I'm somewhat attracted by both the Meego as well as the upcoming Windows Phones, but I know at least the Windows phone will lack attributes that I'm not willing to give up from the N8 - for example the possibility to use N8 as mass memory without needing a software installed on the computer.
I really like the looks and feel of Meego, but I think it's a bit stupid to buy a phone that has absolutely no future. Then again, Symbian^3 is mostly the same, but at least they have some amount of staff for it and it'll keep going on the cheaper end phones, so some support will be there.
And as a last reason, my N8 is only a year old by the time those come out and it works perfectly with no flaws and I'm perfectly happy with it. I hope that in a year the Windows phones develop many of the good features of Symbian (currently WP reminds me of iOS, very much locked down unlike Symbian).
What a shame. Nokia are at least 12 months out regards specs here with an OS that has in effect been obsoleted. What a waste of resources when they need all they have to get back in the game!
The guys, who don't like this device, then what r u doing here?
Go to your SGS2 forum or Iphone 4 forum. If you don't like the device, then stay away from here. Don't spoil the forum, by posting unecessary comments.
To all the fanboys hailing this as the future of Nokia you need to accept that MeeGo is dead, even though it seems like a good OS it is dead, Nokia has committed to WP7 and here is something - http://www.engadget.com/2011/06/25/nokias-stephen-elop-is-still-over-meego-even-if-the-n9-is-a-hi/
Are you sure it is magenta not fluorescent red? No radio no micro sd card, what else are not present in this Nokia N9?

What if I want to focus on one thing, but lock exposure one something else? Or point the cam... moreNice thoughts glad to discuss those with ya.
Buy a professional camera if you are that deep in photography although there's much hope independent Camera Apps will be available and using the volume rocker is a possibility in those (and maybe it'll be added to Meego in the next update.
You can swipe back by mistake but it'll be a half swipe meaning you'll see one row of icons no more and you'll be back no problem the big ram and great processor won't flinch.
as for your next q you clearly are new to programming , so i'll quote this from Sympian
There is a strong emphasis on conserving resources which is exemplified by Symbian-specific programming idioms like descriptors and a cleanup stack. Similar methods exist to conserve disk space, though disks on Symbian devices are usually flash memory. Further, all Symbian programming is event-based, and the central processing unit (CPU) is switched into a low power mode when applications are not directly dealing with an event. This is done via a programming idiom called active objects. Similarly the Symbian approach to threads and processes is driven by reducing overheads.
you need 2 steps to unlock (two clicks on the screen then a full swipe to open that'll never happen in your pocket since this is a capacitive which doesn't respond to materials other than your hands
It has gorrila glass so your safe and a body made of poly carbonate that has no paint so even if you scratched it it'll show the same color underneath .
HW buttons removal is awesome ...
and i agree with you about language support i really want this one in Arabic i hope they deliver ...
AnonD-1782, 25 Jun 2011I believe this is going to be a good phoneI didn't said that it will be a weak phone. I said that it's not better than the Samsung Galaxy S2.
AnonD-2519, 25 Jun 2011Are you kidding no card slot,no 1080p,no dual core, no gyro sensor, avg gpu and no divx xvid s... moreit doesn't need card slot coz it has 64 gb on board. www.developer.nokia.com/Devices/Device_specifications/N9/
it supports divx , xvid, flac, mpeg4, flash, avi and more.i think openness of meego can bring more formats coz it is a debian running on a shell. so most of the linux apps will work. there are many things that is hidden in this phone like fm transmitter.
i like the way gsmarena controls most of the posts here. i think we can learn something from it. no more trolls. just share what you think.
fortunately N9 supports Tv out . Fm transmitter , but not yet a software for it.
