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.

Funny i see it the other way. They didn't know how to thoroughly milk their customers, but then Apple came along and showed them how it is done.

Yeap you're absolutely right.
If it were up to nokia, today we would be using phones like this http://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_n92-1346.php

The only difference would be that it had a 12 megapixel camera and a higher res. screen and these devices mind you, weren't cheap.
But I guess people like you prefer living in the dark ages, given a chance you would probably be among the crowd wanting to burn Galileo for wanting to show you the truth.

Ah, because spending boatloads of money for a phone which didn't even include a proper keyboard, nor supported basic technology like MMS and 3G in its first iteration, was better...

It doesn't have to be one way or the other, you know ;)
