I understand your reservations but this assumption isnt based on facts. Its my assumptions. The rest are all facts like qt, apps etc. You see, i watch market trends. I watch a learn strategies of other companies and methods used to turn around companies. Nokia have done just that. Restrategised, re-evaluated their position and set contingency plans to prevent a further landslide. Now those plans are in motion and about to be deployed with a fresh new product. It could go pear shaped from here on (could go either way for nokia - either a big positive impact on the market or an absolute disaster) but i doubt that. Just my hunch ;) Go ahead buy some nokia stock now ;)

Unfortunately, that wouldn't ... morewell....iphone's market is very limited....but nokia is a universal brand...!!!
It sells alot more than apple could ever dream off....jst not in the us market..!!!

The disease from which android is suffering....meego has been made to work on many systems.....but plzzz not by many manufacturers...!!!
Cocco Bill, 21 Jan 2011I got it wrong. There's 2 hours and 20 minutes left.Oh, if that makes you happy i can post garbage till 400 post.
Unfortunately, that wouldn't make a unsuccessful brand/phone successful if you think it would. You can be sure that the N9 won't even achieve 10% of iPhone sales.
I do have much reservations about Nokia being #1, if you may.
My cellphone history - nokia 6681 > sony k750 > nokia n70 > nokia 6630 > Nokia 5610 > nokia n95 > nokia n86 > samsung wave > htc desire hd. m gonna buy n9 too
Maemo was for Linux-geeks and not userfriendly at all, but I hope MeeGo will be userfriendly. It is a problem with an os depending inly on one company, or two with Intel, because Nokia can decide to suddenly abandon MeeGo as they abandoned Maemo.
The best would be if all devices, computers phones dvd-players cars..., all used the same open free os, so that all devices easily could comunicate with eachother and games and apps and... all could be made for the same os. MeeGo and Android should join into a new open os free for all to use...

Its such a common sight these days where a mobile phone user would claim that everyone but him doesn't know where a true phone value lies.

Nokia needs 1 core to run the os and the other to power my lightbulbs at home! This is a phone for gods sake. That is why there are gpu's. Others are going about things the wrong way. They wont even use all that power and even if they do then its bye bye battery power.
Megalord, 21 Jan 2011Okie, point taken. N8 rox, N9 sux. Simply because N9 has got a powerful CPU in it.N8 does not need high cpu for symbian bieng mch eficient os to what functionality it provides(same as android and mch better than ios)
but meego is a realy heavy os as it provides mch more functionality(full desktop linux apps)
so N9 will need higher cpu for providin more functionality rather than jst eye candy what android or ios does

Lets sit back and see how meego is adopted. The last time someone spoke about Nokia as a high end phone in my country was ages ago. Lets see if the N9 can change that.

Anonymous, 21 Jan 2011haha nice joke, what u think google will just throw away its apps to meego?Actually, the symbian ^3 qt apps would run on the n9 with ease. The n9 has a headstart with apps so whz would they want android apps? This os isnt to be still born and hence nokia has changed their strategy for their phones. The n8 and others can run qt and therefore its a developers dream. Now they create one app and it works for 2 different os's! What a pleasure. That is why nokia are tempting developers to qt. This qt framework is easy to use and create apps. Now that was clever by nokia. Dedicated linux apps would just be the killer blow that nokia would dish out once that takes off. N9 is destined for glory and has its place in the market pre-booked set for an assault on its competitors.

It's almost 400 already and there's still 23 minutes time left. :)
