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.

Incredibly sad

Add this to the list (along with webOS) of brilliant mobile software that will face certain death.

I think WP7 looks good… but I'm sad to see this software, WP7 will never offer the integration that a home grown OS can offer.

And the industrial design… it’s brilliant!

...really? Maemo can integrate with my Windows 7 laptop, Windows 7 workstation, xBox 360 and Windows home media center and even better with Exchange servers at work?

Hardware + software

I was talking about integration between hardware and software.

I think we can agree that Windows Phone 7’s integration with Microsoft stuff is one of it’s definitive strengths.

Personally I want it all (integration with hardware and other services) which is why i prefer iPhone (horrible faux-leather notes app and all).
