Nokia makes extremely rugged phone..but lags compet with at least 1 year. Now we r hoping a comeback with symbian belle 500, 600, 700 etc . The N9 is ravishing in looks ...Why meego ..not symbian a tried tested software in this part of world India.
Nokia has a great brand value, however it overchargesindians for their loyalty...emotional atyachaar !. Hope it churns out VFM products and seize back its turf in India. Good luck nokia..expect to see N9 with symbian belle
Skunkey, 18 Sep 2011Well, SGSII is better in everything than NN9 (I might be wrong, 'cause I never finished readin... moreThat is why I've been saying in the other threads, Samsung or other such type phones are for the fashionable, every 1 to 2 years change phone. The last Samsung I had was only 1.5 years, due to 2 drops. That's the shortest lifetime for any mobile phone I've owned. The Nokias I've owned lasted 5 years, now I give it 3 years, due to the "Made in China" sets, which is what all Asia countries get .
You havent seen the videos on N9 yet on it's fluidity. It's Meego not Symbian, different experience from N8. But if it's apps & loads of apps that you want, Android would be your thing.
it's sad this awesome device with so much richness hardware-wise gets an OS that isn't so much used and popular. i'm sure the number of aps meego has is in level (if not less) with bada os
Anonymous, 17 Sep 2011Beating Galaxy SII? You wish... Just 'cause SGSII and NN9 BOTH have 1GB Ram and a dual-core CP... moreN9 definitelY better than sg2.
N9 claims to be the fastest phone. Fastest camera and everything. It can run up to 20 apps without lag. Meego is a much more efficient OS than android. 1GHz Meego = 2GHz android.
And also the battery life beats all over smartphones as claimed by the ppl who had already used the phone.
Also the display is much more superior than the sg2 display. Better viewing angles, better under sunlight and everything. Gsm arena even had an article about this.
N9 is fitted with Carl Zeiss lens camera which producer the best image quality of any phone besides the n8. The low light quality is superb. Just take a look at the N9 photo gallery and you see why it has the best camera.
N9 is made from a tough 1 piece of polycarbonate whereas sg is cheap plastic.
have personally used this phone. its a great device. nokia isnt quite back yet... but soon, well mayve
In 2005 i bought an Iaudio X5 ("mp3-player"). It had a low-resolution color screen, and 20 GB HDD and supported all important audio formats (MP3, WMA, FLAC,WAV, asf and OGG Vorbis).
I was very sad when I broke the internal battery (only runs on mains) after ruough handling in the military). I have found no close match (worth paying for) in temrs of specs and it has been even harder in terms of finding it in a phone (because, who wants to have TWO gadgets in his pocket if there is ONE that has it all?).
N9 supports ogg vorbis, FLAC (lossless audio) AND Dolby Digital plus! This (and the fact that it is actually a superb smart phone too) made me order the 64Gb version and I am dying for the package to come...
(I have been doing OK with the Nokia 5800 Gun Black and a 16 GB MicroSDHC this far but running out of memo)
AnonD-10458, 18 Sep 2011One question for u, what is avarage life of nokia mobile as compair to nearly all other mobile... moreWell, SGSII is better in everything than NN9 (I might be wrong, 'cause I never finished reading the specs :P). But if you look at my comment, I said: "almost everything", 'cause I thought of your notion. And I do agree with you. But I am too spoiled to use a phone for 5 years. I never use a phone longer than 1 year (except for NN8. I used it longer than a year and still am using it), after a year of SGS (I'm not talking about older history), I bought SGSII. Acording to the news, SGSIII might come at summer (which is a year after SGSII). I'm not sure about the service center of Samsung. Seemed good enough for me. Well, Symbian OS seems good enough for others while I still get frustrated using it. Don't think I hate Nokia and all, I even like Nokia (almost as much as I like Android), the only thing I hate about Nokia is Symbian OS (mentioned why), I just like joking around. (The owner of this comment has a name now :D, with all the respect for Nokia and Android and high disrespect for Apple :) )
Nice look. I really would like Nokia start using android or at least do totally revamp on the Symbian OS.
AnonD-10458, 18 Sep 2011One question for u, what is avarage life of nokia mobile as compair to nearly all other mobile... morei have a n73 music edition...i bought it in decemeber 2007 n it cost me $400.still im using it n having small issues but the best phone eva....nokia z da best.....
No matter at present samsung is doing good but it is for sure that in another 2to3 years samsung users will switch back to Nokia because of samsungs poor quality phones whic don last for 2years without any repair and a 100% battery wearout. How many of samsung users are using 1year old battery and its still workin fine? My samsung phone started to give problems in 1.5years of usage. Signal suddenly drops to zero while speakin and call disconnects, battery backup has reduced by 60%. My nokia is a masterpiece whic still works fine even it s 2 year old and no battery replacement, dropped it many times. Nokia is known for its durability and build quality and now atleast with severe loss in market share nokia is working more on quality.
its not about the OS that make nokia fly down and kicked out from the throne...
I mean look at the spec...
