Nokia N9 – First Impressions, Tech Specs and Release date details

Nokia N9 is among the latest gadget in streets currently and the tech specs seems to be cool as it’s Nokia’s first Intel MeeGo based smartphone. It seems that for its latest gem, Nokia really cared about the phone hardware unlike what it used to do with its previous high end phones.

The all new N9 announced last week got really good, in fact best hardware specs as compared to other Nokia high end phones available. But still not upto the mark as it doesn’t even reach near to what current generation phones of other companies are offering. Here is a short discussion what Nokia is offering with its N9.

Nokia N 9 Hardware

Nokia brought 1GHz CPU this time with Cortex A8 CPU, along side it comes with 1GB of RAM. That’s pretty old combo and was blooming last year and this year getting this combo is no brainier. There’s no dual-core antics and the single core is pretty weak, but is good if you look at the OS running on it. The screen size has been increased a bit i.e 0.4inches and the new player comes with 3.9inch screen with same AMOLED display panel as that of Nokia N8. The display resolution is rapidly increased to 480 x 854 pixels.

Its obviously big in dimensions than N8 and has dimensions of 116.5 in height, 61.2 in width and 12.1 in depth. Wireless connectivity includes 3G support up to 14Mbps, WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP and EDR.

Unlike the N8, its not totally camera featured. This time the camera is reduced to 8 Megapixels which supports resolution of 3264×2448 pixels carried with auto focus as well as LED Flash. Yes, there’s also a secondary camera. Video recording still supports only 720p clippings at 30fps.

Phone is available in two storage option (internal storage) 16GB and 64GB there is no 32GB option and neither facility for installing additional microSD card for extra storage. That means, its iPhone here the internal memory is the final one.


The phone comes with MeeGo OS v1.2  (Harmattan) looks similar to Symbian Anna but still no idea regarding that, time will clear everything.

Multimedia capabilities

The MeeGo OS loaded on N9 supports MP3/WAV/eAAC+/WMA/FLAC for audio playback and MP4/H.264/H.263/WMV player for video playback. Along with that it comes with pre-loaded games like Angry Birds Magic (NFC), Galaxy on Fire 2, Real Golf 2011.

Battery Life

It comes with 1450mAh battery but as we didn’t get the hands-on battery performance we will clear the reports later but as stated by Nokia it provides Up to 380 (2G) and Up to 450h (3G) when on standby and Up to 11h (2G) and Up to 7h (3G) for talktime.


Nokia N9 looks similar to iPod Nano 6G, yes that’s small actually. Buying the phone right now won’t make any extra ordinary decision. The phone has old hardware which I used to review last year, even the camera is low and supports only 720p recordings. The storage options are really bad, 32GB was must option to be added. Plus its not going to hit India soon and only supports micro SIM card.
