No physical keyboard, no card slot, no removable battery, max memory: 64gb (same as 2009s n900), desktop full of icons like a f*kin iphone (without widgets), just 1Ghz cpu like any htc or samsung (not dual core expected for end 2011 flagships), only 8MP camera (2010s n8 has 12MP), no radio, no fm transmiter, WHAT? NO 4G?!?, no bluetooth 3.0 (n8 has).
Meego operating system, amoled capacitive display, wifi n, 1GB RAM, carl zeiss optics with autofocus (as most n-series).
Conclusion: its one year late for these specs, but I can't see any phone that clearly outperforms it.. yet.
Azam, 31 Jul 2011This phone is superb...n9 is awesome n fantastica...the os of this phone is the best among the... moreLol, Azam, Nokia should appoint you head of marketing. Their marketing not aggressive. Dont worry N9 coming soon, word is it's cheaper than the Android brands and iphone4.

[deleted post]hi dude who says you that symbian is not nokias. Let you know that symbian is a part of nokia company. In 2008 nokia bought the symbian corporation. so this operating system is only for nokia. And after 2008 nokia has update the symbian os gradually. So dont give us false information. And nokias step to improve symbian os is a right step.
Nokia Wake Up. .It's better to improve symbian instead of trying new O.S. It show's you are lost in the battle of smartphone. samsung is too above from ur version of symbian......... grow up baby .... day by day ur out range
Check this out guy!!
The Nokia N950 is faster than the Apple iPhone4 in the video posted below.
just a little reminder on spec.
Nokia N950 + MeeGo:(1GHz Cortex A8 CPU, PowerVR SGX530 GPU, TI OMAP 3630 chipset, 1 GB RAM, 16/64 GB storage, 480 x 854 pixels (4.0 inches).
Apple iPhone4 + iOS: 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor, PowerVR SGX535 GPU, Apple A4 chipset, 512 MB RAM,16/32 GB storage,640 x 960 pixels (LED-Backlit IPS TFT 3.5 inches)
You can see the main differences are: N950 has lower GPU SGX530 than iPhone4 has better GPU SGX535. Nokia has 1GB ram and Apple has 512 ram. Then, Nokia has 480 x 854 pixels (4.0 inches) and iPhone4 has 640 x 960 pixels (3.5 inches).
More Handset Manufacturers to Join MeeGo – Panasonic and Huawei.
Android legal losses reportedly prompt exodus to Windows Phone and MeeGo.
To answer your questions:
do you think this mobile is worth: Yes this mobile is worth every cent.
1. Weight 135 g little bit more. It is the perfect weight, fits nice in the hand, and is made of a single piece of polycarbonate, vastly superior to the materials most Android devices use.
2. AMOLED only ( Latest technology is Super AMOLED Plus capacitive touchscreen )
WRONG. N9 Screen is right up there with SAMOLED Plus, but even better sunlight legibility and a higher PPI. THE BEST screen currently is in the N9. Do not be fooled by Korean marketing speak.
3. display size 3.9 inches ( Latest Displace Size is 4.3 inches )
It is a perfect size, and has more pixels in 3.9 inches than others in 4,3 inches. In effect, you are looking at air iso pixels in the other screens.
4. Not Extendable Memory no merory slot
64 Gb is more than any other competitor, even the GS2 has only hals and needs a very expensive microsd to match the N9. Hence N9 is cheaper too.
5. HSDPA, 14.4 Mbps Only (Samsung I9100 Galaxy S II = HSDPA, 21 Mbps )
Real world download speeds in the N9 are top notch. I look forward to the first comparison video's.
6. Bluetooth Yes, v2.1 only ( latest version 3 )
Actually you mean BT 4 and yes, it is in there. It is the tech that makes the NFC pairing nice.
7. 8 MP camara only when N9 has a 12 MP camera
You mean N8 with a 12 Mp camera, but this N9 has the best Camera after the N8. You are right on this point, N8 camera is better, yes.
8. No Radio where els N8 has Stereo FM radio with RDS; FM transmitter
FM RX & FM Radio is in the N9
9. Micro sim card support only you have to cut the simcard where after cutting
you cannot use it on other mobiles still now there is no adopter for micro
simcard it is a stupid idea.
