The first MeeGo-based smartphone announced by Nokia is now available. Revealed initially in June, the N9 is all screen and no buttons as you can see from the picture above and is solely dependent on the touchscreen for any type of input, including a swipe to unlock the device.
Nokia N9 is powered by a single core 1GHz TI OMAP 3630 processor, complemented by a PowerVR SGX530 graphics processing unit and pack 1GB of RAM. N9 features a microUSB, aGPS, Bluetooth, HSDPA network support, TV out and WiFi With no home key, there’s more room for apps to shine. Three home views — Applications, Events and Live Applications — enable people to navigate through the smartphone easily and get to their favorite content faster. Nokia says the prices for the N9, which comes in either black, cyan or magenta, will be an eye-watering €480 for the 16GB model ($650) and €560 ($758) for the 64GB version storage options to accommodate plenty of content and will be on sale in countries around the world.
The device is available across Europe. To many people’s dismay, despite the good reviews, it began to emerge that Nokia didn’t have plans to sell the N9 with operators in several markets (including the U.S. and the UK)—presumably because it wants to clear the decks to introduce its new line of Windows Phones.
