Mark, 09 Nov 2011You do not understand. What intel & samsung do is irrelevant, because the N9 does not run ... moreYou are the one who doens't understand.
Window is the primary platform of Nokia, thanks to the new Nokia CEO who is a former Microsoft guy.
check out Nokia's os road-map
they gonna invest significantly less money on meego in the future. Don't you the simliarity that Nokia killed Symbian?
Now without Intel and linux, Meego will be only carried by Nokia alone. Again, it's just like symbian.
N8 users have a lot of faith in thier symbian, but at the end, Nokia kills its own baby.
N9 is a perfect example why Nokia loses in the competition. It is a sinking ship.
Eric, 09 Nov 2011Let's not forget that the €699 includes 22% Finnish VAT, so for those of you that aren't used ... moreiPhone 4S with the same storage is actually 120 Euro's more here in the Netherlands.

What intel & samsung do is irrelevant, because the N9 does not run MeeGo, even if it is called that. It is actually Maemo 6 Harmattan. And THAT development is going on. Which is also the reason there are still new Qt apps coming out. You just fail to understand what is going on, and Nokia wants to keep it that way, because Meltemi is going to be a surprise.
Let's not forget that the €699 includes 22% Finnish VAT, so for those of you that aren't used to retail prices that include sales tax, the price would be €573. I am pretty sure Apple excludes Finnish VAT when calling out its products' expected non-subsidized MSRPs.
Anonymous, 09 Nov 2011another nokia fanboy thinks meego is almost superior as ios *sigh*
besides there is a gulfe... moreNokia fanboy? Sorry but I'm not even a Nokia user..
and if it's still unclear to you that the ios is not the best. It is getting older and outdated. Sad thing for the apple fanboys like you.
Nikotiko, 09 Nov 2011About the same specs in the iphone. lol.another nokia fanboy thinks meego is almost superior as ios *sigh*
besides there is a gulfed gap between iphone4s and nokia n9 : dual-core lol

What??? Are you a troll or something? The design is super awesome and what about the specs when it runs soo smoothly?? Lol you shouldn't be here talking about mobile tech because you obviously don't know anything.
Let's check some facts
1. Nokia states WP is their primary platfrom. No more symbian(aborted by its mom lol).
2. Linux&Intel ditch Nokia. Linux says there is no more Meego. Already gone to Tizen which is developing with Vodafone, NTTDomoco and many other industry leaders.
3. N9 has medicore specs with not very attractive designs...but the price is definitely Iphone wanna be.
should i go on?
Nokia is dying now. N9 is the example of that lol
Of course it will be overpriced...
Because it's already a collector's item even on launch. Remember, no more MeeGo device after this. Nokia wants to make the most out of it. They (Nokia) even want your own blood to buy the N9.
So Fanboys...get one already. Hurry!
substandard 1450 mAh battery, old single core TI OMAP 3630 cpu, relatively small screen(3.9), only 720p@30fps, Unmatured OS which will be dead in near future, No sd card slot...
all of these for €699. Well done, Nokia lol

Read some of the earlier comments explaining why all your points are invalidated.

Plus this is the very 1st pre-order...
There'll be "many" more around the world in coming wks.
Tis premature to claim it's way more than the iP4S don't you think?
But I guess you already knew that in all honesty ;)
Anonymous, 09 Nov 2011meh 700E seems a bit over the top, lets wait till the dust settles around 500shop around.... might an idea... just a hint.
