Google Once upon a time, in a land, far, far away, there were two mobile operating systems. One of them was designed for mobile from the ground up; the other was trying really hard to copy its older, desktop brother. One was limited in functionality, inflexible and lacked multitasking, but was very efficient, fast, and easy to use. The other had everything and the kitchen sink, was very flexible and could multitask, but had a steep learning curve, was inconsistent, and not particularly pretty.

"Swiftkey X allows me to do something no other smartphone keyboard can: work with two autocorrect/suggest dictionaries at the same time."
Nokia E52, Symbian v9.3 (two versions before current S^3) offers this out of the box too.

I'm somewhat surprised to see the history of smartphone OSs reduced to iOS and Android as the heirs of PalmOS and Windows Mobile, especially in an article written in Europe.

I've been a happy Symbian S60 user fo years and I'll be a happy Meego Harmattan user when my N9 arrives.

As a sidenote, I'm not a true geek, but I understand the N9, not an Android phone, is what a true geek would want and qualify as a real computer in the pocket.
