Maps, Store and Applications
Nokia N9 is also equipped with Nokia Maps (I have Maps version 4.1.40 with map data version: 0.2.43.117), and also Drive app. Both work great.
Applications are available from Nokia Store. There are not many applications supported yet. But, I see new applications are being added there. Downloading application from the Store is easy. I can login to my existing Nokia accounts. I’m expecting more applications to be available here, of course.
There are some pre-installed popular applications like Twitter, Facebook and also Skype. They does not have reach features, but it works. Gravity for Symbian really beats Twitter native apps on Nokia N9. Some basic features are included. It’s not superb and rich-feature, but it works. For the interface, it blends nicely with phone design as complete product.
Notes and Summary
Nokia N9 has a good and stylish design. It’s probably the simplest and most modern phone designed by Nokia so far. Running multiple applications is also enjoyable. It has a good hardware so that I can expect speed and performance. Even it comes with a new different approach to work with — by swipping and tapping, it’s still easy to use. This is something new, but I believe that it’s easy to adapt. I will try to share more about detailed features, problems, and opinions about this products in my upcoming posts.
