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.

1. linux (codename Meltemi) will live on in the low-end/feature phones, replacing the s40 operating system /fact/

2. the N9's "MeeGo Harmattan" is Nokia's "Maemo 6" linux os with a Meego compatibility layer /fact/

3. there's already an 1.1 sw update comming to N9 (reliability, performance, polish and features that slipped the schedule) and 1.2 update in the making (new features) /fact/

4. the UI (and QT) from N9 will live on on linux (most probably Meltemi) for low-end/feature phones /fact/
