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.

They have been outspent by Apple, Google and Microsoft.


Are you familiar with Nokia? They far outspend Apple, Google and Microsoft. Mobility is their core business. Their R&D department is the size of Apple.

Now, as to how effectively they've spent that money, well, sadly, that's an entirely different question and the current situation probably answers it adequately.
