It takes a special phone to be talked about in the tinkering sense years after launch but there’s just nothing like the Nokia N900! It carves such a special place in many Nokia fan’s hearts as somewhere Nokia could have completely dominated had they the courage to go with that platform.

Anyway, I just read a tweet from @stroughtonsmith regarding @winocm’s attempt to port XNU/Darwin/iOS to the Nokia N900. Darwin is the core OS of both Mac OS X and iPhone OS. For now, the graphical UI support is not planned any time soon.

What ifs….imagine a N900 ready to greet iPhone in 2007 and how that could have evolved to 2010 and 2013! Insane power in your pocket, not just raw spec sheet numbers but soo much possibilities. Could that have kept Sammy and FruitCo at bay? Definitely no selling off of major Nokia assets perhaps.
