PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless The beleaguered handset maker Nokia is setting itself up for what it hopes will be a lean and mean relaunch in the U.S. later this year: it has finally admitted that it will not launch its newest N9 device--the first and possibly only one based on the MeeGo platform--and that it plans to end sales of its Symbian-based devices as well as low-end Series 40 handsets, as it prepares for a generation of devices it is developing using Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 platform.

I don't understand why Nokia can't have both platforms in the U.S. N9/Meego for the geeks and enthusiasts and WP7 for everyone else.

Because there aren't enough geeks/enthusiasts to make it worthwhile.
