Oh for the love of God, give it a rest.
If MeeGo was anything like the buggy mess Intel showed at MWC then Elop made the right call. Sure, Elop handled the communication badly, but that doesn't mean he's an insider.
Will it work? Don't know.
Will MS take over Nokia? Don't know.
Who is to blame for all this? Nokia's previous senior team.
Dry your eyes and move on.
Meego VS WP7
There will be ONLY one Meego device in 2011(According to Elop why he will cancel Meego phone.)
But Nokia's WP7 only comes on 2012.
Conclusion: Meego is faster than WP7(Let along there is a very great N900)
Symbian VS WP7
WP7 will have copy/past, multi-thread at the middle of 2011 - Symbian already has.
WP7 will have HTML5 with HW accelerate Browser at the end of 2011 - Symbian is plan to have it too.
Conclusion: Symbian is as faster as WP7
When Nokia discard all it's investment to get 20% market share(already a remarkable number) for WP7. That is extremely great for MS. But for Nokia? Not a normal CEO will do it like this except a Trojan Horse who wants Nokia to lost his ability of independency ASAP.
Let alone Nokia still has the biggest market share with its own OS and some many dramatic changes on Symbian^3 and QT.
People hates Nokia because it has glory history but lags now. But people never miss HTC if it is closed, because they just like Android.
But this is taken advantaged by the CEO which makes Nokia never has a chance to be independent. MS even can bear the fail on wp7, but not nokia
, this is the expense of losing independence.
IS THIS THE CONCEPT OF PARTNERSHIP. Every partner keeps its independency for protecting self's interest. - NO, NOKIA is conquered but with respect for the current position in mobile world and the weakness of WP7
