Nokia's not going to be supporting MeeGo for long. The only reason the N9 is being introduced today is because it was simply too far along in the pipeline to outright kill. And also, it's beautiful. The grid of icons will be immediately familiar with Android and iOS users, and the 116.45- x 61.2- x 7.6-12.1mm frame will make just about anyone do a double take. Other features include a microSIM slot, GPS, 3.5mm AV adapter, a proximity sensor, Wi-Fi, ambient light sensor, compass, an NFC chip, quad-band GSM and penta-band WCDMA radios and an 8MP camera sensor.
Nokia's not giving out any sort of pricing or release details yet, but we suspect it won't be cheap. And with an outfit like that, why should we expect it to be?
