Understandable, seeing that he fired the entire staff behind Meego :D
Can't wait for Nokia to start shipping this. I'm definitely getting the 64 Gb N9.

this device is a test mouse which its fate depend on customers. if meego is a success, Nokia will not fool enough to stop this. more apps will come, a new meego market will build.
so it is you that decide Nokia meego Destiny. :)

unfortunetly there are no flash player 10 support even they used android os..:)
UndCOVer, 25 Jun 2011Nice thoughts glad to discuss those with ya.
Buy a professional camera if you are that deep... moreThe screen will react through thin pants, just place your finger inside your t-shirt... and then touch the screen on your N8 or Android, so it is a stupid idea to not have only a hardware button to activate the screen!
Swyping in a game or an app may move the user to the homescreen even if he/she does not want to, so even here it is better to have a hardware-key to press to move to the homescreen from any app/game.
N9 will not have Android Market so you will not be able to easily use all Android apps...
I'm somewhat attracted by both the Meego as well as the upcoming Windows Phones, but I know at least the Windows phone will lack attributes that I'm not willing to give up from the N8 - for example the possibility to use N8 as mass memory without needing a software installed on the computer.
I really like the looks and feel of Meego, but I think it's a bit stupid to buy a phone that has absolutely no future. Then again, Symbian^3 is mostly the same, but at least they have some amount of staff for it and it'll keep going on the cheaper end phones, so some support will be there.
And as a last reason, my N8 is only a year old by the time those come out and it works perfectly with no flaws and I'm perfectly happy with it. I hope that in a year the Windows phones develop many of the good features of Symbian (currently WP reminds me of iOS, very much locked down unlike Symbian).
What a shame. Nokia are at least 12 months out regards specs here with an OS that has in effect been obsoleted. What a waste of resources when they need all they have to get back in the game!
The guys, who don't like this device, then what r u doing here?
Go to your SGS2 forum or Iphone 4 forum. If you don't like the device, then stay away from here. Don't spoil the forum, by posting unecessary comments.
To all the fanboys hailing this as the future of Nokia you need to accept that MeeGo is dead, even though it seems like a good OS it is dead, Nokia has committed to WP7 and here is something - http://www.engadget.com/2011/06/25/nokias-stephen-elop-is-still-over-meego-even-if-the-n9-is-a-hi/
Are you sure it is magenta not fluorescent red? No radio no micro sd card, what else are not present in this Nokia N9?
This phone must be released 2 years ago. It is too too late Nokia.........
As 4 tha os, meego is just tha COOLEST!! As 4 tha lack of radio, divx/xvid, nokia couldve done better
