PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless This is the Nokia I remember. The company just unveiled the Nokia Asha 501, which has a completely new version of the Asha software platform. Fast, responsive, stunningly great and simple hardware, and an unbeatable price ($99!). It borrows a lot from MeeGo on the N9, and overall excites me infinitely more than their Lumia offerings. I want one of these so bad.

Firefox OS?

This sort of hardware might work well with Firefox OS, and then development for it would be easy, but as it is, nobody out of Nokia will ever write an app for these phones.

Anyway, it could well be that no one in Nokia really thinks that it is necessary, or even desirable, to have apps for these phones other than what comes out of the box.

Whatever. Too little, too late. They jumped off the burning platform into a freezing sea, with a Disney pool toy lifeboat.
