Jolla Mobile will not support N9 directly for the same reason as IBM does not support Sony products. NUT Jolla's OS Sailfish is developed on Linux MeeGo base. Linux Maemo + Linux Mobilin = Linux MeeGo (Harmattan on N9) => then => Merproject.org -> Mer core distribution (Mer = MEego Reconstructed) -> Nemo project (Linux MeeGo CE Community Edition) which can replace Harmattan on N9 => then => Sailfish OS. This makes Sailfish contains more or less 60-80% of original which was developed and polished whittin the Merproject with contribution from Jolla. In effect it can happen that a soft for Sailfish can be launched and run on N9 IF it does not use elements added with Sailfish (mainly interface layer UI and upper) as core and kernel can be quite compatible to certain extent limited by above mentioned history.
It also can happen that community can publish update(s) which will patch differences - who knows?
Salfish and Harmattan (N9 MeeGo) use QT both, which makes porting soft both directions quite possible, however not easy, and of course there will be a question of economy. Open source by community will be "easier" to port then commercial software. But criticl mass of users and devs interested in MeeGo/Mer/Sailfish has been reached already a time ago and chain reaction in communities has bee initiated. Now we are awaiting effects and surprises. Seems Sailfish will be able to run software from MeeGo Harmattan (backward compatibility) and Android (via ASL or similar solution), and will have wide offer of own software - so there will be full software library available for users, developers and coders. With my first phone by Jolla with OS Sailfish I will sent greetings to Mr Elop and congrats for his awesome effects.
My deepest believe is that OS Sailfish is significantly more developed continuation of MeeGo Harmattan form Nokia N9 and best option for those who love N9 standard and want to have N9 successor, which I believe Jolla smartphone will be.
NOTE WELL: 21 and 22 is live stream form the first worldwide presentation of OS Sailfish at Helsinki! Look for link here at this page, under the Slush event: http://slush.fi/en/speakers/ announced earlier eg. here http://techcrunch.com/2012/10/04/jolla-confirms-it-will-unveil-sailfish-meego-based-os-next-month/ So MeeGo is still among us and quite alive. Who cares for Elop's burning platform while we have dinghy boat (Jolla means dinghy in Finnish)? Look for Jolla or follow Jolla Mobile Twitter!

Navigate to where the file is, hold press on it, then press Share, then Bluetooth. This works with pretty much any file you like, music or no.

Those who are thinking that Jolla will support N9 must read this article.
only hoping for the best of N9 owners and users because JM's statement before says not throwing our beautybeast N9 we have to keep it for the next few years, think they will continue to support it. cheers.
TimmyTee, 15 Nov 2012Will Sailfish run on N9? Would be great if Jolla will distribute to current N9 owners!I think Jolla said they couldn't provide software for the N9. However, the stuff Jolla adds with Sailfish will probably end up in Mer/Nemo, and the N9 can run Nemo (it's very early and buggy right now though).

Just got a new Nokia N9 Ovi Music Unlimited Black 16gb, must say it is amazing. Wanted to buy white 64gb version but too hard to find anymore. Might get one more N9 next month before stocks run out.

cozmo, 13 Nov 2012am trying to down load the latest version of whats up but keep getting the same message wrong ... moreIf you still can't get it to save instead of run the file, try downloading it using another browser (Opera Labs and Firefox both work fine). Then just find where it saved the .deb with a file manager, like Filebox, and run it from there.
elr, 14 Nov 2012why my nokia n9 have not wifi? May be you dont have the original Nokia N9...
cozmo, 13 Nov 2012am trying to down load the latest version of whats up but keep getting the same message wrong ... moreGo to Wazapp.im download it and install it. If you are trying to install the Whatsapp official client then I am afraid that you cant do this because there is no official client for N9 is available. Wazapp is an unofficial client of Whatsapp for N9....
