On Thursday (Day Two of Open Mobile Summit) Iain, Sergejs and I had the privilege of an unscheduled Q&A with Nokia’s EVP, MeeGo Computers: Alberto Torres who had just finished a Keynote Speech on “Transforming Nokia” and a panel on “Platforms Vs Networks”.

Link contains a vimeo video and transcript (or attempt of, as room wasn't the best for Q&A).

Cheers

Don't really don't think so
Why did they want to have arm compatibility for meego then?

It's still Intel though. It would really be interesting to see some benchmarks and battery tests, Moorestown versus OMAP and Snapdragon for example.

However, I guess it's really difficult to do this kind of testing, as there are no Moorestown products yet, nor the testing software.

I would really like to see the Moorestown(that i believe is Z6xx series since the May announcement) inside phone, but it wont happen at least with the first Nokia Harmattan/MeeGo phones.

I have been waiting Harmattan before i joined this community and this doesn't make the wait any easier.

trialling a N8.

S. So maybe you won’t be able to talk about N8, but maybe you can talk about what you like and dislike about Nokia N900.

AT: I think that the N900- I’m going to have to go after this one – what I really like about the N900 is so many things. I think the multitasking as an element to the UI is very powerful. I think the browsing experience is excellent. I think the speed that it works is very good. I think there are some things I don’t like so much. The resistive screen, the touch side is not as good as it needs to be. Obviously it will be better in MeeGo. The interface is good but you can get lost occasionally on that. And I think again, it was really developed for technology leaders. We are going to make it (MeeGo) just a touch simpler so your average consumer can find it equally compelling. That has to be the key thing. And then the other bit are two things. Make it more stylish and more beautiful.

Very well said!!!
