The Nokia N9 may be the last of its kind but Nokia has no plans to abandon the device and its users.

I am witnessing the death of the tycoon of Mobile Phone Industry NOKIA.

"He also mentioned that the UI innovations done in the N9 will be carried over to Nokia's other products"

Hmmm, is this means that Symbian will also get the swype UI along with WM? Hope so. I love my C7 it gets better and better.

I'll still buy the N9, even a lot of people say that meego is dead; if I read correctly, the new OS is nextgen meego, so it is an evolution (something like maemo to meego); we know that n900 runs very well with meego, so why wouldn't do that N9 with tizen?
Another reason for me to stick with meego is the fact that meego is linux, so it should run almost all linux app for mobile (with some little library updates, and this is what I believe nokia will offer). In desktop area, is not a very big difference between different linux distros: application runs the same way on debin, rh, archlinux, etc; then why would be different in mobile area?

N9 is a great phone with a great OS but so far there are only bad news for Meego.

1. All funandroids are stupid? Because you buy your crap OS doesn't mean that we want it too.. What's the meaning to have all companies android..!? To make you feel better with your choise?
2. Nokia replace X,N and E series with: Symbian,MeeGo,windows.. And of course they gonna update the firmwares of ALL OSs.. And of course Symbian never let it die.. (cry because it never gonna happen..)
3. N9 is the most beautiful phone i ever see.., but i'm gonna buy Belle because i love Symbian and of course because it's a real beauty..

It doesn't really matter if Meego is dead. Once and for all, the Nokia N9 is NOT a pure Meego phone. The N9's true OS is actually Maemo 6, which is based on Qt just like Symbian Belle. Nokia calls the N9 as their Qt flagship phone. They never referred to it as a Meego phone. It is only the Meego fans that call the N9 a Meego phone.

You guys still don't get it do you. The os on the n9 was developed by nokia and nokia alone. Its not meego but maemo. It has nothing to do with intel. The intel partnership slowed things down so nokia went their own way with the n9.

This units will be Nokia's most popular units ever. If all units are sold out, Nokia is going to produce some more. Trust me, I can smell it. The 'swipe' thing will be adopted by some other Symbian model if they confirm will not be continuing the production which will be a waste.

Meego a good OS, a waste? Huh! Just let SAMSUNG, LG and HTC produce the phones just like android. The phone will sell like "HOT LAVA" not HOT CAKE (outdated).

Meego Revolution, 28 Sep 2011"Nokia may have announced that the N9 will be the last of t... moreXDA? Why? For a device with a userbase of 95,000? Gotta be kiddng.

  • Tim

And pigs will fly.

Same was promised for N900, as well as N97. The 'support' was just bug fixes, and that too months late.

You can't expect a phone with production quantity of 95,000 to be supported, can you?

Now the focus is shifted to Tizen.. which is HTML 5 based OS. Not sure where are we going from there...

continued support from nokia means one update per year. it doesn't event matter if you complain. you're only getting one update per year. that's the nokia way.

i do not risk my money to take a new lie from nokia. nokia, you must understand only a miracle can put you back on top. your strategy sucks, windows on mobile is a garbage, no one wants it. better a symbian belle with a dual core 1.5 ghz cpu and a 16 mp camera with full hd. only android can save nokia now. are you proud or stupid???
