yea i wish they kick his a** out of Nokia, since he became the company's CEO, and Nokia is falling down, and he dumped the most OS capable of competing Android (am not bashing Android here), since both are open source OSes, and not limited for both the company, and the customers, Symbian was already going down, because they failed to keep up with the market needs.

Best thing is that apps compatibility of android apps. Windows mobile OS suffers the shortage of apps.

Windows Mobile hasn't been around for years. Windows PHONE though...

And apps aren't everything. If the device can do a lot out of the box and the stuff you use is available online (as most stuff is), apps aren't that necessary. The only apps I have on my phone are games and a few productivity tools. Everything else is done via bookmarks (and LiveTiles) within IE

The OS looks really really cool. I can't wait to see Jolla come out with their own HARDWARE to show NOKIA HOW TO MAKE A OS without them. Damn the skin looks PRETTY DAMN GOOD. I just hope they come out with a hardware phone by CES 13'. WAY TO GO JOLLA!!
