Nokia N9 wins special place in GSM Arena’s geeky hearts (and a look at N9 camera UI)

GSM Arena are possibly one of the most objective places on the net with regards to phones. They’ve just published a four-page article on Nokia’s new N9. What do they think of it?

They’ve got some hands on time with the Nokia N9 Harmattan-MeeGo phone and love it.

  • Although demo was short, “it was enough for it to earn a special place in our geeky hearts”
  • premium finish and the outward curved screen are nothing short of outstanding.
  • The N9 screen is bordering on perfection – (read their review as to why, is sounds great!)
  • We were pleasantly surprised by the MeeGo Harmattan platform and starting to doubt whether switching to Windows Phone 7 was the only option available to Nokia.
  • it appears that the wait has been worth it as MeeGo in its current version offers a is already a pretty cool platform.
  • The camera interface is pretty cool,
  • What we don’t need is further proof of the MeeGo and N9’s great potential.
  • now up to Nokia to capitalize on that and help MeeGo make the leap from a hot prospect to a serious source of income  (Hopefully WP leak won’t dash that too much?)

New improved Camera Interface from Nokia N9- should really be a post in itself, seems they’ve managed to cut down the number of taps necessary to get anywhere.
