Slim_s#@dy, 11 Jul 2011for those poeple who say "oh y do u want more than
1 Ghz or its enough to be 1GHz"... moreWhile I do find most of the high-end Android phone's specs impressive, I still find it dissapointing that the real-world results didn't give out the expected results.. Also, please get some of your facts straight, some of it are just plain wrong.
From what you've posted, you're following the concept of ''newer is better''. This is the case usually, but for a phone it's getting saturated.
''low quality and boring apps''. Try digging around some more, you'd be surprised.
''extremely low experience OS''. *facepalm*
While the SGS II is quite a feat, you'd be a fool to ignore the vast potential of the N9.
And finally, the case of dual-cores. Right now, most of the Qt apps in Ovi utilizes in only 1 core, in what point would a 1 GHz dual-core help the N9?
Slim_s#@dy, 11 Jul 2011for those poeple who say "oh y do u want more than
1 Ghz or its enough to be 1GHz"... moreGet your facts straight the n9 does support flash. Here are the formats straight from the nokia site. "The Nokia N9 played back the trailers I downloaded, which were MPEG-4, but it also supports the following video formats: 3GPP formats (H.263), ASF, AVI, Flash Video, H.264/AVC, Matroska, VC-1, WMV 9, XVID and up to 720p – 30 fps". Also the n9 has access to millions of apps from the qt store and can run android apps. Also the n9 has better screen res than the sgs2 and a better camera as well. Also the n9 arguably has one of the most innovative and efficient operating systems. I don't see the sgs2 multitasking 50 apps much less 200 anytime soon. Also what does the sgs2 use those extra .2ghz for? Nothing for it performs no better than phones with 1ghz. Also why would a smart phone want a high gpu and processor, do the developers plan on putting uncharted and crysis which require a lot of processing power on the phones.
Also who has the highest browser scores on a mobile phone? Not the sgs2 for sure in fact the n9 even has desktop browsers beat. Does the sgs2 have dolby digital encoding?no. Does sgs2 have nfc pairing? no.
Slim_s#@dy, 11 Jul 2011for those poeple who say "oh y do u want more than 1 Ghz or its enough to be 1GHz"... moreSlim_s#@dy : And what wud u do with the dual core? Have you seen how it heat's up? Hav u seen how the battery drains and u have to charge it daily?u hold a iphone, a galaxy s2 or a optimus in ur hand and a layman can never make out. all look the same !! same color, same form factor. I'm not a big fan of Nokia but atleast they have come up with a different form factor. just see how refreshing it looks. but they shud have a done a better job with the color options
The N9 is bought from my side.
Its price is only about 660$ with no operator.
I love the Meego Os.
I have owned several Nokia phones before,
But by far, I love this the most.
I own an I -phone 4, but owning a Nokia, is just something different.
for those poeple who say "oh y do u want more than
1 Ghz or its enough to be 1GHz", well open your eyes and look on its competitors, what would you rather buy for a new phone, (nokia n9:)1Ghz, 1450mAH battery, outdated gpu(older than the one used in iphone 3G which came out in 09, now its 011!), have a 3.9' screen, get a phone with ovi store and its low quality boring apps, and have a extremely low experience OS, no flash support for the browser or
(Samsung Galaxy S2): a phone with 1.2 Ghz dual core!, with a same ram of 1GB, 1080p recording, has a bigger screen 4.3', Android 2.3-one of the best OS, have android market apps, with over 200,000 apps and a huge battery of 1650mAH and also u can add on storage later on,
u choose and be the judge of it, i got nothin against nokia, its just that nokia stuff is good but its really out-dated, like the n8 and now this, and i aint a samsung galaxy s2 fan, look at lg optimus, htc sensation, they all got dual core processors, nokia dont even got that!
remy, 11 Jul 2011Ugly design although slim, no rounded corners, looks like a brick and the main page it`s a cop... moreIt's too bad that you found the hardware design bad, but it's the inside that counts. Oh wait...
''no personality''? Ever heard of it's swipe gesture?
AnonD-12237, 11 Jul 2011People are saying that this machine should be more powerful. I don't see why thats necessary. ... moreI second this. People are getting spoiled these days. Honestly, what the hell do you use a phone for? Playing Crysis?! Of course not.
