Video: iOS vs MeeGo Harmattan, iPhone 4 vs Nokia N950 (dev phone)

Goc found a video comparing iOS powered iPhone 4 with MeeGo-Harmattan on Nokia N950 (dev phone). In this instance they’re comparing mostly the browser.

  • Loading faster than the iPhone 4? Check.
  • Scoring more points on HTML5 test? Check
  • Looking attractive during phone navigation with all that swiping? Check
  • We also see maps and contact list. I like how the little pins drop sequentially on iOS.  That page curl thing looks pretty nifty too. Immediate free turn by turn, offline directions with N950/N9 though.
  • Wow, just looking at the ease and brilliance of swipe in moving between apps. Nice job!
  • Scrolling looks visibly faster on iPhone though in contacts. (I think if you flick swipe quickly, the list should move quite far. It’s not a deal breaker though. Maybe iPhone has a smaller window?). In browsing, the scrolling and pinch and zooming seems identical (which is a good thing since iPhone has one of the smoothest)
