It looks like Nokia may have started its resurgence in the smartphone arena. While it might not be as fast or as feature rich as some of its competitors, the N9 makes a bold statement in design.
TT tested the blue variation (also in pink and black) which looks fantastic and feels great in the hand.
The display is bright, responsive and runs right to the edge of the handset making swipe gestures a breeze.
Overall it’s a very sexy phone, but the internals must also be taken into account and it doesn’t quite live up to its style.
In saying that, the performance is actually quite good, handling most tasks without slowdown or lag and the camera is superb.
The major flaw of the N9 is its lack of apps, while basics like Facebook, Twitter and Angry Birds are available, the market is very bare compared to the competition.
The fact that Nokia has already dumped this OS in favour of Windows Phone means it probably won’t get the support it needs down the track, especially from app developers.
A great looking phone, but our advice is to wait for the Nokia Lumia 800, the company’s first Windows handset that has exactly the same chassis as the N9.
