The N9 Meego-powered handset is one of the most anticipated handsets from Nokia. This is the last Meego handset that Nokia will deliver, since they are now looking at Windows Mobile to power their smartphones. The expected date for the release of this 3.9-inch handset was supposed to be the 23rd of September, 2011. A countdown clock was put up on Nokia's Swedish website, indicating the same. However, this timer has now been quietly taken down.

Hopefully the N9 will release on time

According to a report by GSM Arena, the countdown clock was put up on the website 50 days prior to the launch of the handset. When the timer popped up, there was no major announcement, and its removal was done as quietly. Hopefully, for those looking to get their hands on the N9, the launch of the phone should not get delayed. We certainly are hoping for the launch, as soon as possible.
