You can see that how customizable even core settings like Double tap to unlock are. It was interesting to see the basics like remaining time for a full charge and Memory usages stats on board even though third party apps are here to do the same in more detailed ways.

The above is Developer Mode settings of Nokia N9 means no flashing required for rooting, you can root your device just by changing a setting. Do you think that there is any other mobile OS that much open for consumer?

A Cool in-device Help Document Application

Help documents app would be one of those apps that experienced users hardly see or use though it might be crucial for those who are new to the smartphone experience. Nokia N9 help documents app does a kind of perfect job in this regard with nice visuals and details

As you can see in the first screenshot, the help documents not only provides you pictures and text, but provides you videos to help you on UI interaction visually. I am really not sure that I have seen such a help system with videos on any platform till date.

Firmware\Software\Application updates

Like other Nokia devices, Nokia N9 also supports Over The Air Updates that includes Firmware updates, Software updates and Application updates.

It was actually a big joy for me to get the big PR1.1 update when I was reviewing Nokia N9.

  1. one question, how did you change the clock background to black?
    Have always been trying to find out, because i read the review on theverge and they managed to changed even the calendar to a black background..

  2. Brother from where did you get this in India (I guess you are from India)…is there anyway I can get this device from anywhere in India…desperately need one…please tell

          1. Wow .N900 now ready for India. Of course it shloud be as silence is broken, Meego would not be commercially launched for N900. So Nokia don’t want to let its smartphone sales figures come down & since latest info on N900 will not help sales figures to move up in Europe & elsewhere, the better option is to follow the imprints of Apple I.e. Launch soon going to be obselete products in Indian Market.Thank you Nokia. This time luckily I wasn’t expecting anything else.

  3. you nailed it Nitish .. greatest phone ever made .. period .. and your review does give N9 a justice that it need .. no other phone should have a review of this length and attention to detail except N9 😀 ..

    this phone has saved me from all dreadful devotion given to all the dreadful ecosystem .. you won’t believe how much I’ve spent buying apps from apple appstore without even executing half of it .. and come to think of it, I did that because I can’t never find satisfaction or sense of completeness with my last phone in its original form ..

    but N9 was different .. it has everything that I ever need in a timeless beautiful form, and already I felt a sense of completeness in one aspect of my life .. I think this is the phone that I’m going to kept forever while I’m alive even if it is can’t no longer be used (I always sold my old phone/trade in when buying new phone).. seriously, I am that much of fan ..

  4. Nitish Kumar there some inconsistency in your review.

    1. .deb files you can install it as simple as enabled 3rd party installation then run file manager and run it directly no need terminal
    2. soft reset the cirulating arrow doesnt mean brick it means its erasing or in progress. in the progress even u turn on and off it will still process u just need wait until it reboot itself means completed
    or its that your fren

    3. Account Authentication Broken: fixed in PR 1.1

    1. 1. Agree that the same can be done with File Manager itself but I was not sure that if it picks supporting files as well. Didn’t happened in case of VLC with me.

      2. I waited more than 20 mins but nothing happened and then review unit was to go back, so couldn’t check.

      3. My unit had PR1.1 only as I got the update before the review and it actually got broken after the update only.

  5. hi nithish… Good job… My doubt is if i buy this n9 from singapore .. Whether i will get software update in india or not through air or not.. Pls mail me

  6. Your “issue” number 3 is not an issue at all.
    This is N9 behaviour – and it is not “bricked” as you said.

    You just have to be patient and wait 10-15 minutes.

  7. I could barely make it through the first page of this review, as the English is absolutely terrible. This trend continues through the rest of your site as well. I would recommend doing some major editing.

    1. The noise-cancellation microphone is next to the camera flash – a 0.5mm hole. The in-device instructions indicate you shouldn’t cover this location during a call if you enable noise-cancellation.

  8. Maybe I missed it but can you :pause/play/forward/back the music player on the included earphones button? Is there a volume control too?

  9. The Nokia Lumia 800 Windows Phone smartphone is a power packed product with many amazing features like an 8 MP Camera, Microsoft Windows 7.5 OS, a 1.4 GHz processor with 512 MB RAM, People Hub, XBOX gaming, among other things. But one feature that takes the cake here is Nokia Drive. Nokia Drive is a GPS app with a voice guided turn-by-turn navigation system which helps you when you are out travelling. And the best bit about it is that it is completely free!

  10. Nokia Drive also saves your search history so that the user can easily get traffic updates to their regular commutes. This also means you can quite easily select any of your previous destinations. The fact that Nokia Drive has a database of over 100 countries and that it can be used offline as well, is something that will really click with the viewers.

  11. Your article has preovn useful to me. It’s very informative and you are obviously very knowledgeable in this area. You have opened my eyes to varying views on this topic with interesting and solid content.The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.Interesting website, i read it but i still have a few questions. shoot me an email and we will talk more becasue i may have an interesting idea for you.

  12. This will get you traffic to your site and make money.
    A VPN creates an encrypted connection to a third-party server, and all your
    Internet traffic is routed through that server. Daily, even hourly,
    businesses can see how many individuals clicked on their ads
    and the traffic that is being driven to their website.

  13. Understanding both advantages and disadvantages are important in order to choose the best internet marketing strategy.
    However Yahoo marketing and other pay per click search engines
    offer some excellent traffic at a more reasonable price.
    Daily, even hourly, businesses can see how many individuals
    clicked on their ads and the traffic that is being
    driven to their website.

  14. The backend part of your company supports these profit centers.

    As the culture of internet slang grew, it took on new origins from pop culture or video games and television.
    It’s probably some mix of the two, so I have to give him props for
    not going too far in either direction.

  15. They are a very good way to promote business service. In addition, many of the words used started to take on
    slightly different meanings, depending on the context in which they are used.
    It’s probably some mix of the two, so I have to give
    him props for not going too far in either direction.

  16. Hello, I think your site might be having browser
    compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it
    has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads
    up! Other then that, awesome blog!
