Likes & dislikes: Nokia N9

I’m two minded about the Nokia N9. While a lot of effort went into its design, Nokia itself have given up on the MeeGo operating system in favour of open source Tizen (not forgetting that Symbian is being replaced by Windows Phone).

I received the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 tablet to use over the next few years. It runs Android 3.1 Honeycomb, and if you’re familiar with Android, you know that you need a Google account to access almost everything on it.

I was invited to test drive the new Lexus hybrid vehicle, (launching in August locally) the Lexus CT 200h F Sport.
