Check out the process making of the most beautiful simple smartphone, the Nokia N9.

The Nokia N9 Journey


| 2 comments ]

I've been using the new Nokia N9 for 2 weeks now, here I'm gonna share my thought of the new Nokia N9.



Nokia N9 is one of the most fascinating phone I've ever uses. Gotten blown away how intuitive and fluids the interface on this device.


Design & Hardware
Nokia N9 designed in 1-piece of poly-carbonate material. The polymer material that matches the colours will not peeling off as it will expose more of the colour when it picked scratches and scuff.



If you have toured around the Nokia N9, you will notice that there are no way for you to remove the battery or rip open to reveal the internals.

The smooth curve design with the Gorilla Glass screen slopes along the side made it much ergonomics.

The volume rocker and power/lock buttons located on the side of the phone which placed quite close and something it's very hard to differentiate them

Nokia moved to microSIM for the N9 that can be access on the top of the device and next to it is the microUSB port.



Unfortunately there is no slot for expandable memory. You can adopt a 16GB or a 64GB variant if you seeking for greater storage.

The speaker is located at the bottom of the device that surprisingly loud with only one speaker. The Dolby Digital Plus is used on the N9 made the music playback on any headphone shine.


Display
Moving to the highlight of the phone. Nokia N9 offers a very impressive 3.9-inch AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass cornering, an anti-reflective polarizer, previewed 854 x 480 resolution screen. The Nokia ClearBlack Display technology provide blacker blacks that able to present bright, punchy colour production and better viewing even under sunlight.

The curved glass has actually make the images on the screen literally floating on top of the screen.




Camera
At the back of N9 sit a large f/2.2 aperture 8-megapixel Carl Zeiss optic that can shoot beautiful photos and 720p HD video recording. You can have more control of the camera setting with the built-in camera software.





The camera is notable fast and responsive. It has tap to focus features which allows easy framing an image and as well video recording.

Sample low light photo taken with N9;

N91
N92
N93
*Click on the images for larger display


UI & Performance
N9 ties everything together with swipe, a very simple & natural gesture that everyone would adapts it easily. It actually made me doing edge swipes on others smartphones

To wake the phone all we need to do is just double tap on the screen and start swiping. It's superficial!

It has three recognisable home views arranged in a carousel, Application, Running Application which allows multitasking and events that previewed the social media feeds such as Facebook, Twitter & AP Feed.

Although N9 has only a 1Ghz single core processor and 1GB of RAM, it able to deliever transitions between homescreens, scrolling and pinch-to-zomm delectably smooth and fluid.

The pre-loaded games such as NFS: Shift, Galaxy On Fire 2, Real Golf 2011 loaded/playable smoothly with no problem. It has the enough performance to run the most current HD mobile games.


Apps
N9 is actually well stocked with the major functionality from a smartphone such as Twitter, Facebook, Skype, Flickr, Picasa, Joikuspot, IM clients (GTalk, Facebook Chat) and mail exchange support.



Apps selection is very limited for now in Nokia Store, with the Qt development framework and flexibility, apps can be ported easily between MeeGo and Symbian devices.


Navigation
The UI of Navigation for N9 has polished up. It has two navigation application "Maps" and "Drive"

Drive application is a regular car GPS that slimmed down and refined design with bigger buttons on the screen so drive can easily access/view. As for Maps application is suited for walking or to work out how to get to a place before leaving from the starting destination.

You can have offline navigation by downloading the maps for your country region and voice navigation through WiFi. It doesn't require computer to update maps.


More review of the Nokia N9 coming soon.

I believe most of you would have know what is Siri that introduced on the iPhone 4S launch couple of days ago.

This cool human-interaction alike voice assistant features has inspired Android's developer to an app which similar to Siri and named it Iris. Yeah! It's the reverse of Siri, Siri Iris, Iris Siri. Get it?



It works just the same by throwing in a question and she will talk to you on any topic ranging from Philosophy, Culture, History, Science to General conversation.

This app is still an alpha version, be expected to get some inaccurate answers. A quite interesting interactive voice assistant that does not limit just on iOS.

Give it a try by downloading it from Android Market.

Note: You need to have "Voice Search" and "TTS library" installed in your phone for iris. to work. Most of the phones have these pre-installed, if not please install them from Android market before you try iris.

Faced problem with "No Mobile Network" error/SIM Card Error/Can't detect Telco network on your Nokia N9?

This is what I've discovered on my Nokia N9 that have this problem everytime I restarted my phone.

There are actually 2 type of microsim cards provided by Telco (I'm refering to Malaysia)

The one of the left is the old type of microsim that cut into microsim size and also the early iPhone 4 simcard. On the right is the newer type of simcard that I found solved the problem.


So if you have such problem, do remember to get a replacement simcard from your telco provider.

Make sure the microsim they replaced to you is the right side one, they may replace you the old type of microsim. So no point if they replace it over and over again with the old type of microsim.
