Nokia’s store in its own country’s capital, Helsinki, is already taking pre-orders for the MeeGo powered N9, the first pure-touch smartphone launched by Nokia at the end of June. Based on initial feedback and a couple of pre-order days, demand is very good and Nokia might face a success story.
All 64GB models of the N9 have been reportedly reserved, so all of you in Finland who want the phone will have to settle (for the moment) for the 16GB variant. The buttonless slate has a unibody design, sports a 3.9-inch curved glass AMOLED display and FWVGA resolution (854 x 480 pixels) while its processor is a Texas Instruments OMAP3630 1GHz CPU aided but a PowerVR SGX530 GPU. Helping it there’s a full gigabyte of RAM on board as well as either 16GB or 64GB storage for the two main variants.
The eight-megapixel auto focus camera with Carl Zeiss optics takes stellar pictures, has dual LED flash and super wide 28mm lens, with 16:9 720p video recording capability. With those great looks, hopefully borrowed by the SeaRay, we can expect the buzz around Nokia’s upcoming Windows Phone too.
