PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless How many N9's did Nokia sell, and how many Lumias did Nokia sell? It's an interesting thing to ponder, because estimates by Tomi T. Ahonen seem to indicate that, despite decidedly undermarketing the thing, the N9 faired considerably better in the marketplace than the Lumia did.

I agree that WinP7 would make some sense as an additional platform. The appeal of Android (other than its wild success) is its ability to run Qt apps from the other platforms, at least to some extent, which WinP7 will never do.

But WinP7 as an additional platform makes FAR more sense than Nokia's "all in" strategy.


WP7 is not Nokia's only platform. It replaces Symbian and Harmattan.

Nokia is currently making the money on lower end.

Also refer to the "Qt for next billion" comms out there, and do the math. In a way, WP is an additional, yet high priority platform.

Does this 'Qt for the next billion' thing sport all the nicities that reviewers (and apparently also users) so much like about the N9?

That is not something that has been communicated in public.

Even S40 is getting a limited amount of Swype now (for example in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nokia_Asha_303 ) ...so I guess the fabled "Meltemi" post-S40 OS (supposedly based on N9 Meego) might inherit the nice things of N9, if it exists.

What does "smartphone platform" mean these days?
