The Nokia N9 has been filed with the FCC, which means we can take a peek at the user manual for this MeeGo Harmattan device.

I’ve noted some interesting snippets from a quick skim-read:

  • On the lock screen, you can jump straight to the appropriate application for a notification by dragging its icon to the left or right edge of the screen.
  • A quick launch bar allows easy access to the phone, camera, web browser, or messages by swiping up from the bottom of the screen when in portrait.
  • There is mention of ‘remote security features’ which can be used to lock and erase data if you loose your phone.
  • There is an option to close data connections when not in use, which should help with data costs/battery.
  • The contact manager attempts to merge duplicate contacts obtained from different services automatically.
  • Call divert options are supported.
  • Custom contact ringtones are supported.
  • Multimedia messages are supported.
  • The camera app has face detection, and non-destructive editing capabilities.
  • There is a special power-saving mode which reduces wlan scans, and automatically closes connections.
  • A ‘trusted person’ can be set, and the phones lock code can be sent via SMS to that person from the lock screen.
