if only they continue on Meego... I would definitely buy this phone.. but i have to change my mind and head for the Nokia 800. but theres something bugging me.. why did they gave up on Meego. I mean the software looks really light and its really unique! i hope the CEO would rethink about this.
Anon, 15 Oct 2011I didn't expect anything less from the (android) fanboy reviewers here at gsm arena. Saying... moreYeah the last part of the review doesn't seem to jibe with the rest. They built it up so much only to put it down in the end. If this is a "Once in a Lifetime" smartphone then price shouldn't matter at all imo.
Contrary to the review the N9 Email app does support search.
Scroll to the top of the list of messages, then scroll over the top to pull down the search bar.
Please update the review to correct this error.
Jon (Swe), 15 Oct 2011How about batterylife?
Ok, videoplayback... but people want other numbers, as well.Heavy users=1 day
Moderate users= 1.5 to 2 days
So far, the best I've heard is 2.5 days, light user with push emails, FB, twitter
Now onwards if u buy a Nokia smartphone; u probably won't regret.
Nokia has learnt 4rm their past mistakes & their upcoming phones prove it. Nokia 603, 701, 500 etc. they r all affordable wid 1GHZ processor & plenty of 512MB RAM & reborn Symbian os.. the Belle.
I love Nokia bcoz it has innovation.
All smartphones r unique & gorgeous in design. like X7, E7, N8, N9.. all r unique.
unlike samsung & others.. their all smartphone more or less look same.
Galaxy s2, galaxy s, galaxy note.. , optimus2..
where z d innovation? they all copy gorgeous iphones.
only thing lacking in nokia was an os.. but now that is fulfilled in terms of windows & symbian belle!
well its another nokia. guess what another os. well the theory is there looks nice. but why did they not use windows mobile.
oh just another reason why i will keep my super dooper iphone 4.
MeeGo looks like a great OS. The build of this phone is exquisite as well and the phone operates without any lag whatsoever. From the looks of the video, it performs better than even my dual core LG G2x (which sometimes lags). I like Android a lot but I definitely think the MeeGo os is much more promising. I was thinking of getting the Galaxy S2, but the screen is just too big (here in the states) if I wanted to carry a tablet around, I would. I think the N9 is the perfect size and it pretty much covers everything I could want.
TC, 15 Oct 2011I was very intrested in N9, and even considerd the problems of cutting my standard sim into a ... moreCut sim also so hard, just buy a cheap prepaid, then ask the shop to cut it. They also have the plastic sim holder thingy.
FM radio app, developer is working on it, I think I saw the unofficial version. THe N900 also didnt come with fm radio app, but that didnt stop those interested to buy it. 720p, there's VLC player(ready to be downloaded).
Wow, you fingers must be big or sthing, so far I didnt accidently close an app, I have to purposely swipe it down, then only it close.
Anyway, since you sooooooo worried on all this issues, then dont buy, keep enjoying your S2, lol. You dont have to worry it competes with S2 or Iphone, they didnt make many units, the 64GB sold out
TC, 15 Oct 2011I was very intrested in N9, and even considerd the problems of cutting my standard sim into a ... moreIf you are an apple fanboy then,iphone don't have flash,fm radio,tabbed browsing like N9 and N9 have hardware for fm radio and fm transmitter.One more thing it has revolutionary nfc which iphone doesn't support.
In case if you are galaxy fan then,here is the reality check,
no text reflow in GS2
no swipe os like N9
no good design like n9
no virus free os like n9
crap battery life of Galaxy
no true multitasking like n9
what about nfc
Also if GSMarena says that even withour text reflow browsing is very pleasurable,then who will trust your fanboyism.afterall GSMarena never supported Nokia,but N9 compells themto write good things about a nokia phone.
The N9 uses the same A8 CPU, SGX530 GPU, and 3630 chipset as the Optimus Black but wants you to pay the same price as the Galaxy S2. This is why the N9 will fail.
Nobody ever said it's a bad phone. It's just not a good phone for its price range.
Wait 2 months, I predict the price will drop to Galaxy S level.
For all N9 fans.Great news.first update coming with tons of features and is coming very soon.
I have one, and it's amazing. Of course it have some missing features, some of them will come later, others never, but with open community applications will come later.
am still going for that N9 regardless..its going to be anoher uniqe device from nokia,just as my N900..so i am just going to wait for few weeks until the price drop and add it to my collection!!!
Am sure am not the only one who thought about doing just that!
TC, 15 Oct 2011I was very intrested in N9, and even considerd the problems of cutting my standard sim into a ... moreThis is obviously not the phone for you. However, some of us have the money and like the phone! The important thing is that it covers the basics out of the box. It has support from Nokia at least until 2015 and I suppose a better phone is available by that time. The choice of processor is in my opinion the most disappointing feature of the phone. Memory, storage, features out of the box and design are excellent. Of course if your main interest is playing games on the phone Meego is not the OS of choice.
etacena, 15 Oct 2011I want my push email in real time or at least 5 minutes interval. is there anyway? helpYou need to set up the e-mail account as an exchange server account.
eagle3, 15 Oct 2011That part everyone already knew long ago. You are not interested in it in the 1st place, just ... moreI was very intrested in N9, and even considerd the problems of cutting my standard sim into a micro-sim, but it is unfortunatly very much too expensive, if it cost 300 euro less then it would be more reasonable considering its actual specs, but no text-reflow in the browser is simply very bad making webbrowsing impossible for me. Why is it so hard to provide software for the fm-radio hardware on MeeGo, why does it need so much extra time that it needs a later, still only a rumor, update?
N9 could have been good, but there are simply too many things missing in the list of specs, and I hoped atleast any of all romurs about all the "fixes" that was promised would be true when N9 was finally released, but still no text-reflow or Flash 11 or FM-radio or document editor or good 720p video recording or ability use regular Android apps and not only those that have been "repacked" or... The N9 romors was great, but unfortunatly the released facts are from as good as the rumors were! 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 know die-hard Nokia-fans can not stand hearing anyone say anything bad about Nokia N9, but the sad truth is that N9 is far from as good as the rumors said it would be!
It's the smartphone of the year..!!
I don't understand why micro-sim is bad..,
and i don't understand why you want microSd slot when the phone offers you 64MB.. I think that 16MB is nice too..
Ok,the price is high but this don't make it bad phone..
Stop trolling N9 and Belle phones and go play with your 'i want battery'toys..
In the connectivity section, I didnt see the mentioning of the ablility to use external USB-memory.
It said so on Nokias page, haven checked if they updated it, and removed that... but I sure want to know if its possible.
They didnt say USB-on the go support, so either the hardware or the software does not support it fully, but external USB was mentioned.
