Since when did Nokia put hardware on the back-burner? I don't want any phone with an old OMAP 3xxx series chip. Not to mention, anything running ARM Cortex A8 architecture. What made Nokia a good phone was their flat out superiority.

Hope this company fails hardcore. They abandon Symbian for WINDOWS of all things. I'm glad they barely sell in North America.

Nevermind, i just watched the video. WOW, lag free!

Some ex-employees stated that they were ready to ship a year ago (take this as you will, but Harmattan has been stable and fast for years). Elop was hired and in less than two months had killed most of the future Meego products and signed a (rumoured) 8 year contract to pay $15 per phone to MS and give MS free access to almost all of the Nokia phone related IP (costing the company hundreds of millions perhaps even into the billions of dollars).

The phone was only shipped because Elop didn't have any excuses not to; the product was already finished. What he did do was delay shipping until the hardware was outdated and the company was almost finished with WP7 devices. That said, Meego performs much better than Android devices using the same chip (using the GPU when possible frees up the CPU making CPU related tasks faster).

All that's left now is for people to buy n9's and not buy WP7 devices. Walk into a store and see one of those rumoured Nokia 800's (n9 with buttons, snapdragon(courtesy of MS demands on Nokia), and WP7) sitting next to a n9. Play with both for a couple of minutes. In the end, you'll opt for the N9 ever time. Even with slightly worse hardware, the Swipe UI is just that much better.

It's not actually dead. Meego and LiMo have merged to become Tizen. One of the development leads on Tizen is Samsung, so it's not hard to envisage a future Samsung phone with Meego's progeny as it's operating system.

What would be the reason to ruin the phone with WP7? In my opinion, the only advantage that WP7 has is the quantity of applications available.

Thanks for an excellenr reply. Elop will be the death of NOKIA. I have no doubt.

Question: could Nokia just code ANDROID to be as intuitive, fluid and natural as Meego? Why build a whole new OS?

I bet NOKIA's UI for ANDROID would be far superior to all others. Save for maybe google experience.

I really wish they would release the N950 to consumers. The N9 is nice, but I really would prefer the N950.

In the end, that's all I use my homescreen for. Really, you go to your computer and you just open an application you want to use, same goes for your phone. The mainscreen should be a hub of applications and a quick button to go to all your gadgets you want to see (facebook, weather, blah blah blah). I really like this concept.
