MeeGo was a very solid phone OS so it was sad to see NOKIA give it up in favor of windows. Whit the jolla version supporting android apps at lest the phone/OS has a chance to prove its worth.
As for the phone it self. Meh with out hardware specs we know practically noting. I'm kind a fed up with thees all touch phones. What I want is the slide out QWERTY back.
I miss the physical qwerty phones too, although I'm not so fond of the slide outs in particular, unless you're using the term loosely. I still feel the sidekick series / HTC G1 had the best keyboards of any phone to date.
As for the phone being discussed, that's a nice idea and all, but it just seems entirely unrealistic. When is the last time that some little company introduced a new phone and was actually successful?
Compatibility with android apps is certainly a boon, but the real question is if there will be access
to and support for those apps. I'm going to go ahead and assume no.
If you have to tinker around with the phone just to install apps, you're back to the same situation as having to tinker around with an android phone to replace the launcher, only without the benefits that come with using a mainstream OS backed by one of the most powerful companies on earth.Edited by Zero4549 - 5/20/13 at 3:28pm
