So far we have not heard too much about the Nokia N9, however recently a teaser video was released which let a few things about this upcoming smartphone slip, some of which reaffirmed things we posted back in January.
The video shows a few glimpses of the user interface, this clearly shows that it does not use Symbian^3 or Windows Phone 7, instead Nokia has chosen MeeGo. People have been slating Symbian^3 and there are plenty of WP7 on the market, therefore it will be interesting to see what this news OS brings to the table.
We have embedded the video teaser below, it also shows us a glimpse of 12 megapixel rear sensor which uses Carl Zeiss optics and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Engadget has studied the video more carefully and say that the camera will also feature autofocus.
The general opinion seems to be that the MeeGo OS will be the biggest factor in the handset’s success or failure, we saw Symbian^3 pretty much flop last year with the Nokia N8 and we also know that Nokia will be adopting WP7 in the future, so we don’t quite know what Nokia’s long-term plan is for MeeGo just yet. Our best guess is that perhaps they are looking to develop a single platform for both smartphones and tablets, we just wonder if their platform can compete with the likes of iOS and Android.
Check out the video for yourself below, do you think the Nokia N9 will be another flop?
