PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless The beleaguered handset maker Nokia is setting itself up for what it hopes will be a lean and mean relaunch in the U.S. later this year: it has finally admitted that it will not launch its newest N9 device--the first and possibly only one based on the MeeGo platform--and that it plans to end sales of its Symbian-based devices as well as low-end Series 40 handsets, as it prepares for a generation of devices it is developing using Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 platform.

You know, it's not about the volume. Nokia makes virtually no money from feature phones so keeping around lots of feature phone users is pointless and irresponsible (to their shareholders).

The profit is in the smartphones so this is a good move.
