Yesterday we lost another soldier of Nokia to Goggle’s Android, Ricky Cadden.
Ricky of Symbian-Guru.com decided to stop blogging and supporting Nokia, This is very sad since he was a great deal of sources and info about Nokia.
I agree with most of the things Ricky writes on hes “fare well” post to Symbian-Guru.com, Nokia is in big trouble in north America and has almost zero market share here (I’m in Vancouver, Canada) and almost zero effort is being put to change that, web services are also kind of a bad things since not much works there (Talking about Ovi, except Ovi files, which I use a lot and I’m sure doesn’t work for someone somewhere else) .
I do hope that the real fight that starts now will change things.
One thing I do not agree at all with Ricky is about the hardware, Nokia is one of the best hardware manufactures in the world. Hardware was never Nokia’s problem, the problem Nokia always had is software, if its web services or cellphone OSs.
Today (and in the next year) with Symbian ^3/4 and Meego, I do hope it will get better , me being a proud owner of a Maemo 5 powered device (N900) I can see its going in the right direction.
Nokia, I still love you
