A few months ago, when the Trojan Horse from Microsoft made the decision to switch Nokia to Windows Phone, I swore that I would never buy another Nokia product. Yesterday was the first time that I put that promise into action. I am now the proud owner of an HTC Wildfire S.

I have never purchased, owned or used anything other than Nokia mobile phones - my very first mobile was a Nokia 1610, and I have had at least a dozen since then. Too bad. The next step will be to replace my partner's current Nokia with something else, and that will be happening before long as well.

About J.A. Watson

I started working with what we called "analog computers" in aircraft maintenance with the United States Air Force in 1970. After finishing military service and returning to university, I was introduced to microprocessors and machine language programming on Intel 4040 processors. After that I also worked on, operated and programmed Digital Equipment Corporation PDP-8, PDP-11 (/45 and /70) and VAX minicomputers. I was involved with the first wave of Unix-based microcomputers, in the early '80s. I have been working in software development, operation, installation and support since then.

  • Yep - I love my current Nokia N900 - but I certainly won't be buying any of their WP7/8 phones. I am still upset that they limited the sale of the N9 to non-american or european countries (presumably to ensure that it's arrival passed unnoticed) then used the casing of the phone for a windows phone version instead, releasing it 6 months later. That's ADMITTING that maemo/meego is better!!!

  • Pretty pathetic to be honest, but this is the sort of thing you get with Linux fanboys. You should get your tin foil hat out. Guessing you've never been in business either. Symbian was no longer a good business decision and nor was meego as it was nowhere near ready for prime time.
