Paul Troy, 27 Jun 2011Screen Comparisons..nothing wrong with resolution..
http://mynokiablog.com/2011/06/27/gallery... moreI'm happy that somehow the screen superiority seems to have shifted from Samsung to Nokia. I hope they can keep this up.
Samsung is still keeping Super AMOLEDs to themselves I think, but at least Nokia can work to make just normal AMOLEDs pretty much better than SAMOLEDs :D

rmt, 27 Jun 2011no micro sd slot?????/////////////No, but I'm not sure what you need it for anyways?
I've never really used those. It's pretty much easier to just plug in the USB or use bluetooth. Hell, at this day and age with fast mobile connections, you might as well just upload the stuff online from your cellphone :D
While the lack of it is one option less, on the bright side it means for more sturdy build with less things that can break. Making it internal also conserves a lot of space for other hardware. Much like the unremovable (by "normal" means) battery.
The Nokia N9 is a very promising device. It has the good form factor and a great operating system. MeeGo is very flexible. This is what Nokia needs. It needs something that can be a real competitor to iOS, Android and WP7. Unfortunately, I guess it will be just a test product. Stephen Elop doesn't want to pursue the MeeGo project anymore.
I'm not really sure why Mr. Elop is making incorrect decisions for the company. Microsoft's WP7 is a good operating system too. However, the support for this platform is not really good as well as the popularity. Nokia should have maintained 3 platforms to compete with different classes of products.
I hope that Nokia's Board of Directors will make a good move to prolong their existence in the competition. That is to fire Mr. Stephen Elop.
Its an Amaizing , MindBlowing and ALso Smart Phne...I Like The Nokia N9 ...

That's something many iPhone and Samsung fanboys forgot when N8 was new as well. "Hurr durr no 1ghz CPU!", doesn't need one when S^3 is way lighter than either iOS or Android, not to mention it had GPU taking half of the strain, while the two other barbaric platforms were mainly pushing everything on the CPU :D
The N8 has the best antenna I've ever used in any device. Except for our http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VIRVE system, but those have an external antenna, so it doesn't count. Not to mention, that system is created by Nokia too :D
Mr. Elop, you did a mistake by choosing WP7, Meego and Android and also Symbian Anna/Belle should have been your bet. Sorry its too late...

I would bet they imaging will be better than Android or iPhone, but not as good as N8/N9. In my mind the N9 is all about quality, not just specs.

He guys look, the best Camera after N8, according to Damian Dinning himself:
Industry-first imaging sensor which is FULLY optimised for BOTH 16:9 AND 4:3 images
Industry-leading Carl Zeiss optics
Super wide-angle optics – the widest in the industry. Up to as much as 60% more viewing area than other broadly comparable devices
f/2.2 aperture – largest ever in a mobile device
Extremely responsive, especially switching from stills to video and vice-versa and shot to shot
Touch AF for both video and stills
Full time continuous AF in BOTH video and stills plus face detection
HD video with stereo audio (still one of very few devices that provide high quality audio recording in video)
Seamless workflows optimised for speed or editing & sharing
Zoom in to images directly in the post capture view, edit and share all without leaving the camera – the most seamless mobile imaging experience
Non-destructive editing of images – go back to the original image at any time. Undo or redo edits even months later
New high power dual LED flash – 20% more powerful than our previous most powerful LED flash despite its compact size
Geo tagging with place names rather than just co-ordinates
AMBR – Automatic Motion Blur Reduction
Not forgetting the touch to share of images between handsets using NFC technology
[deleted post]You are right, the iPhone has a beautiful 3,9 inch curved glass CBD Amoled display. Oh wait, it doesnt.
It has a hugely intuitive and fast buttonless UI. Oh wait, it doesn't
It has deep integration of Facebook and Twitter, Youtube, Vimeo, Flickr, in the entire OS not just app silo's... Oh wait, it doesnt.
It is made of sturdy unibody polycarbonate. No color loss, no breaking. Oh wait, iPhone is made of glass.
You can make phone calls with it... Oh wait.
N9 is what the iPhone should have been. There already are apps for the N9, they are Qt apps I already have on my C7.
with just its looks and pinch previews, i think it really holds more shockers for the nokia fans out there like me… there are two things i really hope.
first, i hope that this device holds more awesomeness, especially with the “speed”, which is the only one thing flawing the n8.. the last thing is that i hope nokia would continue working on for meego to its optimum performance and capability.. NOKIA, instead of walking on flames with microsoft for attention, why not just polish your classic shoes for attractions… pleasse. more POWER!!!!
[deleted post]You are not getting this at all. It has a UI that frees you from the dumb "push a bottun to return to my app grid" paradigm. THIS is the next thing. Even Engadget agrees, the N9 is what the iPhone should have been.
