This was a phone known internally at Nokia as N9-00 - this is not the same as the N9 that now sells, which had an internal name of N9-01. This N9-00 was supposed to the shown to the public at the Nokia event this time last year - and sold in Q1. The new Nokia CEO Stephen Elop cancelled the phone's launch as one of his first acts - the Nokia MeeGo project manager resigned in protest. Then a few months later Elop killed the phone totally at the start of this year, just days before the new Microsoft alliance was announced - and the new MeeGo project manager resigned in protest. Since the N9 and MeeGo were finally seen, many have felt Elop had killed a very potent phone, a possible 'iPhone-killer' that definitely would have generated significant profits to a Nokia that now sorely needs every penny; and obviously had Nokia had a MeeGo phone to sell in Q1, then that phone would have been immune to any Nokia reseller boycott hitting Symbian based phones, even after the 'Elop Effect' destroyed Nokia Symbian smartphone sales after February. The first MeeGo phone was ready to manufacture and sell in Q1, but was simply cancelled by the CEO, so we will never know how viable it might have been but judging by how strongly Nokia profits jumped in Q4 with the far less spectacular N8 running the Symbian S^3 (far less amazing than MeeGo) and how much the industry fell in love with the N9, that phone would definitely have sold at least in 'meaningful' numbers. Strange are the ways of the minds of the visionary CEOs haha..
[deleted post]Sufi, Is that why you are trolling here? ha ha... enjoy your android man, and let us enjoy meego and symbian, u dont have to teach us what to use and what not to..
[deleted post]To be honest I agree with you that the gab between symbian and android now is very big But If nokia will continue with Meego and I know that is impossible... in this case the android CEO itself will have a nokia Device runing Meego and he will log in with us in this page and believe me N9 really comes(ONCE IN A LIFE TIME)...Think again

guys when do you say about any phone this awesome phone you said this about its specifications like (ram-cpu-3g-camera)or about its apps -widgets -themes-and the soft-i think if you say about the specifications this only on paper but your usage to the phone what make it awesome not only the specifications - to persuade u try to compare any phone dual core and a mobile single core u find there is no big differences in the speed and sometimes u buy a mobile dual core but when u use it its speed cannt show it so my advice is to use a mobile has all specifications you need even it single core
I have had many many phones. N9 is simply the best so far! Thanks to Nokia to make finally something functional....
It should support it. If it can't, just convert your videos to MP4.
Be different. Choose & experience Nokia N9. The only Meego smartphone to date.
why wmv format videos aren't supported by this device......??? Plzz send any clues..
jn043, 28 Jan 2012N9 has a secondary camera that does not make video calls. in fact, does not do anything. wtf !?!Actually it does has use but iy's not built in at the moment. You can download simple mirror or MeeCamhor, the latter is better because it saved your pictures to the gallery. So there you go, front facing camera in action. As for video calls, not yet possible. Wait for PR1.2 for that one.
