Nokia N9 review: Once in a lifetime

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...

@anonymous - viability? In case meego doesn't get "Alien Dalvik" for android apps or meego just doesn't get apps period? Don't get me wrong, I hope it does get the Alien Dalvik kit because I really want something fresh.

today i had in my hands lumia800 and i have to say, it feels fantastic! N9 has the same body. still thinking to get this phone -N9. i own Galaxy2 which is great but ergonomics arent. easy to drop even in a 'mesh' case and iPhone like button deosn't feel right when operate the phone. i mean when your finger glides on the screen you need to press it sometimes relatively hard. i belive SWIPE on N9 gives much better expierience.
welli think Samsung should copy more N9 than iPhone ;)

I really like the idea of this phone and operating system! But the hardware seems really capable and was wondering whether it would be possible to flash it and put android on? Especially ice cream sandwhich?

but dont worry, i think the n9 can handle it ;)

atleast gsmarena shud have mentioned some bummers such as no alphanumeric keypad in messaging plus the biggest bummer is that the led flash cannot be used during video recording..i bought it... :(
now tell me its not a xenon its a dual led flash but i cant use it...whats the deal nokia
luckily enough ive found a led flashlight app that i run in the background then i open camera to shoot videos and it helps..otherwise the n9 videos rec is a letdown by not allowing the led light....
and sometimes the still camera doesnt focus on objects itself..not even when i touch to focus... :/ quite slow...
anybody got same issues????
