Nokia has started to ship their N9 smartphone to stores as well as customers – and it is the only (and perhaps the last) MeeGo handset by Nokia. No idea on whether anyone else will pick up the MeeGo operating system if they see any potential in it, but it would certainly be a brave person to drop 480 Euros and 560 Euros for the 16GB and 64GB models of the Nokia N9, respectively. After all, how long do you think support will be provided by Nokia if they aren’t going to continue work on MeeGo down the road?
Still, the Nokia N9 seems to boast some pretty solid looking hardware, featuring a button-free user interface as well as what some deem to be an intuitive way to browse the Internet. With three home views – Applications, Events and Live Applications – to choose from, you will be able to go through the smartphone easily, accessing your favorite programs and content in a jiffy.
You can choose from black, cyan or magenta colors for your N9 of choice, regardless of storage capacity. Any takers? Incidentally, there was a post on Nokia’s blog earlier this morning concerning the N9′s shipping, but it was taken down shortly after that. No idea on why that happened. [Press Release]
