    who has spare cash and doesn’t really care about apps, ecosystems,
    platforms and such’ – that’s nobody, then!

    I’d say it’s quite a lot of people actually (think non-geek).

    Had my N9 now 2 weeks and love it. Hopefully future firmware includes global cut/paste as this is the only major irritation I have with the phone. Oh, and BTW, in South Africa the N9 is an instant hit with large billboards, TV and print coverage (all Vodacom) everywhere.

    I want it because it looks darn good, and it runs Linux (I know Android does too, but Android is a layer of sloppiness on top of Linux – hence the reason why the single CPU core N9 with a GPU from 2005 is still smoother than the Galaxy Nexus).

    As for the ‘app ecosystem’ part – I believe there is a project being worked on by the community that will enable Android apps to run on the N9 (Myriad’s Alien Dalvik).

    MeeGo 1.2 looks impressive, and it’s such a shame Nokia are ditching it. That’s what happens when you invite “The Devil” (i.e. Elop – former M$ exec) onto the team. If Nokia want to go with WinPho7.x, then so be it, but don’t throw away something as good as MeeGo!

    I HATE MY
    NEW NOKIA N9. It is far worse than my old phone. Im a bit older so being
    able to make the font larger for texting messages or even reading
    them,or even being able to keep capitals on is something the N9 doesnt
    do!! Also its camera takes a good pic but the filing system is crap. You
    cant have seperate folders for pictures. I find this phone annoying,
    frustrating and basically useless. I am going back to my old phone.
    Anyone want to buy a N9.http://smartphones2012.org

    I have had mine N9 for a few months now and love it… I´m a Mac man when it comes to computers/tablets, but this phone is REALLY GOOD!!!

    I bought my Nokia N9 three weeks ago, notwithstanding all kinds of snide and sarcastic remarks and reviews. It turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life. People say: “Nokia N9 ? Poor applications, dead operation system, blah, blah…” 

    All this evaporates once you begin playing with the toy. It is the simplest, sexiest and most user friendly phone. Period… 

    All my friends have iPhones and Samsung Galaxy S IIs. They paid a fortune to buy them. Nonsense !

    I am not interested in billions of “fart-apps” or silly games ! 

    What I need is a ligtning fast, stable, reliable, sturdy, user-friendly smartphone with all the high quality applications and social networks built in. 

    Moreover, Nokia N9 has a lovely “swipe” action. No other smartphone has it. 

    It is a pure joy to use this phone. You can easily customise it too. 

    All in all, I’m a satisfied customer and I wholeheartedly recommend it.

    Don’t be distracted by what others say. Follow your heart :)

    You won’t regret it at all…

    Yes, this phone is excellent. Pocket computer, nice to use, cool looking. I was sold when I saw the terminal and started using the usual commands ls, top, … :D It IS Linux!
    Also Qt SDK rocks, got little things running on the phone almost instantly.
    I think it may become a significant hatching platform for more open source software for smartphones. Maybe it already is. The selling figures tell their story. Qt/QML/Linux is not time wasted.

    Yes, I mean the phone. Qt already is. :)

    i honestly believe that the N9 (which I own) is the best phone ever, light years ahead of any iphone or android…

    goto the app store and download “home screen settings” it allows you to have a different background on each home screen!

    the phone automatically sorts pics by facial tags and geo tags, and you can see these folders by selecting the various tabs at the bottom of the Gallery app.
    you can lock caps by tapping caps arrow until its white. this phone is AMAZING, and its been improved by the updates aswell
