Guys... there is a Bad news !!
After webOS got on the backburner, now MeeGo is receiving a fatal blow with Intel freezing its development efforts citing lack of partner interest. When Nokia announced it will go the Windows Phone way, Intel vouched to keep MeeGo thriving on its own, but the market obviously had other intentions.
Intel will focus on what it does best, instead, and its mobile hardware platforms are likely to appear in Android and Windows Phone device flavors, rather than MeeGo.

love u Nokia...
I'm currently testing a pre-release version and, trust me or not, it's a damn good experience.
Once I got used to the "swipe-only" paradigm, I started having... fun using the device. Yes, wow, not only practical aspects are covered.
If you were used to the N8, just forget about your bad experiences: nothing in common in terms of look-and-feel, response times, ergonomics. The N9 is just simple to use, with quite all what you need easily reachable.
The web browser is really excellent, making me read the plain old websites I'm used to visit from my PCs.
As of today:
- taking a picture requires to tap on the screen.
- terminating an application by swiping-down is not enabled by default. One needs to enable this from settings.
The device will pop out in a limited number of countries, which means that at least US, UK and Germany residents will have to buy it through web merchants.

2000Mah thing, yeah, that would make it thicker.
In the end, it's up to individual usage & preferance. That's why there so many models for us to choose from.
It's just certain Android fans(as you know) like to critise for the sake of critising.
Polycarbonate is one of the material used in the making of bullet proof glass for its high impact resistance, N9 is the only one having it, the rest are using plastic.

Anonymous, 01 Sep 2011Have you actually had your hands on the N9 and tried it out, to make such a far fetched statement?specification comparison is enough for determining it :D
gsm arena says everything :D
panky, 01 Sep 2011use galaxy s2 then you will find n9 is no where in comparision of it- Battery life issues in s2, which you yourself admited is so is another post.
- durability issues. n9 is polycarbonate yes, still strong. Samsung's plastic, , flimsy.Come back 3 yrs time if ur s2 still in good condition
- heatings issues as reported in numerous forums. Heating issues in tropical country, hmmm, rather scary.
- there's a 4th reason,reserve that for next time.
you dont have to be 'concerned' abt N9 specs, you are not buying it anyway.
