Hands-on with the Nokia N9 MeeGo device

Hands-on with the Nokia N9 MeeGo device

Summary: Nokia's first, and likely last, MeeGo powered device is now shipping outside the United States to select countries. The hardware is beautiful and the OS is powerful, but there may be very few people that get to experience such a good device.

  • Here you can see the N9 inside the included skin case. It has opening for all ports and the camera.

  • The Nokia N9 fits well in my hand, even when inside the skin case.

  • The main interface on the N9 is the application launcher. You can tap and hold to move shortcuts around the display, but there is no option for creating folders.

  • RE: Hands-on with the Nokia N9 MeeGo device

    Thanks for info on NOKIA9. Even though I am an Apple fan I love the nokia phones, the are durable. I have an E71 and it is still going strong, only the back cover keeps falling off so I have to brace it with a rubber band; I am definitely going to check it out, I live in the Netherlands Antilles, soi believe I will be able to purchase it at the Class Electronic Shop. I got the SAMSUNG GT-B7510L, I call it the Samsung "blackberry",lol, it is a great phone but I'm not in love with it; so I am definitely going to put Nokia9 MeeGo on my wish list, thanks for the heads up.
