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.

Except, that would be selling the platform short by a country mile.


If a device such as the N9 included Alien Dalvik, then it would inherit all of the Android ecosystem AS WELL as being able to run native Meego/Qt apps. This would be a capability beyond that of any Android/iOS/WP7 device on its own.

How is that observation selling the platform short?
