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 spent USD 150 mn to buy Qt. They are in the process of plowing probably another hundred million into it. They could have done a fork of GNUStep and invested a fraction of that money to have a nice platform with a language and an API that Apple has proven to work marvellously. They would even more or less share the developer base with Apple.
