Nokia has unveiled the N9, its first smartphone featuring the MeeGo mobile operating syste...Guardian UK: This new N9 is probably the best user interface that Nokia has delivered on a smartphone to date. Although, despite probably being the best smartphone that Nokia has ever launched it may easily be a “death-on-arrival“.

This is the most powerful handset ever produced by Nokia. On the front is a subtly curved 3.9″ 854 x 480 pixel AMOLED display, and on the back is an 8 megapixel camera. The operating system is MeeGo 1.2 “Harmattan”, derived in part from Nokia’s Maemo platform that we last saw in the N900 almost two years ago.

Marko Ahtisaari, head of design at Nokia said, “With the Nokia N9, we wanted to design a better way to use a phone. We reinvented the home key with a simple gesture: a swipe from the edge of the screen.”

Check out the super cool and shockingly user-friendly official website where you get to experience this new Nokia offering.
