PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Sorry for the delay in writing a story about this, but here we finally are: Nokia's MeeGo (or Maemo or whatever it's called this hour) is getting its successor. Yes, MeeGo, the short-lived but beloved platform running on the unicorn phone, the Nokia N9, will continue onwards in a slightly different form. Its new home? Jolla - a company formed by former Nokia chief operating officer Marc Dillon, who was the principal engineer for MeeGo/Maemo at Nokia since 2006.

2. HD camera- at least 8MP at the very min 12MP preferable. phone photography and facebook are becoming a normal part of everyday life.


The N9's camera is 8 megapixels, and unimpressive. The Lumia, from what I've seen, is even worse (despite having the same(?) Carl Zeiss lens). There's much more to a camera than megapixels. The Galaxy III takes very nice pictures with 8 megapixels.


5. large internal storage - 64gb min or expandable memory. once again a must for those who use their phone to watch movies or listen to music.


Spotify and other streaming services are taking over for local storage.


6. the most important a decent battery - nothing more frustrating than a phone that goes flat all the time, lets face it the N9 eats batteries.


Battery drainage depends so much on use with smartphones. If you use all kinds of push sevices and stay connected to Google Talk all the time, it will drain your batteries a bit. Do the same in an area with flaky GSM reception, and the N9 with gulp down the battery juice in no time. Others will do the same, but YMMV.

As for Flash, it's available for Meego but I haven't bothered with installing it after reflashing the latest firmware. The sooner it dies, the better.
