Engadget Review

The Nokia N9 delivers a double punch with gorgeous hardware and brilliant software, yet it was killed before even getting a chance to prove its worth.

It's a really neat and beautiful device with an interesting interface. Tweakers and hackers will like that it's Debian on the backend and Linux apps can be installed alongside Meego apps. At the end of the day however it suffers from a nearly dead ecosystem and a not-quite-smooth experience. It's a shame that we didn't get to see more of this platform, but it's a nice glimpse at what may have been if Nokia didn't switch exclusively to Windows Phone.

I have been using the N9 for about a year, and looking back I've been mostly happy with it. Sometimes even ecstatic (design and software), but a few times it left me wanting more (app space and battery life). If I could summarize the character of this phone in one sentence, then I'd say it's a solid phone with an iconic design and promising OS that never got a chance to shine because it came out at the wrong time.
