PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless As I'm working on a long and detailed article about Psion and Symbian (similar in setup to the Palm article), I need to dive into a number of devices that I have never personally owned. One of the devices that was atop my list was what I think is the ultimate Symbian device: the Nokia E7 - the last of the long line of Communicators, released in early 2011. While more detailed information about it will find its way into the Psion/Symbian article, I figured it'd be interesting to give a few first impressions.

I understand your point, its kind of fair. You can't really blame elop for their colossal delay in turning the internet tablets n700 & n800 into phones. Would any one in the states have chose a nokia Mameo/Meego phone over a Android/IOS one? I don't know, but no one in their right minds is choosing a Windows phone 8 nokia over a Mameo/Meego phone.

If you look at the alternative phone os market, you have jolla, BlackBerry, Ubuntu all using a variation of the qt strategy that Elop abandoned. I don't think he got the point of it. I do think that Symbian lived far longer than it should have do to internal pressure to keep it which starved off resources for Mameo/Meego. The Jerks. I never got to use Meego, but Mameo was decent.
