The evil doppelganger of the N9 has finally made its appearance in Malaysia. The love child of Stephen Elop. Whatever you want to call it. Here, I shall share my occasionally politically incorrect views on the Lumia 800. Be warned that I am biased against anything from the loins of Redmond in general.
So, a couple of days ago, I received an invite through a “proxy” that allowed me to infiltrate the tightly guarded ranks of Nokia Malaysia during their “preview” of the Lumia 710 & 800 in Kuala Lumpur. At this launch, my main objective was to eat pastries – as can be seen below.
I am now grinning like a retard. Here are some pictures for you to digest while I continue grinning like a retard for the rest of the day. A quick summary: The Nokia N9 comes with: Nokia N9 Wired headset Charger (USB header) USB data/charging cable strange pieces of paper with words on them The […]
I made full payment for my 64GB Nokia N9 today at the Nokia Store in Gardens, Mid Valley. According to the staff there, they “should” receive stock by then – and customers who have either paid a deposit (or paid in full) will be given priority for the device. A nice plus point is that […]
Quick and dirty facts: available early October according to Nokia Malaysia 16GB @ RM1799 (USD590), 64GB @ RM2088 (USD685) Guess what… There’s no other interesting information unveiled.

There will apparently be a “preview” to the Nokia N9 in Malaysia coming soon organized by Nokia Malaysia and their new PR company Fleishman. I am, unfortunately, not invited. On the bright side, this likely means the N9 will be launched on time in Malaysia (August/September).
Just for the record, the N900 which was the last Maemo device (MeeGo powering the N9 is a descendant of Maemo) was released in September of 2009. It was announced earlier, but the first batches reached stores and pre-order customers in September 2009. Malaysia finally received its first batch of N900 in March 2010, a […]

Trawling through lots of random stuff, I’ve come across this gem – could easily be a snazzy Photoshop job, but one can hope right? It appears to be very similar to what has been seen of the “unidentified” phone that recently became famous thanks to a YouTube video. Also recently found is this – apparently […]
