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.

There are compliance documents and standards. If the N9 distribution does not meet those requirements then there are going to be some problems very quickly.


Harmattan is "MeeGo enough", in terms of API's. Calling it MeeGo is something that benefits both Nokia and Intel. Developers easily learn the difference. So just let it go.


Does anyone here pretending to talk knowledgeably about the N9 or N950 have one?


I've been in possession of N950 prototype[s] for a long time.
