Then after a year of use, I decided to jump the N9 ship.
I was afraid that Nokia couldn't pull a consistent user experience around the phone. To be frank, I was glad that wasn't the case here.
Unboxing went on very smoothly, quick guide was informative enough, obviously they've taken few pointers from a certain fruit company. The device is gorgeous, you really have to see it for yourself to determinate why all the fuzz.
The only minus was the fliphatch holding the USB port is a bit stiff to open, since you have to press a tiny bump with your fingernails. Also bear in mind that N9 uses the Micro-SIM card, so consult your carrier before starting to ruin your current normal sized SIM card with scissors.
A quick start application launches up the first time you start your phone and it guides you through the different swiping actions.
And when talking about swipe, it's hardwired to the user interface everywhere (although, applications can override this). Swipe to the left or right and you'll be taken to one of the three main views. Notifications, where all your FB, Twitter, RSS Feeds, weather data or missed call notifications are seen. Application view, this is probably the most Nokiasque view of them all, is a grid of apps. Unfortunately creating folders in this view isn't allowed yet but this's coming in next OS update. And the last but least is the multitasking view. All the programs open are displayed here and it's showing live applications, no screenshots here. I've opened more than 15 apps at the time at it doesn't seem to impact performance level that much.Read more ›

I used a SIM cutter to make a micro-SIM out of my AT&T SIM and inserted it. The out of the box experience is a vast improvement - you charge it, power it up, and you get a mini tutorial including using swipe. And from there, you really don't need a tutorial or instruction guide. Within 10 minutes I had loggied into Facebook, Skype, Twitter, set up my RSS feeds, my work and home email, changed a couple of settings like the ring tone, loaded my contacts (Ovi), gave the browser a spin (zippy and great user experience design), checked the weather (nasty snowstorm in October!), downloaded a free game from Nokia store, synched my music from iTunes, checked out Maps and Drive, and did one level of Angry Birds. All with a click on one of the icons on the main screen.
I put it down and came back, and went to my notifications screen. SMS, email, calls, Facebook updates from my friends...everything in a few scrolls. I swiped over to the open applications listing, touched and held for a few seconds, and closed everything. Then, I finally made my first call. I then realized I had been in love with this device from the first minute.Read more ›
Why did I buy this phone?
I never buy my phones without testing them in person(in a store/friends mobile). The only phone I have bought without testing is the original iPhone, which was an exceptional device. I saw a demo of Nokia N9 back in June 2011 and I was really excited about how the 'swipe' worked. If you don't know, 'Swipes' are a great way to do many things on the N9, like switch between apps, close apps,task switcher etc., I suggest you watch a video demo on youtube, since its difficult to write it down. They are a bit like multi-touch gestures on the iPhone, but totally next-gen and much more functional. I thought 'cool phone' but didn't bother to know more about it. But when the phone is released I was kinda interested to test it out, but to my disappointment the phone is nowhere sold in the United States. So, I took a risk and purchased this phone on Amazon, a bit reluctant and skeptical since this is imported from Europe. Another reason, the phone is Pentaband & Unlocked so it works on both AT&T /T-Mobile (including 3G and HSDPA), so I don't have to worry about carrier lock-ins.
Package Opening/First Impressions:
When the package arrived, I eagerly opened the box and the Phone is just *GORGEOUS*. I didn't expect it to be that beautiful and well designed.Read more ›
