While the world is waiting for Nokia’s first smart phone with the Windows Phone operating system, Nokia launched a smart phone called Nokia N9, which is runing MeeGo, instead.

Nokia has previously announced that the development of the MeeGo platform will not be a priority, and that their main focus will be on Windows Phone. The first Nokia phones with Windows Phone will begin shipping later this year, said Nokia CEO Stephen Elop during a conference in Singapore. The statement is similar to what what the mobile manufacturers have said.

Nokia also repeated that they will continue to update their mobile OS Symbian which will be phased out in favor of Microsoft’s operating system.The Nokia N8, C7, E7 and C6-01 will get an update in July.

Nokia N9 has a screen of 3.9 inches, which covers most of the front. The phone has an 8 megapixel camera and has either 16 GB or 64 GB of space. The design of the N9 will be used for future Nokia phones, said Stephen Elop during the Singapore conference.
