Nokia N9 – Last MeeGo Phone

Nokia N9 the new sensation is the last smartphone from Nokia which shipped with MeeGo OS as Nokia has already canceled MeeGo and opted for Windows OS for Mobile Phones. Nokia has developed some of the most used mobile handset in the world with there official Software but its time to say goodbye. N9 is no doubt one of the most beautiful handset made by Nokia ever. Although its not the slimmest phone nor it has glossy looks but the big touch screen and unibody design will automatically attracts you. With just 116.5 x 61.2 x 12.1 mm in dimension and weighs only 135 grams you can own this beast in just $550.

Screen Size and Design

As said earlier Unibody design and no metal this time. All phone is made up of polycarbonate plastic which is no ordinary plastic. The body can take a few knocks and mainly scratch proof. No paint problem with this body and even if you try to deep scratch you won’t see any thing except the same color body. You cannot replace the battery in this model with micro-SIM and all connectivity options are hidden under the cover at the top of the phone. Screen size is 3.9 inches AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 16M colors for sharp and detailed images. Multi-Touch screen with resolution 480 x 854 pixels equipped with Corning Gorilla Glass and Anti-glare polariser makes it perfectly visible in sunshine as well as in dark.

Processor and OS

N9 is built for power and performance that’s why Nokia has shipped 1 GHz Cortex A8 processor in it. Although with growing technology it may sound less but infect you will not feel slowness or any jerks while browsing. After running so many applications we have seen not a single decrease in performance and i think that’s a key to the success of this model. Operating System used by Nokia is MeeGo version 1.2 Harmattan which will be used last time and soon will become history.

Camera

Although it has only 8 mega Pixel camera with resolution of 3264×2448 pixels but what makes it special is Carl Zeiss optics lens. Quality of photos taken by its camera are stunning and with new enhanced dual LED flash light its 20% more brighter light will take pictures in low light as well. Other features of camera are Geo-tagging, face detection and touch-focus. You can also capture high quality video of 720p at 30 frames per seconds.

Memory

Believe it or not it has no memory card slot at all. I wonder what’s the reason behind this but it comes with two built-in memory models of 16 and 64 GB storage with 1 GB RAM which is i think more than enough.

Connectivity

As you can expect in high end smartphone all major connectivity options are available in this model. Starting from Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth, GPRS, EDGE and microUSB.

Other features and Colors
