One of the many details omitted from the Nokia N9’s launch was a definitive release. date. Speculations suggest September. Elop at that leaked Sea-Ray video mentioned “we have so much to deliver and launch…N9 launching BY the end of the year”.
One of the things Elop said Nokia will try to avoid is long waits after launches. I’m not sure if this was meant to be for all devices or just Windows Phone. X7/E6 has taken two months, quite a while but remarkably faster than, say, N8 or E7 (tough C6-01 was ready after 1 month)
Sonera, one of the main networks/carriers in Finland have listed the Nokia N9 as coming ‘soon’ to their portfolio. Soon is very subjective and means quite little to jaded Nokia fans (and their ‘coming soon’ PR2.0). Could we see N9 as soon as August? (It’s in Finnish so there might be a translation error)
Again, you can check here for availability:
Cheers for the tip, Eero.
