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.

All smartphones have 3G since 2005 or so. There was no more battery problem than today.This has not changed since 2005.

Actually the chips draw less power today then they did back then.
Most phones back then could barely get more than 2 hours of call time on 3G.

Most people just use GSM and activate 3G when necessary to save battery. If you don't then you should.

I bet you're one of those people who turn off their engine at every traffic light because they think they're saving fuel. A word of advise. STOP. You're actually using up more.

Oh and WTF who even turns 3G on and off manually ?
You know people use these smartphones for important stuff that requires data turned on all the time. Things like getting email pushed to their phone, notifications, twitter, browsing, maps.
Maybe if you're a janitor, you can get away with it, good for you.
Sorry to wake you up, this is not 2005.
