Amazon's rekindled Kindle isn't the only big tech news today. Microsoft and Samsung signed the biggest Android patent deal to date, while Nokia is now shipping the N9 smartphone (sorry, US ... and UK).
The Nokia N9 is described as "A beautifully simple all-screen smartphone. Nokia N9, a bold, all-screen phone that's incredibly fast and simple to use. All it takes is a swipe. The swipe has made our best features even better and easier to use, so you can get straight to the important things. We wanted to design a better way to use a phone, and it comes down to one simple gesture — a swipe." (It's the only smartphone based on MeeGo, which is giving way to Tizen.)
