Nokia N9 has started to dip its fingers in the android water. NITDroid, which is an independent developer has now come up with a release that aims to satisfy its customers to the fullest. Although it is not a full release yet, currently termed as “Project Mayhem”, but it aims to bring Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system to Nokia N9. N9 is considered to be a good match with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as it lacks capacitive front buttons and has an exciting 3.9 inches AMOLED touchscreen display with 854 x 480 pixel resolution.
The screen is build using a scratch-resistant gorilla glass technology. This phone has been inspired from Lumia 800 and Lumia 900 which are using Windows platform and have turned many of the fans against the brand. Since the Nokia N9 is having an open-source operating system known as Meego, there are comparatively lesser issues attached to the change of the operating system.
Though the developers have managed to get the Android OS up and running on the N9, there are still some issues remaining and need to be solved as this device was never designed for Android. As far as the screen is concerned, it works perfectly – brightness, sleeping, and rotation to landscape mode are included too. Bluetooth and USB connectivity also works flawlessly. Audio playback and basic video playback is functional too, however, YouTube videos are not playing up to the required quality. The phone can be charged but currently, there isn’t any indication on the screen about it.
The device may also feature a dual boot option. The program of NITDroid on the Nokia N9 seems promising and if all things go as planned, N9 users across the globe will get a fully functional Ice Cream Sandwich.
