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.
Western markets.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
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?

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.

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.
