Last year Nokia unveiled its first smartphone using the MeeGo operating system with the Nokia N9. People waited a long time for this offering.
Finnish manufacturer of the Nokia N9 promised a first MeeGo smartphone in 2010, following the announcement of its partnership with Intel to build this mobile platform that would fuel high-end specification. They didn’t disappoint, as since then this smartphone has gone on to be one of the strongest sellers for the company.
From summer 2010, a mysterious leak on Nokia N9 began to circulate. Stephen Elop, CEO of the group, gave evidence by announcing at the Nokia Connection event the Nokia N9 (codenamed Lankku), the first smartphone running MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan and positioning itself in the high end market. This is a terminal with an AMOLED touchscreen display 3.9 “resolution of 854 x 480 pixels (and resistant Gorilla glass).
So To The Specs Of The Nokia N9
Nokia N9 02DE dimensions 116 x 61 x 7.6 (for the thinnest part) to 12.1 mm (the side of the photo sensor) only 135 grams, the Nokia N9 embeds wireless connectivity WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, GPS and NFC.
It is compatible HSPA 14.4 Mbps / HSUPA 5.72 Mbps and features 16 to 64 GB of storage space. Inside, the TI OMAP3630 processor is a 1GHz (ARM Cortex-A8) with SGX530 PowerVR graphics processor, coupled with 1GB of RAM, which is probably sign that the design has been slow to find their way to the marketing of the product.
On the back is an 8 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and high performance wide angle lens with f/2.2 aperture which looks for ways to get clean shots even when lighting conditions are not ideal, but still with dual LED flash. The pictures can then be shared via NFC function. On the front, there is also a camera for video conferencing.
The Nokia N9 is also distinguished by its colored polycarbonate shell, one piece and surrounding the AMOLED screen it is slightly curved and allows you to use a gestural touch called “swipe” where one touches the screen side to side to access content.

Finally, the Web browser uses the engine Webkit2, can view multiple Web pages and support HTML5 for sites with rich web applications. As often with Nokia, autonomy is no exception: up to 11 hours GSM talk time and 7 hours 3G talk, or 50 hours continuous audio playback.
