@jenjaman tweeted us his video, 23 minutes of Nokia N9 comparison with the Nokia Lumia 800. This might be familiar as this was filmed a while ago in Russian. Now it’s in English (Though I can’t seem to find our last post on it, or the video either)

Anyway, here’s the English version. He’s done a very excellent job again. It’s pretty fair on both sides, with preferences changing as each does certain things ‘better’ than the other. As a note, the one that is ‘best’ is the one that is ‘best for you’. Which ever one suits your needs better, it’s not something set in stone.

  • Look at the menu. App grid vs tiles (and list)
  • Notification pages vs people hub
  • Dialler
  • Email
  • Nokia Store vs Market Place
  • Music Player vs Zune
  • Maps
  • Documents vs Office
  • Screen brightness
  • Multitasking vs ‘multitasking’
