Seemingly Nokia isn’t going to give up with smartphones. At the Nokia Connection event in Singapore Nokia CEO Stephen Elop confirmed that the company’s first MeeGo-based device Nokia N9 will be made available around Q4 2011.
Nokia is hoping that this new phone will be able to attract Samsung, HTC or even Apple’s latest product lovers who value elegance.
Nokia says that N9 will be a high end smartphone, built for those who value class and beauty and, arguably, can be termed as one of the best phones of Nokia till date.
Most calling feature of Nokia N9 is it’s design. The 3.9 inch curved glass AMOLED display fitted in unibody design provides a new experience. Practically there is no gap between the glass and the display giving new life to phone display.
Made from polycarbonate in one-piece, phone has no screws, no edges, seamless design. All you get is just the elegance and smoothness. In addition to the design, polycarbonate helps reducing the weight and results in better signal reception giving user the best out of it.
Another prominent feature of this phone is that you will not find any button on the front side of the phone not even a home button which Apple always loves to add. Here the phone gives you new control experience which is identification mark for this beauty.
‘Swipe’ is the word that is chosen. To visit home screen from an application, swipe the screen from corner and to unlock the device, simply double tap the screen.
The Nokia N9 comes in three colours: black, cyan and magenta and with storage capacities of 16GB and 64GB.
Nokia claims to have 8MP auto focus camera with Carl Zeiss optics, dual LED flash and super wide 28mm lens, which as per Nokia works faster from start to capture than any other manufacturer’s smartphone camera in the market.
HTML5 supported browser with Webkit 2 technology gives better browsing experience. Latest Nokia maps with voice guided navigation puts another feather in N9’s cap.
Downside of the phone is that it is still using MeeGo OS, which may not be very welcoming for the ones who are comparing it with other competitors. Unlike the other Nokia may be lagging on this point considering the application development on this platform.
Also this phones comes with 1GHz single core chip which in no way is going to compete the other giants in the market with Dual Core Processors.
Summing up, if you are looking for the beauty and class, N9 will welcome you with both hands but for those who are more interested in inside than the outer one, you guys really need to wait meanwhile Nokia launches something to compete Apple, Samsung or HTC.
