Nokia N9: Beautiful Hardware, Zombie Software

Nokia took a striking piece of unibody hardware, coupled it with a 3.9-inch curved glass touchscreen display, removed all the buttons, and topped it with an 8-megapixel Carl Zeiss camera and NFC. Incredible. It's called the N9. But!

This amazing little phone is running MeeGo, not Mango. Meaning it's basically dead before it even launches, for all but a tiny handful of people. (In fact, it was widely reported that this thing was killed before launch. Yet here it is!) If you happen to be one of those lonely people, it'll be available this year. The rest of us are just gonna dream of this phone, or something like it, running Windows Phone Mango. [Nokia]

Now it would be totally awesome if Nokia gave N9 owners the option to upgrade to Windows Phone 7 later this year, just to make them feel less shafted.
