    So are we going to start to see phones we can choose what os runs on it? So for example, the next smart phone instead of using a hack to open the phone, you can just install the os you want?
    Wouldn't that create compition, and by that I mean better for the consumer?

    OS agnostic phones would be great. :D But a support nightmare. ;)

    Plan B: Google buys Nokia.

    Then it's just Androbian and those Linux fans :B

    Not gone happen! Nokia has way to much money, plus it would be stupid to kill of an open source program

    I only wish that Nokia phone prices weren't so astronomically high here in the states, and that there are more announced Andriod phones. I really don't want to buy an iPhone 3g.

    Nokia is supposedly quiting the modile phone market in a few years. That being the actual devices. They are supposedly going to concentrate only on software. A shame if you ask me. I've had a symbian phone (6120 c) for about a year now and i love it. I'm not going back to a feature phone, ever.

    Pahahahaa!! Goggle buy Nokia, that's a good one! How about Nokia buying Google, that's more likely.
    Seriously people (usually iphone owners) need to educate themselves more, Nokia is absolutely floating with money. This move is designed to strengthen Nokia's grip on the mobile market, simple really.

    And Nokia quitting the mobile market!? Wha wha what? Goodness knows where or who you heard that from but it sounds very false.

    An OS on a phone bah, never needed to, as long as it texts and calls it's fine.

    Eeerm... And how exactly are you going to make calls and send texts without an operating system?

    You do realise that every single 'phone, from the most basic Nokia brick to the iPhone, has an OS - right?

    Yes I do, but they don't have a sophisticated OS, just a basic one. I doubt my phone has something like Symbian on it.
