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.

It doesn't mean that it's good. Apple intentionally cripples their devices, and excels in DRM and obsessive control for whatever reason. It doesn't improve usability - on the contrary.

Why anyone needs some screwed iTunes to transfer files from a computer to a device? Why one can't use normal USB connection? Apple think they know why and they think everyone agrees. But I really don't care about crippled devices.
