Nokia N9, the first and only MeeGo-based mobile phone from Nokia, is expected to become available for purchase in the UK in the not-too-distant future, a retailer in the country has just announced.
The guys over at Mobile Fun have confirmed last week that they were planning on bringing the Nokia N9 smartphone to the UK market, and they said that this should happen in the near future.
“Here at Mobile Fun, we’re happy to say that we will be offering the handset, unlocked and sim free, in the very near future,” the retailer notes in a blog post.
The Nokia N9 was unveiled to the world a few months ago with a large 3.9" AMOLED screen and an all touch design, as well as with the MeeGo platform on board, but the UK was not among the countries listed as expected to receive the device.
However, the retailer already lists the Nokia N9 on its website, and those interested in the device can head over to make pre-orders for it.
Although the release date for the mobile phone is not known at the moment, we do know the price tag the SIM free Nokia N9 should feature when available, namely £519.95, VAT included.
“Nokia N9 is so easy to use it doesn't need any menu buttons. In any app, swiping from any edge takes you home – so you can move easily between your activities,” the retailer notes.
“The hardware and software design complement each other beautifully – the curved edges of the glass help make the swipe motion smooth and effortless.”
Nokia might not be planning the direct marketing of Nokia N9 on the UK market, but it seems that enthusiasts will still be able to purchase the device.
Those who would like to reserve a MeeGo-based Nokia N9 before it becomes available in the UK should head over to Mobile Fun here today.
