Nokia announces MeeGo based N9 [specs and video]

Here we are finally, Nokia just killed all the anticipation, by announcing it's Nokia N9 based on the MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan. Now, we know Nokia has chosen WP7 as it's primary smartphone, but Stephen Elop had promised that it will be releasing a MeeGo based phone and so far it doesn't seem like the phone was released just to keep up the promise. It's made up of pretty good stuff and also the UI looks beautiful.


Here are the specs of the phone:
Dimensions would be 116.5 x 61.2 x 12.1 mm, 76 cc and weighing 135 g


DISPLAY:
Type AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors
Size 480 x 854 pixels, 3.9 inches
- Gorilla glass display
- Anti-glare polariser
- Multi-touch input method
- Proximity sensor for auto turn-off
- Accelerometer sensor for UI auto-rotate

It'll sport a 1GHz Cortex A8 CPU, PowerVR SGX530 GPU. Camera will be an 8 MP, 3264x2448 pixels with Carl Zeiss optics, autofocus, dual LED flash.



You might say the mobile OS sector is getting a little crowded now. But if it's really worth it, then MeeGo surely deserves a good chance. Critics say that this might be the one and only MeeGo phone that will be released by Nokia, ever. That may possibly be the case, but if Nokia decides to show interest in MeeGo, it's still not too late But anyway it gives developers a guinea pig. Apps built on the Qt SDK 1.1.2 will be compatible; HTML5 support is built in as well.
