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.

Looks similar to iOS and Android

I don't personally like WP7, but it is really different. This demo looks like yet another iOS clone. It is a few years late for Wow.

Several years ago I used to like Maemo on my N800, but UI was really buggy. And the most annoying thing was that Nokia could not figure out right delays in touch-screen logic, so it was always starting something when I was trying to scroll. And see, the same thing again during the Engadget video. It never happens on iOS.

No it isnt Member since:

"iOS clone". Really. Because it shows icons in a grid? Because of its excellent multitasking? Oh, wait.

The review clearly states that the multi-tasking slows down the system and you need to kill concurrent apps. So I am not sure 'excellent multitasking' is one of this platforms strengths.
