Just spotted some last day tweets from a guy on twitter named @SimonLR from Toronto, Ontario, who claims to have visited a friend, who does have almighty Nokia N9, everyone is talking about now days. Though he already have mentioned that he can’t disclose much of the device as his friend must be bound by usual legal rules.
No pictures allowed. No off-device/camera samples. No dissassembly. You guys know the rules. C’mon.
But check out what he says ..
Android and iOS don’t have shit on this. Not even close5:38 AM Dec 10th via N9
The twitter client from which he tweeted takes us to the Nokia NSeries official page, which indicates a brand new twitter client other than Nokia Social. Much needed as the common opinion is “Nokia Social sucks”. And when he says that it’s a brand new experience than iOS and Android then it meant something big… real real big.
Cool!5:36 AM Dec 10th via N9
Nokia fans, save your money for the next few months5:33 AM Dec 10th via N9
This keyboard is spacious4:55 AM Dec 10th via N9
Some of the impressions as mentioned above shows that there are pretty big reasons to wait for the device itself. Definitely some impressive things are cooking somewhere.
There’s home screen widgets4:52 AM Dec 10th via Nokia N9 Widget
This particular tweet not only shows that widgets do exists in the new Home Screen UI, but if you follow the link of the twitter client source then it indicates that you will be able to tweet directly from the Home Screen Widget itself that will be available from Ovi Store. Cool!!.. interesting to note the fact that the main client and widget have two different sources, which in my opinion says that social services are built in at core levels and available through out the UI by various means. More intuitive, more integrated and more comfortable.
@davidgilson MeeGo.com Handset Ref UX is not what Nokia’s MeeGo iteration is5:39 AM Dec 10th via N9
As about more on the UI, then he already mentions that its completely different than we might have seen and as many already know, its different from the one MeeGo shows off at least till now.
Ovi Maps icon does nothing5:29 AM Dec 10th via N9
WiFi here is real spotty. I wonder if a Skype call will work…5:26 AM Dec 10th via N9
No carrier branding so far5:12 AM Dec 10th via N9
I wonder if GPS works5:03 AM Dec 10th via N9
Ovi Store doesn’t work5:00 AM Dec 10th via N9
The above tweets also shows that this is in no case a finished product as of now. In earlier tweet, he already did mentioned that its still a far story for some months at least. May be Q3 as many already guessing.
To know more about him in person, you can check out the official page of him here. As of now, he owns a Nokia N900 and also a blog named http://www.knownokia.ca/. We can’t be sure that how authentic he is, but there was a tweet by his one friend @MikeMacias saying below via MyNokiaBlog
I don’t know if @SimonLR got his hands on N9 today but don’t think he’d kid. Simon resigned from @mobile_fanatics and TMF doesn’t have it
Interesting.. isn’t it? What’s say?
