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.

Very familiar design

It's looks like an oversized iPod Nano. And it also has idiotic Apple features like non removable battery.

UI looks nice. Fonts look crisp and clear to read. Colour selection is pretty good and doesn't have that UI lost in darkness like Android ICS.

The App selection screen looks terrible. Too roundish. Gives it a cheap look.

I hope Nokia will have something else for next week other than just a N9 with WP7.
