What are you expecting from Nokia’s MeeGo phone in order for it to become successful?

A lot of hopes are resting on MeeGo phone to be instrumental in Nokia’s reclamation of the high end smartphone arena.

There’s the N8, and other rumoured Symbian^3 devices which are awesome in their own right. But some would argue that they are high-mid and not completely and convincingly all high end.

It seems for the best of the very best Nokia will have to offer, the responsibility lies of MeeGo Phone.

What are you expecting from the Nokia MeeGo Phone in order for it to become successful?

I could mention precise hardware specifications/expectations from the OS, but I’ll leave that for the comments. Is there anything in particular that MeeGo phone cannot do without?

I’ll blanket statement with,

“MeeGo phone must be exceptional. Anything other than being an over achiever is a ‘fail’. There isn’t any room for compromises any more now that all eyes are on Nokia to deliver a class leading flagship. One that deserves the flagship name in not just being the best out of your own portfolio but sets the bar for your competition. There can’t be any penny pinching, no leaving out of features to place into a future handset. It must at the very least, be as good as the best currently out there and then some. Don’t just be a jack of all trades master of none, but similarly, you can’t do with only having one strong facet. MeeGo phone should be Nokia’s opportunity to show the rest of the world exactly everything their capable of, strengthen their brand image and justify their position as the number one phone manufacturer in the world”

If MeeGo phone doesn’t deliver to expectations, it’s unfortunately too late for any changes to happen, what with Nokia World 2010 just over a month to go.

Even if Nokia’s MeeGo phone turns out to be amazing, some may still find other excuses as to why it would suck, such as the ecosystem. That in itself would be another post. (As is the possibility of Nokia’s own MeeGo phone being outclassed by another manufacturer)

    I agree with points above, the MeeGo phone should be “phones”!

    It has to pack the best of everything, including the software and deliver it in the two form factors.

    Ultra Slim Candy Bar.
    Slide out (N900 style) OR Pop up (N97 E7? style) Qwerty.

    100% agree with the points above. Take the N8s camera, build a awesome and lag-free UI and give it a nice slim design as the pic at the very beginning or this one (little old but still beautiful)

    For most people design is the most important factor even rating these over functionality (as they can’t tell) – at least that’s what Apple’s success teaches us. From the features I’ll go with Cod3rror adding perfect WIFI sync option with (hopfully) upcoming MeeGo Netbooks/Tablets/HTPCs.

      What i’ve forgotten: You have the ONLY mobile OS (Meamo) that can perfectly be operated without front buttons. Make use of it and design a phone with a frame as small as possible around the display. Using a frame of 5mm top and bottom and 2mm each side you could get a 4″ 16:9 device with a size of 9.9×5.4mm.
      Doesn’t that sound sweet?

      Ovi Music Unlimited would be awesome as well…

    Agree with all the comments, but I do want to talk about the ID color. It should be black, the blackest black, infact “Hotblack Desiato” black. So black it sucks the light into it. In order to be this black it will probably actually have to be very, very dark green, basically assasin-guild green.

    Other colors could include Mid-night Blue and Jaguar Green (British racing green).

      I would love to see ALL of that Jean, but I think Nokia still has an issue with QWERTY keyboard + Xenon sadly. 😦 I don’t think they have found a way to ensure the device isn’t too large yet and that may be the biggest thing holding back such a pairing, which is a shame….I would buy that device without a second thought (And a spare battery or three!!!)
