N9 with Meego is a very good phone, the best Nokia yet, try one and you will want one,
others will copy but never match it. N9 owner.

Vince, 08 May 2012seriously it's too android-ish and touchwiz-ish, i hate the ui! It's too complex, WP7 is i thi... morelol!! ikr!!! samsung is really bad of making an OS! bada was actually a mess! a bad copy of android! the only good thing to this is HTML apps! for me MeeGo still crush this poor copycat of its system!
Anonymous, 09 May 2012Wow, can't believe they left beautiful Meego to this ugly OS, no hope, amen!soo true! samsung is really bad at making OS! bada is a bad copy of android! nokia is really Good at mking OS! MeeGo is really a Masterpiece! same with there symbian! but they killed those two!!! hope they wont kill MeeGo completely! also with symbian! and that Meltemi OS is really as good as MeeGo!!
Refraction, 08 May 2012use Nokia 3310 if you dont want lag and BTW dont be stupid its just a prototype deviceBased on your comment, your saying that only a 3310 phone wont lag? LOL, Theres other OS's out there that dont lag. But its not android since my GS2 lags sometimes. Specially when heading to the homescreen. My icons pop up 1 by 1. and this is a stock gingerbread rom. Not modified by anything and also with touchwiz, not any other launcher.
Don't be so negative. There's a market for a truly open platform, plus it's based on HTML5 which gives it an upper hand in HTML5/Browser performance; It's not just an added HTM5 layer.
Some fundamental advantages that I've seen on open platforms like Maemo/Meego, which I still use and appreciate are true multi-tasking, built-in backup facility and not being forced to create an email account that binds to my device.
gadaffi, 09 May 2012You say it best, when you say nothing at all.
Sorry my bad I didn't think I had to spell it out for you.
The review was about the OS which they have been working on. You come one here and say "this phone is ugly period veeeeeeeeeery ugly" completely missing the point. Also at no point did I state is was the best, so unsure what your drinking there bud. 
Hmm, 08 May 2012You just don't get it.
Lets hope its more than a whisper in the wind. You say it best, when you say nothing at all.
Why do you have such a problem with new OS? Personally I think it's a great news, more competition among platforms means that higher quality would be required to grab users attention, because they would have more platforms to choose from. Although I'm an Android fan, i wish Tizen all the best.
Samsung has been all awhile talking about tizen having backward compatibility with apps made for bada. Who cares? What about vice-versa? Or just leave the wave users in the cold, and we will be praying sincerely that tizen turns out to be a big flop.
just another crap. OS like BADA. why bother just keep with android. surely thats common sense.
mixa, 08 May 2012Intel + OS = fail
Samsung + OS = fail
Now Intel + Samsung making an OS smells like a total fail.Sure will be a fail... but this is a open source project (if I'm not wrong), so still have a possibility of Samsung merge its code with Android core to give them some peace with the patent sues.
So the big Android market that they helped to build will not be in vain.
Anyway, if they don't do it, this will be only one more OS in the mobile market, so they need to very work hard to beat the iOS, ANDROID and WP!
add samsung touch wiz to anything and what ull get is one of the worst user interface in world.... (an toy version of iPhone)
though m nt a bit iPhone fan but i hate this Toy iPhone UI
