We were afraid that the Nokia N9 wouldn’t officially hit the US, but we were wrong. Amazon USA now actually has them in stock at their warehouse. If you’re a Prime member, you can even get it the next day for $3.99 shipping. Price for the Nokia N9 is currently $649.99, which is a couple of hundred dollars cheaper than a couple of weeks ago. If you’re patient, I’m sure it’ll go down a little more.
The timing is perfect since the Nokia N9 just received a firmware update to PR1.1. This update includes
- NFC tag reading to instantly interact with NFC tags
- Music controls on lock screen
- Photo and video shooting with color filters: black & white, sepia, vivid, negative, solarize
- More powerful multitasking with improved memory handling
- Swype for fast typing
- Faster MfE synch, synchronizing only active folders
- Noice cancellation reduces background noise so that your friends hear you better
- Close apps easily with swiping down, this now on by default
- New indicators for standby screen like charging and calendar
Anyone in the US grabbing a Nokia N9?
