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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
