Nokia N9 Teaser Ad Appears, 12 Megapixel Camera In Tow

Hey Wilma, this one’s for you as the Nokia N9 get’s a :52 second preview showing off the slide-out QWERTY keyboard, touchscreen and 12 megapixel camera! If there is one thing Nokia does consistently well it’s bring some of the best cameras into the mobile space. The Nokia N9 recently passed the FCC with on board support for T-Mobile AWS bands leaving hope that this device could make its way stateside. In any event, the N900 is a great example of an unlocked phone running on T-Mobile’s network that doesn’t have to be sold in stores to be lust worthy.

Some Pocketnow commenters have been quick to point out that a “number of Symbian screen elements are being used here, so we may be looking at Anna and not Meego.

     That was an awesome commercial, well done Nokia.

  • Bookhaja

     Nokia has some GREAT hardware, but I wish they would revamp symbian……I know they’re going to windows soon but I thinks it’s too little too late Android is leaving everyone else in the dust…..tisk tisk 

    • BoogieMan_Lowko666

       If Apple was to do a promotion for the iPhone 4, say “Buy One Get One Free”… believe me, they would neck and neck with Android. It’s funny how the LG G2X is $79 on Amazon. A lot of [Android phones] free as well! Why can’t Apple do this. Steve Jobs needs to get his head out of his @ss.

        $49 iPhone 3GS on AT&T’s crappy network if you want one of those simplistic fad phones.

        The value would then go down duhh. Why do you think it took so long for verizon to get an iPhone? now that its released value has gone down because its in more places iPhone was more of an exclusive in the beginning. 

  • Bimmerz

     lol David! This has “Wilma” written all over it for sure!  In fact, I am surprised that she’s not the “first” comment on this! ;o)

    • Wilma Flintstone

      Lol Bimmz. I saw the article on my phone and immediately jumped on the computer but by that time, SIMON >.> had posted and it took me a minute to dissect that video.  Accomplished Feeling?  Yes, I got it.

  • EPPS1011

    AND THAT VIDEO SHOWED WHAT AGAIN? NO ANDROID – NO DEAL 

    • BoogieMan_Lowko666

       Dude, STFU with your fragmented Android. Seriously, you guys are nothing but phuckin’ trolls.
      You morons hate anything that is not Android.

      My Nokia N8 sh!ts on anything that HTC, Samsung, LG, has. The only thing Nokia needs to work on it’s their OS, but now that they have a deal with WP7, I will  patiently be waiting. For now…. this is my next phone.

      It’s a good year for T-MO. iPhone 4S coming our way as well. I guess I will be rockin’ 2 phones.

      Nokia N9(950) (yes, the bands will work on T-Mobiles….awesome) and the iPhone 4S. ‘Bout time!

      • Wilma Flintstone

        Believe me, I understand your frustration because some people do just come into places looking to troll but just to inform you and anybody else that thinks Meego will not be Fragmented, Meego will be fragmented as well.  It’s Open Sourced and anything Open Sourced will 90% of the time be fragmented so at least that excuse cannot be used by anyone battling Android or Meego.  Companies are always looking for ways to distinguish themselves from the rest and Custom UI’s on top of Meego will be done especially once it becomes mainstream.  I agree though that this will be my next device as well as it looks awesome!!! 

        I also think though that Android has a very nice lineup coming this year.  There is no denying that Google is a real force in the phone world now.  I’m even thinking of getting the “Sensation” to hold me until this comes out.  Meego will be a force too when it comes out.  Whenever that may be.

        • BoogieMan_Lowko666

           I hear you, but after having the Nexus S…. NEVER again will I pick up an Android phone. That thing gave me so many problems and headaches…. plus, I had to so much just to save my battery life! My Nokia N8 works fine for me! It can go on for 2 1/2 days without being charged! That includes, music, some talking, and web. I love it.
          It’s funny when I see people talking shyt about Nokia. Have you seen the latest video? Nokia n8 vs. Atrix? The Nokia N8 beats it in everything expect the web. Which I could careless… cause I use my PC & ipad2 for web browsing.

