the n9 doesn't run meego. It runs harmmattan which is nokia own
project. The ui on this device is nokias proprietory software and not
The reasons for the positive response the n9 got were
Like i said earlier, regarding the ui, its not meego.
“It has many UX, design and material innovations that we are going to
use and expand upon in forthcoming devices. I cannot tell you about them
more clearly yet, but you’ll see soon (what I mean).” -Elop
is elop telling you in plain english that nokia would continue/improve
this ui in forthcoming devices. Heck they made a video to show of the ui
plus a manual on how to go around it. Do you think they did that just
for the n9?
Here are the facts.
1 Nokia intends to continue with the ui on future devices.
2 Nokia intends to continue with Qt.
3 WP does not, can not and will never support Qt
4 Nokia is discontinuing meego.
Do the math. Nokia is developing a new os with Qt at heart and a similar ui to that shown on the n9.
speaking today at work with people who not interested in mobiles really like the magenta version..It does not matter what sytem i said it was running its gobbl-de-gook to them,as long as it does the basics thats all that mattered..
i think the magenta version will run out of stock quick..

Keep both MeegGo and Windows Phone 7 devices. If Nokia don't keep MeeGo for future, then consumers will not buy Nokia N9.

Elop announced in nokia connection that Qt will lives on next billion S40 devices and qt is an ecosystem. so that means meego has an ecosystem and it has a great support in future. note that qt is a sdk tool, to write the code once and deploy the software to different platform.meego is qt.
they r using this phone as their ace to test MeeGo on the market
but what if they failed to attract people?
so many powerful competitive OS to be deal with
and even Android's Ice cream update is coming
dont test ur luck Nokia
being ego on not using Android will soon have effect on u
symbian dont even stand a chance with iOS or BB OS let alone androids
we'll see how far can they go on N9
Nokia's Stephen Elop is still over MeeGo, even if the N9 is a hit.
An awful lot has been happening in Nokialand over the past week. A few days ago, we spent our first real quality moments with the much discussed N9, and we were pretty blown away by the MeeGo smartphone. Fast forward a mere two days, and we catch wind of a pretty suspicious looking leak of "Sea Ray," the company's first Windows Phone handset where else but sitting firmly in the hand of CEO Stephen Elop. Just in case that brand of corporate subtlety didn't quite drive the point home, the executive gave an interview with Finnish newspaper Helsingin Sanomat this week, confirming the nearly universal suspicion that it will abandon the Linux-based OS. Elop told the paper that, even if the N9 proves a massive hit, Nokia is going to turn its attention to other, more Windows Mobiley things.

AnonD-2461, 26 Jun 2011No single button at the front ,no radio ,micro sim,hdmi?,Usb OTG? ...!!oh. and it has Fm transmitter. but no software pre-installed. for android fans. why do you come here and bash and troll? go to your own fav phone pages and praise there. don't be jealous of this phone just because it has high interest or daily hits. get a life
Let me know, in this set VOIP or SIP service is available or not.
the icons seems to be cheap as well as its design. and it got no RADIO, what is this nokia going to do???

It does make you wonder if the 'sea ray' WP7 will be the N9 with these omissions added (sad as this has copy & paste) It's all this waiting as I fell for the SGSII, now I have to wait for another Nokia as I have ONLY ever used Symbian OS, & I love it. Not a case of SGSII v N9, but Nokia smartphone and a.n.other. I have to wait to have a Nokia touchscreen. I am blown away by what IS included and shocked by the omissions. What you say may prove right Nokia looking to the future, but given that this was a 'one off, I don't see it challenging WP7. People have common sense to wait for the 'supported' OS. 95% daily interest, shows that Nokia still know how to wow, It's just the 'nooooo!' in this case.
