Nokia N9 praised for its hardware, software not so cool yet
Eldar describes the hardware as "near perfect", and that is something we can conclude for ourselves from the pictures - that chiclet keyboard on an aluminum sheet will surely feel great. However, it is MeeGo that interests us most, but, unfortunately, the software on the prototype is said to be "not so good at the moment". We aren't surpised, since MeeGo is still very much a work in progress, but Q1 of 2011 should have some moments in store for Nokia fans on that front.
His forum post says that in a few years the MeeGo UI will replace that of Symbian, but its core for low and midrange handsets will stay the same, most likely for compatibility's sake. Flagship Nseries phones like the N9, though, will be running full-blown MeeGo, inside and out. At least that was the original strategy, who knows what will happen at Nokia, with the new management and all.

N9 looks a lot better than N900 imo, and they really don't look alike too

Hardware wise it's amazing. But they really need to catch up on their software. Apple and android just look so much better.

How can you or eldar or anyone say anything about an os that is not completed yet? That is like saying the next batman movie is horrible and it has not been completed yet. Use sense, people.

Unregistered users are most likely to be a troll anyway. Giving out shitty comments without facts behind to support counts as a troll. Calling other ppl dumb for no reason counts as a troll.

Mr.Murtazin acts in a position of a consultant for Samsung. And that is WELL documented. Why anyone would listen to a thing he says is beyond me LOL

Couldn't have said it better myself.

Is it for sure that Murtazin is playing with the device and not just making this up as he usually does with Nokia devices nowadays?

Again, couldn't have said it better myself. This guy is a known Nokia hater. No one should pay attention to anything this fool says.

Knowing Nokia, it will be released in Q2 2011 and it will look like a joke when iApple releases iPhone5 and LG, Samsung, Acer, HTC, & Motorola launch dual core processor devices (all of which will look light years more advanced than anything Nokia could create) earlier in Q1 2011.
N900 owner left out in the cold...

I don't quite get why you are so negative, Jeronemo. Just look at the N8 specs: Kick-ass camera and a FM-transmitter and so on. Iphone cost a lot more and all you get is a bunch of customized applications wich seems to make every Mac-using tweek-challenged dork come in their pants...
All N9 nedds to be is a N8 with physical keyboard and i will pawn my grandma to afford it!

Nokia E7 is the N8 with the keyboard!
