Nokia decided they did not want to want to enter the already crowded android laden phone market they were left with 2 choices they had to go with either MeeGo or windows 7 OS and they decided to give both a try.
The Nokia N9 is a Adonis among phones.It is one of the classiest phones to come out of the Nokia stable.The phone’s body is made of polycarbonate monolith.Its thickness is 12.1mm and weighs 135 g .The N9 comes in three colours black,cyan and magenta.The camera at the rear of the device is a 8mp snap shooter with dual LED flash.The side is home to a volume rocker and a lock/power key.A 3.g mm jack is also present.The N9 does not have a separate micro SD card and the inbuilt storage ranges from 16GB to 64GB.
The screen present in the N9 is a 3.9 inch FWVGA AMOLED display and its super awesome to say the least.The display is protected by a gorilla glass. Ambient light sensor is present at the top.
Performance and battery
The Nokia N9 is powered by a 1GHz Cortex A8 CPU with a PowerVR SGX530 GPU with 1GB of RAM .The Phone packs quite a punch.For the specs mentioned the battery needs to be good and the device stands up to the task .
The 8MP Carl Zeiss dual LED flash snaps photos wonderfully but the low light condition problem is visible sometimes.The photo editor function provided is great to work with.The N9 shoots videos in 720P.The videos are also pretty good.The N9’s usp is certainly not the camera but the camera will not deter you from buying this phone.
The talking point of the N9 is the MeeGo Harmattan.The Meego is a linux based OS is classy and really good to use. It is The support for this product which remains a question mark.Without support the OS is as good as a dead duck.
We just wish the Nokia N9’s classy hardware, brilliant display were used with a not so dead OS.Though the software is fabulous the lack of support might be a deal breaker.
