iOS 7 reminded me of the Nokia N950

I have been one of the few people that had a chance to see what an opportunity Nokia missed out on by turning it’s back on the MeeGo operating system and spent a bit of time with the Nokia N950. Only a few hundred of them were made which Nokia lent to developers. When they appear on eBay they currently change hand for 5,000 USD+.

The colour fades in the icons and and the vibrancy struck a chord that reminded me of the design language in the Nokia N950 interface.
