Nokia announced their new smartphone, the N9, touted be the next iPhone killer*.  I found from their site that it is effectively N9-00 which means we could expect more on the same platform. The current device appears to be promising, with oodles of awesomeness in every aspect. Well, for me its exciting since they are breaking in the Meego platform for the first time for public consumption (There had been news/rumours about N950 but I guess it never got released so far and N900 ran on Maemo, predecessor of Meego.). Nokia’s custom layer above Meego 1.2 is codenamed Harmattan. The good news, therefore, is that Qt is gonna be in spotlight for a while more. 🙂

News here.

*well… i kinda doesn’t like fruit companies much 😛

there are two kinds of designers. the tool experts and the ‘designers’. i have found that some doesnt even try to understand the language of design. tell them whats there to be done in that picture using photoshop. they will do it. draw sketches, explain in detail about the short movie and they will do a draft for you in flash. after few tweaks and changes, your movie is somewhat done and up for release. these guys are called ‘tool experts’. they are also known as ‘freelancers’ in some parts of the world.

the others- precisely the ‘designers’- *think* also. and that makes all the difference.

all designers and some kinda tool experts. but its not true the other way round.
