Nokia today announced the new Nokia N9 at Singapore. The unique feature of the new phone is the innovative design where the home key has been replaced by a simple gesture: a swipe. If you are running an app and want to go to the home menu, all you have to do is swipe from the edge of this touch screen phone.
The phone comes with three home views of the user interface and are designed to give fast access to the most important things people do with a phone, namely using apps, staying up to date with notifications and social networks, and switching between activities.
You may also never need a separate sat-nav again as the phone features a new dedicated Drive app, with free turn-by-turn drive and walk navigation with voice guidance in Maps.
The Nokia N9 is also the world's first smartphone with Dolby® Digital Plus decoding and Dolby Headphone post-processing technology.
Sharing images and videos is also easy as the phone comes fitted with the latest in wireless technology, Near Field Communication (NFC). You can also pair the phone with Bluetooth accessories like the new NFC-enabled Nokia Play 360° wireless music speaker only once, and you get a great surround sound music experience with just a tap.
Available in three colors - black, cyan, and magenta with storage options to accommodate plenty of content: 16GB and 64GB.
The Nokia N9 is scheduled to be in stores later this year.
I have been a Nokia fan most of my mobile-phone carrying life before I moved on. Maybe I will get it for my wife who refuses to buy any phone other than a Nokia and I get to play with it as well.
