A touch-screen phone that runs a more open OS, runs Flash Player Lite, and is carrier independent? Suddenly, that burning desire I have for an Apple iPhone and its closed environment is gone. Engadget Mobile breaks the story on what Nokia’s touch-screen phone during Nokia’s GoPlay festival on London today. File this under “good artists borrow, great artists steal.”
UPDATE: Scratch that, it was a total mock-up done in post-production to emphasize the possibilities of a touch-screen S60. After the idea settled, I really think Apple still trumps Nokia on interface usability and innovation. A Nokia device would still be wide open for development, though (Apple, take note).
