PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Speaking of Nokia - Engadget got their hands on what is supposedly an internal memo sent to Nokia employees by the company's new CEO. It's... Brutal. As in, brutally honest. There's no sugar-coating here, no unicorns, no glitter. "Nokia, our platform is burning." Update: Android is probably out of the question. Will it be Windows Phone 7, after all? Damn; Palm tonight, Nokia Friday - what a week for mobile! Update: The "Communities Dominate Brands" blog published an in-depth analysis of the memo, which claims with sound arguments that it might well be a hoax.

That was exactly my feedback when I used to work there, but hey I was just one more employee.

If the 770 felt like it should have been a phone, the N810 was screaming for a cell radio. (The 800 didn't really scream "cell radio" for me but it was my first after the Palm T5)

Sounds like Jobs on the iPhone.

I think the story went something like presented touch-screen interface on a computer -> Jobs: "make a phone of it."
