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.

Apple's "innovation" doesn't lie in what they omit. The touchscreen is just a different input device, not even necessarily a better one. Better for web browsing, worse for almost everything else. Apple's "innovation" was never about omitting MMS, cut & paste or multitasking, they simply couldn't deliver at the time.

Of course, they needed the same people who queued up for the first gen iPhone to queue up for the 3G version next year, so in that sense their innovation lie in what they omit. They're very good at using their fan base for marketing, so making a first generation product with glaring flaws to go along with the bling is an excellent way to get to sell the same product twice.
