TC, 02 Jul 2011The article does not change the fact that Nokia could have choosen Android and used Harmattan ... moreI wouldn't go as far as to say that Nokia should have went with Android. I would have liked to have a device that feels like the N97 in my hand running the software on the Desire Z. A magical device like that would make be a happy customer. It's one thing to be a fan of various products and quite another to identify that a company is about to run aground and then change the course of that company to keep it afloat and flourish into the future. I'll give Elop the benefit of the doubt as he is much more qualified than I in running a huge company like Nokia.

TC, 02 Jul 2011The article does not change the fact that Nokia could have choosen Android and used Harmattan ... moreYou talk as if you can run nokia better than Elop. What he is doing is the best thing to do. Although android would have been better for nokia, i being a nokia fan still won't buy a nokia android just because Samsung and Htc are doing a far better job (with added experience). Windows phone 7 is a better OS compared to android. The only thing driving android is their apps.
And the article was very informative. I guess you didn't even try to go through it. Nokia was forced not to take android by google itself, in the sense that they didn't allow nokia the same previeledge as they do to samsung or htc. Nokia can now at least stand out amidst the crowd.
In my opinion, the best OS is android. Then comes Windows phone 7. Apple isn't an option because they lack variation in their products.
l.e.o, 02 Jul 2011Dude dnt be stupid! :s it has both normal / micro sim slots.did you read the specs? its says "MicroSIM card support only"!
i hope this time they made it right, im already getting disappointed with NOKIA phones.
Have you forgotten to take your medicine? Nokia has been the Smartphone king for many years, and only in the last few years there is some good competition. Apple & Samsung are doing well now, but in my mind this N9 and their new WP7 devices will really kick some ass. :) Dont forget, Google is going to be screwed because of patent litigation from 45 (!) different companies. They are done for. http://goo.gl/m4Tys
Release date is September 23rd 2011.
n9 is a very good phone. iam also using this phone. it is one of the best phone in nokia product. i appreciate this.
MeeGo is better then symbian . . . I hope there are going to be more MeeGo phones , MeeGo is good as android :D
Isn't Nokia closing down next year? Iphone, Samsung and HTC are whats selling these days. I have an N8 and its great, but' to be honest,.... could be better. C'mon Nokia, get back in the game!!
boos nokia is, best try to giv every time some thing new so wait n watch nokia wil come with some thing new like n10 or more.........
what do you think how it goes to cross n8. does it ? by think of mine n9 cant beat n8. what you guys think..????

Read th... moreThe article does not change the fact that Nokia could have choosen Android and used Harmattan as a skin, user interface, just like HTC use HTC Sence, and Nokia have all possibility to give Nokia-buyers Nokia Maps, just as HTC give "Locations".
It is a weak excuse to say that Google did not allow Nokia to customize Android because HTC proves that even Nokia could customize Android and add features exclusive only for Nokia-buyers! Nokia should have choose Android, but Elop was to focused on only WP7 because Elop he himself had put his "heart and soul" into Microsoft for many years before he came to Nokia. Nokia desperatly needed change, but NOT WP7!
