    Nokia N9 Vs Samsung Galaxy SII Vs Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc Vs Apple iPhone 4 Vs HP Pre 3

    Nokia N9 Vs Samsung Galaxy SII Vs Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc Vs Apple iPhone 4 Vs HP Pre 3 - Recombu

    By Hannah Bouckley on Friday, 24th June 2011

    With a gorgeous design and screen showcasing MeeGo with its swipe controls, the Nokia N9 is one of the most important Ė and exciting - Nokia releases in a long time.

    Although itís not out until later in the year, it will be up against some pretty stiff competition from a smartphone market that is growing rapidly and currently contains some excellent handsets. Its main rivals in the mid/high end market are the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc and forthcoming HP Pre 3. Plus of course we canít really ignore the continuing success of the Apple iPhone 4 and the Samsung Galaxy SII.

    Weíll bring you a full, in-depth test when we get all the phones together, but hereís how the specs stack up.

    N9 wins. (to me anyway)

    I love WebOS but I love the simplicity of Meego Harmattan interface more, along with the N9's 8 mp camera, 12 mm thickness, polycarbonite back, and curved screen.

    Havent seen many MeeGo clips yet but Nokia always produces solid hardware.

    Too early to say but I like the user-friendliness in webOS.

    MeeGo would be able to survive if it had built in Dalvik VM for android apps, because the OS is mind-blowing but the problem is the lack of software for it

    My impressions? We'll see if Apple considers them worth the time to sue. Nokia has obviously borrowed as much from the iPhone as Samsung, lol.

    Other than this new Nokia phone being incredibly ugly and ripping off as many iPhone design components as what recently got Samsung sued, I didn't see anything new in this article other than some lack of technology comprehension.

    I haven't found similarities between N9 and iPhone.

    I'm planning on getting the Galaxy S2 as long as it's gigantic screen isn't too large.

    Every mention of the pre3 seemed filled with disdain. e.g., well its processor its really shocking it isn't dual core, but that's okay because typical pre3 users only want e-mail and web. really? how do you know what a typical user is of a phone that hasn't come out yet? that would be the kind of comment you'd find in a roundup of laptops with a netbook thrown in.

    It seems more than a tad biased (for the nokia in particular).

    I followed a Maemo board before the Elopcalypse at Nokia, and it was exactly the same thing - all the Nokia devices were dissed and compared to other manufacturer's "better" devices. I don't think you can find any message board or forum where some vocal people aren't satisfied with the company's current offerings. It might also have something to do with the fact that there is always "hotter" hardware announced when a product hits the market, so you can compare the product to it and call it outdated

    It looks like a larger iPod Nano (second generation to me anyways)
    The apps are lined up almost identically as the iPods/iPhone without the dock at the bottom, which is I guess you could call the home screen. The video they have on their website describes it as the first home screen. They try to make it every page like a home screen to increase its beauty blah blah blah. I wont go into it.

    Funny how they are advertising swiping though. Though its not quite the same, WebOS users have been doing that since 2009.

    MeeGo does look pretty freakin sweet though, i'll admit that.

    No to mention app icons like Phone, Messaging, Settings, etc. are obviously borrowed almost directly from iOS, which was one of Apple's complaints against Samsung.