          The only Android that looks nice right now is the Samsung GS2, but now that I watched this video…. no way will i be getting anything now. This N9/N950 is coming this way. I’ve been waiting a while for a phone, and that $700 sitting in the bank is ready to be spent!

        • Wilma Flintstone

           Lol!!!  I hope it isn’t $700.  I don’t have that much to spend.  Gas is high man.  Lol!!!  Anywho, the GS2 does look nice but I’m not a huge fan of Samsung due to their builds but the specs look great.  Yeah I saw the N8 vs Atrix vid as well.  I know alot of people were shocked by it.

          Hope you understand that Nokia battery lasts for 2 days because it has crappy low quality screen and useless OS…

          The nexus S gave you problems? It can do 10x more than a N8 can do, no wonder it gave you headaches, your used to old tech. There is a reason why nokia jumped in with microsoft…. theyre DYING! Nokia needs windows7 to survive.
          Nokia and the outdated OS sucks, you even use a N8 with a ipad2 for web lol. Any android phone can do web just like a PC can.
          N9:
          Dying OS
          Will it even have 4g?
          Outdated screen,
          No dual core,
          Non existent app support,
          Just like blackberry and nokia fanboys, they will follow those outdated phones until the company bankrups. 99% of people will go for Apple or Android, they are just the BEST for everything ,and only the BB/Nokia fanboys will be that 1%

        • http://www.facebook.com/PistolPat713 Michael Patrick

          You must be new to this site. There has been numerous arguements explaning why dual-core is essential for Android. Half of what you stated just sounds/is ridiculous.

    • Wilma Flintstone

       For you

  • Krieger-OG

    Anna? Merging?

  • Krieger-OG

    I meant meego?

  • Wilma Flintstone

    Thanks for the Shoutout.  Let me get ready for the explosion of Glee that is building up inside… 3, 2, 1, GO!!! YEESSSSS!!!!!!!   IT’S GETTING CLOSER!!!!!!!  CAN’T FRICKIN’ WAIT!!!!  *Runs out of the room in Happy Tears*  I literally did run out of the room screaming with glee when I read this.  OOOOOMMMMMMGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!   WOOOOOO FRICKIN HOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  FRICKITY FRICK FRICK!!!!!!!!!  MEE TO THE GO IS IN ZE HOUZ!!!!!!!!   

    That does however look like Symbian Anna but I did see some elements of Meego in it as well like the palette screen at 0:42 seconds.  I heard that the N9/950 will not be the complete Meego but a hybrid called Meego Harmattan so maybe that’s what this is.  It will be updated to the full Meego though.  Honestly, after 5mp on the camera, I’m satisfied.  I’ll take a 12mp but 5mp is enough for me.  As long as it’s Carl Zeiss, I’m fine with anything 5mp and above.  The design looks alot sleeker than I was imagining too which is a good thing in my opinion. 

    Now the dissection of ze video must be done:
    1. Some kind of toggle switch at 0.06 seconds possibly volume or USB port.
    2. FFC Confirmed at 0.07seconds. 
    3. Proximity sensor Confirmed at 0.08seconds. 
    4. Obvious 12MP camera at 0:12seconds. 
    5. May be the USB port on the top/bottom of the phone at 0:17seconds. 
    8. Ovi Store at 0:19seconds?  I thought Meego used Intel’s AppUp Store along with Meego’s own App Store?  I know you can swap apps between Symbian^3 and Meego but that is kind of odd that Ovi store is there (Also whenever they shot this video it must’ve been a few weeks ago or something because Nokia has stated that they are changing the name from Ovi to Nokia Store). 
    9. Weather App shown on the right of the Screen at 0:20seconds. 
    10. Phone and Contacts screen shown also at 0:20seconds.  Some kind of Refresh icon (possibly the browser refresh) at 0:21 seconds. 
    11. Some form of video chat at 0:22seconds. 
    12. one of the Meego live update tabs at 0:23seconds. 
    13. Day and Night mode on Camera shown with clap at 0:23seconds.  Night camera looks REALLY good as well (Major Plus for me). 
    14. HUSSSKKKKKYYYY!!!!!! at 0:24seconds.  =^-^=
    15. Meego tab screen again at 0:24seconds also. 
    16. The new Symbian Anna candy icons scroll across the screen from 0:25 – 0:27. 
    17. IM chat icon with Peace logo shown at 0:28 seconds. 
    18. On screen qwerty kepboard shown at 0:29seconds. 
    19. Possibly showing Slo-Mo Camera (Higher FPS) capability from 0:33 – 0:37seconds, obviously showing high quality camera video. 
    20. At very least 3 row qwerty keyboard at 0:37seconds. 
    21. Symbian-ish Calendar shown at 0:41 seconds (This better not be a Symbian phone BTW, you talking about someone highly pissed). 

