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.

I have to wonder if they feel squeezed from Android and WP7.

Android has the library, WP7 has the slick interface, so who will buy a phone with a lame interface and no library?

MS has an uphill battle just to maintain a foothold but they at least have something to offer.

WP7 has the newest novelty interface on the block at least. We'll see if it's still slick awsomeness once the initial hype blows over. Those Anroid repositories sure are a threat though.

(personally, I rather liked the N900's maemo interface too but UI can be pretty subjective so each to there own)

On the other hand I think Nokia sold like 480 millions phones the last year. So if they had WM7 on 100+ millions of those / year maybe more people would develop for it?

Not that I prefer it either.
