Nokia has just proudly presented the Nokia N9 smartphone. The specs look quite well (you’ll be able to judge that by yourself), the phone is a good-looking one but there is still one question left: why shouldn’t we buy it? There is only one simple answer: it runs MeeGo, that’s why it is also called N9 MeeGo. Are you disappointed? Everybody else is for sure, because we were all looking for some Mango inside.
What do I like about this smartphone? Firstly, the scratch-resistant curved glass, secondly there are no buttons on the face of the phone. That is why Nokia is selling it as a “pure touch screen” and it is right. The 3.9-inch AMOLED display has a 854 by 480 pixels resolution. Moreover, the smartphone also has an 8-megapixel camera on board and NFC capabilities. A surprise would be the polycarbonate used in the body of N9. Nokia claims that this feature will help with reception issues. But does it matter?
Nokia realized not a long time ago that it is way too expensive for it to continue financing Symbian and MeeGo so it took a very smart decision. Nokia and Microsoft became partners and the Finnish producer announced that its smartphones will run on Windows 7 and that it is not giving up on Symbian. Nokia N8s, E7s, C7s and C6-01s will be shipped with the new Symbian Anna in July. Meanwhile, everybody’s waiting for Windows 7 Nokia smartphones.
Despite the nice hardware, who wants to buy the N9 now?
