Nokia just introduced the Nokia N9 at their Nokia Connection event in Singapore today. The Nokia N9 has virtually zero buttons. You unlock the phone by just double-tapping the screen. The display will be a vivid 3.9” AMOLED curved glass display encased in a unibody housing. The N9 will also have an 8 megapixel with autofocus with Carl Zeiss optics. It will also sport an NFC chip inside for wireless sharing of photos, videos or contacts. It will have 1Ghz Snapdragon processor and 1GB of RAM inside. 64GB of storage space. Wow.
There is also the new Swipe gesture that is implemented to the button-less hardware and from the looks of it, it looks very very nice. There is a single home pane with 3 simple views. Events (events by you or your friends), Applications (you installed apps) and Open Applications (stuff that is running right now)
This is looking great so far as we await for Nokia’s Windows Phone 7 devices launching before the end of 2011 (also confirmed today). I can’t also help but notice that the UI and even some of the wallpapers were kind of Zune and Metro inspired., don’t you think?
Watch the video teaser after the break.
