Can someone help:

Can someone make me buy an N9?
I had a quick play with one yesterday (2 minutes). Smooth. Very nice.

But I had to Galaxy 2 (***** phone). Got the iPhone 4s (I enjoy the reliable phone).

But I'm an N900 fan! N900 or die!

But... N9 - Why should I go grab one?
I'm thinking about getting one as a developer toy like my N900 was (dead and gone now!).

  • Most eye-catching phone on the market (get the cyan one!)
  • Extremely slick UI
  • Closest currently produced phone to a Linux PC in your pocket
  • Uncle Sam wants YOU to write an N9 app

While the N9 is missing some of the infrastructure and features that made the N900 unique, it still has a huge edge over the iPhone and any Android phone.

You should grab one before it disappears due to Elop pulling the plug as N9 continue to outsell Lumia.

It's not going to happen. Nokia charges a premium on N9 while giving free gifts and incentives for Lumia. Prices have gone down after the scalpers have taken their fill but I don't think they are going to drop much further.

This, and you'll get a phone that already has the status of Collector's Item, Legendary, and Mythical, despite it being relatively new to the market.

I have spent the last 3 months since my N900 contract finished looking for a replacement. I did not have the N9 in mind but set a list fo criteria that any replacemnet must meet:-

Ability to play music via uPNP or DNLA.
Decent Camera
Skype, but not video
Drag and drop transfer of music and video etc
Quick interface
Micro SD storage
... and a few others.

I kept comming back to the N9 and given the 64Gb storage capacity I could overlook the lack of Micro SD slot.

It is arriving today and "I'm as excited as a very exciteable person who has a special reason to be excited".

But after all that list writing and deliberation it only took 1 minute of playing with a real N9 and I was sold!

I will never own any apple or MS product, call me biased or whatever...

I like Android very much. Well, liked, ... until I player extensively with an N9.

It's like they say: the interface is really ahead of anything else.

Every time I use my android phone, I think: but why is the UI so clumsy?

Ah well, perhaps a mod can come along for Android to mimic the N9 UI...


Other than that, indeed, the N9 is a different phone, for different people.


One thing that no-one mentions:
N9 is the first (barring n950) and last of its kind
but it was always set up to be like that. Consider that MeeGo Harmattan is Maemo 6, and future Meego would be .rpm based (no longer Debian..?!), etc, and you realise N9 would always have been unique.
Perhaps the good thing: Nokia being Nokia, they cannot fully drop it, and since the N9 is the last one in the MeeGo Nokia line, it will have all the attention.
Sure, it may not be much, but if the path would have continued, it could have been worse: Nokia claiming to continue support for MeeGo, but doing it for .rpm style true MeeGo phones, not the N9,... PR1.1 would likely have been the last update in that case.

Just my thoughts.
