I love the spat mentioned at the end. I've been using smartphones for a long time now, mainly symbian, and while it might be the most mature platform it's a bugger to work with if you're a programmer and Nokia's take on a "User Interfarce" will p!ss you off very quickly if you're not used to it already. Softkey press bonanza, anyone?
I especially love the comment about Nokia being a hardware company - hee hee! - and the comeback about the american mobe companies is dead on - motorola are renound for making appallingly designed UIs, etc, and the american mobe market stifled itself utterly with the magnificent "technology will win out" business model, instead of europe's more considered collaborative model to get standards out there.
