The new Nokia N9

Nokia recently announced a new N-series Phone, the N9.

You won't find a Homebutton on it anymore and will probably be running Meego (Linux).
It's made out of one solid polycarbonate body, precision manufactured, as they say. The screen is slightly curved and seems to be around  3,8" or 4". Here's a video of the UI in action:

As you can see, it performs rather well overall, but the maps in 3D seem to lag a little.

The absence of a main homescreen is something I personally would have to get used to first, but I do like the feature of just swiping an application away.

With the N9 running Linux, there's a chance that it will be hacked to run Android too!

There's no infop on the hardware specs yet, but I'm hoping it's not 680Mhz ARM... again...

A dualcore would be great for better multitasking, gaming and general performance.

Here's a video with Marko Ahtisaari on the N9:

General Update

Hey guys,

I haven't made any posts lately, it's been quite a bit since my last one.

But who can blame me, with a surge of new, enjoyable games coming out?

Portal 2 has kept me busy, what with the multiplayer addition adding more hours of gameplay.
Fable 3 is fun, but after becoming King/Queen there's not much to do, except if you know where all the quests and hidden stuff is.

The Witcher 2 is a "will buy" game, will be getting that in the near future. It looks well made with an intriguing story, so it should be worth it!

Making (or composing) music is another thing I have been trying my hand at, so far only small little loops, but it's really fun to do. FL Studio is the program I'm using at the moment, it's fantastic.

While browsing the web I came across a service named Duolingo.
