Nokia N9 Hands-on Video shows that MeeGo could have been a bright Nokia Future

 

Nokia unveiled today the Nokia N9 MeeGo phone. The N9 will be released later this year. Below you can watch a hands-on video from a Nokia marketing manager. The user interface looks really great and the performance of the N9 is stunning. Nokia got rid of the home button and everything is controlled trough the touchscreen. One things shown in the video is how you can swipe away a live playing video. The video actually continues to play while you peek at the screen behind. 

Nokia should have gone full in on MeeGo, now it is possibly to late. As I understand Nokia is positioning MeeGo as an experiment and not as anything that is aimed at the mass market. It is really confusing and I am not sure what we should do now with this awesome Nokia N9.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
