Nokia wants their prototype back too, hope they don’t send California police
Even though I would never pay for or accept a stolen phone and do not agree with Gizmodo’s actions, I think the police action for busting down the editors door and breaking into his house was even more appalling. Really? It is not like this was a drug dealing murderer or rapist and he did not deserve this type of treatment. I know we are all passionate about our smartphones, but it was JUST A PHONE folks and no one is going to die because of it. Similar to the stolen iPhone situation, Nokia has a prototype that was placed into a writer’s hands without authorization too and they want their prototype back.
I did not write a post linking to this “review” before (here it is if you want to check it out) because I don’t think it is a fair evaluation of the device with the software still several months from completion. I hope that Nokia gets the device back and that people take an honest look at the N8 and future devices without basing decisions on the early prototype “reviews”.
