PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless A perennial question that revolves around Nokia is: why didn't it choose to go with Android to replace Symbian when it decided to kill that as its smartphone operating system in late 2010?

Who cares about 2010?

The question is why they decided to go alone with Maemo 5 and the Nokia N900 rather than with Android.

And that's fairly easy to answer I suppose. They wanted it all / be big in services / growth. Not something they was good at and not something they managed. But they wanted to.

Risk taking for possible award I suppose. But they failed.
