N9 with Harmattan is really nice, but Ilmatar (version following Harmattan) device protos were even nicer with Intel chips. Too bad the public will never experience the UI of Ilmatar. Instead, we have Windows Phone.
TC: If you touch thru your pants, something could react, but it won't be your N9 since it's got a proximity sensor.
You are in the shadow of a lot of smartphones. Keep moving... The Nokia lost the contest...,for now
hawk, 25 Jun 2011To all the fanboys hailing this as the future of Nokia you need to accept that MeeGo is dead, ... morewe all know that. but Elop said Qt will live on other S40 platform. qt is the ecosystem of N9. so it is not dead.
who of you are evr gonna use 64gb memory? are you stupid complaining about mc slot
They should release this the soonest time possible strike while the iron is hot.

He... moreYeah, I'm aware it uses qt, so the S^3 qt apps are likely to work with little to no optimization anyways. I'm not really worried about that, more about official support like software updates.
I don't personally really use apps for anything on my N8, don't expect that to change on my future phones either.

He pointed to them continuing with the ideas n interface of the n9. The are very probably working on a new platform. A succesor to the n9 with similar ui but running neither meego nor wp.
It really shouldn't matter to a potential n9 buyer whether or not nokia plans to mainstrean its os. It supports qt so it won't get any less apps than it would otherwise plus theres the developer community.
wish it next update to run flash player 10.2 and get 1080 p 30f plus yahoo&hotmail massengers beside the skype and gmail and all to be able to run video chat through the front cam
This is the first decent phone Nokia made in years....too bad it looks like an iPod :)

Micro SD card gives you more disvantages than advantages. The first and most important: speed.
Hmmm the colours are qite unusual. I qite like the blue colours but is that too femnine looking for a guy? I mean, the black is OK but it makes the phone look so dull =P

You are onto a good thing so the big chief (Elop)comes in a axes it "as such"..Why dont we all go out and chuck some money down the drain,damage out tv,s and buy a 14 inch portable ,smash up our ovens and buy a wood stove,bulldoze our houses and erect a tent,,sounds crazy doesnt it?? SO are this overpaid bigwigs..

Understandable, seeing that he fired the entire staff behind Meego :D
Can't wait for Nokia to start shipping this. I'm definitely getting the 64 Gb N9.

this device is a test mouse which its fate depend on customers. if meego is a success, Nokia will not fool enough to stop this. more apps will come, a new meego market will build.
so it is you that decide Nokia meego Destiny. :)
