PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Yesterday I did my last look at the past, about how the decision was made by Nokia to terminate its smartphone OS platforms etc. That is all water under the bridge. There is no going back. Time to look into the future. And while my instant reaction on Twitter may have been a bit hasty and negative about Nokia-Microsoft partnership for smartphones, I have now done my first full, comprehensive analysis of its near term potential. And I am sorry to tell you, I was too optimistic over the weekend. It is far worse. I will go through every relevant part and analyze it. So lets look at 2011 and beyond, for Nokisoft Microkia."

Aside from no multitasking and no native apps, S40 isn't that primitive - have you seen the Nokia C3, for instance? It stacks up quite well with wifi and opera mini (and it's unbelievably cheap)

And I agree. But isn't S40 more or less feels like a stripped down version of Symbian anyway?

And it isn't like featurephones aren't going to stop selling, so what does Nokia have to lose?

TBH, I think it'd be a great idea shift Symbian down into feature phones, which would give the full Symbian experience, rather than just part of it.
