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.

Possibly. But then the N9 might get some additional developer support from using Qt and an open OS. There are zillions of Qt developers out there, and plenty of them will get the N9 simply because of Qt. Then they can develop for that and easily port their work to the world's biggest mobile platform, Symbian.

Then again, apps are overrated. "There's an app for that!" is just advertising speech for "the phone can't do that by default".
