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.

You think Qt slowed them down?

By far it did, and drayned a lot of money in the process.

it would estimate the time taken to make a Qt interface/application set (browser/mail/media player) of comparable quality to the current (gtk) n900 stack, to be around 3 months for a moderate sized team

You dream to much, and the reality says the contrary.

It would be faster, it would be portable and it would be feasible

"It would" differs from "It does", being multiplatform brings zero to the table, it just need to run well on Nokia phones.

The n900 was 5 years late

In the contrary, it was a phone ahead of its time, many many agree with me.
