Purchased N9 due to excellent reviews despite Nokia's announcement of (Elop) killing Meego. It is easily one of the best phones Nokia has produced and after 7 years of loyal support, it will likely be my last Nokia purchase. While it's not a perfect phone, its marriage of software and hardware was exceptionally well executed. I could only dream what this phone could be like after multiple generations (ala iphone).
It is sad that development of this phone and OS has evaporated along with its brilliant team and despite an enthusiastic user community, it doesn't seem enough to rekindle serious development. Everybody has packed their bags and moved on.
I have already accepted that there will be no more firmware updates nor continued app development. It's hard to say as a loyal Nokia fan but I fear their best days are over as the Nokia/Windows debacle gives little hope.
