I can see the similarities and the Nano is the first design I thought of she seeing the edges up close, but I can't see anything about the device's "look and feel" that would be a legal issue where what Samsung did is very blatant.

I think the Nokia N9 is a sharp looking device all around. I think some of the animations feel really slick. My concerns are that Meego is apparently used which I thought Nokia was deprecating. If they aren't, and Meego looks as advanced as it is, they what's all this crap with WP7?

Nokia seems to be keeping the door to Meego ajar, maybe to leverage concessions out of MS. But yeh - sadly it seems a deadend at this point.

After seeing the N9 I'm debating buying Nokia stock. There MS association and this Meego deadened make me suspect. If they had this in the works why didn't they just keep MS out and release this to the world when it's ready. I think they would have shook up the smartphone market and reinforced their fan base that Nokia shouldn't be counted out.

I thought you read my posts.

Platforms Solipsism... it's all about platforms. Cloud enabled platforms even.

Over the coming years you can't just look at new devices in isolation, you need to look at them as a part of an overall computing platform.

How it interacts with other devices is more important than how a device works by itself.

Microsoft may be successful with their whole "three screens and the cloud" bit, or they may not, but at least they're a player.

Nokia by themselves with Symbian or Meego, isn't.

Either is RIM.

HP/Palm is questionable, but I think they still have a few cards up their sleeves.
