MeeGo-based Nokia N9 smartphone Official Countdown Begins With 49 Days Until Launch

If you head for Nokia’s Swedish page, you will know what we mean. Though a launch date in September was already hinted at by carrier networks already, it is only now that the company has come out with a confirmation. We are still looking to know whether

The European carrier, Orange, has confirmed previously that the N9 would launch in Switzerland on September 19, and that lines right up with the countdown. It may then be followed by Sweden, which is reported to receive the handset on September 23. But oddly, other major European markets such as the UK, Germany, and France have yet to get confirmed dates. Pricing has also not been revealed, although it’s said to be quite affordable with an attached service plan.
The N9 features a slick 3.9-inch touchscreen display covered by Gorilla Glass on a pillow-shaped body with an 8-megapixel camera equipped with Carl Zeiss optics. Nokia’s first Windows Phone, codenamed the Sea Ray, is almost identical in form and may make its debut during an August 17 event.
However, both phones are slated to launch in Europe first, with the N9 coming out first in September followed by the Sea Ray, rumored for sometime in November.

  1. Oh boy I can't wait for Nokia N9 to get out so I can finally buy it. Love what I see about it and the MeeGo OS. I'm getting this even if it is my last Nokia phone.
