beckon, 15 Oct 2011So as the N900...but where is it now?The N900? Still running strong with a large community dedicated to support it. They are already running Meego on it.
In terms of apps, remember this is a linux-based phone. It won't be belong before 100 000s of linux (Debian etc.) apps are available. Also Delvik will port all android apps (also linux based) to Meego. Apps won't be a problem.
Truely nokia n9 is masterpiece of art.. It's UI stunning yet simple. It's nokia's answer to touchscreen smartphone world,
The email application has search functionality. Just drag the list of emails down and the magic starts ;)
How come there's no mention of the Dolby Sound enhancement for headphones???
knm, 15 Oct 2011For all N9 fans.Great news.first update coming with tons of features and is coming very soon. ... moreIts all okay mate but I wish they would work on more apps for N9... For me the only thing that keeps me from buying this is the lack of apps which is a big downer for me... Dont get me wrong though as I feel Meego is a brilliant OS and it could really have been among the top OSs if only Nokia had not foolishly abandoned it... I dont think Meego would really get much apps in the future but I would be happy if I am proved wrong about that...
It's like a princess who never gets to go to the ball, who...despite being beautiful, is denied any life.
I felt sad reading that review, it's such a shame, and maddening that Elop scored ANOTHER own goal. Nokia has become Microsofts bitch, and might as well sell up now and get it over with.
You can imagine the R&D team telling ELOP "but we've spent millions on developing this OS for x years, and we've got this amazing new design for the handset that will run it!" with Elop saying:
"No, my bosses aren't interested, we'll just use this device for the hardcore symbian geeks to move over to, before we shut you and Symbian down. That new design looks interesting though, I'll take that for Windows thanks"
As a previous owner of the amazing N900, I was very much looking forward to this next iteration of Maemo. When it was on the cards, under the new Meego canopy, I thought, can't wait. Then February 11th 2011 happened and when Elop announced the new partnership with Microsoft I lost all interest in the N9. It is a beautiful device, and Meego looks like a masterpiece. But I can't part with $750 for a phone that is essentially still-born, no matter how pretty. I need support. As we all know, support from Nokia is erratic at the best of times; support for the N9 will be enthusiastic and then zero, very quickly. I feel that my $ will be better spent in 6 months time on a Nokia Windows phone, as I'm certain with two titans of tech working together rather than alone, the OS will actually get proper, continued support.
WTF...they created a stunner,why the hell they are killing it..........
i thinkk app is for fancy only.. i look for web browsing, good talk time, mail, connectivity etc apps should be productive no point having 1 mil+ java/shortcut type apps hehe
The MeeGo experience is ahead of every other mobile OS at the moment. I really hope Nokia aggressively drives this experience to WP8 and Meltemi.
Otherwise we may end up calling Swipe an elegant gesture from a more civilized time ;)
3500 more improvements coming to Nokia N9 on coming update says Kontorri from Meego Nokia team. so why not buy it already. http://mynokiablog.com/2011/10...-old-to-use/
this is a good phone but if you look at the price iphone 4 and 4s look like waayyyy better options.......nokia needs a way lot improvement ..........
ps : i'm no apple fan(hater actually)
after i saw great reviews and i saw a lot of nokia n9 videos i can say it is great beautifull os , now android os looking like beta :-) huh sorry google
TC, 15 Oct 2011I was very intrested in N9, and even considerd the problems of cutting my standard sim into a ... moreNokia staff has confirmed that they are working on enabeling the FM transmitter and there is already an app that allows you to use it.
Flash 11 isn't up to Nokia but Adobe.
"And even the swiping gesture to move to the homescreen have all the potential problems i did fear it would have where browsing in the gallery or playing a game this swiping gesture unintentionally can move you to the homescreen!"
I havn't had any problems with that at all in fact most games I have tried disable Swipe when you are playing.
