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.

"Dear developer,

please continue developing for our soon-to-be-killed platforms: your application will be useful until our users will migrate to Windows Phone 7; and in that moment you are going to be as forgotten as our platforms... thank you very much and... remember, continue developing for our platforms..."

Am I right?

And since no one really buys Win 7 phones, we, Nokia, will be a shell of former selves by 2014.

And eventually be bought over by Microsoft for a song.
