Photos: Nokia N9 vs. Nokia N8

One of the great debates among Nokia fanatics right now is how the N9 stacks up against the N8. I have an article coming up about this topic but for now I’ll break things down in some photos of the hardware. When I first held the N8 in my hands a year ago I thought it was beautiful. But wow, the N9 takes things to a whole new level. Just seeing this thing in pictures is not enough. You have to hold it and touch it to understand the design. With the Nokia N9 finally on sale and the N8 prices dropping fast, this debate is only growing stronger. Before I ramble on further, I’ll just leave you with these N9 vs. N8 side-by-side photos as this article was intended.

    The N9 looks great but would you consider it as a replacement for an N8?

    If you can due without the N8 camera then it’s a great replacement for the N8. But that depends on your needs.
