Nokia Unveils N9 – The First MeeGo Smartphone

Nokia N9

Nokia has unveiled this new smartphone. The N9 handset uses the Meego Operating system, even though Nokia is now focusing resources on Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7. Industry watchers call the launch pointless and the phone could prove hard to sell as it is based around a technology that it has already started to sideline.

Nokia developed MeeGo in early 2010 to be the core platform on which many future Nokia phones, tablets and other consumer devices would be built. But in February 2011, this strategy changed after Nokia decided to back Windows Phone 7 for its future smart phones.

“It seems pointless to launch a phone like the N9 on a platform that has been cut by management,” said RBS securities analyst Didier Scemama in a research note.

  1. I sure don’t want any WP7 phone, but something like this Nokia N9 with grat looking MeeGo is definitely what I would buy. Nokia should just fire the new boss and put someone smart for CEO.

  2. Nokia should focus on what it does best – producing mass cheap feature phones – and forget about smart phones. Meego? Give me a break. And Windows won’t help them either. Nokia’s line of smart phones have been made to look like an archaic devise most notably by Apple and hence why the company shouldn’t fight a war they cannot win. Just carry on with those cheap feature phones. There’s still a big market for it and the likes of Apple are not interested in it..
