PocketNow has shots of what appears to be the Nokia N9, which kinda looks like an elongated and oversized iPod nano. Beautiful (and probably well constructed) as it may be, I don’t give a damn about it. Why? It runs Meego, not Mango.
When Microsoft and Nokia announced a partnership at the beginning of the year to put Windows Phone 7 on the majority of Nokia devices, it was exciting because it meant the end of crappy Nokia software, but not their excellent hardware. That Nokia gave up on Meego after so much time and money had been poured into its development doesn’t inspire much confidence in its quality. Staring at this just gives me blue balls, technologically speaking. [Pocket Now]
