The faster the better considering all other things equal, yes. There is the rub. Other things are not equal. It is a different technology stack. Which is why the N9 is buttery smooth, which I can't say for a lot of high specced Androids. Not trolling here but it is definitely the case that Swipe UI on this device is as smooth as iOS or WP7 on the latest devices.
Real world speed perception is not about specs but how fast users can start and restart tasks, and switch between them. Obviousy, because of the UI, the N9 beats the pants of the other devices. I will get from A to B more quicly because of the Swipe paradigm and the stellar multitasking implementation.
Furthermore, besides niceties for marketing, having a dual core processor in Android has exactly di#$-all speed improvements outside of benchmarks. With the total lack of hardware acceleration that is.
And about the apps: Qt. There are already Millions of Qt enabled devices out there, and there will be 150 Million sold still. That is more than the entire active number of iOS devices, with which I just want to point out, it is a big number.
Now, Nokia also said the device will be supported for years and will get OS updates. If what they did for the N900 is any indication, we should be hugely happy about that.
PS, bought my sister a Sammy, but she too now would have preferred the N9.

About the CPU thing, imo the faster the better! I m not talking about two months from now but I am taking about a year from now. There will be a higher number of devices with better cpu speed and probably even better than dual cores and developers will start focusing on better quality apps, and optimized more for latest devices.
About the screen, well I haven't read what gsm arena wrote about the n9 screen, you might be right on that! =) About the OS, well ye i m completely biased. I liked maemo on the n900 and i was waiting eagerly for meego but now meego has to compete with android and ios which are much more mature! You must also take into account that there are alot of manufacturers producing devices with android and nokia is going to produce only this device with the meego os (correct me if i'm wrong!)

The n9 is going to be supported fully. It would run all apps made for subsequent symbian device.
"Dual Core, Super Amoled + and Android"
If you're of the opinion that a faster processor is always better then it isn't worth the debate. Super amoled is no better than CBAmoled. Infact, the n9 screen is better than the sII screen as it has a higher pixel density. Gsmarena themselves said it to be the best mobile display ever. Android. . . depends on your orientation. I prefer symbian. Someone else could prefer meego. Some wp7.
mistake a gig of ram and comes with 16 0r 64 gig with no card slot
Is it true theres no memory card slot and only a gig of memory ???
[deleted post]In which world are you living? I waited for the nokia N9 for months! Than Elop came with his bullshit that he is going to focus on windows mobile rather than meego and personally, I don t want to buy a device that is not going to be supported fully such as android devices for example. I decided to buy the best mobile phone at the moment which is the SGS 2 and when nokia announced the n9, i was still intrigued. Still I was disappointed with the specs -.- - Nokia N9> SGS 2? rly? Three words: Dual Core, Super Amoled + and Android! I know atm dual core devices are not utilizing their full potential but they are at least future proof! This phone should have been released in 2010 and not in 2011. 2011 is the year of dual cores -.- However I still have to give credit to Nokia for the design and looks of this phone! It looks superb! Still I wish nokia will be successful with this phone in order to bring more competition in the market! Cheers! =)
nokia making fullish mobiles LG optimus and SAMSUNG Galaxy s 2 are really really better then nokia
Anonymous, 08 Jul 2011this phone should be price lower than samsung galaxy s2 if it want to be successfull.dont campare nokia to samsumg,nokia always give u a good quality,
Its good in look but i thing it may more cute if its design as x7 , camera 8MP auto focus is good i expect another one with 12 MP auto focus from nokia other than N8

[deleted post]Quite frankly it's obvious you've never or barely used any Nokia phones before. News flash, Nokia is know THROUGHOUT the world for using durable components for their mobile phones.
So yeah, it's "just plastic" that can withstand far more drops, hits and shocks than any other phones out there.
