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.

Hardware keyboard?

It seems to a lack a hardware keyboard, which basically negates the main benefit that Maemo had and now Meego has over the 'competition': One can use it more like the proper PC that Maemo/Meego wants to be, instead of like a phone that got smart. How will I be able to properly operate X-Term without a hardware keyboard?

Overall it's a beautiful, minimalistic design. Especially the sharp corners are an artistically clever way to differentiate from the iPhone and it's wannabe follower smartphones.
