Nokia Connection 2011: Unveiling the next chapter

The Nokia N9 sports a brilliant 3.9-inch AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla glass that offers scratch-resistance. As you can see from the above pic, there is no physical button on the front. To go to your home screens, simply swipe your finger across the display to the left (or right). It offers three home screens, namely events, apps and open apps.

While there are no buttons at the front, the volume controls and the power/phone lock key are conveniently placed on the right of the Nokia N9. The Nokia N9 is the first MeeGo device from the company and runs MeeGo 1.2. The phone is very responsive, partly thanks to its 1GHz processor. Its polycarbonate body feels rather sturdy too, and Nokia claims that the polycarbonate body can offer better antenna reception (unlike other phones on the market).


At the top, we spotted the 3.5mm audio jack, the microUSB connector for charging the phone's battery, and a SIM card slot just beside it. At the rear is the 8-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens, but if you go to the camera settings, for widescreen format, the resolution only goes up to 7-megapixel instead. The Nokia N9 is scheduled to be available later this year, with availability and local pricing to be announced closer to the sales date. The N9 will be available in 16GB and 64GB only though.


Aside from the Nokia N9 smartphone, the company also introduced three near-field communication (NFC) products – BH-219 Bluetooth headset, BH-505 Bluetooth stereo headset and the Play 360° speakers. All you need to do is simply touch the headset to a NFC-enabled phone to synchronize and connect.
