The Hindu reports that N9 would be based Windows Mobile Platform.. and here it says that till will be running MeeGo..
What is the actuall OS till will be running on????
wow!!! Nokia comeback? hehe...Linux..install android? that would make ios and android users (like me) go :O good job Nokia!!

It makes more sense for you to stick with the N8 does it not? N8 has better camera, just as large storage capacity, and web browsing shouldn't be too much of trouble since you can use Opera and you care not for flash?
Also Nokia has indeed said that this will be an experimental venture they will not be "supporting" this device in a true sense; their main focus would be more likely on WP7.
Copy or not its still good..Copy for good and better.. =)

i love this phone and surely it will be my next phone no matter how much it costs .it is the best ui i have ever seen (better than android dont tell me about the widgets because they are not needed any more.it has the best multitasking around .i dont care about the luck of apps (hope this will change in the future) as i only use the phone for hearing to music taking photos browsing the web(i do not want flash as i prefer watching the videos on my PC because it is easier and more pleasant to whats on a big screen) and playing games like angry birds and fruit ninja (if i want to play HD games i grub my psp as it has better controls) .As for the support from Nokia i believe they want let it as they did with the n900 which was intended for developers and not the consumer market .
AnonD-1393, 22 Jun 2011LOL. How about you do your homework?! "Swype" belongs to "Swype Inc.". Goo... moreYeah, my missunderstood of swipe and I apologize for it. But for the swipe thing already exist in android APps which I am using. is Go Launcher and can swipe what ever page or icon or Apps like Meego already. So that's nothing new for android to follow.Android phone can skin what ever the way user lime and the way it move around.
AnonD-1393, 22 Jun 2011Swipe, not swype, and while swiping isn't anything new, the way that N9's UI works is totally ... moreAlthough its not possible to "swipe" a running process(app) into standby mode on android; it can however be done by pressing the home button. This can be looked at two different ways:
1. It is a neat feature
2. It is a useless feature as it looks tedious in that you have to swipe from edge of screen to edge of screen, if your finger is not on edge then it would just act as a flipping gesture and change videos, songs, pictures, or scroll left to right/up to down on a webpage.
I also felt a little let down as the trend seems to be going towards qHD resolution. Plenty of motorola android devices already use FWVGA so this resolution is not astonishing; this is probably likely due to the fact that the N9 is running a lesser powerful PowerVR 530 GPU instead of the 540 found on the Galaxy S and the 545 that is newest, as any higher resolution would probably take a serious hit in performance.
I hardley wait to buy one for myself. Hurry up Nokia with the release in the stores
And Go MeeGo!
We love you all!
I hope this phone will be available ASAP and will have a sweet price tag! :D
rebel, 21 Jun 2011too late.it should come out in 2009and Android will be nothing...
It looks like a huge ipod nano,it has a single core two years old cpu, it surely will have a huge price,it makes linux distributions look ram hungry wich they surely aren‘t.You nokia fan boys have become worse than apple boys...
I'm definitely going back to Nokia after using SE, Sammy, LG and the latest I have right now is an HTC. Nokia has proven once again that indeed they are the true number 1 phonemaker in the world!
Tenzoki, 22 Jun 2011I am getting one for sure, N9 - the perfect smartphone!!!!yeah it will perfect if many developer support it :) hope intel can make other manufacture use MeeGo :)
