Stefan over at IntoMobile wrote a post showing a grainy photo of a Nokia MeeGo tablet. That wasn’t my interest though. Stefan took the opportunity to summarise his perspective on the smartphone (and tablet?) industry thus:
Nokia lost the hardware battle a long time ago when everyone started jumping on top of the Qualcomm Snapdragon and ARMv7 bandwagon. Many of you will say that Symbian is awesome because it performs remarkably well on old hardware. Truth of the matter is no one cares about that. They want a spiffy browser and a few games from EA. Can’t deliver? You end up in the discount hardware section of a small family owned electronics store.
He makes a very, very good point.
A good browser (a la iPhone/iPad/Android), some whizzy graphics, an easy-to-use interface and a few games from EA. Do you agree?
