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.

Good comment!

But oh well, remember that first update to Windows Phone 7 that did provide no new functionality but broke half of the phones running it? It is not 10 years ago.

Time will tell whether Microsoft really learned their lessons. Nokia takes a very high risk.

I hope the best for them. Competition is always a good thing.
