The N9 exceeds in everything it sets out to accomplish and even beats the competition in their own game, so you can’t really say its a bad device. What’s important to realize here is, that the N9 is in no way a successor of the N900, even if its initial efforts might’ve been to that direction.

Chris for Peak Mobility in his review of the N9.

This review is an especially interesting one because it delivers a comparison to the N900, as the reviewer is a N900 enthusiast.
