Pretty weak really considering most of the specs have already been eclipsed by the N8. No microSD slot, no radio, 8mp camera instead of the 12mp in the N8, led flash instead of a xeon flash found in the N8. The screen is nicer and you can do 30fps instead of the 25 with the N8, but there's a hack for that on the N8 that will bring that up to 30fps too. And the processor is better than the N8, but lets face it, samsung and nearly everyone else is now using dual cores starting at 1 or 1.3 ghz, so a single core 1 ghz processor is a bit of a disappointment too! I would say this is NOT the game changer that Elop said it was in a press release. It sounds like a decent phone, but far from cutting edge, and I honestly can't think of a reason to get this phone instead of the many others already out there (from Nokia as well as others). Nokia needs to get in the game and step up to the plate, or pack it in and turn over the keys, because they are failing to impress.
its a good phone but im not so interested in it because the n8 had a 12mp camera and the n9 with a 8mp camera. also the downloading speed is also redused from 21mbps to 14mbps.
N8 still the best of all nokia phones 12MP camera and i dont need the 64 GB internal memory i love my N8 (( if you have N8 dont replace it with N9 )) thats my oppinion
there actually is not slot for an expansion card (no micro-sd slot)
How can the music playback time be 50h when on an ipod Touch 4g does not exceed 40h? did i miss something here?
PROS - Good work on viewty of Nokia smartphone.MEEGO OS.8MP is today's need.1Ghz Cortex processor. Slimmer than N8.
CONS - Not having FM Transmitter.
CONCLUSION - If prices around 25k its worth buying.

"Nokia enters into patent license agreement with Apple
Tuesday, June 14, 2011 · 8:55 am
Nokia announced that it has signed a patent license agreement with Apple. The agreement will result in settlement of all patent litigation between the companies, including the withdrawal by Nokia and Apple of their respective complaints to the US International Trade Commission.
The financial structure of the agreement consists of a one-time payment payable by Apple and on-going royalties to be paid by Apple to Nokia for the term of the agreement. The specific terms of the contract are confidential.
We are very pleased to have Apple join the growing number of Nokia licensees,” said Stephen Elop, president and chief executive officer of Nokia, in the press release. “This settlement demonstrates Nokia’s industry leading patent portfolio and enables us to focus on further licensing opportunities in the mobile communications market.”

Florian Mueller writes for FOSS Patents, “This frees up resources for both Apple and Nokia. Apple is embroiled in litigation with the three leading Android device makers (Motorola, HTC and Samsung). Nokia doesn’t have any litigation worries at the moment, but part of its new strategy is to ratchet up the monetization of its patent portfolio. The fact that Nokia has demonstrated its ability to defeat Apple — after the most bitterly contested patent dispute that this industry has seen to date — is a clear proof of concept. Other companies whom Nokia will ask to pay royalties will have to think very hard whether to pay or pick a fight.”
Mueller writes, “This is also very significant with a view to Android. Given that Android is in many ways a rip-off of Apple’s operating software, Android-based devices are highly likely to infringe on largely the same Nokia patents that Apple now felt forced to pay for.”
“I don’t hold shares in any tech company, but if I were an Apple shareholder, I would probably view this outcome favorably. Nokia emerges victorious, but this is a sweet defeat for Apple because its competitors — especially those building Android-based devices — will also have to pay Nokia, and most if not all of them will likely have to pay more on a per-unit basis because they don’t bring as much intellectual property to the table as Apple definitely did,” Mueller writes. “So from a competitive point of view, I don’t think Apple loses much. On the bottom line its profitability may even benefit from this because Apple’s margins face no greater threat than Android-style commoditization of smartphone technologies.”
YEAH THAT LAST PARAGRAPH!
it's lack 12MP,doul core processer,1080p video recording,21MBPS 3G,and Radio.
This phone is worth the wait for us Nokia die-hards. Other people can criticise Nokia but now I can say Nokia has woken up. Please release this phone as fast as possible. We are eagerly waiting.
In today's world. Why buy a smartphone which does not have iOS or Android. It is a waste.
renor, 21 Jun 2011it does have a secondary camera, but its located at the bottom of the screen. and i dont know why.I think that video calls are in landscape so shifts to top right hand corner
this is just another version of the iphone, although nokia is the most user friendly phone in the world, you cannot get confused when using a nokia, from the earliest models right to the latest...i am currently an iphone user but i say bravo to nokia and the n9
What's the point? MeeGo is going out the window, replaced by Windows Phone soon.. Not worth it. Phone looks nice, but might as well wait.
zahin143, 21 Jun 2011I hope N9 will be a good phone as N900........n9 is grt h/set comparing all nokia phone....
Nothing to say about N9.
N95 still the best. A-GPS is not a solution in Brazil.
Zhane, 21 Jun 2011this will only ship at the end of the quarter or maybe next year to not disturb the production... moreNo. That is just what u think. N9 might release in a month times. And nokia promise to have at least 15 phones release this year. And how many had u seen?
This phone has the potential to disrupt the mobile world. But that can be fulfilled only when there are sufficient apps to work with. Nokia, pls ensure that all android apps work with this device and you have it made. Tie up with Dalvik and get the 100000+ android apps running seamlessly and i will purchase not one but two of these.
