Nokia Windows Phone gets demo: N9-a-like shows Microsoft love [Video]

Nokia's first Windows Phone handset has been revealed, and as expected it looks very similar to the N9 announced earlier this week. Demonstrated briefly by Nokia CEO Stephen Elop - who makes a brief "please turn off your cameras" plea, which obviously goes unheard - the phone adds in a dedicated camera button as Microsoft mandates for Windows Phone devices. Full video from technet.hu after the cut.

Nokia N9 Sweden Release September 23rd, Gorilla Ice Cream in Tow

Nokia N9 Sweden Release September 23rd, Gorilla Ice Cream in Tow

Yes indeed, there is still a collection of imperfect translations inside the Google translate world, even if you take the text your translating out of the webpage and jam it right in to the translator in its home. Thusly did Gorilla Glass become Gorilla Ice Cream and "delicious" stylings. Actually that's probably translated correctly, I personally use such tasty descriptors for reviews all the time. That said, there's a release to be had here, a release of information that states the Nokia N9 will be coming out September 23rd on 3 in Sweden.

Nokia N9 Android app support promised with Alien Dalvik

Nokia N9 Android app support promised with Alien Dalvik

Nokia may have flagged up the vast number of Qt apps available for the Nokia N9 (and its developer sibling, the N950), but the catalog doesn't necessarily end there. Myriad has already demonstrated its Alien Dalvik system for running unmodified Android apps on MeeGo devices, developer Steve Troughton-Smith reminded us, as seamless to the end-user as the join between the N9's display and the polycarbonate housing, and promising the same performance as native software.

Nokia N950 gets video tease

Nokia N950 gets video tease

Nokia broke a few hearts when it confirmed the N950 would only be offered to developers rather than going on general sale, leaving consumers with the keyboard-free N9, and watching mobilenet.cz's demo video we can't help but feel disappointed not to have the choice ourselves. Hinging open like the E7, the N950 scores points for great keyboard feel with well-spaced buttons.

Why Nokia’s N9 leaves me confident about Windows Phone

Why Nokia’s N9 leaves me confident about Windows Phone

Two big smartphone announcements this morning, and two considerable insights into the prospects of an ailing cellphone giant. Nokia's new N9 could, with its MeeGo OS, easily have been the Finns fiddling while Rome was burning; the technical previews of Windows Phone 7.1 Mango, meanwhile, could have shown up a platform desperately lagging behind its rivals iOS and Android. Make no mistake, today we've seen the biggest glimpse so far of Nokia's future.

Nokia N9 hands-on [Video]

Nokia N9 hands-on [Video]

Nokia has managed to grab the news cycle again, and this time around it's not with talk of delays or dreary share prices. The Nokia N9 may be the only MeeGo device expected to launch this year, but then again Apple made a pretty decent splash with one model every twelve months. Does MeeGo and the slender N9 have what it takes? We've been playing with the smartphone today, so head on past the cut for all the hands-on details.

Nokia N950 confirmed for MeeGo devs: 4-inch QWERTY slider

Nokia N950 confirmed for MeeGo devs: 4-inch QWERTY slider

Nokia's N9 certainly looks like the device to reignite complaints over the company bypassing MeeGo, but what if you're a developer and you want some physical QWERTY goodness too? The Nokia N950 developer device has also been quietly announced, a 4-inch LCD TFT 854 x 480 slider with a tilting screen, the same 1GHz OMAP3630 processor and PowerVR SGX530 graphics as the N9, and what we're guessing is a form-factor very similar to the much-leaked photo shown here.
