If Android and WP8 had a baby, it would be called Sailfish OS. Meh. It won't last.

Running apps in the background, true multitasking as in PC. It'd be great for me but my battery won't like it

I used to want Meego before. It was beautiful, unique and all. It was just the most beautiful looking OS at the time. But time has passed. Windows Phone ia now the most unique and beautiful mobile OS there is. I just love the experience on my Lumia 920. I don't think I will ever look for another OS other than Windows Phone. It's just so slick and elegant. Well, I just wish Sailfish OS good luck then. I hope it can take off. It would be nice to see four or even five different OSes battling it out in the smartphone world, not just one or two. Because the more choices, the better. But for me, Windows Phone is the winner. I just love the Nokia hardware.

Now this is what we call a competitor! Android app compatibility blended with the fluid Meego-like UI? This one's a keeper!
