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.

Some of us warned Nokia about this ages ago, and many responding told us what a massive market lead Symbian had and that there was nothing to worry about.

Their response? Try and prop up Symbian with Qt. Piss poor. An even poorer response? Adopting Android and especially Windows would kill them off as masters of their own destiny.

They either know how to develop a platform or they will die.
