Nokia says there might be another MeeGo Device after the Nokia N9
 
 

Nokia unveiled the MeeGo running Nokia N9 and it got a warm welcome from the tech press. Nokia let us know through its CEO Stephen Elop  that the Nokia N9 is the first and last MeeGo device. Some even think Nokia will never launch it at all. Now TechRadar received a clarification from Nokia that softens this stance. Nokia says that they likely will not give up on a strong consumer product. Early signs suggest that the N9 will be such a device.

This is maybe good news, but also could just be PR to lure you into buying the N9, despite knowing the fate of MeeGo at Nokia.

On the plus side. MeeGo itself seems to survive and is coming to the market on Netbooks. The Asus Eee PC X101 is supposed to already come next month.

The body of the Nokia N9 is precision-machined from a single piece of polycarbonate and flows seamlessly into beautiful curved glass. The laminated deep black display means that the user interface just floats on the surface of the product. Other feature highlights of the Nokia N9 include 3.9-inch OLED screen, 8MP camera, turn-by-turn navigation, 16:9 video display, Dolby Digital Plus, NFC and 16GB/64GB storage. The Nokia N9 is scheduled to be in stores later this year, with availability and local pricing to be announced closer to the sales start.

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.
