08/20/2012, Now this is rather interesting – a device which is not a native of the Android ecosystem has been spotted to run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, putting to shame some of the more established names in the Android world that has seen their fair share of smartphones yet to receive an operating system update until not. The NITDroid project is successful enough to get Android 4.1 Jelly Bean up and […]
03/22/2012, The Nokia N9 is not known to be powered by the Android platform, but that does not mean that enterprising users have not tried giving Google’s mobile operating system a go on the smartphone. NITDroid managed to come up with an alpha release that sees Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich running on the Nokia N9, but since this is an extremely early build, it makes sense that not everything works. […]
03/18/2012, If you happen to own the Nokia N9, then here is a wee bit of news that might just uplift your spirits. We are talking about the Nokia N9 PR1.2 camera improvements which include face recognition, continuous shutter and video editing as part of the enhancements. The software update started to roll out since last week, and according to Jens Wilke, Camera Program Manager at Nokia, “These improvements have been […]
11/30/2011, It seems that the color white is an attractive one for hardware manufacturers to roll out – case in point, the white iPhone making quite the splash when it was first announced, and since then, we have had different colored hardware making their mark as well. Nokia’s effort with the ill-fated N9 is not yet over, as the Finnish handset manufacturer has just announced that they will be introducing a […]
11/07/2011, If you’re into exploring places but you don’t like leaving the house, or you find yourself not having the time to travel and go on long holidays, Nokia has the app just for you. Called Nokia City Scene, this app lets you “explore places before you get there to get a feel for the local environment or to find out what that place you’ve always wanted to go to looks […]
10/26/2011, If you watched the keynote event at Nokia World 2011 yesterday, you would have noticed how much emphasis the speakers placed onto its upcoming Windows Phone devices. Well, judging by first impressions, it certainly is one beautiful device, especially when held in the hand. Although many people probably don’t agree with the flashy color choices (there’s always the black color option) it does boast a solid looking design and exudes […]
10/26/2011, Despite the N9 being Nokia’s first and last MeeGo phone, it looks like the company won’t be leaving it alone. Today, Nokia announced that it will be releasing a white variant of the N9, and for folks who already own an N9 phone – they will be getting a software update in the future as well. The software update includes usability improvements (i.e. music controls from the lock screen and […]
09/30/2011, Wait, when did China get their hands on the Nokia N9? Nope, if you thought that was the Nokia N9, you can’t be blamed as it does look rather convincing upon first glance, especially with that garish magenta, which is one of the colors available for the actual Nokia N9 (along with black and turquoise).
09/29/2011, The Nokia N9 is slated to be the first, as well as achieve infamy as being the last MeeGo-powered device from the Finnish phone manufacturer. While it was supposed to come in a bevy of colors, white certainly was not part of the plan. I don’t know about you, but white gadgets are nice to look at although keeping them clean and pristine can be quite the pain as most […]
09/27/2011, 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 […]
09/07/2011, Surfing Nokia Australia’s site showed off the up and coming Nokia N9 – and surprisingly, it retailed for 299 Euros, which is definitely not the currency of choice whenever you travel Down Under. Not only that, it seemed that clicking on the link to purchase the handset does nothing but refresh the page – perhaps one of the webmasters made a boo boo of the situation, and has failed to […]
08/10/2011, We know that Nokia’s N9 smartphone will not be arriving Stateside, and the same fate has befallen over folks living in the UK – which is rather sad, since the MeeGo love will not spread across both countries. Not only that, insult is added to the injury as Nokia plans to halt sales of all Symbian and feature phones in the region – as Nokia starts to focus on its […]
08/08/2011, If you were wondering whether you’d get to play with your favorite feathered friends and slingshot on Nokia’s upcoming MeeGo phone, you don’t have to worry anymore. The folks over at MeeGo Experts have shot a video showing Angry Birds running on the Nokia N9 and it sure looks beautiful on the phone’s AMOLED screen. The game translates over to the platform really well, running smoothly without a hitch.
07/22/2011, The Nokia N9, said to be the last MeeGo device that will ever ship out from Noka’s doors, has been stripped apart by the FCC, as the body puts up for parade its drawn and quartered chassis in a bunch of photos for the curious. Tests done on it have confirmed that this is a quadband 2G and pentaband 3G (2100/1900/1700/900/850 MHz) handset, and just in case you need to […]
