Nokia N9 MeeGo Based Button-Less Smartphone – NFC, 3.9″ AMOLED Screen

Nokia N9_sideNokia N9 is a MeeGo based device that will feature no front-facing hardware buttons, making it the world’s first button-less smartphone. To activate the phone, just double tap the display instead of pressing a hardware button.

It sports 3.9″ AMOLED screen which is made from scratch-resistant curved glass and it features an Unibody design. It is constructed of a single piece of anodized poly-carbonate and a curved glass display sitting on top of it. This means better reception, better voice quality and fewer dropped calls.

The 8.0 MP Carl Zeiss autofocus sensor, wide-angle lens, HD-quality video capture and large lens aperture enable great camera performance even in low-lighting conditions. This makes Nokia N9 one of the best camera-phones ever produced.

Nokia N9 features free turn-by-turn drive and walk navigation with voice guidance in Maps. With the new dedicated Drive app, you can get in your car and start navigating to your destination right away.

You can watch videos in true 16:9 widescreen format. And because Nokia N9 is also the world’s first smartphone with Dolby Digital Plus decoding and Dolby Headphone post-processing technology, you get a surround sound experience with any set of headphones.

Fitted with the latest in wireless technology, Near Field Communication (NFC), Nokia N9 allows you to easily share images and videos between devices by touching them together. Pair it with Bluetooth accessories like the new NFC-enabled Nokia Play 360° wireless music speaker only once, and you get a great surround sound music experience with just a tap.

The MeeGo operating system will feature a carousel-like view for the home screen with the space divided into calls, applications and social media. MeeGo will feature a powerful web browser based on the webkit engine.

Users will be able to now swipe from edge-to-edge of the display to switch between applications making the user interface intuitive in-comparison to Symbian, which involved a series of steps.

Nokia N9 will be available in three colors – black, cyan, and magenta and it will be launched in two variants, one a 16GB and another, whopping 64GB.

Nokia N9 is scheduled to be in stores later this year, with availability and local pricing to be announced closer to the sales start.
