Why the hell people want more than 3 millions apps when in the end they will only buy few apps which is commonly used in all platforms now (eg. Angry bird and Quickoffice, which are available for iOS, Android and Symbian). Support for 2-3 years for a phone is good enough like u said as long as the user experienced in using the phone is great.

Also in Germany.. Marvelous elop. Let's hear your excuse when WP turns out a flop. Will you be handing out your resignation papers pronto and return your previous salary to Nokia out of shame? Tsk! Tsk! =/

So webOS and Meego and any other options for me are very well received.

my guess as to the reason why nokia are not launching the N9 in either the US or UK is because they know they have lost the smartphone market in these countries. americans prefer motorolas and apple and in the UK we prefer the korean offerings from the likes of samsung and of course apple. sadly nokia have lost the game. its not just the hardware thats behind its the firmware too!

I will import an N9 as soon as possible and I will never buy an MS-based device. Elop == fail.

another great idea from mr Elop i guess. it wont make me buy WP7 handset instead for sure.
has he charmed all Nokia investors or Microsoft already owns most Nokia shares.
i own Nokia e72 and im still content but thinking to get replacement. i am interested in N9 coz i like simplicity of it. i don't need 3 million apps so im not worry about it and for couple of years it will be supported any way and thats enough i think.
whats your opinion guys abut it?

Depending on the price, it may turn quite an interesting device to try.
