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.

But oh wait, most of these issues were addressed in the years following.
On the other hand, 5 years later, Nokia is still selling junk.

Most of the features were left out for a reason, which is one thing Apple often excels in.
3G was left out due to battery issues, copy/paste/MMS so they could get it out asap and address them later.

Even 5 years after Apple launched the first iPhone, we still have to deal with nonsense like that. Apple does not "excels" at leaving out features. They are just slow to implement them. The iPhone is not the second coming of Jesus Christ FFS. When it is Apple, it is "for a reason". When it is not Apple, it is junk. What did they do to your brain?
