N9Apps: MeeTor

Just noticed this today (although this post is scheduled until later in the week). MeeTor has appeared in the Nokia Store. It is the first BitTorrent client (that I am aware of) for the Nokia N9.

He told us back in JANUARY 2011, that the newly designed Nokia N9 was the, ” sexiest mobile ever done. It’s […]

  Again, like before these out of stock notifications may not just be due to the handset popularity but may be due to initial stock numbers perhaps being low. Who knows. Either way, enough people have gone and bought the blue Nokia Lumia 800 at Vodafone for it to be out of stock there. This […]
