Nokia N9- Design

The Nokia N9 has a gorgeous design along with the divine simplicity of the all-screen experience. The 12mm thick Nokia N9 supports a 3.9: Gorilla glass AMOLED display.The bright colors may get the attention of the younger generation. but rest assured , you have a pure black version too.

MeeGo – The way to Go

This no-button OS on the Nokia N9 is a pleasure to use. The only button necessary is the lock button (though Nokia N9 has a volume rocker too).Double tapping on the screen followed by a simple swipe of the screen (any direction) unlock the phone and directly takes you to the apps (like the iOS).

There are lot more features that the MeeGO adds to Nokia N9 that make the device worth its cost. As said earlier, Nokia doesn’t seem that very interested with the Nokia N9 as they want our attention in the Windows Mobile side, but nevertheless, such powerful simplicity will not be let down by customers.More on the Nokia N9 and MeeGo when we get the Hands-on on the device.
