Nokia N9 now shipping, price starts at Php28.5k

Nokia has just posted a press release stating that the Meego-powered Nokia N9 has started shipping to stores and customers who pre-ordered it. While the shipments does not yet include the Philippines, we’re hoping it will be a matter of weeks (if not a month) before we’d see the N9 hitting local stores.

We got a good look at the Nokia N9 back in June during its announcement in Singapore. See our coverage here.

    Wow! Nokia N9 pinag-uusapan tapos mapupunta sa Android o Apple. Anong klaseng magulang ba meron ang mga ito? Nakakahiyang isipin na ang mga Pinoy ngayon eh parang di na Pinoy. Halos lahat ng attitude eh yung tipong makahirit lang. Haaayyyy…

  2. Hi Sir Yuga:

    Is it true that N9 is not anymore coming to the Philippines because of lack of product codes???
    I saw this posted on Facebook by the Nokia N8 Philippine User page. Please confirm…

    This is such a disapointment knowing that Meego Harmattan looks like a very promising OS even though Meego is already dead.

    Like many, I’ve been keeping tabs on the progress of the N9. Today, I dropped by at Nokia MOA and asked the sales rep regarding the lauch of Nokia N9 in the Philippines. As it turns out, we all have to wait until January of next year. This is because of the “market by market” approach of the sale of N9.
    It’s quite disappointing since all of our neighbours in SEA are getting it before the year ends.

    • Wah! Next year? Next year pa? Ngayon lang ako ngka-gusto ng ganito sa isang cellphone. Hindi ako ganito ka-enamored sa iPhone or sa Android devices… Wah grabe torture! N9!!!

  4. No matter what other people would say with this phone and it’s platform, I really fell in love with just how fast it is on that sexy hardware, even though it has older internals compared to iPhone/android devices, pero just look at that, ang bilis ang intuitive grabe. Tsaka for sure someone out there would port android apps since it’s linux based din naman ;) . And Tizen is also being develop so I think it’s not doomed after all ayt?

  5. still waiting for this phone. Uh!

  6. I bought mine yesterday in sm city annex bldg. I got the white 64GB for P27,700.
