    We all know that Nokia is known for the attention it gives to the cameras in its smartphones. Apparently, though, not everyone who bought themselves a new Lumia 800 is singing the praises for that model's camera. According to some recent Twitter posts by Nokia's Damian Dinning, a software update is in the works that should hopefully bump-up image quality for both the Lumia 800, as well as its cousin, the N9. Details on just what improvements may be in store aren't yet available. The reports of Lumia 800 quality problems that we've seen indicate that it should theoretically be possible for ...

    We've recently heard that Nokia is planning to roll-out a certain PR1.1 update for the MeeGo-powered Nokia N9 by the end of this year and it looks like some N9 owners are already receiving the platform refresh. The software update version number is 20.2011.40-4 and, aside from the fixes, it brings a couple of new features to the table like music controls on lock screen, color filters (black & white, sepia, vivid, negative, solarize) for photo and video shooting, more powerful multitasking with improved memory handling, Swype for fast typing, new indicators for standby screen like charging ...

    Regardless if we are referring to products that are already available on the market -- such as the Symbian-powered Nokia N8 or the MeeGo-powered Nokia N9 -- or those which were recently unveiled -- like the Lumia 800 running Windows Phone -- Simon Lee-Smith, Telefonica's European General Manager for Devices, thinks they are "too expensive". "If Nokia wants to sell in volume, they need to bring out devices which are cost-competitive", he added, noting that Nokia's premium devices are "not yet at the right price point". When Stephen Elop was on stage at Nokia World to unveil the Lumia 800 ...

    Nokia has built the N9 without any buttons, capacitive or hardware. Having MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan at its core, the experience of the N9 is based on a simple gesture: the swipe. That's all you need to operate the device. It's not Android, iOS or Windows Phone but it definitely has a couple of accents and similarities with all the aforementioned operating systems. Overall the phone seems snappy but the biggest problem with MeeGo (aside from the fact that Nokia abandoned it) is the lack of applications in the Nokia Store. We take a brief look at the experience Nokia delivers on the N9 with MeeGo ...

    After unboxing and taking a look at the hardware on the MeeGo-powered Nokia N9, we are now taking a look at the camera capabilities on the phone. We're looking at both imaging and recording. The Nokia N9 features an f/2.2 eight-megapixel auto focus camera with Carl Zeiss optics, dual LED flash and super wide 28mm lens, delivering 16:9 720p video recording with stereo sound. The camera is particularly interesting because it will be the same one Nokia uses on the recently announced Nokia Lumia 800 Windows Phone. Let's take a look at the samples below! Note: YouTube somewhat degraded the ...

    Nokia World wasn't only about the Lumia Windows Phones and some S^40 Asha devices. The Finnish manufacturer took its time to revisit the Nokia N9, which lends its aspect to the Lumia 800, and announce a new color together with a software update. Initially announced and available in pink, cyan and black (pretty much the colors for the Lumia 800), the MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan-powered N9 will also get a white variant (and hopefully so will the Lumia Windows Phone). It will be available this year and, opposed to the other N9 devices, it will sport a glossy finish rather than a matte one. MeeGo fans ...

    Everything about the Nokia N9 speaks of quality, that premium feel which you're used to when holding (not only) high-end devices made by the Finnish manufacturer based in Espoo. After the unboxing we're looking at the hardware on the Nokia N9. It sports a 3.9-inch curved glass AMOLED display of FWVGA resolution (854 x 480 pixels), and it's powered by a Texas Instruments OMAP3630 1GHz CPU aided by a PowerVR SGX530 GPU. There's 1GB RAM on board as well as either 16GB or 64GB of internal storage. Our unit has 16GB of storage. The device is made out of a single piece of plastic with a unibody ...

    Nokia has officially unveiled the N9 as the "first-ever pure touch smartphone" back in June (now, four months after, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus can say it's "pure-touch" phone too) and it doesn't run Symbian nor Windows Phone but MeeGo. With a 3.9-inch curved glass AMOLED display of FWVGA resolution (854 x 480 pixels), the N9 is powered by a Texas Instruments OMAP3630 1GHz CPU aided but a PowerVR SGX530 GPU. There's 1GB RAM on board as well as either 16GB in the model which we are currently unboxing. Nokia threw in a microUSB syncing and charging cable, a wall charger, a pair of headphones, ...
