Isn’t it heartening to note that, a device which was declared DOA by naysayers is still generating so much interest. Yes, N9 is again back to top by daily interest or daily hits registered by GSMArena site. It has also improved its rating and back in top five by user ratings as well.
This is amazing, considering the fact that it has been already more than six months since its release and in those six months we have seen likes of 808 pureview, Lumia 900, Lumia 800 from Nokia and countless dual-cores and even quad-cores from Android world.
This is a testament to the design language and intuitiveness of the Swipe OS and the mutual compatibility which perhaps can’t be repeated with any other OS. Lumia 800 and 900 have same design but the Windows Phone OS doesn’t look so much attractive with the same body.
The constant support from Nokia with updates like PR1.1 and especially PR1.2 which has brought many new and powerful features to N9 has also contributed to this renewed interest from user community. Now with Video calling, FM Radio, Camera improvements, Folders, Panorama and many more new features and apps N9 really feels like a complete device or in other words has nearly checked all the boxes.
So what next. Nokia are you listening. Bring it to India and other markets at least. Many are still waiting to hold it in their hands.
And this is right time to come up with a N9 successor with PR1.2 or PR1.3 as native software and higher specs like better resolution, bigger or same screen , dual-core, 12 MP camera and 1080 P video recording.
With kind of buzz N9 is generating, if the pricing of new device is kept something like we are seeing for Lumia 900, you have a major hit device on your hand.
