N9

what does everyone think?

 

if i were a symbian user i would be really excited about this but its pretty much a step back from the N900

 

no... keyboard

mention of flash

control over the home screens

sign of a terminal

etc...

 

it does look very good but to go to that after the N900 is like going to a S40 device from an N8. there's just too much missing

 

all it has to offer that i want is the pinch & zoom, a better screen and a better camera :smileysad:

Re: N9

No be honest bro, not much has been mentioned at all. In was only "released" like a few hours ago.
Wait and see then you can rage.

Re: N9

swapping your keyboard for a faster cpu, faster gpu, more ram, compass, maps, and a year and a half of software updates..

it's a tricky call.. I would sorely miss my N900 keyboard

Re: N9

I agree..love the keyboard. How can you email...seriously on a touch screen? Looks good though...guess we will have to wait and see.

Re: N9

I was thinking more how could I use the terminal app.. ctrl, shift, fn.. those are all invaluable..

using terminal with the virtual keyboard on the N900 is a proper pain

I think I'd definitely prefer the N950, but it sounds like it'll be hard to get.. shame, because it looks pretty awesome too

that might make it more attractive but still lacks full flash support, a terminal and i need to be able to use a ponter:smileyindifferent:

maybe size m8. the n8 looks like it has an extra mole on the back!

much sexier to be smooth....if you know what i mean! :smileywink:

its a shame the are making these devices with the auto focus.....the e90 and n900 have far superior picture taking control with the double tap levers.

i could never get the same high quality pictures from my e71 which had the same camera but different focus or even the new c7...which takes nice pictures, but notas good as my n900!

imo...because of the focus control.

 

 

edit:  tx for the kudos m8  :smileywink:

Re: N9

From what I have seen so far, I would trade my N8 in for it. And I love my N8

in a heartbeat...symbian for maemo/meego!

 

you will find having a hard time ever going back because of the ease of flow.  especially with how this is looking in the videos.....

 

the question now that remains....WHAT COLOR TO GET?!

Re: N9

They symbian on the E7 sucks vs the maemeeo on the N900.  I traded my n900 for the E7 and regret it and now the N9 supercedes the N900 not bad I say as long as its the maemeeo softeware...

Re: N9

It certainly looks swish, I cant wait for the nokia rep to come around and show me the coolness. He bought around the x7 last month and that looked great. So progresswise the n9 should be great.

Re: N9

how about some possible features / packages:

 

facebook, flickr, gmail, gtalk, picassa, sip, skype, twitter and youtube account plugins!.. that's integrations for all those services out of the box

wl1273-fm-radio-firmware, drivers for an FM radio maybe?

conn-dui-settings-nfc, libnfcstack: Software for NFC programming

facebookqml: facebook client

joikuspot: Oh good, bundled comercial software.. still, wifi hotspot mode is good!

kofficemeego: built in office suite

layar: augmented reality browser!! What is this for?

maps: potentially with real navigation and voice directions..

mms-messaging-plugin: it supports MMS natively. maybe?



I am really looking forward to this phone!

 

Nokia, please can I buy an N950!!! I promise I'll port all my forum debug scripts to it to help new users and old users!!

hello everyone, i'm back ! i had exams......

anyway this device is bloody awesome, i think u guys mentioned the awesome camera, the smooth as hell ui, and the super sexyness, here are some extras, the browser's html 5 performance smoked the ipad2's and the samsung galaxy s 2's , alien delvik will be avaible on the n9 later this year, with a small software it takes 10 minutes to INSTALL an android app/game on the n9, and it will run like any other apps, and more than 90 % of the apps in the android marketplace are supported, so yes no worries about the lack of apps ....

it has a facebook/youtube/twitter clients ....

it has an fm transmitter, but no software to take advantage of it, software update is on its way .....

no flash, but wait for the fennec, this isn't the fennec ........

a lots of NFC advantages like angry birds multiplayer or whatever.......

office editing for free out of the box .

and after alll its fully open source, and i bet terminal is there somewhere ...... and i think it already can run gingerbread .... :smileyvery-happy:

best device people, best device .

and CPITCHFORD you should get that n950, i heard they only have 280 handsets to loan, and you deserve one for real ! i mean your the best here mate .....

Reality is wrong....dreams are for real... 2pac .
don't forget to hit that green kudos :smileyhappy:
