Nokia N9 joins next month's mobile match

Meego ahead anyway

Security for virtualized datacentres

It looks like Nokia's venture into the Meego market will come to fruition next month, after Orange Switzerland let slip the Nokia N9 release date as 15 September.

The company is yet to officially announce availability for its high-end Meego machine, but the handset is definitely on the verge of release. However, with WinPho 7.5 Mango devices anticipated this September and iPhone 5s expected in the same time frame, Nokia's Meego endeavour will need to shine very brightly given those long shadows.

Still, the N9, turns out a decent spec, sporting an 854 x 480 3.9in capacitive touchscreen with 16 or 64GB storage and 1GB RAM. It also boasts an 8Mp camera with 720p recording.

Nokia's own WinPho models will follow closely behind though, with handsets such as the Nokia "Sea Ray" pencilled in for Q4 2011.

We haven't spotted any UK release dates as yet, but we'll keep you posted. ®
