I’ve been holding my breath with Nokia for quite a while, hoping that they’d really start moving in terms of innovation. I sincerely hope that the N96 is one of the also-rans of Mobile World Congress and that there’s more. I’m sure there will be. It certainly looks like a nice handset.
Time, I think to reset my expectations on innovation and get real.
