Interesting linkup can't yet work out what it does for
my shares in NOK, ARMHY etc.

Executive summary: Nokia is licensing the Palm OS so it
can implement the user interface and applications to
run on the Symbian platform. Resulting devices will run
both Palm and Symbian applications.

Opinion: I consider this a positive for Nokia and for
consumers. It's not necessarily a slam dunk -- you can
never predict in advance if marrying two technologies
will: a) work as planned; b) catch on with the consumer
market. If this particular project doesn't work out,
I won't be especially concerned for Nokia's sake. That
they continue to innovate and take some calculated
risks means more than a single success or failure.

I'm still not rushing out to buy 3COM. <wink>
