I Already Hate Nokia's Fantastic Looking New Phone

PocketNow has shots of what appears to be the Nokia N9, which kinda looks like an elongated and oversized iPod Nano. Beautiful (and probably well-constructed) as it may be, I don't give a damn about it. Why? It runs Meego, not Mango. » 6/20/11 7:13pm 6/20/11 7:13pm
