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?
AnonD-13986, 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.)

Jack Sparo, 09 Oct 2011you say years ago? nokia e72 came out october 2009, 2 years ago... thats when the 3gs was arou... moreYeah, 2 years is years ago in smartphone world. Now there symbian anna & later belle. I'm also a E series user.
Anyway,if u like iphone, then so be it. In my country, alot of people buy iphone cos its the in thing, can show off. Some just use it for calls,sms, email, buy such expensive phone just for that, lol.
I find it unpractical to buy a phone without bluetooth, requires constant connection to the i..... To download stuff and with glass back cover. I'll be comsantly worried it will break with my rugged usage
You dont hv to concerned abt n9 giving competition, it wouldnt reach anywhere near the sales of S2 or iphone.
Does the phone supports divx/xvid/.avi video formats??? Does it supports adobe flash player?? Thez r not mentioned in the specs... If it does not support both of these thn buying it is the wastage of money....
nilujazz, 05 Oct 2011i heard that N9 will not launch in india. Thats true?Most probably it IS true that India is NOT getting N9 in their market. I have read somewhere in this blog that the countries that are getting N9 in their Nokia store are getting N9's description in their country's Nokia page. For example, if you are from India & want to check whether you'll get N9 in your country or not, go to www.nokia.com & choose India as your country. If you can find N9 in that page, then your country will get N9. I know for sure, USA is not getting N9 & it is NOT available in nokia.com.us page. It is also unavailable in nokia.co.in (India), so they might not get N9 as well.
innovation commands , 08 Oct 2011Samsung fans won't understand that innovation comes at a price.there are two kinds of innovati... moreyour so damn right. Samsung is just a box shover. Putting the most powerful technology in there cheap uninspiring plastic boxes. Oh and did i mention even there design is copied from iphone. Its no coincidence, Samsung intentionally chose to copy rather then to innovate. And you buy a Samsung you will think you got the best piece of technology, well yes for like 3 months only cos a same thing will come out with better specs. See all android phone are in the specs pissing race Cos Thats the only thing Thats differentiating them. Samsung manages to the most juiciest specs in their phones cos they manufacture some of there component so is able to obtain it cheaper and put it in their boxes within the budget, they don't even have to pay for android too.
N9 don't need duel core. You put one in there it won't make a difference and you will need to go to a larger battery. All this means you have to pay more. And what difference does 1080p videos make when you are watching it on your phone besides eating up more memory.
