About this blog

I’ve been using the Nokia N9 phone for about two years now (August 2013) and so far I have been quite happy with the phone and the features it provides. Currently I’m using it mainly for reading emails, for navigation and for sports tracking (with Meerun and Sports Tracker). Some time ago I had this idea that why not try to program something myself. I don’t have any previous experience with writing programs for the mobile devices or with Qt, just some basic C and C++ skills. However, I would think that within couple of years I should be able to gain enough knowledge to even publish something. I plan to record my findings into this blog so that I can easily continue even if there may be longer breaks between my programming studies (as my family and daytime job sometimes seems to take precedence over these kinds of hobbies).

Here are some facts about my N9:

 Display 3.9″ AMOLED, 16M colors, 854×480 pixels
 Memory 16GB, 1GB RAM
 Connectivity A-GPS, Compass, WLAN 802.11 abgn, micro USB, BT 2.1, NFS
 Audio MP3 player, 3.5 mm audio jack, supported codecs: mp3, AAC, AAC+, eAAC+, WMA, FLAC
 Video 720P, H.263, H.264, MPEG-4, WMV 9, Matroska
 Camera 8 MP AF camera with Carl Zeiss optics, dual-LED flash, wide-angle lens

    After reactivating my nokia N9 in 2017, your page ‘http://n9.dy.fi/2015/10/battery-replacement-and-reflash/’ helped me a lot. 😉

    Great blog (SDK download, Nokia N9 UX Guidelines)!

      Thanks, glad to hear the blog is still useful! I actually did a small update to the battery replacement chapter (user directories), now that you reminded me about that. 🙂

    Hi n9dyfi!
    I’ve downloaded ‘QtSdk-offline-win-x86-v1_2_1.zip’ and installed it, but the directory ‘QtSDK\Madde\toolchains’ is empty 😡 . It’s not possible for me to compile Haramattan programms for the N9! To you have any idea why?
