So finally Nokia made sure the N9 wont succeed by setting an unrealistic high price point.
The first Nokia mobile with very positive reviews in a very long time and Nokia desperatly tries to make it loose - just to legitimate the switch to Windows Phone.
I wonder what had to go wrong, to make a company like Nokia decide to make itself completly dependent on a single software company and let in-house know-how and potential accumulated over the past 10 years just go away. Take Samsung for comparison - their Android smartphonse do really well - but just in case something unfourtunate would happen - they still have plenty of other options like Bada.
I can't help but to feel a bit sad, the 770 and N800 were great development platforms. Instead of just using the linux kernel and some non-unix userland (owned and controlled by a single company), that platform really was linux on a phone. My 770 is still used as internet gateway, firewall and postgresql server.
