PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless And the burning platform is still, uhm, burning. "Chief Executive Stephen Elop is placing hopes of a turnaround on a new range of smartphones called Lumia, which use largely untried Microsoft software. But Lumia sales have so far been slow, disappointing investors." It's a shame to see a once proud company in such a downward spiral, but alas, it's the way of business. If you get complacent - as Nokia had gotten - you will fail.

Meego is of course a vaporware. Nobody cares about Meego

But N9 uses Maemo, and I assure you many of us do care a lot about Maemo.

If you are interested to know the reason, here's one. First, read http://stackoverflow.com/a/7857052 about how to debug an iOS application on an actual device over wifi. It sucks. On the other hand, Qt Creator does that seamlessly with plain old SSH into N900 / N9. No string attached. No magic involved.
