    N9 - Swipe

    http://swipe.nokia.com

    I watched the live stream of the Nokia Connection conference at Communicasia, and was pretty impressed with the N9 there, even moreso after checking out the site. At this point I'm wondering if WP7 was even necessary, or perhaps if getting downgraded lit a fire under the MeeGo team's ***.

    Definitely top of my list of phones to get now, the interface is brilliant, along the lines of the PlayBook, but potentially even better. Qt is a nice touch as well, especially with Qt being used for S40 now too.
    The word 'Pentaband' means '5 Bands', from the Greek word 'pente' meaning '5'. For a phone to be pentaband it has to support 5 bands. If the phone has AWS support, it doesn't automatically mean that it is pentaband.

    Don't send me PMs for questions that can be asked publicly.

    I'm glad the Meego/Harmattan team went and made this outstanding even with windows phone 7 on their backs.

    I think this might have come out as a result of Nokia getting (I believe his name is) Peter Skilman, who was the webOS lead. I can see so much webOS in the UI, that I can't help but think that was the influence. Shaking things up and getting new blood really did Nokia well.
