Is it possible for the N8 to operated by Meego? Why there's no Meego logo on N9 unlike all Android phones are recognizable with the Android Logo. Are u sure its not Symbian? & what is Harmattam? Can someone published more videos on youtube, because most of the videos are focusing only with N9s 3 home screens.
Bing Google, 26 Jun 2011So you're saying buy a 64Gb version if I am unsure 16Gb is sufficient. Nonsense, Nokia almost... moreYes,i agree it COULD have been a really knock your socks off Premium Phone..but Nokia had no intention of doing so, seeing W7 is their preferred Premium OS. The N9 was so close reaching Top Marks, but i suspect Nokia may have dumbed it down a bit , so as not to detract from their W7 . Which is a crying shame really, as they were so close to making a killing. Even , the N9 is still a hummer, and i will get one for sure..
Paul Troy, 26 Jun 2011Firstly, its not meant to be a Flagship device.. It has Radio Chip in hardware, and could be... moreSo you're saying buy a 64Gb version if I am unsure 16Gb is sufficient. Nonsense, Nokia almost always has expansion! This COULD have been one of Nokias premium phones ever! despite the 'one off' Meego had they stuck to the script. It incorporates features more akin to IP than Nokia and we wait to see if the battery is user replaceable in a phone that is not worried about dimensions, and no flash lite? It hurts me to hate this phone more than I love it how can you get so close to perfection then throw it away. Imagine just imagine this phone with an sd slot, flash lite. All the innovation that has gone into this, CBD etc. I really wish I could ask Stephen Elop to explain. Yeah so 64Gb, also @ work NOT! allowed usb phone connection, but increasingly 'administrator' privileges needed for smartphone.

Battery might be like on N8, not removable by the customer without voiding warranty (N8 battery can be removed by removing two screws). Normal user has no need to remove battery, though.
The OS itself isnt very much different from others, just that the unlocking and all movement is done by certain finger movements instead of using hardware buttons.
This has no buttons? Meaning there is no home screen dedicated for the OS like HTC Sense or Samsung TouchWiz? Also the design is very nice however i couldnt see any way to reach the battery?

[deleted post]Actually there are quite a few Samsung fans that all day long vote other phones down and give 10-10-10 to their favorite samsung phones.
It is quite obvious when you see a new phone come out and it gets on the top ten list. Next day is has suddenly gotten a huge hit of minus votes.
You can't cheat the interest counters though ;)
AnonD-7829, 25 Jun 2011Yeah, I'm aware it uses qt, so the S^3 qt apps are likely to work with little to no optimizati... moreThats a non issue. Nokia never abandons their phones. The important updates always get delivered. Besides, like i said, there is the developerr community.
I was reading an article this morning. The n9 doesn't run meego, it runs harmatttan. Harmattan is nokias own project.
check out this video it gives full features of nokia n9 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A88K-Hm_bQw
The N9 looks perfect its design is amazing the software looks very promising, actually every smart touch phone released is compared to the iphone this the only phone that i felt beating the iphone at all aspects :D, but i wished if the battery is switchable and to have FM radio and transmitter included in the N9 :(.
nokia is back.! innovations are there.! i love it. no micro sd slot? well i dont care.! it has plenty of storage.. amazing screen, sleek design, no hardware buttons, the real touch phone.!
Toss, 26 Jun 2011After reading most of d comments wat i've observed is all nokia fans who wants 2 buy dis phone... moreBuying a phone is always a compromise. Galaxy S 2 is a compromise as well. On the Android / MeeGo factor alone, there are lots of reasons why I would rather choose MeeGo.
Comparing to N9 (personal opinions BTW):
-You can't install real Linux software
-the interface doesn't look half as beautiful
-The multitasking isn't as good
-I'm willing to bet the camera isn't of the same quality
-the external design is lot more dull
-you can't get as big internal memory
-Galaxy S 2 is harder to root and no official support, You can "root" N9 by going to settings and selecting development mode
-only some markets get NFC and there doesn't seem to be much official support for it
-The N9 has a better screen (beautiful curve, CBD, better resolution)
-Samsung build quality doesn't match Nokia
-MeeGo is truly open source, comparing to the "half" open source of Android
