently stable version of android. I bet you're relieved that your phone doesn't restart so much any more, huh?

This is a joke right? If there's one reason a person would buy this thing is for the Meego Os or if it doesn't want the Android.

What's next an IoS port on this?

N9 is zippy because Meego consumes alot less resources than Android.

Wow, Nokia is d best second to none. A phone with 3 OS's. Don't go there. Its like a really life computer. D next thing remaining is d standard USB port which could be added in a Upgraded design. N9 is not just a phone but a ....

The only thing that the N9 users will probably use this Android ICS boot for is for the apps which is what is lacking on Meego. But other than that it's pointless to use Android on the N9 since the reason its users bought this phone for is the elegance, simplicity and uniqueness of the Meego-Harmattan OS and the Swipe UI. They could have bought an Android device instead if they really want Android.
