Nokia N950 set to be the first MeeGo mobile: End of the road for Nokia N9?

March 1, 2011, By Shawn Wagnon

The N9 looked like a very impressive handset with the rumored 1.2GHz processor, 768MB of RAM and a 12-megapixel camera and more. Now it seems like this much talked about and highly anticipated handset will never be out in the open. At the recent developer’s conference Nokia made it clear that the N950 will be the first MeeGo mobile that they will be able to get their hands on.

That is a bit disappointing considering we were really looking forward to seeing the N9 become the flagship mobile of Nokia. There were even reports doing rounds that it would be on display at the Mobile World Congress 2011. But with Nokia making it very clear that its MeeGo will be out on N950, we might as well have witnessed the death of N9.

Even the N950 at this point seems like a handset destined to spend a lot of time in the making and then in the hands of app developers before it could ever be available for public. The current launch date is being stated as late 2011, but we could be well into 2012 before that happens. The conference also made it very clear to developers that they will have to make their apps for the WP7 platform if they wish to continue on Nokia devices…