    Nokia must know I’m exploding with anticipation waiting on their first Meego phone or anybody’s first Meego Phone to come out.  They even put my favorite dog in the video at 0:24seconds.  HUSSKKKYYYYY!!!!!!  Hurry Up Nokia and release this device!!!

      You’re not overly excited about this are you Wilma? lol  I can see you doing cart-wheels, and slamming the tequila in celebration, as well as in serious need of a heart-monitor! ;o)  Hope it comes soon – as I know you have waited a long time for this bad-boy! woot!

    • BoogieMan_Lowko666

       meego or no meego, im still going to get this. I was about to get the E7, but decided to pass. No AUTO FOCUS- NO DEAL! The keyboard on this looks amazing! I love my N8, but I MISS THE KEYBOARD. I heard ANNA looks good…. and it’s fast! Finally!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      P.S.

      I heard the Meego device was not gonna be for the public, more for the “geeks”…. like Nokia N900.

      Either way, I’m happy for you and a lot of us die-hard Nokia fans. This looks amazing.
      *high-5*

      • Wilma Flintstone

        *High-5 Back At Cha*  I hear ya with the No Auto Focus thing.  Why Nokia does that, I will never know.  They better wise up and slap Auto focus back on these things.  Yeah the Meego device will be for the techies.  I’m glad I’m a techie.  I also heard that the Meego device for the Techies will come out then they will have a Candybar version for the Public.  Either Way, if it got Meego on it, I’m getting it.

  • BoogieMan_Lowko666

    This is super sexxxy! Plus Meego, it’s a winner! Can’t wait. Since it just passed the FCC, it should be right around the corner! Hopefully!!!! Nokia is notorious for delaying phones!

    • Wilma Flintstone

      The Second Meego was stated to be on this phone, it was a winner in my book.  Will be selling my HD2 REAL SOON I’m guessing.

    • Wilma Flintstone

       Also, I got the Ice White Nokia BH-905i bluetooth headset to go along with my N9.  Can’t wait to pair them up.

  • AdrianMT4G

     I used to love Nokia until I met Android. I honestly think Nokia should continue to make the phones they make and also make some Android phones. If they were to make Android phones, I honestly believe HTC and the rest will stand no chance at all because Nokia’s are the bomb. They’ll also bring life back to themselves in the American market.

    Remember back in the day when Nokia pretty much owned the American market? Lol.. I miss them..!

    • Anonymous

      Are you smoking something that makes you day dreaming. Are you kidding me when you say Nokia will beat Samsung and HTC if they make android ??. Nokia never ever stood a chance in smartphone market. They are only good for non-smart phones. Samsung and HTC have come a long way for nokia to start day dreaming. 

      Nokia makes some of the worst quality phones these days and mostly ugly looking. They wont exist in 2 years. I was buying nothing but nokia 10 years ago because there were no real competitors. Now things have changed.

      For you to say Samsung and HTC stand no chance is nothing but the best joke I heard all day today…
      This is as good as saying, Netscape navigator is gonna kill the likes of chrome and firefox….

         You have no idea what you are talking about.  True Nokia’s like the N900, C7, X6, N8, E7 and the X7 are the best made phones on the market – PERIOD.  You couple Android & Nokia and you have a solution for a winner.

        Also, when has HTC ever made a high quality device?  They make decent products but the quality of the materials, the details in the finish & overall execution of the camera is incredibly lacking when compared to the Karl Zeiss lens in my N8.

        And just so you know, Nokia sells more phones than Samsung, Apple, HTC & Motorola combined so I don’t think they are going anywhere anytime soon although it really sucks they chose WP7 over Android.

