anonymouse, 17 Oct 2011no FM radio is ok; but battery non replaceable?? what is Nokia is thinking these days? N8? No ... morePoor camera( are u kidding me),no fm radio,must be talking about iphone.
On a serious note,non of them are a dealbraker.iphone never had a good camera,photo editor,video editor,free gps,facebook integration and many more.Was it a deal braker.no.because people liked its ease of use.N9 simplifies iphone's ease odf use as well.Hence its UI is perfect example of a fluid smartphone UI.Deal done.right.

The review itself is well written and describes most n9 features. While I'm fairly pleased with that, I would like to have read some things regarding battery life among others, which I haven't.
You clearly mention it is a 3.0 BT device, unlike what's written in the full specifications. I think it would be nice of you to correct it because there is a lot of people who only check the specification page and thus get the wrong specs.
Thank you for your time.
this a great phone but what it lacks is a proper os and i dont mean android..wp7 would feel very good on this device like than nokia 800 but the thing is can nokia engineers pull it off??i mean nokia used to have gread hardware but their software was the worst..if u are a ios or a wp7 user im sure u would kill urself if u were forced to use a symbian...hope they can do etter with wp7 devices
I chose N9 over SGS II even though it cost significantly more. I'm still very happy with my choice :)
Here is one more plus for N9 and MeeGo: It is most likely the only top of the line smartphone where you still have decent privacy. I really hate to think what kind of database Google is accumulating from its users.
I'd like to see some quote where Nokia is saying that theyre ditching meego. Afaik this whole buzz is based on ELop's comment in HS where he says: "Even if N9 is success Nokia wont change smartphine strategy. WP will stay main smart phone platform". Or something like that. I ahvent heard anywhere them saying "there won be any more meego phone", yet every one's saying Nokia wont deliver more mego phones.
For those who are complaingin about price. It's design phone so it costs more than basic phones naturally and its by far the best phone ive used so far (including sgs2 & IP4). After using this phone just couple days i felt like i got suddenly severe brain damage and using other OS's seems to be riciculously complicated.
AnonD-22666, 16 Oct 2011How much does this phone cost In uk?!!!theres no denying thtat this a stunner!!!It won't be officially available in the UK, we get the WP Sea Ray instead. You should se tgem on ebay soon though.
Bravo for Nokia!
Finally FAST UI and usable!
But... MeGo is dead (why Nokia?) and N9 have still bad benchmarks for 3D games VS competitions... because, old GPU and single core...
(3GS have faster GPU, 2 years ago)
Not everyone wants a smartphone dumbed down for a 2-year-old. They get rid of physical buttons, get rid of numerous customization options, adopt Apple-like flat organization structure and retarded micro-SIM, a pentile screen, and gsmarena raves about it? Even the included earphones are cheap, just like the fruit phone's. I'll keep my N8, and you can go rave about "magical button-less simplicity" to someone looking for a toy instead of a smartphone.
