PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia may have gone with Windows Phone 7 for its future smartphone operating system, but until then, we now have the Nokia N9 to look at. Yes, a beautiful, top-of-the-line Nokia smartphone which runs MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan - but isn't this thing kind of a dead end? Also announced: the even prettier Nokia N950 Meego 1.2 developer device - only available to a limited number of developers. Sure to become a collectors' item.

I've got an android phone, and I'd happily switch to the N9 if the price is right. The apps themselves aren't or shouldn't be important, the capabilities are. Meego, from what I've seen, is highly capable in itself, with a proper GNU userspace, whereas Android isn't all that powerful and really depends on the applications to do every little thing.

Besides, it's built on Qt, so much of KDE should be easily adaptable to the platform. And it's got ScummVM.
