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.

Also the reason the iPhone was even possible is because the technology was available. In all the years before the iPhone release there was no high-quality touchscreen available at a somewhat afordable price.

I think the designers at Apple always wanted to make such a device but the technology just didn't exist. So when it got available they probably had already created most of everything else that was needed.
