iPhone 4 and other mobile developments

iPhone 4 and iOS 4 are launched/released.
My iPhone 3GS experience has improved a lot after the iOS 4 upgrade. At last folders on home screens (much needed!) Generally the interface feels faster, transitions are faster (partly thanks to multitasking) and some flick-induced animations are faster.
Still cannot attach anything to an email after you start writting it! _very_ annoying.
Nokia has announced that will support MeeGo for its top of the range smartphones, the ones competing with iPhone and Android. I think Symbian has lost the train and the wide support of developers, but it will still survive in mid range phones ...for a while. Not sure how good and easy MeeGo development environment is.
I still don't like Apple's dictatoric approach and attempt to control everything you can do with their devices. Still can't store any file I like on the iPhone and send it by email... Cloud approach is good but I may still want to store certain files.
