The first thing to understand about this phone is that there are no front buttons. The Nokia N9 is so intuitive that a swipe or gesture on the curved 3.9 inch AMOLED display is all you need to navigate through the MeeGo OS. To leave an app and go back to the home screen, the user swipes from the edge of the screen. The phone itself is constructed in a one-piece unibody design with the body made from polycarbonate material to improve antenna reception. Under the hood is a TI OMAP3630 1GHz CPU matched as usual with the PowerVRSGX530 GPU, Nokia's first.
The web browser on the handset is powered by WebKit 2 which means you can access a site even while it is still loading. Switching between open windows on the browser is quick and easy and support for HTML5 allows you to see rich web applications and offers fast video playback, but there is no desktop Adobe Flash support for now from what we are seeing.
On the back of the phone is an 8MP camera featuring Carl Zeiss optics with a super wide 28mm wide lens. The camera on the model is faster than the shooter on any other smartphone says Nokia, and captures video at 720p at 30 fps. Touch-to-focus and continuous aurofocus come standard, too.
The newest Nokia Maps edition is on board to give you free turn by turn directions for walking and driving, without the need to be connected ot the Internet. Also, in 85 major cities, the Nokia N9 will tell you the fastest way to arrive at a location using public transportation. Along the route, there are markings for cafes, hotels, shops and more.
The Nokia N9 is NFC enabled and offers Dolby Headphone and Dolby Digital Plus which makes it the first mobile phone to offer personal surroundsound through headphones. The UI arranges three home views in a carousel. One is an app to launch and organize your apps. The second shows your social feeds and notifications for calls, texts and calendar events. The third view shows all off your live apps and apps that you have recently used. Pinch and zoom to show either 4 or 9 live apps at a time.
The Nokia N9 will be available in three colors, black, cyan and magenta. 16GB and 64GB models will be available. Pricing, carrier availability and a launch date have not been announced, but rumors are that it will be available in about a month from now. Has Nokia completed a long Hail Mary pass? Certainly the no button look has a definite sexiness to it. What do you think? Is this a phone that you would consider buying? Let us know your thoughts by writing in the comment box below.
I have N8 'm using its good mobile and official mobile
i have also Iphone 4G. both are better but i dont know about N9. i think it is good mobile both of N8 and Iphone 4G
i will buy and i will check
heyy guyz tell me MeeGo OS, v1.2 Harmattan Os vs Android 3.0 honeycomb . which Os is more best.
will not be available in india.There is no official word but the
company’s European website doesn’t feature India in the list of 23 countries
where Nokia will inform customers about
the availability of N9 ahead of its launch. The alleged limited availability fits well with predictions of
Eldar Murtazin, a Russian blogger, who wrote on his
website that Nokia would make only 92,000 units of N9. According to Murtazin, who in the past had uncannily
announced Nokia-related news — including Nokia- Microsoft deal — in advance, N9 is not aimed at bringing any riches to the Finnish phone maker. Instead, it is just
supposed to make some news to keep Nokia relevant

its the best phone ever made by nokia.i love this phone.looks r fabulous.nokia should have put 12 MP camera in it with xenon flash.hope that meego will save nokia.1 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM is an excellent combination.will surely buy it if got enough money.
New Nokia N9 is Good but what about Nokia N8 the people who have experienced will they purchase this one or if yes than what about the market value of Nokia N8 after the launch of Nokia N9???
Umm, the specifications need to be updated, the N9 is reported to indeed have Clear Black Display (CBD) by a few other sites who previewed it, so please add CBD to the screen specs!
As an android user like my self, what are you all needing a Dual-core for? Do we all need that yet?
I just got a single-core 1ghz android and it runs all high-end android apps that are not niche.
Not everyone needs "storage consuming" 1080p video that is useless unless you view it on an 42inch+ TV.
I do think dual-core is the future but is still too early for now. Kind of reminds me when AMD first relesed consumer 64-bit processors that were too early with little to no software support.
Next year we will most likely see more dualcores :)
Nokia sux 2 d core without dual core it's nowhere near android and ios and... about meego i can juz tell is u go..thumbs down nokia... better start making handsets wit android

indeed gread handset. i love to experience that.
but it does,t hav card slot
Right now I'm nokia user (5800XM). And i don't have the patience to wait 2 more weeks to buy a new phone ... wich will be HTC Sensation. I read the opinions here and at the Sensation page, and i don't get it. All the people love N9 wich i don't think is the most beautiful phone, i don't think that meego is the better OS. I have never saw the desktop of the N9 but I'm sure it's not going to be like the experience of HTC Sense 3.0. The other day i tried to setup my nokia messaging without a success. I spend 1 hour of trying , and the end it tells me that i don't know my password, this is ridiculous ! Not even the nokia support was able to help me. So i'm very disappointed of nokia these days. And I can't explain it to my self what is the thing that you love about that phone ? Nokia are far behind ...
