Nokia N9 review: Once in a lifetime - read the full textWhen the first touch-only OS debuts on one of the hottest pieces of hardware this year, you can bet we want a piece of the action. Windows Phone is where Nokia want your attention, but it might turn out that MeeGo is the place you want to be. Not shown much love by its own maker...

Simply it generates sagnificantly more revenue then all Lumias and outeslls Lumias in units 4 to 1, 4 N9 on 1 Lumia, but counting all Lumia models combined together. The more important is that MeeGo Harmattan is developed and maintained by community. This makes number of software is increasing both free and commercial, paid. This means bussines opportunity, and managment sooner or later will have to answer shareholders questions like "wh you don't make money on MeeGo, Nokia N9 and software around when there is visible demand and market?" And answer can have personal consequences. So money and consequences talks for MeeGo and Nokia N9 - they are back in bussines, Nokia bussines.

Have had the N9 for two months and updated to latest software recently. There is still some lag in the interface suggesting a lot of room for optimization. I don't miss document editing capabilities as much as I thought I would. The facebook app is behind that of iOS but the html5 version is as good except for the lag. I am happy with my purchase, especially since it cost me no more than 2990 Swedish Kronor (ca 420 us dollars or 350 Euros) for the 16GB version. Unfortunately since Nokia has given up on MeeGo, I will go back to iOS after this.

Best phone ever released by Nokia. MeeGo does a good job! I recommend it to everybody.

But honestly, how many people edit documents on a 4 inch screen? I would definitaly use a proper Mac for that. I got the N9 and am very happy with it. But for document editing, go with the E7.

It has FM radio but nokia didn't active it. The hackers and developers made to apps for FM radio.

I am surprosed why Nokia didn't give effort for marketing of this Beauty? If Nokia gave 25% effort of Lumnia or N97 (one of the worst ph) or N95 (Another great one) this could be the leader of 2012.
