Nokia N9 – The First MeeGo Phone Announced
Stephen Elop of Nokia just announced the first MeeGo phone – the Nokia N9 (also known as Lankku). We were promised a MeeGo phone this year, and we’re glad Stephen Elop kept his word about that and has announced the world’s first no-buttons phone!
Nokia N9 will have a 3.9-inch AMOLED screen (854 x 480 resolution), OMAP3630 1 Ghz processor, PowerVR SGX530 GPU, 16GB or 64GB onboard memory. Not just this, the Nokia N9 will also have a 8 megapixels camera (Nokia N8 had 12 megapixels!), and will be capable of true 720p video recording.
For the software side, MeeGo looks really good and promising. It has unified notifications for Facebook, Twitter and RSS feeds in the Events view, social networking integration in the Contacts list and features a homescreen simplified into three views: Events, Applications and Open Apps. Ovi Store is also included in MeeGo, but we seriously hope Nokia would soon allow you to run Android apps on the Nokia N9, just like BlackBerry did with its PlayBook tablet.
What Nokia N9 has to offer?
- Swipe guestures
- Unibody design
- No buttons
- Three homescreens
- 8 megapixels camera
- Fast web browser
- Nokia Maps
- Dolby Sound
And don’t forget, Angry Birds will be making it’s way on the Nokia N9 as well!
This phone will come in three colours: black, cyan, and magenta. We hope of getting a hands-on preview and later a full review of the device soon when it makes it to the market later this year!
