Customers can now grab the stunning Nokia N9 from Expansys from as little as £334.99 including delivery and including a £15 discount thanks to a Paypal code (15PAYPAL).
Expansys had cut the price of the N9 down to £370 at the end of December 2011 (ed : only the Magenta coloured version was discounted). The suggested selling price for the only Meego smartphone on the market was £455 and the next cheapest N9 costs £375.
The smartphone comes with a 3.9-inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 854x480 pixels, and is made from scratch-resistant curved glass with a polycarbonate body that allows better antenna performance.
It doesn't have any physical front-facing buttons and instead relies on a simple swiping gesture to unlock the phone and go to the home screen.
Other features include a single core Cortex A8 TI OMAP3630 clocked at 1GHz, 1GB RAM, a PowerVR SGX530 SoC, 16GB onboard storage, microSIM, an eight megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, LED flash, 720p video recording, and it runs on Meego 1.2 Harmattan.
Since Nokia has announced its allegiance to Microsoft and Windows Phone 7, Meego is no longer a major platform for Nokia. Instead, Intel and Samsung will replace it with a new environment called Tizen that will merge with Bada OS.
