Finally I understand Nokia's strategy. Nokia is extremely determined that when it announces the WP7 phone it will be a huge break from its past. It wants the USA market to look at Nokia and see it as having had a clean sweep. But to increase the appearance of the paradigm shift Nokia is behaving really badly now. What could be worse than announcing its best product ever but then saying to the USA sorry you cannot have it and to everyone else no matter how popular the OS is we are never doing another phone using it? Here's what would be worse: give the phone the hardware potential to have the best features ... and then don't put them in! People will love Nokia more when they stop larking about the more they lark about now! Ha ha! Well, interesting marketing strategy. I hope it does not blow up in Nokia's face, you know, like everyone saying "Hmmm, new WP7 phone looks great but remember all that wacky stuff about the N9? Perhaps I will stick with Apple with their predictable marketing and product strategies."
Thank God for that as I was thinking of getting the N8 instead as the N9 lacked that and a 12 MP camera. But the FM transmitter would be enough to get an N9................................when it is released
agree with BOB. don't want Nokia any more, android phones and Apple are much better than Nokia. Nokia should leave Symbian to be successful in the market again
Isn't this old news?
These days, whenever i read an article about Nokia i always seem to end up shaking my head & wondering if they actually know what they're doing.
Anonymous, 15 Aug 2011i've never used radio and the fm transmitter is so annoying, very bad and weak emission signal... more...or maybe you dont know how to use it.
fm transmitter in not meant to be hd audio, its a radio signal after all.
but its hardly useless if used properly
Nokia N9 will be sold in US with android, no meego
Android >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Meego
it very slim,light weight and thin layer, woh very nice and first product.
i've never used radio and the fm transmitter is so annoying, very bad and weak emission signal. all the nokia i had (and i had all the high-ends) had an infernal noise on radio broadcast, no matter what car, no matter what brand it was practically impossible to use. SO USELESS FUNCTIONS BOTH !!!!!
umm , thanx anyway u make my complained to be another thread. but seem u forgot one. N9 did support bt 4.0 u see the source i gave. at the moment driver meego unavailable to access core number 3.0 and core number 4.0
ahah it s like the iphone4, they had special glass at 100$ piece, which is supposly to be very resistant, but when u drop it, you are good to fork 200$ to replace both side.
why they didnt do they back cover in plastic to save money?
nokia is coying apple.
AnonD-12379, 15 Aug 2011Release N9 in everywhere in the world , everyone (including me & you , i hope some aliens ... moreLoL Nokia will never cut the N9 price...maybe in 2 years...
And I assume Nokia has not plans to give full support to N8 either not to be sold in soo many countries aroun the World
As I said before, N9 is dead at birth.
Even te /sarcasm of GSMArena is funny.....
Whatever happens we'll at least get the FM radio, right?....yeah right!
So basicaly they raise the price by adding stuff onboard and no using it?!?! And makes it hard to 3rd party activate it...
same thing "hey! Heres a new ultra smart super smartphone, but u cant do nothing with it but make calls and write some sms messages, but otherwise it has so much power in it that u need to plug it to a powersoscet for life!"
or mayby this is an unibody style!? Huh the new nWP7 will use the same chipset?
So the technology on it is old when it arrives...typical.
Oh EISA gave the best smartphone mark to SGS2!
If this was android, it would have been the perfect phone...
ELOP want nokia n9 flop :( even nokia n9 is greate device like iphone 4 samsung galaxy sII .
Actually must SOC's used In the smart phones come with dedicated hardware controllers for fm transmission and reception. But as in most cases, the control ckt is there and the actual power ckt(antennas) is absent. Actually by the spec sheets, all samsung phones from omnia hd to galaxy s2 have had this controller. Same goes for iphone 4 and some moto phones. So n9 having this configuration is nothing new our surprising.
edward LT, 15 Aug 2011lol SE w980 have transmiter long time ago :)Not before the Nokia N78 :D
lol SE w980 have transmiter long time ago :)
