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.

I totally lambasted the decision of Nokia hiring Elop and ditching MeeGo for WP7 when OSNews wrote an article about that, and it seems I was right all along. So there: "told you so!" ;)

As for N9: damn, it really looks slick. I like the unibody design with the curved sides, looks just great. It's just horribly sad to see MeeGo doing great and on such an especially beautiful phone when we all know MeeGo has been dropped by Nokia. Almost makes you hate Elop, doesn't it? ;)
