- Miscellaneous: NFC-enabled. Qt-based UI. Unibody design. No front buttons at all. Latest Nokia Maps. Dolby sound. Wi-Fi Hotspot turns your Nokia N9 into a mobile modem.
The lack of a front button is interesting, making the N9 the world’s first pure touchscreen smartphone. Everything is done with a swipe. To leave an app and go back to the home screen, the user swipes from the edge of the screen. Head over to swipe.Nokia.com for a demo.
Another first on any mobile phone is Dolby Headphone and Dolby Digital Plus support which turns regular stereo audio into personal surround sound on any headphones. Music buffs should try this one out.
Nokia also claim that the “N9 has the fastest camera on any phone – from launch to focus to capture. As great moments come and go in an instant, this means you never miss a shot.” This camera is one that I am looking forward to trying out.
Availability and Pricing?
Nokia say it will be available “later this year”, which is not saying anything, really.
In the meantime, I love the specs as presented here. I love the design of the phone. The N9 is sexy, has great hardware, and seems to have an amazing user interface.
