Nokia, Shrinking its N9 Launch Plan

Written on August 14, 2011 by Lulu

Comments Off

Nokia had cut down the number of countries included to the launch plans of its MeeGo handset, the Nokia N9.

Regardless of the significant marketing efforts that was given by Nokia for the MeeGo flagship handset, the upcoming N9, the company appears to be shrinking its launch plans by decreasing the number of included countries. After declaring that there is no plan to bring the N9 to the US or the UK, the Nokia also told MobiFlip that the device will not be heading to Germany, Austria or Switzerland.

The said announcement casted doubt on Nokia’s launch plans for the N9. It is said that the device will be released in a wider range of markets. But it is now unclear if how many and which countries will be able to have the N9 through official channels, even though the Swedish page had provided a launch countdown.

For customers residing in North America who is willing to pay a premium for an unlocked N9, the said handset is said to support AT&T and T-Mobile in the US along with several Canadian carriers.

ASUS X101 Aims Linux Tablet Alternative

Written on August 05, 2011 by Japhet Writ

ASUS's Eee PC X101 will serve as a Linux tablet alternative despite bearing netbook hallmarks.

According to ASUS’ blog post, its Eee PC X101 will serve as an alternative to small laptops despite bearing the hallmark of a netbook. First, at 0.69 inches thin and two pounds in weight, it will be thinner and lighter than a traditional netbook. Second, it runs MeeGo Linux instead of Windows 7. While the latter has been the predominant OS for netbooks over the past few years, MeeGo Linux is more suited to ultrasmall designs which typically doesn’t have the horsepower to run the Microsoft OS efficiently.

Third, the ASUS Eee PC X101 does not have Ethernet ports and VGA.

Nokia N9 Teaser Ad Appears! Meego will be the OS for this baby!

Nokia is still on the move with MeeGo OS despite with the partnership with Microsoft (Windows Phone 7) and undying OS of Symbian. On the video we see glimpses of the upcoming MeeGo-powered Nokia N9 QWERTY slider mobile phone, but on several shots of the screens of Nokia N9, we think it is a Symbian OS.
