Nokia N9 goes on sale in Sweden September 23rd, NFC capabilities demoed on video

Nokia N9 goes on sale in Sweden September 23rd, NFC capabilities demoed on video
The Swedish carrier Three announced that it will start selling the Nokia N9 on September 23rd. That's a far cry from "it's a month away" we heard yesterday, but still much better than Nokia's flagships of late, which sometimes shipped more than a year since announcement.

It might be worth the wait, if the phone is subsidized by your local carrier, since the preliminary prices for an unlocked handset bandied around sound a bit steep, if true. The unique MeeGo UI and the cool human interaction concepts behind it alone might be too enticing for some, since the Nokia N9 might be the best piece that has come out of the Finns' factories in a while, in terms of hardware/software fusion.

To add to the excitement being built around the phone, Nokia did tout its NFC capability as well. It will work not only with Nokia phones, but also with any other device that has NFC chip inside it. Besides mobile payments, NFC can be used for exchanging information between the phones, like contacts, pics or videos, and, further down the road, documents or URLs. Have a look at the NFC-enabled Nokia N9 in action in the video below:
