Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "Finland is Nokia. Nokia is Finland. I've traveled to quite a few number of countries this year, and the only place where I see Lumia phones is this chunk of ice that I call home. According to the Finnish business publication Taloussanomat, who references data from IDC, Q1 2013 was the first quarter where mobile phones from the South Korean handset maker Samsung outsold those designed in Espoo. If that's not alarming, I don't know what is." Ouch.

Is there any reason why you're ruling out a jolla phone? Sounds like its the closest thing you'd be able to get.

That's what I was wondering about, too. I quite liked my N900, but the SDK was a major hassle to setup and use and the OS on it is full of rough corners everywhere. With that notion I personally will go for Jailfish like a dog goes for a bone as soon as they release one with a larger display.

Yes, while I'm quite interested in what Ubuntu eventually produces, Jolla looks to really have their act together with "MeeGo Next". The Other Half hardware has interesting potential as well. Hope they make it to the USA soon after Europe.

I'm not ruling it out in fact they're my last hope for a good phone. They just haven't been able to actually deliver any phones yet.
