Three month review:
Battery life: 2+ days on average. If streaming, 1 day.
WiFi: Excellent connectivity, home, coffee shop, etc. Connected to at least 20 hotspots with no problem. Browsing with Firefox or Opera very fast!
Swipe: absolutely the best UI out there. So nice to open/close apps, etc.
NAV: Awesome, to me, best part of owning a Nokia phone, no data xcn needed.
Build: solid, feels like a panzer. Gorilla glass strong.
Radio: better than my 5800. Holds cell cxn in known TMo deadspot where 5800 would drop.
Speed: fast UI, no lag.
Charging flap: took a while to get used to opening it.
Apps: Top 10-20 are fine, just not 10,000. But I'm not an apps guy.
Speakerphone: could be better.
Voice-dialing: Biggest weakness, no clean solution, miss this from Symbian.
Voice-to-text: use Google v2t, then cut and paste, needs better solution.
Overall: very happy with this phone, Meego is beautiful OS/UI. Bought for $325 from Ebay, using with $50/mo no-contract TMo. Very cost effective smart phone solution. Wish Jolla would provide updates for a fee.

Im using this phone now, very slow, buttons are flimsy and cheap feeling, charging flap is annoying as hell and breaks. WiFi hotspot doesn't support infrastructure mode so its useless and doesn't work with majority of devices. Doesn't work with some types of headphones, like apple ear pods. Front camera has horrid resolution and requires 3rd party apps to use, not even the built in Skype app can do video calling. Not sure if its my phone alone but to get through a day of very light use I'll have to charge it at least once (went from 100% to 85% in 15 mins with no open apps and the phone was locked and WiFi disabled) non replaceable battery, need to remove screen just to remove the battery.
ubuntumeego , 30 Oct 2012sorry man:-):) i dont have recipt of ma cell.:-):)but thing i knw dat ma dad wen 2 batuta mall... moreActually I want black n9 in 16gb,the reason behind is that I think that's enough for me and also little cheap than 64gb and 16gb black version comes later than firsts versions so maybe its newer than first ones(i think)
I asked them same and they said it's available but made in china which is ok for me. I used n73 china made from 2008 to 2011 and still have and its working very fine.
Lets see what happen which one comes.
And Thanks for reply.

Thats nonsense, signal can never degrade except the battery.. Thats the most st..p.d things i ever read.. I dont know yoir agenda but you are misleading people by saying that n9 signal degrading and then suggesting an android phone, now thats the worst.. Clearly you are android fanboy and trying to spread gossip aboit n9, is your android phone not ggod enough thats why youre telling lies to people so that they will support your nonsense android
Rude boy, 28 Oct 2012finally i got my dream phone, the beast N9 this is my happiest day, l cant believe it,i love n9Welcome to the N9 club lol. I felt the same when I got my N9 some months ago. Good phone. Enjoy it, you're walking with one of the best looking phones currently available!
ubuntumeego, 29 Oct 2012ok.tel ur dad while buying this phone....try to buy wic hav pr1.3.because mine is vietnum vers... moreeven i bought mine from dubai, with initially pr.1.1 and later i got pr 1.2/1.3 in india, I dont think region is the issue for not getting OTA update, but its the varient (locked/unlocked) version one has to look upon, still u always can update with navifirm
Secondly, if you want android, why buy n9? try samsung or HTC
