Interesting: Video leaked of the Nokia Air line Leaked video of the upcoming Nokia Air line of products has made its way to YouTube.
The "Air" operating system is cloud-based that allows you to have all of your apps and data in the cloud, without needing to actually download the services to the phone.

On the hardware side, the devices are sleek, metallic and the UI itself seems to be based on MeeGo.

There is a tablet, a slider phone, and a full-sized smartphone device.

Check the video here before someone takes it down:

Meh. "Cloud" = "Tie the consumer down as a revenue stream", nothing more. M$ was even brazen enough to admit it.

What, exactly, are you going to do, in an area with no/slow data connection, eh? Your expensive phone is now a glittery paperweight. Useless.

Edit --> That "mini" device looks pretty silly, as well.

+1 on that. PCs with hardwired fiber broadband are not even ready for cloud applications yet...my last company went with cloud-based software for one of their operations. When the internet went down about once every three months, the whole company reverted to the 1960's.

I have a solid 30Mb/s on a cable connection at home, and if I had to rely on streaming or "cloud" for everything I would be one frustrated dude.
Last night I was complaining that I was only getting 500Kb/s
(Sunday evening is probably the most congested time on residential internet)
This "Cloud" stuff is all fine and good but you HAVE to solve the questionable connection problem. There needs to be much, MUCH more caching.
I should be able to que up 3 or 4 movies... "Cache" them on my device and watch them whether I'm connected or not.
Same with documents and other "stuff" on the "Cloud".

And oh, isn't Google doing the same thing with "Chromebooks"?


Oh, Im sorry... Did the middle of my sentence interrupt the beginning of yours?
