Hello, Nokia. You just excluded yourself from the open web. Have fun with that.

So, Nokia chose to effectively change their mobile browser from Firefox—to IE7. When Facebook is saying HTML5 is the future platform, that’s where we’re putting a huge amount of our resources who is going to effectively unwork their iPhone-class mobile website to work on IE7? That would be like discovering that the next version of Windows after Windows 7 is going to be Windows 98. IE7 is a massive step backwards from current mobile browsers—and even when WP7 gets IE9, it still doesn’t compare. It’s ironic justice that Windows Phone users will have to deal with incompatible websites designed primarily for another browser. Hey, Microsoft, how do you like ’dem apples?
