Interesting to note that the new Nokias launched only yesterday has no mention in the news section, while the rumours of upcoming iPhone 5 have been published today....

Or phones, which is probably why nobody was interested...
No signature worth mentioning...
I think it is very important for Nokia / Microsoft to succeed. You need 3 ecosystems for a healthy competition.

Whats a Nokia?

What people used to have on their frontdooria in the old days
Oh, you're so ungrateful! Have you forgotten your first phone?
In a million years, when alien archaeologists come to this planet, all that they will find of our civilisation is Nokia 3210s. The hardest substance ever created.
the cynic in me might say there is a very lucrative market, including advertising, in iphone docks and audio hardware that connects to iphones.... Heaven forbid somebody tried to promote an alternative
If the platform succeeds, we'll see more of such devices:
The cynic in you might just be overthinking things.
TBH, having looked at all the Nokia press material, it all seems very much US-focused, though I gather they (or Microsoft) did take some European journalists to New York to cover the event. Whereas the Apple launch is very much a global announcement, with events being held around the world.
Or something like that...
But the info is all over the net, not really an excuse for not covering it, where as the apple event so far is all rumour and heresay, yet still gets coverage. No wonder apple do so well when people are willing to hype it for them...
also worth saying, my orginal post was meant to be tongue in cheek - I think we need a dedicated smiley for that, makes it easier
Surely if it's all over the net, there's less reason for covering it?
