Video: 30 minutes with MeeGo-Harmattan on Nokia N950

| August 12, 2011 | 50 Replies

Here is a half an hour long hands on with the Nokia N950 MeeGo-Harmattan Dev Phone.

Though this isn’t the consumer handset, this does show much of what you can expect from the upcoming N9 (hopefully even more polished as I’m not sure if the Developer edition is as up to date as N9 – hence partly why things look slightly smoother/faster in N9 demoes)

This video is by  from and as you can guess is in French.

I’ve sort of indexed the contents of this video. There may be bits that I’ve missed out.


  • 02:40 – Pin lock page
  • 03:50 – Drop down status bar. A maemo thing to have quick status options (well before Android btw)
  • 05:30 – Dialler. Seen before, nice touch that numbers remain in one line, just the font gets smaller. I already miss Symbian Smart dialler but I do like how easy phone book is to manage.
  • Noticing tiny lags now and again
  • 06:37 – in call screen
  • 06:57 – smart search
  • 07:30 – browser
  • 09:30 – adding bookmark as an app
  • 09:50 – Multitasking
  • 11:30 – Messaging. This looks great.
  • 12:40 – Email
  • 12:25 – Calendar
  • 14:48 – Camera
  • 19:07 – Gallery
  • 20:17 – Music Player
  • 22:38 – Maps
  • 25:00 – Calculator
  • 25:17 –  Documents – I like how you can have an overview of pages to jump between them.
  • 25:33 – Notes
