I know that things looked bad at the end of 2010 for Symbian. I have been there and took part in the discussions when the option came up to support Symbian.

But that doesn't mean it had to stay that way. The interest to do Symbian apps was there, it was just the tools that created a barrier.

So, had Nokia stuck to their course, rolled out Symbian with Qt support and then MeeGo with Qt support the developers would have accepted because it was still a significant market share at that time.

Nokia could have fixed the problems with a little patience instead of tossing it all into a dumpster.

Interesting article: "crosoft paid $1bn to help Nokia's risky transition to Windows Phone and continues to support it with platform payments of $250m per quarter - which Nokia admits is slightly higher than the royalties Nokia returns to Microsoft."

Asymco/Horace Dediu did also a quick retro prospect of his Nokia forecast (Feb 2011) vs actual sales:

The graphs support Tomi and also show growth up to Q4 2010 in smartphone sales.
Starting with the Elop effect (Q1 2011) they collapse.

Microsoft is also passe, I remember being in San Francisco in a music venue, going into the men's room and watching "No Microsoft Culture" stickers all over the place.
