Video: The Nokia N9 was way ahead of its time

The Nokia N9 was the first and only Nokia phone to run on the revolutionary MeeGo Harmattan operating system, developed within Nokia to combat iOS and Android back in 2011 with one goal in mind: Build the perfect touchscreen operating system, and leaving hardware buttons where they belong; in the past. In this video, I take a look back at the Legendary Nokia N9 showing exactly what made this phone so ahead of its time and how it never managed to become mainstream.

Not only did the Nokia N9 have a unique operating system, but its hardware was also a huge step forward, in an era where phone manufacturers were trying hard to create unique and complicated designs. The N9’s design is an excellent example of how minimalism is timeless, and this is why the phone still looks good even today. The video goes into a lot more details so here it is:

For me, the Nokia N9 has a special place in my heart. It’s a phone I personally bought when it first came out and tried keeping it for as long as possible. After it was time to let go, moving on to any other operating system felt like a big step back. This is why in my opinion, the N9 was the best phone Nokia ever made.
