El Reg writes about Nokia and their widgets, highlighting the issues Nokia has been experiencing lately:
“For some years now, phones have really been computers in disguise, but Nokia has always stressed their utility as appliances. Today it proudly boasts: “This is what computers have become”, and insists its sales staff call the phones “Multimedia Computers”.
But computers are everything mobiles are not and shouldn’t be: cumbersome to carry with you, complicated and unreliable. It’s like Mercedes branding themselves as “The Lada you always wanted.”
