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.

Your comment is exactly what I come to expect from an Apple fanatic such as yourself: incapable of looking at how user interfaces behave, instead focussing just on how they look.

Which also explains why people like you think Android is an iOS ripoff, even though the two are nothing alike in behaviour.

Well, you didn't really further explain your statement, but kristoph did enumerate a few reasons that he didn't see much there.

So I'd actually like to know what you feel the unique user interface paradigm offered by Meego is?

Thom, why are you always so defensive? I asked some very basic questions, and instead of answering them you just fire off a personal attack.

In response to your answer, I don't how it behaves any more than what I've seen in the review. If that's what your into why not say so?

(Also, note that that I am now officially an Apple and a Microsoft 'fanatic'. I do make software for Android as well but I do think it's weaker then iOS WP7/Mango).

I have nothing against MeeGo. I've used QT for almost 10 years and I would love to do it again. I am just saying this platform is not competitive .
