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.

how long did it take Apple to get to that point?

Windows Phone 7 Mango is looking to be a great OS... I would have gotten a windows phone but the current generation of hardware sucked (IMHO... All I wanted was an AMOLED screen rather than an LCD screen... so... I got an Android.... Perhaps I will get a winpho7 phone next time.
