Yeah, I am a long-time Nokia fan. Since the beginning of 2000, as a tech journalist (then blogger), I witnessed how all Nokia portfolios rolled-out here in Indonesia.
But frankly speaking, Nokia seems a bit slow in addressing user needs, particularly smart-phone enthusiasts. A bit disappointed on this, I must say.When Apple comes up with the shiny iPhone, RIM’s BlackBerry invades the business segment, and Google’s Android hits the stores, Nokia still thinks its Symbian OS was just fine. There are no further and significant leaps.<!–more–>
Nokia finally realized that. The Finnish phone-maker then started to offer a new platform called Maemo for N900. [The upcoming Nokia N8 is gonna be the last Symbian N-series handset].
Following the Maemo’s success, Nokia promotes another new platform: MeeGo, the brainchild of Nokia and Intel Corp. Nokia will fully adapt the MeeGo for the newer N-series mobile phones.Let’s see how this new platform works and how the market reacts. Since I will attend the Nokia World 2010 in London, September 14-15, so hopefully I would hear Nokia’s latest strategy and could see their new MeeGo devices.
Come on, Nokia. This is your (last) chance to impress the smart-phone world! At least, try to convince me that you have better device and platform.I am now using Motorola Milestone as well as Nokia N900 and BlackBerry Onyx. So far, I think I love Android…
