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.

Nokia to pay very little for the O/S per phone - perhaps less than $5 per phone - perhaps even zero for some time/quantity. Squeeze MS hard. ;)

Oh they can do more than that, they should push for a free OS with 50% cut of app revenue.

The problem with using Android is that it only feeds the beast. They should use WP7 to disrupt the market.
