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.

meego was DOA when it came to apps.
It wasn't. Nokia made it.
I'm sorry but Meego could have been the greatest thing since chili dogs and it would have went exactly nowhere.
Android did. But maybe Google was in a better position than Nokia to bull it of in the mobile phone space?

iOS did to but then it was created by Apple which put some more finish on the smartphone and made it sell to the masses.
