sting, 15 Nov 2011don't buy this peace of crap. bad battery, bad OS, no apps, no WHATSAPP... i regret i bought itseems like a lie....either that or u got a defective unit. even gsmarena's review about the battery life shows that N9 lasts pretty long with a decent amount of usage.

I'm waiting regardless as I'm happy with my N9 as it is.
Posted from my Nokia N9 :)
I recently bought the N9 and to my disappointment its actually not for me, I'm quite a social person (no I want a blackberry) the OS is great but to me it feels unfinished. There are barely any IM's to use besides facebook, twitter and google talk; the rest you have to wait for, if they ever come. This phone is for people who have a social life not on a phone. The N8 was my previous phone and I believe its the best phone I've ever had because it did everything I wanted it to do and more.
Using n9 to write this and just updated my software through Nokia software updater from molds Europe website.just wanna say.... Am loving swype!!!!!!!. Just update using Nokia software updater. works in new Zealand. Good luck.
Love my n9ne.
PS: Funny How swype makes me write n9ne when I type n9. Lol.
It knows text language...
N9 owners who havent updated to PR 1.1 , please refer for latest list on navifirm :
Others inquiries, can discuss in maemo forum. I cant post the list here, gsmarena will delete it as spam

The same can also be said of Samsung fans who think Samsung is the greatest brand and others suck. Aiyooo, you like S2, go play with your S2, what for you want to argue with N9 owners like N9 is the most important competitor to Samsung, lol.
Samsung fans like to do that all the time, in Iphone & Nokia threads. I dont bother with S2 or Samsung threads, you are the one who repeatedly come & disturb.
Lol, the funniest thing is you keep telling S2 owners who also own N9(& some also the N900), S2 battery life as good. They dont experience it so,they have the S2. How you know as good or not when you dont actually use the N9 in real life, when they use both(there are quite a number in the other forums)
Meanwhile, we are more concerned with the PR 1.1 update.
don't buy this peace of crap. bad battery, bad OS, no apps, no WHATSAPP... i regret i bought it
AnonD-12237, 15 Nov 2011Sorry, not impressed. n9 is better. I know that fans think Nokia is better than any other phone from any other company, but Androids are not as bad as you Nokia-fans think and always write many comments about! Fact is that Android is just as good, if not far better than MeeGo, and S2 batterylife is almost identical to N9 and 4S, and with the official 2000 mAh Samsung battery made for S2 the batterylife is even better! But S2 is a lot more fun to use than any other phone, and streaming Flash 11 movies consume a lot of battery, but Flash can be turned of or used only on demand and browsers on Android can easily use html5...!
I often watch CNN and FoxNews as live flash streaming and I can listen to the streaming TV-news when editing documents... and return to watching the streaming TV whenever something interesting come on the news!

Having every open webpage show as an open app in the list of open apps only makes the list too long!
On S2 streamed movies do not have to be paused when open in the background, so I can listen to the sounds from the movie when I edit a docomunt or... and can return to the constantly playing movie when I hear that it starts to become interesting again!

If only used for phonecalls and sms and e-mails then s2 have just as long batterylife as any old Nokia, and it definetly have very much better batterylife than my old N97 mini!
Still update PR1.1 not available in UAE :( come on Nokia update it fast
AnonD-112, 15 Nov 2011Did you even read my comment?
I said no one knows about the update not even Nokia themselves.... moreSome Australians have successfully updated to PR 1.1 thru nokia software updated. That was last weekend, now I'm not sure.
As for Nokia not knowing, they know :

And whats with giving your email? No one wants to email you as the update you on about doesn't exist.
Read before you comment please.

"S2 actually have one of the best batterylifes of all smartphones!"??? FYI, I use an S2 & it is one of the CRAPPIEST battery of all the phones I used. You want to compare it's battery life, compare it to my 2 years old E72, still got the kick inside with 5 days standby after a couple of hours talk daily. Don't bullshit about the battery. Except for that, S2 is a very good mini-PC, but a DUMB phone. If you want to know why I call it a DUMB phone, go to N8's thread, read my comments on SGS2. You'll find it yourself.
AnonD-252, 15 Nov 2011N9 is good, but S2 is better and less expensive!
Right now I am writing this message/comment ... moredon't really care about what you are doing, but, ICS does NOT show open apps like N9: apps are live in N9, if a page is loading, it shows, if a music is playing, it shows it!! S2 will be doing something symbian like, showing old dated screen shots of what you had been doing, and not actually work on them at the moment!!
even if you close the maps they will stop working!!!
