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.

No need to buy N9 from carriers or Nokia. It'll be available through on-line distributors like Amazon even in US. Full price, but works well with non contract plans.

Yes, it will. But y'know, I did that with the Maemo devices, and I'm kinda tired of being a second class citizen. I used various Microsoft products for two decades, and I'm tired of their arrogant attitude, too. That leaves Apple - no arrogance there! ha! - or Blackberry, which seems dated, or webOS, which is an outside possibility, or... Android.

I wonder why Android owns half the market. Hmmm...
