Nokia N9 “all-screen” smartphone available in New Zealand exclusively through Vodafone
The Nokia N9, which was announced in New Zealand at the end of June, will be sold exclusively through Vodafone.

The company's new high-end smartphone, available in October 2011, will come in black with a RRP of NZD$999.

Vodafone’s director of sales, Grant Hopkins, said, “Vodafone are pleased to be able to offer the Nokia N9 exclusively to their customers. It’s great to add the N9, with its sleek design and simple operation, to the Vodafone smartphone range.”

The Nokia N9 is all about design and simplicity. It features a 3.9-inch AMOLED panel with a ClearBlack display, which makes the dark bits darker and the colours much more vivid.

The casing is made from material commonly used in ice hockey helmets and the paint is bled right through the material so the colour remains even if you scratch it. The material also allows for a superior antenna performance which means better reception, better voice quality, fewer dropped calls and a higher GPS accuracy.

The Nokia N9 “all-screen” design means there is no physical home button. Instead, it has touch and swipe gestures which lets you navigate around the homescreen.

The user interface is designed around the things people typically do the most – use apps, socialise and multitask. There are three homescreens, which are arranged in a carousel. The first homescreen is for accessing your apps; the second for social networking, calling, texting and calendar; and the final screen shows which applications are open. The screen can be pinched or zoomed to show either four or nine open app icons.

The Nokia N9 also comes with an 8-megapixel autofocus camera with Carl Zeiss optics, wide-angle lens, HD video capture and large lens aperture for greater performance even in lowlight conditions. It is also NFC-enabled, which allows the user to share images and videos between devices by simply touching them together.

Rounding the package is Nokia’s free turn-by-turn drive and walk navigation with voice guidance and Nokia Store, which gives you access to the apps you need.
