My Nokia N9 arrived yesterday, but I was out and about the whole day and didn’t get it till I was on my way home. Anyone who knew how Lagos was yesterday knows that vehicular traffic was killing.
I rarely do unboxings. However, I was stuck in traffic for hours, many times at a stand-still for several minutes. To while away the time, I decided to do an on-the-road unboxing. Enjoy the pics and comments below.
- This Nokia N9 is a gift from Nokia West Africa
- This is my 3rd smartphone gift from Nokia
- Nokia West Africa is a client of mine as well
- The above facts notwithstanding, I have always made my device reviews as objective as possible, dishing out criticism of Nokia’s devices as I see fit. Not once has Nokia stepped in to ask me to tone down or be nicer. You can expect me to remain as objective as I have always been
I haven’t had time to play much with the N9, but I will get to it today and over the weekend. You can expect screenshots and reviews.
In the meantime, I must say that the user interface is clean, sweet and elegant. It actually reminds me a lot of WebOS.
It actually feels good to be one of the very first individuals to own one of this very rare device running MeeGo/Harmattan. Too much swagga. Thanks to everyone who sent in felicitations. Much appreciated.
For anyone planning on buying this collector’s item off me, its yours for just $1 million only. That’s a mere N165 million. Not much.
