I actually think that the Nokia's quite sexy and the build quality is excellent, but I wouldn't buy it with the Windows software, so this is welcome... :D (Though I already have a rooted SGS2)

I have always claimed that if there will be Nokia with android, that it will be best phone on market... So, now we have to wait and see how this port will turn out... If it will be working fine... who knows... maybe my next phone will be Android powered Nokia ;)

Iv been in limbo about this phone for some time now and decided i would wait for all the quad core andriods to appear, not for the power as such, more due to the fact id like to have a decent app store i dont use many but its nice to have, but if ics works on it and eventualy google play i guess iv changed my mind

I tried ICS on my N9 and here are some observations.
1- 1st of all meego is much cooler than android ICS.
2- You ll lose all passowrds for your accounts when you restart it.
3- Wireless not working.
4- Camera not working.
5- 3G is working but you can not download apps.
6- ICS Alpha release for developers only :P. althought working quite smooth but alot od issues need to be fixed.

What?! No way! Nokia never attach with Android, iOS and other! The developer still have the contract and it's still valid until forever. So, don't ever make iOS, Android and other attach to nokia!

I love my n9 and harmattan os very much but its major weakness is lacking popular apps like draw something. Dual boot android would make it just perfect! Just hope the process is easy and won't brick my n9
