PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Huge swathes of the interface are remarkable only by their familiarity: a home screen with a grid of apps; a single navigation button to take you back to this screen or alternatively to a multi-tasking screen by way of a long press; and a top-to-bottom pull-down for notifications and quick access to settings. It's basic, but it represents pretty much what all these new operating systems are supposed to be: ways of getting functionality that is at least close to Android but without all the licensing costs associated with running Google services." A lobotomised iOS/Android mashup. This is completely void of personality. Still, it looks like this is Samsung's future (guess who was wrong).

Windows Phone 8 can already hit every price point that Bada ever hit, and is rapidly moving even further downward -- all while making sensible trade offs which don't compromise the user experience.

That, and Sailfish does a lot of what this wants to do, and its written by a company with a sense of direction.
