PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Remember back when Nokia jumped to Windows Phone 7, abandoning all other platforms and future directions? Remember Elop's infamous 'burning platform' memo was coveniently 'leaked' to the web? Remember how Elop claimed Windows Phone 7 was the only way forward, since nothing else inside the company would be ready for prime time soon enough? Remember how I thought this was a very good and sane decision? Well, the first reviews of what will be the only MeeGo handset from Nokia (the N9) are in, and well... To whoever decided to go WP7 and ditch MeeGo: I don't like you. To myself: I'm an idiot for arguing this was a good idea.

Nokia customers

The only Nokia customers I had when I was selling phones wanted Nokias because of the consistency between every model. Symbian today would be pretty familiar to anyone who used a Nokia five or even ten years ago. As cool as Meego looks, the average Nokia customer is about as tolerant of change as the average Facebook user.
