Nokia today unveiled the N9, its newest flagship smartphone and first phone running the new, Linux-based MeeGo 1.2 platform. The N9 features a 3.9-inch OLED display, 8-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, and NFC technology for contactless (tap) transactions including easy Bluetooth pairing. It will be available with either 16 or 64 GB of built-in memory for storage. The body of the N9 is made from curved glass and unibody plastic, for improved antenna performance. Although the MeeGo platform is new, Nokia has worked with partners to pre-load the N9 with a number of popular apps, including Facebook, Twitter, Skype, Angry Birds, AccuWeather, Foursquare, and Vimeo. The MeeGo 1.2 interface sports three main home screens: one for apps, another for notifications and social networks, and another for switching between activities. Swiping from any edge of the display inward summons the home screen. Pricing and release date were not announced. Nokia has traditionally focused on the Symbian platform. MeeGo was to be Nokia's next-generation platform after Symbian, but the company has already announced plans to focus on Microsoft's Windows Phone platform instead.
