Nokia Launches N9 in Pakistan

N9 Blue - LifestyleNokia yesterday hosted an exclusive preview of the Nokia N9 to mark official launch of Nokia N9 in Pakistan. The event was held at a local hotel and gathered top-notch technology enthusiasts from across Pakistan.

The Nokia N9 introduces an innovative new design where the home key is replaced by a simple gesture: a swipe. Whenever you’re in an application, swiping from the edge of the display takes you home.

The three home views of the user interface are designed to give fast access to the most important things people do with a phone: using apps, staying up to date with notifications and social networks, and switching between activities.

The industrial design of the Nokia N9 is an example of extreme product making and craft. The body is precision-machined from a single piece of polycarbonate and flows seamlessly into beautiful curved glass. The laminated deep black display means that the user interface just floats on the surface of the product.

“With the Nokia N9, we wanted to design a better way to use a phone. To do this we innovated in the design of the hardware and software together. We reinvented the home key with a simple gesture: a swipe from the edge of the screen. The experience sets a new bar for how natural technology can feel,” said Henri Mattila, Solution Marketing Manager, Middle East & Africa (MEA), Nokia. “And this is just the beginning. The details that make the Nokia N9 unique – the industrial design, the all-screen user experience, and the expressive Qt framework for developers – will evolve in future Nokia products.”

  • I wish Nokia had Android.

    • MeeGo is better than android. new ui. everything is new. even now symbian is totally comparable to android.

      • asif

        +1 i am Nokia N9 user (imported CYAN) color from Malaysia month ago because ONLY black was avilable in local market at that time.

        Love the BODY, FEEL and Specially surprising OS. Android is simply SH*T OS. Android is for OLD AGE people still addicted to WINDOWS XP. Poor layout, poor icons, feels like living in old age.

        Windows Phone 7.5 is truly most stylish, Fast, BUG FREE OS.. but surprisingly Nokia N9 (meego) beated Windows Phone interms of Speed, Camera Performance, FACEBOOK App, Mail Client, and THREADED SMS App. + lots of Apps in OVI store for MEEGO already their including mainstream commercial apps.

        I will recommend N9 over Lumia 800. Wait for Lumia 900 that will have Bigger screen.

    karo gay kya n9 say

  • kamal ashraf

    i will buy nokia, if nokia start to make android powered mobiles

    • then Nokia is not for you as Nokia will never use Android in their smartphones.

  • Seems to be a great phone, the next phone what i would be buying is going to be this one….

  • Faizan Elahi

    Nokia is desperate to gain back its market share, which I don’t think will happen.

    • sure it will happen. Nokia is gaining popularity again.

  • Wateem

    If I had to spend 52000 on a phone i’d wisely go buy an Iphone 4 which is better, i believe 1000 times, than nokia.

    And secondly its Nokia wait two months and the same phone can be easily bought for Rs 30,000 or less if you want even more.

    so don’t spend your hard earned money on phones like nokia.

    • many tech websites are dumping their iphone for Lumia 800 and for N9. N9 is far way better than Iphone. its open source. im a n900 user and love it. Maemo community is still releasing updates for it and its getting better day by day. and Now it even can play and record 720p HD videos at 30fps. Iphone is nothing. it only has just many useless apps which all of them are not even necessary.

      • Asadum

        Nop dude you are wrong even if you are siding n9 then you should know that Nokia itself is dumping both maemo/meego and symbian in favor for Windows Phone 7 and as for iPhone i don’t like it myself but the Eco-System that iDevices provide is far more superior than any other Mobile Eco-System and even WP7 and Android are trying to follow the Same thing which iDevices are Doing and by the way i am a Samsung Fan and would recommend Galaxy S II or Galaxy Nexus as they are a Hit-To-Get devices but again First iPhone then Galaxy(s) and then WP7 :)

  • iTechGiz

    The event was great, just surprised with the gift of business card Nokia 8GB usb :)

  • Raheem

    dude very nice I love nokia MEEGO is better then symbian android and also from iphone live nokia ummah

  • rameez

    nokia isnt dying slow death it is already dead. just speaking some last words as we see that in bollywood movies when hero is bout to die.
    bye bye nokia
    apple, blackberry and htc(kind of) are ruling now
    and i would really like to mention that sony ericsson is a wayyyyyy better then nokia

  • Amir Ali

    Intel teaming up with Nokia and using Linux as basis of Meego was a big news 2 years back. And now we know in near future our N9 and other MeeGo devices will be able to communicate with each other. So N9 will become a master remote for all the electronic gadgets in the house. Iphone is not open source and Android is an evolutionary OS . But MeeGo has been built from scratch so its reliability and security is higher than android and even better than Iphone. And the strength is MeeGo not Nokia only. And soon all mobile phone manufacturers will turn towards Meego.

    • Asadum

      Wrong and i think you should Google some thing about android powered devices and then you will truely know the Power of Open source and also The World’s most Known Brand and Tech giant Google who powers up android and by the way the Partnership b/w nokia and Intel is no more and instead Intel has Partnered up with Samsung for the re-birth of Meego as Tizen lols…… here check it out (http://www.engadget.com/2011/09/28/meego-to-be-folded-into-linux-based-tizen-os-slated-to-arrive-i/)

    I think YOU are sleeping. Nokia’s WP7 powered Lumia 800 is already a best-seller in several countries. And btw RIM is suffering heavy losses due to the playbook and is dying. Nokia is gaining popularity and HTC is the best-selling cell phone brand in USA and you are saying sort of?
