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.

>because it only works with unpopular MS stuff

You mean really unpopular MS stuff like Hotmail which has 100 M more active users than gmail? Or did you mean gmail itself whose contact also sync perfectly in wp7? I'm guessing that you don't agree wp7 that contact management is great mainly because you don't know what your talking about.

>its own unique user interface paradigm

Which is what? I think Meego looks great and is really interesting from a dev standpoint but little about the paradigm is unique. This statement makes no sense.
