Nokia is looking to luxuriate in the public’s eye with the world’s first ever MeeGo device; the new Nokia N9. The world’s first Maemo device was the N900 and Nokia has made an announcementthat this is the last MeeGo device Nokia will use. That‘s confusing because it means the N9 phone will be obsolete before we get it.
MeeGo is a Linux-based open source OS developed by Intel and Nokia. Introduced in February of 2010 at the Mobile World Congress, this sleek new OS is being put into thinner phones.
Take a Look at the Nokia N9’s Specs:
- Video recording with true 16:9 720p capabilities
- quad-band GSM & penta-band WCDMA at just 14.4 Mbps
- Bluetooth 2.1
- NFC chip & A-GPS
- 802.11 b/g/n WiFi
- 1GB RAM
- 8 megapixel Carl Zeiss camera with wide-angle shooting, dual LED flash and a front facing camera for video calls and F2.2 aperture
- 3.9-inch AMOLED touchscreen (854 x 480 screen resolution)
- PowerVR SGX530 GPU
- 16GB or 64GB onboard memory
- MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan operating system
- 1 GHz Arm Cortex A8 OMAP3630 processor
- 1450 mAh battery
The size of the phone is 116.454mm by 61.2mm by 7.6mm and it only weighs 135 grams. The new Nokia N9’s thinness and latest technology make the phone the newest must-have on the market. A formidable opponent in the high tech device competition, the N9 is predicted to be the new smart phone for those in the know.
It’s too bad that this is the last MeeGo technology they’re going to use, and they didn’t say why this decision was made. It sure would be interesting to know; maybe they’ll change their minds.
