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.

Thom, that movie was absolutely terrible. It's the worst movie I've seen since Wing Commander.
Apparently, the entire Internet agrees with me.

IMDB doesn't agree with you.
If you go into such a movie expecting to be amazed by the script then you don't really have a clue.

Been waiting for Sucker Punch with lots of anticipation; the reviews are bad but I'm certain that it's still good enough.

This is still Nokia's strength; they sell one million feature phones every day, and so far, have sold a staggering 600 million (!) Series 40 phones.

Actually, this strength is actually their biggest weakness.
The policy of old school phone makers to keep adding more bling to newer iterations of their phones while barely changing the OS and the experience is their biggest failure. Along comes Apple and shows them how it's done (and now Android and Palm) and the only thing they have left is these sales to keep them afloat.
They were just looking at capitalising on their success, milking the customers. They weren't looking into the future, they were being complacent and these sales are all they have until most people start using smartphones and they're just another company making Windows 7 phones.
They still have time until we get to this point but it's not looking good for them but I'm glad it's happening to them because they kept us back and they took advantage of their customers.
This is their wrong doing, a similar situation to the Music business where the Music Labels are to blame.
