Ice cream sandwich?

Well after posting about a nice WordPress app for the N9 I went a got a new phone.

Yup the Galaxy Nexus.

Is it better? In a lot of ways yes and others no. The build quality of the N9 is great the Samsung not as good, BUT it is still a very well made phone.

The thing is, and I never thought I would say so after using the N9, ICS is a joy to use, better than MeeGo? yes I’m afraid it is in my opinion.

Makes MeeGo feel how Android did with version 1.6 to 2.0 a lot of promise but not nearly ready.

Nokia N9

Well, the Pre 3 and TouchPad are gone HP was just messing their customers around.

However the replacement is a nice new 16GB N9! Yes dead OS walking blah blah blah, but damn what a nice OS it is. It even had an update, not some rubbish minor tat that I seen on the Pre, but one that also included a Swype keyboard

Hardware is nice with only one flaw, a poor cover for the USB port, damn nearly snapped it off! Now it opens with a bit of pressure but I’m sure there will be a few sad owners ( and Lumia 800, it’s sister) who have snapped that door.

Apart from that loving it so far and think Nokia missed a trick not selling it in the UK.

Top piece of exclusive kit in the iPhone / Android crowd.
