for me, nokia should buy palm. its the only way to catch up to those bomb cellphone manufacturers like samsung, htc, and sony ericsson. it will be a mix of symbian 9.4 or symbian^3 and webos. so definitely, nokia must buy palm.

The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Now, Nokia has realized that it alone can't do much to stop apple & rim from taking another chunk of its smartphone marketshare. Well, maybe it's time for Nokia to look for help somewhere else. IMO, Palm with its WebOS stands a wayyyyyyy better chance against iphone & blackberry than Nokia's outdated symbian & crappy ovi store. As far as maemo, it'll probaboly come out too late with a lots of bugs to fix. I myself would be much happier if my N97 runs WebOS.

And it was free of operator. On Redcoon they sell at low and acceptable prices.

I buyed the 5630 on July for 206, online, on Redcoon. It's a online store what sells actualy in 8 countries of Europe. They are planning to expand for all Europe and other countries beyond. The next goals for them are USA, UK, France, Sweden, Greece, Turkey, Russia, Japan or Australia.

I have owned several phones from nokia and palm,and have to say....
the idea with a nokia phone with a palm os ...would be the unique and original combination...i tink past headset too serious desings from palm are killing them but nokia fresh and livefull desing are the best so far now ...palm pre its the best os but again the finishig of the unit itself is little short than practical because the qwerty size,the idea is correct,having the experience,i think the could join ti make a new era for palm.

Dani, all of your arguments fail simply because of this

"it didn't on the old phones"
"back when I had my N95 8GB"

How can you disprove something by saying, "well when I was a little lad"?

That's like saying mechanical pencils suck because there weren't any in 1821.

Ovi Store may have 2000 apps, but if you venture to a world where you're not locked and licked into getting apps from one place, you'll see that there are .sis and .sisx applications nearly EVERYWHERE you look.

You tried though, and that's important. I'd give you a dollar, but that wasn't thought up until 1520!

Fast load times, fairly smooth os and touchscreen , nice build, good battery. Performs generally very well. I love the iphone yes and we all know nothing can compete at the moment. Although the samsung jet is a great media device. The appstore takes it all for grabs tho.

Unfair comment though i think

This would be an interesting move for Nokia:
s60 - business users
s40 - "I just want a phone" users
maemo - power users
webOS - "I want something beautiful but useless" users
