Today at Nokia Connections in Singapore , Nokia has just released their latest MeeGo Device , the Nokia N9 , we have already covered it’s leaked video in our earlier posts.
The beauty of Nokia N9 is that it’s the world’s first ‘Pure Touch’ device i.e. it got no buttons on the front to use the phone i.e no Home / Menu key and every function is a touch or swipe away like to exit an application, just swipe from the screen edge to get back to Home Screen or to unlock just tap the screen twice.
In our brief look around , the salient features of the phone are
- Uni Body design which Nokia introduced with N8 but this time the it’s made of one piece Poly Carbonate .

Does Nokia has a market disruption device with N9 – We think so , the ideas are innovative and technology is mind blowing, what matters is what kind of processor Nokia is using and how long Nokia is going to support this MeeGo device , remember the N900 which was a show stealer a couple of years ago to be abandoned a year later, I hope Nokia this time shows some commitment to their first MeeGo device before hand like exchanging it with N900 ( I wish ) to gain market trust .