No, you are stupid, those adapters a 1 cent pieces of plastic and I have 20 of them on my desk now so I can switch between my C7 and my iPad. No problem.
10. composite TV Video out only, where els N8 has a HDMI with Dolby Digital Plus sound.
True, but DLNA.
11. No DivX and XviD format support where els N8 has DivX and XviD format support
DivX and Xvid will be available through repositories like I have on my N900 now.
12. No Flash Lite v4.0 where els N8 has Flash Lite v4.0 Support.
Screw flash, with class leading HTML5 support, who needs crappy flash.
13. CPU speed is good 1GHz Cortex A8 CPU but the latest technology is Dual-core 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A9 proccessor.
So what? Swipe UI on N9 looks smoother and faster than my sisters GS2. I dont care about processor spead in and of itself. Also, N950, which is slower than N9, already beats iPhone 4 in browser tests. Even beats my iPad 2, which has dual core.
No more added advantage
The best UI, best screen, most fluid interaction, most beautiful design, best reception, great battery life, free offline maps for the entire world, streaming radio, music store, THE BEST multitasking, integrated social networking throughout, (Android has NOTHING on this, really, try it yourself)
No idea about MeeGo OS, v1.2 Harmattan : OS does not matter, it is about Qt.
price not available
Prices are not final yet for all markets.
Dont know there will be external 3rd party plugins and applications for MeeGo OS,
Why dont you know, I already run them on my C7. Qt, remember.
v1.2 Harmattan. ( dont belive OVI it is dam waste compared to Android Market and
iphone stores )
OVI does not exist anymore, it is Nokia store now, and it will come with games. Today 3 new HD Gameloft titles came out.
I dont know whether it will support Youtube without Flash
The Youtube experience on the N9 is class leading, BECAUSE of HTML5.
PLEASE! Try this device :) Then decide for yourself :)
why didnt nokia put the nokia n8 xenon flash in this phone?????
This is just a westage of money
you must buy Samsung galaxy s 2 against N9
don't worry guys Elop and nokia will come to know next year that they have taken biggest wrong decision of adopting w7 os for their devices..it shows how nokia is going through these days ..after making n9 such a powerful handset with meego os they r shifting to w7 os such a nonsense this is to be..they have no sense of humour ,,and not seeing people choices what they want and they can't even released that y samsung,htc, have thrown out w7 0s and adopted android ,and now nokia has adopted w7 os ....this shows nokia and elop are both gone out of mind and they will surely come to know next year when they will release wp7 and hardly people will buy wp7 and surely nokia will be going very down next year.....so don't worry guys time will release nokia very soon till then enjoy ur n9...
zakster, 30 Jul 2011Nokia pls pls pls stop making good phones on crappy os's especially symbian.. nothing is great... moreHell with android.
Linux meego is better than that.
Its already an open source code and what nokia got to do is to acquire rights and create an assistance and technical help for the source code.
Just like google did when the 1st android open source code was launched.
Then Nokia will have an os for their own.
And all these samsung,lg will be trying meego in some phones and will have to pay nokia for assistance and technical support.
But that still remains a dream if nokia stick with microsoft.
Forget symbian. Nokia didnt got anything to do with developing a new symbian os.
Its the duty of symbian corp.
I say nokia should develop a multitasking java oriented os instead of s40 too like sonyericsson is doing in their non-smart phones.
Thats a lot better than dumb symbian40.
X7 is ruined by symbian anna.
Just vga resolution and poor fps.
And yet their ads are based on gaming.
All gingerbread phones got a better resolution and frame rate and more gaming apps than symbian, besides there is even psp style game phone by sony. Then how is x7 gona get clicked with symbian anna inside ?
ANKESH, 30 Jul 2011Nokia Wake Up. .It's better to improve symbian instead of trying new O.S. It show's you are lo... moreu wake up jerk.. first do your homework about maemo and meego then give our opinion..
nokia n9 has no flash lite player but its html5 browser can play flash vedio better than flash player.
u can buy N9 right now in switzerland