        • AdrianMT4G

          THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

        • Respawn

          Well said sir. I love my myTouch 4G but I’d dump this or any other phone for a Nokia Android!

        • AdrianMT4G

          You and me both! 

      • AdrianMT4G

         Wow. I’m not one of these other folks in this forum who just sit by and let people come at them crazy. Did you forget this is my opinion? I’m allowed to speak my opinion whenever I want to. You might not like Nokia but I do. You honestly do not know how their android phones would turn out. Samsung isn’t the best when it comes to phones either. They might not be better than HTC but I’m pretty sure they’ll be out there. 

        Also, their phones that they make now ARE crap. I can agree with that. But nowadays, its not even about the manufacturer when it comes to android and WP7. Any manufacturer can make a phone and slap android on it and it can compete. Their phones probably wouldn’t even be crap if it weren’t for that stupid symbian crap. I only said they could keep making the phones they make now so that I wouldn’t get attacked by people like you. 

        Also, if you aren’t getting paid by HTC or Samsung, you shouldn’t be defending them. I never said I had a problem with HTC because I just so happen to love the phones they make, hence the MT4G in my name, but I feel Nokia would do a good job. So until Nokia actually makes a phone and put android on it, do not knock their hustle. I hate it when folks like you attack other people’s opinion. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. If you don’t like it, read on to the next comment like I and other folks do.

        Respect is due for Nokia and its hardware. to say that they don’t innovate then you must not know your smartphone history sir and you need to do your homework before you bash on the company that had the world market on locked down for a while and it wasn’t all dumb phones. I know Nokia had plenty of flaws but they also help shape up the smartphone market for what it is right now. 

      • AdrianMT4G

        Sorry sir but it looks as if your opinion should have stayed in your thoughts because you seem to be the only who dislikes nokia. They may not be as popular in the states anymore but they are still doing very well in other countries. They can easily make a comeback but even if they don’t, they are still doing a wonderful job and will be doing good once they start making WP7.

      • Don’tbe A Bitcchhhhh

         You should realize how ugly the phones made by HTC & Samsung are.
        Greatest examples:
        SAMSUNG – Samsung Gem, Samsung S8530, Samsung Wave, Samsung S5670, Samsung Elevate
        HTC – All back covers of their phones.

        *Although HTC mades better looking phones than Samsung. the only problem with HTC is their UGLY, I mean, SUPER UGLY, uhh, FVCKING UGLY, uhh no, TERRIBLY UGLY back covers*

        You have to see those Samsungs and compare them with the likes of Nokia N8, E7, C6-01, E6, X7, C7 and N9. I even the bet that the super old N96, N78, N97, C6-00 and X6 looks more ‘appealing’ than those of the  new Samsung phones!! CLEAN your EYES, Android-blinded motherf—-

        It’s people like you that make me wish I could manufacture and sell my own handsets. I would make the sexiest phone known to man. Who needs a reliable GPS? So what the camera looks like it shoots photos in a suana?

     Nokia + Android = Happy Americans!! 

    I honestly believe if they adopt Android and WP7, they will own the American market again. They can continue to make the phones they make now to capture everyone’s attention. HTC, Motorola, Samsung and the rest will not stand a chance at all.

  • Tortionist

     This looks like it might be a decent phone. I definitely wouldn’t mind checking it out. I’ve checked out the different smartphone OS’s available, except for this one. Android is by far the best, but i’m willing to give meego a chance. When people bash Nokia, they need to realize that Nokia has teamed up with the University of Cambridge and will be coming out with the Nano phone in around five years. It’s a mind bending concept. Nokia’s going to be on top of the smartphone heap again.

    Android is the best os for me but i never really looked up on meego it seems interesting and my oh my this phone is a sexy piece of hardware might end up trading my g2 for this just to give meego a try

     If only Nokia put Android in their beautiful hardware. Nokia without a doubt makes great hardware. Their phones are made with top notch materials, usually 95% aluminum and they know how to put it all together. Meego isn’t my OS of choice but many people swear by it. If only they went Android, they would turn the company around.
