PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Research In Motion today released the 'gold' build of the BlackBerry 10 developer toolkit. The 'gold' build includes all of the final tools, components, and APIs that will enable developers to create integrated, social and beautiful applications for BlackBerry 10, and have the confidence that their apps will delight customers at launch." Let's hope so. This industry needs more viable players.

Sure, Symbian might be going away, it's not very viable as one of the smartphone platforms of the future - but I take it that's not very crucial to you, if you're willing to consider BB10 or, particularly, an S40 handset. Look at it this way: a Symbian QWERTY handset would give you everything S40 would (after all, Symbian can also run j2me apps), plus multitasking. ;)

I don't think they take the lead role too often in user-facing applications, though...

I still wonder about OSE - from the description, it seems like it might be also the basis for the in-house SE "feature phone" platform.
