Nokia N9 can play role of hotspot acces point. N9 has receive/transciver FM so can play FM radios and can communicate with eg car audio via FM to play music. N9 has built in compass so all navigations are autoamaticaly coordinated with retation to position to Noth South ast West etc.

Sony ericsson phones are also good. I like the arc, ray & neo. Each of their phones has unique design. Performance is very good but they need to compete with other android phones out there. Perhaps they failed in terms of popularity...By the way, nokia has many fans but it doesn't mean its on the top because of polpularity. I think nokia has its own way of making smartphones not just competing with specs. I think they consider user-friendliness, usability, power economy, type of consumers, and durability. that's why you could see more old nokia phones than any other brands which people are using in their everyday activities, at least here in Asia & Africa.

Surely if the Sony was so good it would be doing very well in the Gsm-Areana Rankings
If you have a look the N9 & N8 are with in the top 3
+ look how many hits these two N Series phones
Dont take our word go with the masses
Why did my post go up 3 times can someone delete a couple of them
we are talking about the N9 here not N8. I know neo is a good phone: nice build, good to hold in your hand & with excellent screen quality. But please we are talking about meego here not symbian. Go to symbian pages instead. I think you simply have a grudge against nokia. I don't like most of nokia phones either but at least I like the N9.

SONY is far better in terms of performance brother. Android has got lots of apps which you don't find them on Nokia.
Android phones have got wifi hotspot option and it's absent in Nokia phones.
Android apps are updated quite often to give better performance and new features.
I love voip apps like fring, Skype, viber a lot on Android than Symbian.
Symbian is almost dead os now.
I agree that camera is good in N8 but will you buy phone for just because of good camera? Answer is NO. If you spend 100+ usd or 6k Indian rupee you will get 14mp camera from canon which is better than N8. Neo is going to get Ice cream sandwich update by March end which is amazing.
One more thing Sony is better brand than Nokia. Sony rocks guys.update your knowledge on phone os.
AnonD-31621, 26 Feb 2012i'm so pissed off with my n9. Since i'm using a pre-unlocked unit, i just have to use wi-fi to... moreI had the same problem of multi sign in. I solved it by reinstalling the firmware using Nokia software update.
Cyan, because other girls would choose magenta..lol....but seriously, cyan is cool & hippy for a girl...if you want to be different...
if you were an 11 year old girl,what color of n9 would you choose?
Anonymous, 24 Feb 2012no radiooooo ...! suck !dude n9 support FM function
my thoughts about the N9.
hardware as compared to other brands: unique, simple, elegant & durable. Does any phone have these specs (except lumia 800): 2.5 D curve gorilla glass, polycarbonate unibody & 8 MP carl zeiss - tessar optics (except N86) & dual led flash (as compared to some recent phones except for HTC). It's not cheap right. correct me if Im wrong. peace.
software: the only meego-harmattan phone, could do almost anything with 1 Ghz processor, though some apps are lacking, but these could be made soon. For me, the interface is so organized & practical. Take note that the OS is still young but it develops further through the support of N9/N950 developers & community. N950's purpose is to enhance more the capability & usability of the OS. it really does its job, look at the upcoming updates.
1 ghz processor: this doesn't matter because of the OS. you will think its slow. no..other phones have dual cores or more because its a requirement to
run their OS to the point of usability not necessarily to speed it up. though i admit higher core specs makes other OS speedy than the N9. But its very power hungry, which means a phone needs a higher battery capacity (like razr max) or a spare one & sometimes it may heat up. Draining the battery for an extra speed is not practical. Let's be responsible in conserving energy. just my opinion. comments of all types are welcome. thanx.
