Acowymous Nonherd

The comparison with the N8 misses something important: the N8 sucked.

I know. I bought one. I replaced my iphone 3G -- not GS, note -- with an N8, because I'd liked my previous Nokia and hoped the new form factor would be an improvement on what I liked about Symbian.

No dice. Everything wrong with Symbian was wronger, and nothing was better. It was miserably slow. I couldn't even consistently bcc: myself when I sent mail. The browser was awful. The input method was just exactly wrong enough that my error rate went up -- an achievement compared to the iphone. Apps weren't available, and if they were they were I got billed multiple times. The interfaces were all over the place, so you never knew what would happen in an app.

The features were all there on paper, but plainly while Apple's iphone team uses the iphone all the time, Nokia's engineers -- or maybe it's the marketing people -- don't actually have to use their phones. Or, if they do, they have such a high tolerance for inconsistent behaviour that they'll put up with it.

I agree Nokia is doomed. But it's not Elop's moronic plan to hitch the wagon to a sinking ship that is the problem. The wagon's wheels came off a long time ago. Sorry.


I has a N95 when the first iPhone came out and I can tell you… it was like a breadth of fresh air.

The N95 had better technical specs but they were buried under poor user interface. The software was so convoluted you wouldn't want to risk using the GPS/map in the car (and if you did the battery would be dead before you reached your destination). And who wanted to peck out email on that thing. The web browser was almost unusable.

To say the N95 "was years ahead on almost anything else you might want in a smarpthone" beyond the screen and touch screen is so wrong it makes me question the rest of your blog.

It is very nice single device which would have zero chance so succeed on its own even if it would be nokia bet on future. And while it has nice features it has serious flaws which would not be overlooked if this would not be swansong of meego, at least right now.


good post.I like it.


The last proper communicator was the 9500/9300(i). The E90 had the hardware but not the software. Notebook level hardware with candy bar phone level software, one of those decisions that alienated the developer ecosystem, and a lot of customers too.
