Nokia N9 is beautiful, flawed, doomed

This is my Next's Vlad Savov reviews the Nokia N9, "one of the most fascinating phones of the last few years." Beautifully designed and toting a linux-based operating system that can actually scroll smoothly, it is a dead end thanks to Nokia's decision to switch to Windows Phone. The Nokia appstore is "Chernobyl" and the phone itself "flawed and doomed", Savov writes, but he still likes it: "the N9 has delivered on Nokia's promises of 2010. It's just a shame that the Nokia of 2011 didn't believe in itself enough to see them through."
