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.

Most of the features were left out for a reason, which is one thing Apple often excels in.

3G was left out due to battery issues, copy/paste/MMS so they could get it out asap and address them later.


Amazing how much MS and Apple are alike, eh?

yes, it is funny to see someone bash Apple for not having copy-paste in the iPhone (years ago!) while MS dares to release a phone OS without copy-paste just months ago ;)
