After a few hours with the N9 in my hands, I was even more convinced (as if that was possible) of why Nokia had to make the decision to go with Windows Phone as its main Operating System. Despite the sheer joy of discovering a new OS, using and...

For the past two days, I have had one of the most elite and exclusively available smartphones in my hands: the Nokia N9. Prior to trialling this unit, I was what you can call an N9-virgin: I knew it had something called Swipe, I knew there was a...

In a world of metal and plastic smartphones, the polycarbonate unibody of the Nokia N9 is like a fashion model among marathon runners. Yes, they’re all pretty slim, but only one is going to turn heads based on looks alone.That’s shallow, but...

The N9 is a great phone. Even with a dead on launch hanging over its head, I would still rate its design, usability and functionality very highly. With such excellent hardware, a lot can be expected from future Nokia offerings. The biggest downer,...

Summing it all up, the Nokia N9 is a ­beautiful phone. The phone handles all ­programs wonderfully, and its OS allows for smooth web surfing and watching videos. But despite its minimalistic beauty and the brilliant software, it's sad when...

The Nokia N9 is a weird beast. It runs the MeeGo Harmattan OS and has been released after a so-called elopocalypse when Nokia’s new CEO Stephen Elop controversially turned towards the Windows Phone platform, ditching both homegrown smartphone...

The Nokia N9 is a solid phone and MeeGo is a nice little platform. With the swipe gesture at its core, the Nokia N9 brings a neat concept to the table: the button-less phone, or “pure-touch” as Nokia calls it. Of course Google adopted this...

Sponsored links, if any, appear in green. The Nokia N9 has had quite a storied life, even though it was only announced just this summer. Revealed in June, the N9 was the first MeeGo-powered smartphone built by the Nokia, and as it turns out, it is...

We love almost everything about the Nokia N9, and that bodes well for the Nokia Lumia 800 Windows phone that uses nearly identical hardware. We'd give the N9 a higher start rating, but the high price, extremely limited availability and Nokia's...

Nokia’s N9 is the most exciting and coolest smartphone that the company has produced for a while, sporting a beautiful design, a very intuitive UI and excellent features. The only question that concerns us is whether users will have access to...

The N9 is a hard phone to recommend to a tech savvy buyer- the ideal demographic for this phone. Not because the hardware or software is bad- far from it, but I’m just not sure where it will stand in a few months from now when Nokia will be...

Is MeeGo a viable OS? Is the Nokia N9 design up to scratch? Is the new camera good enough? The resounding answer is yes, bittersweet though it may be. MeeGo ordains Nokia's impeccable hardware with a form fitted OS, one that could even challenge the...

When we tinkered further with the N9, we experienced a very noticeable lag across its interface. Closing off apps didn’t manage to resolve the issue, and we soon realized that the problem lies with the Events page. While Events is great in...

Nokia's really made our lives difficult here. On the one hand, the N9 delivers a double punch with gorgeous hardware and brilliant software. It's arguably the first competitive flagship phone to come out of Espoo since the launch of the original...
