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.

Maybe because it is a beautiful device that runs a very elegant and well thought out open operating system?

Plus:
- No bloated VM like in Windows Mobile Phone 7 Series or Android
- solid fast true multitasking, not the IOS bolted on second thought recently used apps + a little extra solution or Androids pre-4.0 weird solution
- incredible Qt framework, that does nearly everything from low level OpenGL to declarative Qt Quick
- only device that includes the most popular services like Gtalk, Skype, Mail, Picasa, Flicker, Twitter and Facebook etc out of the box
- most open development in the industry
- best contact management (I don't agree that Windows Mobile 7 is better, because it only works with unpopular MS stuff and popular Facebook AFAIK)

Comparable to Meego is only WebOS, but that always had flimsy crappy hardware and stupid owners (of course Nokia is also not Einstein tbh)
