N9, Worth it?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I have been thinking about getting the Nokia N9. Its a very beautiful phone and I really like the OS. The problem is now is that it doesn't really have a lot of apps and there is almost no support from Nokia. Do you guys think its worth to get the phone or get something else?

If not what other phones you guys recommend?

Almost no support from Nokia? They just released a massive update, with another one already in the works.

As for dev support, I can't speak from experience or anything, but I hear it's a developer's dream for being closer to a regular linux distro than other mobile OS's.


I'm still considering whether I should get one plus an Android tablet (instead of just the Nexus or some other non-Android-phone + Android tablet combo), but two things that kill it for me are price (64GB version is ~$700, and IMO the best one to pick since it lacks expandable storage) and partial NFC support (it lacks some security stuff that would allow something like Google Wallet to work with it).

if you think that you will only be using it with only the app and functions that come with the phone and not really into the whole app craze and mobile games then it is one sexy device. But theres also the windows phone 7 Lumia which is pretty much the same thing just diff os.

There's two major differences that might be important - the Lumia doesn't have a front-facing camera or the 1700Mhz band (for T-Mobile support).
