N9 is getting praises, mostly because it has a cool design and it runs on MeeGo, an open source project that Nokia tried to butcher. N9 shows that Nokia could have done better with its own OS. Unfortunately, ex-Microsoft executives now in control of Nokia seem to have a single minded approach -- come what may Microsoft is the way to go.
It seems Mr Elop, the ex-Microsoft executive now driving the once master turned mistress Nokia towards Microsoft's bed, is more determined to turn Nokia into a hardware truck which delivers Microsoft's mobile OS.
He told in an interview to Helsingin Sanomat that even if the N9 proves a massive hit, Nokia is going to turn its attention to other, more Windows Mobiley things.
Which can be translated into something like this that Nokia will ignore the market, the demand and the response and focus only and only on one thing -- Microsoft.
So, should we conclude that Nokia's goal is no more to offer the best products or to protect its developers, or value the work developers have done over ages. Nokia's only goal is to take Microsoft Windows Phone to the market?
I have never seen a more loyal partner before.
