Phones and Sim's

Follow up to normal day in phone user office, I attach couple of pictures of my phones. I keep swapping my sim between these models and I am quite fluent with adapting my micro-sim back and forth to phones which requires normal sim.

I got this sim cutter and it does nice job. Just keep in mind to insert sim in correct way. In smaller picture there is this 'micro sim adapter', which is not so good. Micro sim keeps popping out of it constantly and I gave up on those.

Nokia vs Android :: SDK battle

I've been doing tryout coding with Android SDK. It was indeed easy and breeze to build things with it and because it's free to use, potential is there. One question which is totally non visible today is Nokia's strategy on software development support on future platforms like microsoft one.

Developers do not pay for SDK's anymore, they choose which is available and technically supported to achieve their goals. I currently run business where money is always an issue and spending 1-15k€ for any microsoft development tool is totally out of question.

I really would like to see some 'analyst' to state something out from this point of view. I thought that Nokia did great with QT, they paid huge money of it and tried to preserve future for developers. Now any developer who should put his efforts to microsoft coding are facing that unlimited fun with license costs and a away to keep it fluent.

But actually, I hope that all of our competitors does windows coding on nokia. That's the way.
