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.

Ultimately, Nokia will have to decide whether they want to be more like RIM/Apple - an integrated hardware/software company, Google - providing a software platform for electronics manufacturers to rally behind, or like Samsung/LG/HTC - making generic phones that compete mainly on brand.

If they stick with integrated hardware/software products I think they need to support them better. Not obsolete them before they're even released. They also should also invest more into making of their user facing software themselves. Most of Meego looks like a smaller version of Ubuntu to me.
