PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "There's just one problem, though: the 'nine young investors' don't really exist - according to the last tweet on the @NokiaPlanB Twitter account, it was all a hoax perpetuated by 'one very bored engineer who really likes his iPhone'. Ouch."

Indeed it is.

Additionally, considering that no Windows phones are going to ship on Nokia phones until next year at least, Symbian market share is declining fast and it is simply being put on life support one wonders what is going to be left when this much vaunted 'strategy' actually starts doing something.

Exactly... But I guess the plan is they will get at least a year into this strategy before the results of their marketshare, etc, are revealed, at which point their MeeGo development has been sabotaged and going with WP7 is the route of least resistance. Kind of like `we started these wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, so now we CAN`T just withdraw, it would be admitting failure and that is un-American`.

I hope EU investigates this Elop for conflict of interest, Nokia received funds from EU on understanding they were developing QT as a European mobile app-framework. Then again, they get away with taking German subsidies to only close-shop and relocate to Romania.
