PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I'm still reeling from the unrivalled epicness and awesomeness that is Sucker Punch in IMAX (just got home - do not miss this film), but now I'm back to boring old reality where we apparently care about pieces of plastic that go beep. So, anywho. The deal between Nokia and Microsoft has many Symbian and Qt developers worry about the future of their platforms. To address these concerns, Purnima Kochikar, vice president of Forum Nokia, has published an open letter describing Nokia's plans for Symbian, Qt, and Java for Series 40 devices. While the letter doesn't deliver any hard dates, the transition phase to Windows Phone 7 is set to 2011/2012.

Did you actually believe that Nokia and other handheld manufacturers would dominate the mobile computing universe?

Did you think the Desktop OS world would just let opportunity drive by and not jump on and retake that domain?

Surely this cannot be.

HP will eventually turn webOS into what they did with HP-UX--a distant memory.
