Re: Jolla 2 expectations

To be fair, there's no clear date as-to-when it'll actually be there, it could still be 6-mth (or more) away...

Re: Jolla 2 expectations

You really seem to have some kind of blind hate for MS, that's odd, personally, I like to use/try anything & everything, no ideologies.

Nope, that was already confirmed as mere FUD by evleaks & similar rumour merchants, what they'll do is stick with their universal apps program, which won't be (mostly) realised until ~Win 9 & WP 9,...

Re: Microsoft buying Nokia's devices & services

Re: Microsoft buying Nokia's devices & services

Glad they're finally getting rid of that, looong overdue, tis just a shame X (even better would've been Meltemi or both) didn't come sooner, thanks to Symbian/S30/S40 religion @Nokia.
