Nokia N9 In Malaysia – Powered By MeeGo

I’ve got mine, loving it so far – the best Nokia experience I’ve had as of yet.

I was a bit sceptical at first (even though I loved my Nokia N900, it was a pure geek device and not fit for the mainstream). The N9 however is pretty polished, there’s of course still a fair amount of things that I feel could be improved – but for once account sign-ups, mail sync, contact sync, Facebook, Twitter etc all work out of the box.

It manages contacts well with Facebook/Twitter/Phone numbers/e-mails all linked up and the home page shows a live stream from Twitter/Facebook/Flickr/Youtube etc all merged together + weather and any notifications like e-mail.

I hope a Pixelpipe app comes soon 😀 Can always send by e-mail though so that’s not a big deal. One of the first things I’ve noticed is there doesn’t seem to be any push notifications for apps like Facebook and Twitter – but perhaps I’m too used to the very invasive notifications from iOS.

Will write a proper review next week when I’m back from SCUBA diving in Redang (don’t be jealous yeh :P).

The prices in Malaysia for the Nokia N9 are:

Nokia N9 16GB – RM1,799
Nokia N9 64GB – RM2,088

    kallymoral: Yah!

    keeekeee: There are limited apps for MeeGo right now, there’s no Whatsapp etc. There is Twitter/Facebook & Foursquare and more apps being developed regularly.

    Myhorng: Yah loh, not too expensive too as it’s a very nice piece of hardware.

    I recognised that it’s a good hardware and so on… I think the lack of apps and the fact that the Ovi market appears to have little in the way of supporting that at the moment might not help this little phone. 🙂 Especially considering the costs.

    I loved Nokia before, and their phones were so good (and they still are hardy little things!). However, their first foray into smartphones left me wanting for more. Their cameras on the phones were good though – albeit when the iphone came out I just left it since… well, this was before Ovi and apps appeared.

    Anivyl: It’s a truly beautiful piece of hardware, but it’s still lacking the application ecosystem of iOS and Android. Personally I’m still waiting to see what they can do with WP7.