The 1 GHz clock speed is more than enough and it's GPU is there if you needed some light gaming. Honestly I'd say anything above 900 MHz is the sweet spot, though different OS have different requirements.
This phone is in my 'want' list, the 64 GB version of course. The 16 GB's price doesn't seem to justify it.
remy, 11 Jul 2011Ugly design although slim, no rounded corners, looks like a brick and the main page it`s a cop... moreWhat device are you talking about? Surely the N9 is leaps and bounds beyond the rest design wise. And I also take it you meant to say Swipe UI is far beyond iOS in ease of use? Or do you really like that double press of a button to see icons you could have seen on the homescreen as well.
People are saying that this machine should be more powerful. I don't see why thats necessary. 1GHz is enough to run the device smoothly. So i don't know whats the point of making it more powerful or adding a dual core except for adding more cost. In fact its the ram that counts cos there'll be a lot of multi-tasking.
I don't really care about games cos i don't play a lot of games except fruit ninja, so i'm not really fussed about not having many games.
The task I perform the most the a phone is to browse the web, make calls & messages, organise schedules, keeping reminders, browsing the web, using GPS and setting the alarm. I'm impressed by the way N9 handles these tasks so thats why this phone is on my buy list, instead of fancy schmancy super powerful android phones.
I will definitely buy this phone. Actually I already preordered it :) Black one of course
No specific information on prize or release day unfortunately.
I'm certain it does everything I need, and much more.
Would love to have USB OTG like N8 though, also the camera of N8 is the best on the market right now, but I know N9 will produce sufficient quality pictures for me. I still have my DSLR for real photography ;)
Maybe it's just me, but I have never understand the app hype with iOS and Android. There's few apps I would consider essential, and for the games, I can live without. Also I dislike the need to use apps for browsing the internet, a good browser with well made pages for mobile is enough. I know companies will notice this eventually. They just save so much time and money when they don't need to make separate apps for every platform.
Also the idea of jail breaking or rooting my new phone to make the most out of it, feels just idiotic. I want my phone to just work out of the box, I've paid hard money on it so I should be able to do what I want with it.
Amit, 11 Jul 2011i have optimus x2 this is great, so dont wait for any new phone just buy optimus 2x and see ne... moreAgreed, the LG Optimus 2x is a great phone for it's price. More the reason for Nokia to put down the appropriate price of the N9.
malik, 11 Jul 2011i need this mobile.. i hope some update can fix the radio and transmitter. Its already bad eno... moreWell, if you're happy with your N8, why don't you stick with it? You could always use N-Desk if you're not satisfied with Symbian Anna. :)
The N8 is a great phone, and for me, severely underrated due to it's specs. Technology evolves fast, if you buy a new phone make sure it'll be a product that'll last.
i need this mobile.. i hope some update can fix the radio and transmitter. Its already bad enough that there is no usb OTG and HDMI. Cant blame me am an N8 addict, i use it with SPB mobile shell and think its the best phone..
If this phone is appropriately price, I won't have any doubts it'll sell well.
If it undergoes development from Intel, I hope it's music player is on par with Symbian's own, or perhaps an improved music player. Now that would be a welcome addition in my book.
Ugly design although slim, no rounded corners, looks like a brick and the main page it`s a copy of iPhone`s interface. It has no personality.
i have optimus x2 this is great, so dont wait for any new phone just buy optimus 2x and see new 3d word and super fast speed
Mobilemaster, 11 Jul 2011Guys, guys, everybody knows that Samsung is preparing to take over Nokia. This is Nokia's faul... moreThat is quite possible, though I doubt Microsoft would allow such a tasty snack to be taken away from them. I'm not sure how much of a trojan Elop is, but an opportunity like this isn't going to be scoffed at from both Samsung and Microsoft.
Guys, guys, everybody knows that Samsung is preparing to take over Nokia. This is Nokia's fault. I am absolutely sure that they will take over soon. By the way the N9 could have a big success, but maybe it's not enough.
Anonymous, 11 Jul 2011don't bother to put long posts. nobody waste time to read your stupid novels. meego in two yea... moreLMAO! i know right? xD
they're writing the next Harry Potter book on this site hahaha
funny how you just poke them a little & they rage all over the site "trying" to prove something with their elaborate replies, as if we're going to bother reading them anyways! :P
they're like little kids who just found out Santa is a myth, & don't know what to do, so they rage over us! xD
