PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Speaking of Nokia - Engadget got their hands on what is supposedly an internal memo sent to Nokia employees by the company's new CEO. It's... Brutal. As in, brutally honest. There's no sugar-coating here, no unicorns, no glitter. "Nokia, our platform is burning." Update: Android is probably out of the question. Will it be Windows Phone 7, after all? Damn; Palm tonight, Nokia Friday - what a week for mobile! Update: The "Communities Dominate Brands" blog published an in-depth analysis of the memo, which claims with sound arguments that it might well be a hoax.

Dear Nokia, your worse misstake was to buy TrollTech and Qt, yes, it is a multiplatform framework, but you don't need multiplatform, you need something it can run on your phones, not on the desktop or whatever crap it means "runs everywhere", the N900 was a kickass product that it didn't rely on Qt, it was just Linux with GTK+ and it was great, porting everything to Qt was a waste of time, and Qt wasn't the wonder you thougth it was cause it was and it is still at these day full of bugs so you have spend a good part of your meego resources in fixing Qt than delivering a product.

So, you are doomed, I'm sorry to say it, but is true, you are not relevant, you are late, and meego is not the answer, is even ready anyway?, I still use a phone of your brand, is not a smartphone but the battery last 4 days, It was nice to meet you Nokia.
