Nokia’s first MeeGo phone, the N9, was recently unveiled in Singapore. disregarding the OS for a moment, i thought the phone look pretty damn sexy. really. the unibody N9 sports a 3.9-inch AMOLED display with polarized glass, a 8 megapixels camera blessed with Carl Zeiss optics with dual-LED flash, NFC support and will comes either in 16 GB or 64GB storage. running on MeeGo 1.2, the lack of hard buttons up front gives the phone a very clean and sleek feel. well, at least it looks to be the case. the phones will be available in black, pink or cornflower blue, and is slated to be available later this year but pricing is yet to be announced. i wonder how consumers will react to this phone, especially when Nokia has expressly pledged its alliance to Window’s mobile platform. catch the product intro video after the break.
