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.

Maybe they see Google as worse than Microsoft. Maybe they wanted to differentiate themselves. Who would want to be another Android OEM?

If you're going to be relegated to the "just another oem" status... Surely it makes sense to be an OEM for a platform that is more popular, cheaper and has more apps available?
They went from a niche platform they totally controlled, to being an OEM for a niche platform controlled by someone else.
