Fully agree! Nokia’s insistence on a closed, controlled platform has stifled it’s growth. It has the huge marketshare in spite of its limitations, not because of them.

Nokia is losing share, and unless they get rolling quickly with Meego or Android (and quit their fascination with Symbian), they’re going to fall behind Android.

Knowing several Finns, my guess is that they will not make a serious push at Meego or Android, will continue to focus on Symbian (their “own” OS), and cede top-spot to Android. And probably Samsung will take over as the largest phone maker in the world, at that point (Samsung being the ultimate mercenary in the phone market - they’ll support any OS out there, if they’re allowed to).

Well, it’s not over, Nokia’s got itself a new CEO today, dude from Canada.
