PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Remember back when Nokia jumped to Windows Phone 7, abandoning all other platforms and future directions? Remember Elop's infamous 'burning platform' memo was coveniently 'leaked' to the web? Remember how Elop claimed Windows Phone 7 was the only way forward, since nothing else inside the company would be ready for prime time soon enough? Remember how I thought this was a very good and sane decision? Well, the first reviews of what will be the only MeeGo handset from Nokia (the N9) are in, and well... To whoever decided to go WP7 and ditch MeeGo: I don't like you. To myself: I'm an idiot for arguing this was a good idea.

I'm surprised no one's mentioned Tizen yet, the one great hope for Meego fans:

Of course, it probably won't be Nokia that comes out with the first Tizen phone. My guess is that it will be Samsung.

Tizen is just another HTML nonsense.
Well It seems Nokia will use Linux in the lower end with Meltemi.
