Wow, Real Competition for iPhone

Daring Fireball:

"Great-looking hardware and what appears to be a true, modern mobile touchscreen OS. Watch the “Swipe” video, it’s only two minutes long and it’s worth it. They’ve made a phone with zero buttons on the front face."

I'm going with Gruber's write-up only because the Nokia site doesn't have any good, quotable text. If you're a smartphone user, or a technology geek, you need to watch the two-minute video on Nokia's site. This is their N9 smartphone.

Witness the only worthy competitor to the iPhone. Nokia switches to Windows Phone technology after its debut. What a shame. It, and its OS, show beautiful design.
