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.
i am planning to purchase a nokia n9, but i am not sure how big is the screen. nokia says n9 has a diogonal 3.9 inches screen but this does not tell properly sreen's dimensions.

phoneaddict, 07 Jan 2012Hey ymer, I've seen this phone on display here. The sales girl said it doesn't plays flash. B... morehi phoneaddict... it does play youtube videos but it does not support flash, which means when you go to like gsmarena site it won't load the flash supported icons/ videos you usually see playing...there's just an arrow icon there or some icon which tells you it will not be shown or sometimes just a blank space there... anyway, i suggest you weigh your options with your needs, if the flash support thing is really very important for you in a mobile device then try to look for other mobile device that is within your budget that has this specification... personally it took me months researching and going back and forth in different tech websites such as gsmarena, reading comments and reviews weighing my options before finally deciding to buy N9... and i don't regret it... honestly, im not into buying so many devices just for the sake of having them but i buy what i need... so i can only advice you to think it over and try to see yourself if you can be okay with the perks and shortcomings of the device you buy 6mos to a year from now... hehe... i hope i helped you in some small way and good luck with your decision making... take care. (^_^)
n9???...simply amazing..easy to navigate...it satisfies my needs...no need to compare to other units coz uniqueness was great..tnx nokia
