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.

WP7 will die only in case of 2 events:
- WP8 announcement
- MS demise.

MS will never ever let mobile market go away.
It's no doubt WP{whatever} will some day become successfull sharing hefty part of the market.
It's only painfull to see MS raping Europe (once) greatest tech company to provide them an easy path.
