Nokia N9 is the latest smartphone in the Nokia NSeries of fun and entertainment smartphones. The Nokia N9 is so beautifully designed that it impresses even the loudest Nokia critics. Nokia N9 runs MeeGo OS and will be available in 16GB and 64GB models and would offer an 8 megapixel camera with autofocus and HD video, NFC, Wi-Fi, and Hotspot features.
a great design
The Nokia N9 looks awesome. It is a full touch phone with no front facing navigation button. Instead, the Nokia N9 will use simple touch gestures, a swipe of a finger, for navigation. For example, a swipe from the edge of the screen will return you from any application to the homescreen. To reveal the Quick lunch bar, swipe up from the bottom of the screen and hold briefly. Similarly, double-tapping the screen will unlock the phone.
Nokia N9 features a precision-crafted unibody design from a single piece of polycarbonate, which joins seamlessly with the polarised glass above the AMOLED display. The curved polarised glass and the AMOLED forms a deep black display that makes the interface appear to the floating on the surface of the product, giving a very great experience.
Nokia N9 is one of the most powerful Nokia phones yet, going by its specs. It features a 1GHz ARM Cortex 8 processor with a separate 2D/3D graphic accelerator and 1GB RAM, which offers a fast experience. Nokia N9 also features a fast browser.
Unlike its predecessor, the Nokia N8 which features the Symbian^3 OS, the Nokia N9 comes with MeeGo OS, a Linux based operating system, which was actually seen as the future for Nokia highend phones until Nokia made a u-turn towards the Microsoft Windows Phone OS instead.
The Nokia N9 features three home views for organising and accessing applications, getting notifications and social-network updates, and the third one showcases your open apps with most recently used on top, making it easy to switch between apps. According to Nokia this is probably the best multi-tasking design in the market today.
Nokia N9 features a 3.9-inch AMOLED display with a polarised glass with beautifully curved edges on top. The display and the glass form a deep black display that makes the view to appear as if it is floating on the surface of the glass.
