Nokia booklet 3G - Ubuntu thoughts

Next week task is to try out Nokia booklet 3G with latest Ubuntu.

I just loved hardware of booklet, but totally misaligned display adapter (GMA500) is pain for Linux community. And seriously speaking, why would Nokia support more actively booklet for Linux users? Currently Linux offers quite attractive choice for business users, fast web browsing experience and state of the art email clients along OpenOffice is all we need to run our company.

This remind me last week news, where Kallasvuo seems to be end of line at Nokia. Compare this to Steve J's straight statements against Adobe. Strong vision should carry you long way and pleasing everybody might be possible in Finnish family life, but in business you have to choose your sides. After playing for decades in this business segment, I would say that Nokia should choose following; Linux, Meego and hardware. Drop rest.
