Nokia N9 countdown suggests September 23rd launch

Nokia N9 countdown suggests September 23rd launch
A countdown timer on Nokia's Swedish web site tells us to expect a launch of the MeeGo powered Nokia N9 on September 23rd. The first pure touchscreen phone with no hardware buttons on the front was expected to have a launch in the middle of next month as we reported. But with the countdown timer at 49 days and 10 hours, the official release will come a few days later. Pricing is still unknown.

The Nokia N9 and its gesture-centric navigation received a good response when introduced. But Nokia's CEO Stephen Elop has said that Windows Phone 7 is the future of the rapidly declining handset manufacturer. While the N9 does support AT&T and T-Mobile's 3G spectrum, it will not officially have a Stateside launch. Canadian 3G pipelines are also supported although there are no plans for the N9 to be released in that country either.

The Nokia N9 features a 3.9 inch curved AMOLED Gorilla Glass screen with resolution of 480 x 854, an 8MP Carl Zeiss Wide Angle camera with dual LED flash which captures video at 720p, and a 1GHz TI OMAP3630 processor under the hood. Without a home button, the user swipes from edge to edge to go back to the home page. The N9 will be available in black, cyan and magenta and will be offered in 16GB and 64GB models.
