    Interesting? I have always felt Nokia should have a WM string to their bow, much like Palm does, and this may be the start of that, especially in USA, where Nokia is weak and PalmOS and WM strong, much unlike the rest of the world.

    Dang, if it wernet for the develpoment side of this posting, I might have found something neat to do. Nokia has been in the US for a while, they are really ramping things up though as they are having more carrier issues than they care to let out.

    A little bit of research makes it clear this job posting is related to intellisync, which now belongs to Nokia and is based in Alpharetta. No real news then, as they supported PalmOS and WM for a long time now.
