i'm not a fan of iphone, android or nokia but have owned a n900 for 2 years and was gutted when Nokia knocked Maemo on the head. the n900 is obviously low in specs now but I wouldn't swap it for any Android or Iphone, those operating systems are too lame (and i'm fully famliar with both of them).
Not so long ago my n900 broke and nokia replaced it with an e7. i loved the design but did not enjoy using symbian anna. It's about time i upgraded and the N9 is the obvious choice (Maemo's successor). i purchased one and it's on it's way.
There was no other phone i could possibly go for after owning a N900. Iphone fans can carry on believing that Apple is the only company that can innovate phones. Android fans can carry on believing that the best phone is the one with the highest specs and biggest screen. In reality it's about whether the phone fits your needs out of the box. On my n900 i installed about 10 useful apps and the phone did absolutely everything i needed for 2 years and it did it better than anything else.
I hope this will have a good battery. With a processor like that, it may be a power hog.

sallu002, 09 Oct 2011So anybody who has already bought and started using N9, please provide your review....how is i... moreIt just launched 7 Oct, now is setting up, testing. On battery life, one week's time give feedback.
No whatsapp, no FM radio(at the moment). Whatsapp it seems its the whatsapp co not adding Meego. But I dont use both features, so no prob
Meanwhile, you can watch the unboxing & review from 1 Australian guy :
So anybody who has already bought and started using N9, please provide your review....how is it so far?? wat abt the battery life??etc etc etc
AndroGarcia, 09 Oct 2011Well,its performance 8MP cam,single core 1Ghz and yada yada yada...not impress...other fon alr... moreso many times its been explained here regarding the processor power....and still u go on about it
Meego doesn't require a dual core processor to run smoothly....even the current android doesn require, ..saying this because i did get my hands on N9....tested it...runs absolutely fast...no lag...you need to test it before you can blame it....
8Mp cam in Nokia is way better than 8mp on other devices(exc 4s...still not in market)
regarding built quality... Nokia phones are well known for their built quality no matter which material they use(metal or plastic)....something that Samsung really fails...
You should atleast test the product before you can write it off saying it doesn't have dual core and blah blah blah....
Nokia tie up with Google android .don't peep in ur pant with windows. and meego
status of this phone is released since sept. 2011. yet, where can i buy it?
[deleted post]'blind ppl always stay blind'....wondering...were you refering to your self? Polycarbonate is much more durable better reception than normal plastic, heck even HTC is also investing on a hi-tech NanoMolding Technology, which is the process of combining both metal and plastic. Now that ain't you normally see like ***cough*samsung*cough***, so who's the blind now huh?
eagle3, 09 Oct 2011Yeah, 2 years is years ago in smartphone world. Now there symbian anna & later belle. I'm ... moreI would second on you on that, N9 were nvr being developed as contender to other well famous hp, but solely to give user a new experiance on how a phone should be, ease of use and a superb multi tasking ability EVER seen (second to symbian)
[deleted post] As been repeated many times, it's not cheap plastic, it's polycarbonate, used in ice hockey helmets. 1 piece, not a few pieces glued together. When your Samsung manage to reach beyond 2 year mark(mine didnt, hence deepen my belief on the 'cheap plastic'), then only come back & talk
Nokia N9 was suppose to release atleast 3 months ahead of iphone 4S announced, see the result of with-holding for long periods even after completing all formalities test.
now rapidly losing its popularity .
AndroGarcia, 09 Oct 2011Well,its performance 8MP cam,single core 1Ghz and yada yada yada...not impress...other fon alr... moreGiants- Sony....(why didn't you say BB or htc?) Good Job showing off your knowledge...
1) UI. The Meego UI is wonderful. That's it.
Android. Not there yet.
2) If you buying phone for specs, how much do you really enjoy the advantages of the phone's hardware?
Most Apps don't need such high specs, so basically ppl are wasting money.
3) Look for the best UI that suits you most.
Some ppl prefer iOS, some prefer Android, some prefer BB OS, some prefer Meego.
So why are you blinded by specs instead of searching for the UI that suits you best?
I pray that you can find a phone that suits you best, not just best specs.
In the end, it's your phone.
But please, do not try to stop people's rights to find a phone that suits them best.
Well,its performance 8MP cam,single core 1Ghz and yada yada yada...not impress...other fon already have 8mp cam..1ghz???other fon have 1.2,1.5 and even dual core processor...this is the best that nokia can came out with?when will they learn...nokia is not as good as they were...if they continue to make something like this,i afraid they will nvr be in the same league with the giants (Samsung,Iphone,Sony etc.)
