I currently have an E72, which more or less I like. I am considering trying an N9 but wonder about a few points. I would be appreciative if anyone has any comments about this.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Looking at your criteria I think that unfortunately N9 would fall short upon several of your demands. I find N9 pretty feeble when reliant upon Integrated GPS especially if hasn't been used for a while, although to be fair E72 is not great compared with some other handsets. Notification LED never made it, with it only being used to show battery charging which is a complete waste although "hackers" have had varying degrees of success in showing receipt of SMS. Skype needs Peregrine app. installed either from Nokia Store or http://wiki.peregrine-communicator.org/display/app
Unless you are a linux fan and prepared to tinker I don't think that you would realise it's full potential and it wasn't until Lumia 820 and 920 came along that I felt it's screen is now a bit small.
