Nokia N9 Unboxing & First Impressions

IMAG0066
Nokia N9 is Nokia’s first and last MeeGo capable device. It is from here a lot of the design features found in the Lumia 800 are derived. This is what I call a well crafted device. First off it, its Sports a 3.6-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels, Gorilla Glass and anti-glare polarizer. an 8 megapixel camera that records at 720p and a front facing camera for video chat. . 16GB/64GB of internal storage no MicroSD bay. It runs MeeGo OS, v1.2 Harmattan with a 1Ghz TI OMAP 3630 Cortex A8 processor and 1GB of ram for some serious smoothness; with Bluetooth V2.1, Wi-Fi N and NFC support. It also does TV out through the 3.5mm headphone jack.

Hardware wise, the Nokia N(9is a well crafted piece of work, with the lack of physical button on the front of the device that  doesn’t take away from the beauty and practicality, to its smooth curves on its 3.9-inch AMOLED display and the back of the device. The Nokia N9 feels solid and well placed when holding in your hand. MeeGo is also an interesting breathe of fresh air, though we only used it for a few minutes with the unboxing. I can tell you it runs smooth and easy to navigate, with accessing apps and the idea of using three home screens, with on for all your apps, one for multitask and one for notifications, is very appealing and works. We are going to spend some time with the Nokia N9, play with camera, and put the device and OS through its paces. Till then enjoy our unboxing and first impressions below.
