PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless And the burning platform is still, uhm, burning. "Chief Executive Stephen Elop is placing hopes of a turnaround on a new range of smartphones called Lumia, which use largely untried Microsoft software. But Lumia sales have so far been slow, disappointing investors." It's a shame to see a once proud company in such a downward spiral, but alas, it's the way of business. If you get complacent - as Nokia had gotten - you will fail.

You have summarized it very well. I could not have done better.

They lost a good opportunity on Maemo and MeeGo (N900). And they could no longer develop Symbian to be competitive. I do not think they had much choice but push WP7 at that time.

And... I have a WP7 phone (HTC not Nokia), and I like it a lot.
