Nokia has been battered relentlessly by a barrage of Android smartphones and of course the iPhone. They’re trying to fight back by partnering with Windows for 2012 but that’s still at least 6 months into the future. That’s why it was a pleasant surprise to find out that they just launched that Nokia N9 in Nokia Connect at Singapore. The Nokia N9 is a full touchscreen phone powered by Meego 1.2 Harmattan and a more modern user interface. Here’s what it looks like:
What about the specs? The Nokia N9 has a 3.9″ AMOLED screen (854×480 pixels), 1GHz CPU, 1GB RAM, 8MP autofocus camera (double LED flash), and you can go with either a 16GB or 64GB model. It can also record 720p video at 30fps.
Nokia is putting the focus on the “swipe motion” for the product. Apparently there are no buttons on this thing. You just swipe for everything including waking it up from sleep and unlocking it.

How much and when? No details yet for the Philippines but they did say it would be released before the end of this year.
