Some bitterness has remained with Stephen Elop, CEO of Nokia, announcing the N9 on MeeGo and then somewhat shifting all focus onto "SeaRay". Many MeeGo fans are slightly confounded as to whether Nokia will be supporting their platform or will Windows Phone receive more attention in favour with Microsoft.
Michael Faro-Tusino, of MyNokiaBlog, decided to get in touch with Elop and get some answers. He was greeted with the following reply:
It's interesting to note the last sentence about covering multiple price points and radio technologies. If this is the case then one could confirm everyone's suspicion that Nokia will be pumping out entry-level handsets as well as power horses in their volume shipping frenzy.
Coming to a personal opinion, I still stand by what I've continuously said to everyone when this topic is discussed: "it's really a no-brainer". Microsoft supports the platform they're developing (we've all witnessed how much funding they can splash out) and it's still being painted as number three after iOS and Android. At least the N9 will be out and Nokia fans will have a choice between the two platforms. Who knows? If the N9 is incredibly successful then the mobile giant could be saved by not just one OS, but two.
