Nokia N9 expected to launch August 19th
Nokia hasn't inspired much hope for the future of MeeGo and the Nokia N9, but the captivating UI and colorful design might have intrigued you. Now, it appears that the handset is closer to launch as a Kazakhstan-based retailer has it listed as available for August 19th. The off-contract price stands at nearly $685. At the same time, the N9, went up for pre-order in Russia, one of Nokia's traditional markets where the phone expected to sell big.

Just two days ago, the Nokia N9 cleared yet another hurdle on the road to the market by passing FCC certification. It has also recently appeared on various country-specific Nokia websites countering rumors that the phone won't be available at all in most Western markets.

The N9 features the touch and swipe-centric MeeGo and sells in a 16GB and 64GB versions with off-contract price expected to reach nearly $750 for the latter. With a 3.9-inch screen, 1GHz TI chip and an 8MP Carl Zeiss shooter, the phone definitely has the muscle to back up the platform, but is this enough for you to get it? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

Apps arent enough, hope devs will continue to develop for meego and qt. Also it is quite steep when considering that the iphone 4 here in hong kong is about usd700 for 32 gigs Yes n9 is undoubtly one of the most innovative devices out there but im not sure whether this is enough.

The Application Which Developed in QT can be used by the Symbian, MeeGo devices and also they have started the QT application months back Nokia have decent amount of Application. If this gone to be a Hit then there will be more and more developer will be there to develop the application in QT which not only benefit MeeGo but also the Existing Symbain devices.

I would totally get it! If it were supported more and backed by developers :-/ The phone shows some promise. The specs are great and the product itself is gorgeous, especially in pink ;-)

Dam 700 beans off contract? It's like they just wanna fail. This phone is nice and all but why in the world would I get this over a SGS2, or an iphone 5. For its camera capabilities? Nokia is playing a deadly game of russian roulette.

There are smart phones like the Iphone5, SGSII, Droid Bionic, Nokia WP7...but this is a genius phone :)

I got a question though..will this ever be available for Verizon customers? If so, would this be a better choice than the SGS2 and iPhone5?

I'm waiting for this beauty. :) Quality wise Nokia is #1, and I really don't care abt apple iphone, I already have iPad, therefore, N9 will be the best choice. :)
