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.

Even after 4 years from the release of the original iPhone, and competing companies still don't have a competitive product! it shows how lame these people are: they pay no attention to their competition, they pay no attention to online discussions (hey, even spending one hour in a forum would reveal many market trends), they only pay attention to their own hype, fueled by themselves.

If I run Nokia, the first thing I would do in 2000 would be to bring out a fully featured smartphone, complete with support for all standards. Nokia had the infrastructure, back then.

Today, I don't care about Nokia at all. I care about Qt, because in the land of C++ there is no other GUI toolkit that allows me to write quality applications in such a short time.
