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.

R&D doesn't necessary relate to revenue. Apple's R&D is a joke compared to Nokia's and they have very different R&D targets.

That said, Nokia's R&D has gone wild. They have no targets. They lack direction. And as a result they have unaligned results and sometimes incompatible or conflicting results.
