I've been running MeeGo on an Asus netbook for a couple of years now. It's a slick, snappy, and very stable little OS -- one that would definitely to compel me give the Sea Ray a try... but I can understand Verizon's decision. With already two platforms in their product lineup (Apple & Android, does Blackberry count as a third?) Nokia/MeeGo would likely have been a very niche product, and quite possibly not generate enough revenue to justify the cost of an additional, entirely new channel of technical support. It's the classic scenario of a smaller upstart crowded out of the market by larger, existing players.

(The fact that the hardware -- 1ghz, 3.7" -- was no longer competitive before it was ready to be released probably didn't help, either.)

I was priveliged enough to play with an N9, my friend got one online the hardware quality is great, the screen is good if it weren't pentile, camera is amazing but the old processor and horrible GPU show when u are doing graphically intensive stuff.
