PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I'm still reeling from the unrivalled epicness and awesomeness that is Sucker Punch in IMAX (just got home - do not miss this film), but now I'm back to boring old reality where we apparently care about pieces of plastic that go beep. So, anywho. The deal between Nokia and Microsoft has many Symbian and Qt developers worry about the future of their platforms. To address these concerns, Purnima Kochikar, vice president of Forum Nokia, has published an open letter describing Nokia's plans for Symbian, Qt, and Java for Series 40 devices. While the letter doesn't deliver any hard dates, the transition phase to Windows Phone 7 is set to 2011/2012.

Just look at
http://www.logitel.de/handys/obergruppen/betriebssysteme/windows-ph... (sorry in German)
for example. You will see that new WP7S phones are now selling for 239 Euro WITHOUT a contract.(Look for the UVP prices) Android phones with same hardware specs (sans the 8 or 16GB storage) easily cost 100 or even 200 Euro more.

My guess is because nobody wants them they have to sell them for cheap.

Nokia is so doomed.
