I bought my Nokia N9 three weeks ago, notwithstanding all kinds of snide and sarcastic remarks and reviews. It turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life. People say: "Nokia N9 ? Poor applications, dead operation system, blah, blah..."
All this evaporates once you begin playing with the toy. It is the simplest, sexiest and most user friendly phone. Period...
All my friends have iPhones and Samsung Galaxy S IIs. They paid a fortune to buy them. Nonsense !
I am not interested in billions of "fart-apps" or silly games !
What I need is a ligtning fast, stable, reliable, sturdy, user-friendly smartphone with all the high quality applications and social networks built in.
Moreover, Nokia N9 has a lovely "swipe" action. No other smartphone has it.
It is a pure joy to use this phone. You can easily customise it too.
All in all, I'm a satisfied customer and I wholeheartedly recommend it.
Don't be distracted by what others say. Follow your heart :)
You won't regret it at all...

Android app emulation is certainly possible (they hinted at Alien Dalvik, don't know what came of that though). Finally, Nokia are mainly dropping the Ovi brand now - if you meant the Nokia Store, the number of Qt apps on there is expanding but full support is unlikely.
TO any one who might now the answer ,
1. is N9 is last meego mobile ?
2. will android apps in future will run on N9 ?
3. will nokia ovi will support N9 like it does with other models like N8 ?
i have n9 already , but infortunatly if i did knew before i bought that it doesnt support whatsapp and fring and tango and video skype i wouldnt bought it at all what a mess and loss of nokia developement , maybe i will exchange it to samsung or iphone for sure
I heard that while playing videos on n9 if we lock the phone and unlock then the video plays from first.please tell me its true or not
Can anyone tell me how to activate the front camera of N9 for video calling its not included in the menu will a future software update help fix this issue? Thanks y'all.
an, 08 Jan 2012can anyone of nokia n9 onwers let me know the x-y dimensions of active screen area? you need j... moreWell, if you have the following info:
1) Screen: 3.9" diagonal
2) Resolution: 480x854 (aspect ratio: ~9:16)
Assuming that the pixels are square (N9 uses Pentile configuration so they are not really square, but it's close enough for a valid result in this case), all you need is a little bit of high-school trigonometry to get the dimensions.
To find the angle between the diagonal and the main side, you can use arctan(aspect ratio), which in this case is ~0.5123, and then you can get the sides:
width = 3.9" * sin(0.5123) ~= 1.9" ~= 4.8cm
height = 3.9" * cos(0.5123) ~= 3.4" ~= 8.6cm
Or you can even use pure Pythagoras' theorem, substitution and quadratic equations:
width² + height² = 3.9²
height = width / aspect_ratio
width² + (width / 0.5625)² = 15.21
width ~= 1.9" ~= 4.8cm
height ~= 3.4" ~= 8.6cm
Of course, the real size might differ a bit because of the already mentioned Pentile structure and rounding, but should give you pretty much a good idea of the actual active screen size.
See, high-school math can be useful after all ;)
AnonD-21632, 08 Jan 2012Active screen: 8.5mm x 4.8mm.you mean 85mmx48mm, right?
nokia phones are still the best! Android phones lags too much even though the phone is powered by dual cores and higher gHz.. We all know that nokia lags too but nokias hardware is very different from other phones!
The nokia phone quality is very good..
Samsung/LG phones here in some pawnshop are not accepted because its too fragile..
Many people says that they like android and ios because of hundred thousands of applications!! My question is? Can you install it in your phone? What will you do with it??(nokia n8 line) I believe that there are hundred thousands of third party apps for nokia phones! Maybe nokia doesnt accepted these apps for nokia store.. Nokia is not dying! Actually nokia is getting stronger! Believe me, many of other OS users will turn back to nokia... ü sorry for my bad english
Can anyone tell me how this phone compares with the i-phone, with the likes of what apps are available to download. ie. facebook app, and heytel?

There is radio for this phone thanks to hackers. Fm radio is there but Nokia hide it. This phone is really good and I just need to update it to be more improved.
can anyone of nokia n9 onwers let me know the x-y dimensions of active screen area? you need just a ruler to measure them.
