I'm looking forward to seeing what this brings.

I actually quite liked the look of Meego (and that is saying something, as I hate Nokia and their fumbled Maemo handling, as documented here previously)... but you can't buy one for anything less than stupid money here. £500+ for a 64GB model is insane. The 16GB model is pretty pricey too - generally £100 more than a Lumia 800 now. If I could get it on contract, I probably would. No one in the UK stocks it on contract, in fact - it was never even released here. Given the platform is now dead, I'm not going to pay a premium for a phone with absolutely no future. Shame, because I really would have otherwise.
