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.

"hose things were left out intentionally.

Yup. To sell you the next iteration.

Nope they (the iPad ones) were left out (and are still missing) due to factors like:

Most of these factors are intertwined or interdependent and they may eventually appear when it's feasible to include them into the product or they've moved up the priority list.

Cramming up more and more features on a device is in the mindset of most handset manufacturers, as if they're competing on who can make the best James Bond gadget. But they're always missing the point, take a look at the outcome of most iPod competitors.

Obviously any company is trying to maximise profit and continuity of a device, Apple is no exception, however their mentality is totally different when it comes to product design and they prove most of you wrong time and time again.
