PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia may have gone with Windows Phone 7 for its future smartphone operating system, but until then, we now have the Nokia N9 to look at. Yes, a beautiful, top-of-the-line Nokia smartphone which runs MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan - but isn't this thing kind of a dead end? Also announced: the even prettier Nokia N950 Meego 1.2 developer device - only available to a limited number of developers. Sure to become a collectors' item.

Note that while Nokia won't be churning out Harmattan devices after N9, the real "platform" for Nokia is Qt, and this device is in Qt family. So developers can create a QML app and run it on:

- 250 million (current projection) Symbian devices, supported until 2016

- N9 (an "aspirational" flagship device)

- Future "next billion" devices - Marco Argenti (my boss, incidentally) announced on Nokia Connections yesterday that Qt will be the development platform for future low end devices. This is a big deal.
