Another great, but flawed article by @tomiahonen — Smartphone war is a war over platform, not brand

Whatever Google does on Android, Nokia can rather easily copy onto Symbian/MeeGo.

Tomi is a great read. But he has gotta take those Nokia blinders off. Maybe when he used to work there, it was a great company. Now, they just plain suck at executing.

No, Nokia will not rather easily copy into Symbian/MeeGo of whatever Google may potentially do in ten years to make ten billion. Because Nokia can start today. Right now. By using Android instead of starting from scratch with MeeGo.

(Not making any implications about Symbian; S60 is not even in the same class of device as Android. They are like featurephones+. Nothing wrong with that, btw.)
