Nokia N9 MeeGo Phone will not be released in United States

The N9 will launch in Sweden in September, but Nokia says there will be no US release.

Last week we reported that Nokia will launch the Nokia N9 MeeGo phone in Sweden on September 23. This supported hopes for MeeGo fans that the N9 will come in September as well to the United States. It is not going to happen. Engadget asked Nokia for the US release details and got a response that said that Nokia decided not to ship the Nokia N9 in the United States. 

As Nokia is not standing behind MeeGo, it is anyway for the best. It would be just a distraction to buy the Nokia N9. It has no future. It could have a bright future, but Nokia is going with Microsoft Windows Phone OS. We will see how that turns out.

The Nokia N9 has a touchscreen only design without the typical home button. The home key is replaced by a simple gesture: a swipe. Whenever you're in an application, swiping from the edge of the display takes you home. 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.
