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..

AnonD-26017, 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!

With a phone like N9, you will probably use pod radio through internet, right. In Sweden most of us have free internet connectivity in our phones through operator. Then why use common radio? Anyway, it is stated that the phone has that capability, you just have to have an app for it...
AnonD-26017, 14 Oct 2011Just to finalize. One would normally expect that smartphone has a sync functionality -- so ... moreman... that's sad... i really expected at least a proper sync... thanks for the information dude... i am really reconsidering my decision whether to buy this phone or not...really appreciate if you could find any other major problems like this after using this phone...

One would normally expect that smartphone has a sync functionality -- so you never test whether it works or not. In particular, when phone settings have sync & backup function. I have checked phone, notices for example that it does not have FM radio (and I'm fine with this and not complaining), but am I supposed to check every piece of hard and soft on the phone?
I understand it is not a Vertu phone, but it is still Nokia's flagship model -- so releasing phone that is not yet completed (and over last couple of days I discovered some more disappointing problems) -- is too bad for Nokia, which supposedly should now fight for its place on smartphone market.
My example with car is a proper one -- you would never check whether there's oil in engine, or a reverse shift -- these are things that you expect that are in place, no matter whether it is a premium car or not.
And a last point the BT sync (that you say everybody else is using) -- is not that functional: (1) it messed up all calendar items; (2) when you sync once again -- it copies all contacts, rather than cimply checking and making changes.

Also, this is a phone, not a "premium sedan" that you have to spend your $50.000,- or even more to get it. Where is the fun when you already get everything on your phone? The fun is when you do some search for the features to complete your phone. Thats more satisfied me.

For the money I paid for this phone -- I want to have all functionality that you expect in a smartphone. I want that to be easy to use, and not to waste my time for the things that guys whom I paid for their product have not done.
[deleted post]I agree that we as a customer should get a better service from nokia. But I also understand that we should be a little bit more patient and wait until at least the next 2 months to give nokia the change to fix all of the problems. This meego is a new breed so you need to be patient. Dont be like a jerk who always bash everything without giving any chance for solving problem. But I guess you dont understand what I mean do you? What a pity...
Those who couldnt delete music or organise files from N9, install 'File Manager' from Ovi Store/Nokia Store
