    The OS may be done, but the OEMs are still baking their bits in -- a process that is projected to complete in September. Also, Paul mentioned "the earliest we'd see Nokia phones is September/October [...]". I took that to read "see, in stores".

    So, doesn't seem like he's "wrong" yet. May want to wait and see how this unfolds.

    Palm trees--->Tropics--->MANGO!!!

    Yeah baby, YEAH!

  4. nokia will have to give most of the wp7 devices they make for free to make them a hit...if nokia doesn't give up their false pride, very soon they will be out of pride of cellphone manufacturers!!

    to regain their former position, they should keep developing symbian along with maemo and meego, they may use wp7 as well but must go for android as their major smartphone OS..
