Nokia, $799 (16GB) nokia.com.au ★★★★ This could be the start of a come­back. The Nokia N9 is the first smart­phone run en­tirely by its touch­screen. Users in­stead con­trol this smart­phone en­tirely with finger swipes. Open an app and push it away with a sweep of your finger when you’re done. From the home screen users can swipe left to a news feed or right to open apps. A half-sweep up the screen re­veals short­cuts to its di­aller, mes­sages, web browser and a quite im­pres­sive 8-megapixel cam­era. It has a Carl Zeiss lens and dual LED flash, while a front-fac­ing cam­era hides in the bot­tom cor­ner. The N9’s solid body and 3.9-inch (10cm) screen im­presses and its MeeGo soft­ware de­liv­ers a slick, en­joy­able and gen­uinely dif­fer­ent ex­pe­ri­ence.
