there's scype preinstalled -- but no video call functionality.
I understand this will be introduced sooner or later -- but why would Nokia release a phone which is not complete???
HD video recording, but no HD video out
No audio recording (well, one can possibly download it from ovi)
Not possible to create folders/ pages on home screen (I mean Nokia knew this was an issue with first iOS -- why would they follow the same route?) -- if you have a lot of apps you have to scroll through a very long screen, moreover you have to memorize location of apps. Thanks that there's a search app (I have initially moved it to the bottom of screen, but now consider have to move it on top:)
Number of functions are not customizable -- like you can not set intervals for checking new emails.
I haven't yet tried all functions (like calendar which is messed up now), but the above shows that the phone is not complete

it has 8gb / 16 gb memory + microSD slot; cameras front and rear (8mp); internet/ flash; emails (several accounts); document editing; office/ organizer functions; multitasking; video calls; fm radio; BT; wifi; TV-OUt; easy sync options (BT & USB)
What else do you expect to have in smartphone? read it out here http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_i8510_innov8-2471.php
I bought it back in Jan 2009 (it was an improved copy of Nokia N95, which I used before and which also was at its time an excellent smartphone).
In general, I know only 2 additional truly novel functions that were introduced in phones since then -- NFC and social networks integration and N9 has both, but apparently some of the previous functions are either not there or not usable
for me this phone is one of the best.. unlike iphone or samsung; NOKIA phones have NO LIMITS. the iphone cannot send mp3 or images via bluetooth, they need some appCRAP that doesn't even work well. samsung should be jailbroken to be optimized to its full performance and jailbreaking always has the risks.
if you got the money, make your choice...
samsung GALAXY NOTE:
by the time I get my salary, I will surely decide and get one. :D

Features are perfect BUT hardware design and style is like in STONE AGE...improve yourself nokia
I have a Samsung Galaxy S 2,but I love this phone,Nokia always will be Nokia,exelent quality
Well, today i got the chance to try an N9 and i've gotta say it is beautiful. It has an amazing screen, its very quick and overall delivered a great experience. I couldn't test the camera though.
Anyway i would think more than twice about buying it because since its Meego, it may lack many applications (Whatsapp the most important for me) and support.
Looking forward to your opinions!

Guys what do you think of the apps for the N9? Are there more coming? Is it using the same ones from Symbian?
This is the only thing holding me back from fully comitting on buying this phone. I'm now considering the 800 if the future of apps for the n9 is bleak.
Just got my N9 64Gb and I've got to say the curved screen is just amazing. The icons look like someone painted them on the phone.
Compared it to SGS II and to iPhone 4 and it beats both in my opinion.
i'm planning to buy the phone.. but seems a lot of bugs on OS.. will consider other phone..

hulkforall, 14 Oct 2011Thats why you have to do a test drive first before you buy it. Also, this is a phone, not a &q... moreHulk, the thing is you dont have to simply scold mamed, call him this & that, not nice. Try to help instead
mamed, 14 Oct 2011Just to finalize.
One would normally expect that smartphone has a sync functionality -- so ... moreThe sync with bluetooth thingy is the usual way, they also have the instructions in the N9 user guide. As you can see from the Maemo forum, it even works with one guy's old E71. But unfortunately yours didnt work the usual way.
Another thing is I dont consider N9 to be flagship model. WP7 phones are supposed to be, at least while Mr Elop is CEO.
Knowing N9 is Meego & different from Symbian/Android/IOS, I already search out the relevant Maemo/Meego forums on it cos I knew it will work differently from the other OS.
Everyone(1st batch of buyers) already knew N9 dont the software for FM radio yet(coming soon) & it doesnt have whatsapp. And of course, it being the 1st & last Meego from Nokia & all that.
Anyway, if you face problems, try reading that thread in talkmaemo. Any other important functions that you cant use?
Im trying to get this phone here in Sweden but its not that easy. It is stated that it will be available in three colors and two sizes of memory. Not altogether true. The black 16Gb has been released and is out. The black 64Gb is not out yet. The cyan and magenta are neither out yet, AND WILL ONLY BE RELEASED IN 16Gb! Whyyy?
Many retailers only harbour the black 16Gb, because they dont know how many who will buy coloured phones. But pre-orders should make thier risk minimal.
And why Nokia wont make every colour in every memory size is beyond me. The phones are not expandable either in the aftermarket. Quite dissapointing, as I wanted a blue one with the big memory. Every other mobile is black these days, I wanted something different, and Im not talking skinwise. This info came directly from Nokias help desk.
Need some help here: Is 16Gb enough? Or should i procure the 64Gb, (though black as Darth Vader aka Dark Force) and with that be future-safe as memory space goes?
(I take lot of pictures and films, have two camera worthy children... but I guess thats about it.)
Help me Nokia N9 comment readers, you are my only hope!
