Nokia N9 successor on roadmap?

| October 25, 2011 | 58 Replies

Very quickly again (I’m simultaneously getting dressed to leave as well as blogging).

There’s rumours of a Nokia N9 successor? A couple of days ago, jipee tipped us that a Finnish blogger mentions something about a N9 successor on the roadmaps. So N9 is really not the last? What with all N9 reviewers praising the N9 and mourning it’s apparent lack of future, hopefully there’s a happy ending for it with the possibility of a continuation at Nokia?

In the Finnish IT magazine Tietokone (Computer) blogger Tero Lehto (Apple fan) reviews the N9 and hints that there could be a N9 successor:

“Toisaalta olen yllättäen kuullut jo kahdenkin läheltä Nokiaa seuraavan operaattori- ja tukkuri-ihmisen väitteen, että Nokia N9:n seuraaja eli uusikin MeeGo-laite voisi olla vielä Nokian roadmapissa. En tiedä, mistä käsitys on syntynyt, joten suhtaudun siihen varauksella.”


“On the other hand I have to my suprise heard claims by two sources closely working with Nokia at an operator and a wholesaler, that there is a N9 successor in the Nokia roadmap. I dont know, what is the source of this perception, therefore I am sceptical about it”

Nokia’s communication manager confirms that there has been problems related to the exchange sync and Nokia is bringing an update to fix it.


Another source comments of Tero Lehto (cheers StefanP). They note whilst MeeGo might be dead (or folded into Tizen) Maemo is not (oh heck what was the point of it all, huh? They should have just stuck with Maemo all along, darn seductive Intel partnership.

    Hoping that it is true, though not that confident it will come. I don’t know the whole agreement between Microsoft and Nokia’s partnership, but making a high-end successor of N9 might have a conflict in agreement.
    Since Nokia stopped developing Meego, WP is the future mobile OS for Nokia (WP8 to be specific). I believe that running same OS on different devices is the future (computers and smartphones).
    Meltemi is the one that I think Nokia Conversations is pointing out ‘the next N9’.
    If Nokia will make an N9 high-end smartphone successor, I would like it to have at least 12mpx camera with at least same sensor of N9, bigger ram,memory card slot, hdmi port, usb otg, fm transmitter (run the fm even without headset), and at least 1800mah battery. Running AM and analog/digital tv will be a great bonus for me. These are what I am looking for in a smartphone. I don’t care if it will be bulkier than N9, at least I’ll get what I want.I’ll love it to see in a unibody as well but can replace battery like on N8.
