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.

Nokia Swan Song

Surely has to be 'The song remains the same' (LZ fans will know the connection to 'Swan Song')

Or for those who have bought into this dead platform(admittedly, it is not all that bad) is

'Won't get fooled again'.

In some ways S Balmer is right(sounds of gritted teeth). From an operating point of views, I find Android 2.3 very frustrating and sometimes downright annoying. At the risk of getting shot down in flames, the IOS 4 device I had previously was to my mind far more logical and clean.
However from my limited experience (about an hour) of playing with an WP7 device, MS have dumbed it down even more to an extent that it goes almost too far in the wrong direction.
