PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Like Research in Motion, Nokia is playing catch-up, software-wise, to the iPhone OS and Android, which is funny in a cruel way because both Nokia and RIM have a far larger market share than both of them. Nokia has put out a preview video of their upcoming N8 smartphone, which runs the latest Symbian version, Symbian^3. Nokia, like RIM, has got work to do.

Why Symbian^3?

As a mobile software developer, I am bewildered by the number of different Symbian platforms that Nokia offers. I look at the vast array and think to myself "why bother?".

Nokia should leave Symbian where it does its best work, low-end feature phones that have limited hardware resources and low user expectations to match. For more powerful phones, there are already so many better and more established choices available.

Anyone else think an N97 built for Android would be the perfect smartphone?
