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.

At this point I really don't know what's taking them so long.

Pure speculation: maybe that same question has been asked (given the lag Nokia now has, probably several times) and someone in the upper management decided to "kick the anthill", i.e. shake things up and change direction. You know, like people shifting waiting lines in supermarkets just to have the "fast cashier" and get out as quickly as possible, or like people so adamant on being in the "lane that moves" that they change traffic lanes back and forth. Needless to say, I dearly hate the latter category but that's off-topic.

Some other posters have also hinted at a possible lack of steady direction as the reason.
