Nokia N9 and MeeGo look great

Engadget has a hands-on with the N9 which runs MeeGo 1.2—and the OS looks amazing. If it really is as responsive as it looks in the videos, I wonder why Nokia decided to kill it and use Windows Phone 7 instead.

The hardware, too, looks great. They’ve done something I wish Apple would do, which is to favor function over form. The iPhone 4’s glass back and hard edges look good, but make the phone less durable and less comfortable to hold and press against your ear. Contrast that with the N9’s unibody polycarbonate shell, which looks to be lighter, more durable, and more comfortable to use.
