Nokia really blew it by not altering their product line or product launches immediately when the iPhone proved itself a dominant placeholder.

They need to realize that network infrastructure is solid enough now that their superior hardware can no longer carry them. They must update their software immediately.

I am honestly surprised they haven't integrated Android yet. Motorola, Samsung, HTC, even Kyocera are using Android. I see them repeating the same error as with the iPhone: Ignoring the very real dominance of a hugely popular change in the cellular handset industry.
