All right, so by now most of you are aware and seen the official pictures or promotional video of Nokia’s latest Smartphone baby – Nokia N9 or so called “Nokia’s MeeGo Phone”. But wait – This is not strictly MeeGo. It’s an amalgamation of the two mobile platforms – Meego and Maemo mobile operating systems. Nokia likes to address this “The outcome of Meego efforts.”

If one closely monitors the official specs sheet, it’s mentioned as “Meego 1.2 Harmattam.” Interestingly, Harmattan is a platform that evolved out of Maemo. And the software of N9 has been developed on Nokia’s Qt developers toolkit, so it’s also being billed to developers as “Qt phone.” – Rather. Anyhow, this is not going to create much impact on end users, so not much buzz about this now – until start hearing complaints about such arrangements.

But, Why 3.9 inch screen again? Market has been moved upside. And if Nokia N9 has anything to challenge enterprise level smartphones ( which are above price range of $400) then surely this aspect will hit back Nokia as most of latest phones are equipped with minimum 4.2 inch screen.

I know, phone is still not widely available for any independent hands-on reviews, so it won’t be fair enough to discount its ranking now. But, here is an official hands-on preview of Nokia N9 which will help many of us to understand the ‘gaze’ of new smartphone entrant:

Furthermore, its being expected that Nokia N9 will be available in the market sometime later in the year but as per Forbes, N9 can be available as soon as next month. Nokia CEO Stephen Elop also clarified that Nokia doesn’t have any immediate plans to bring out any MeeGo tablet soon.
