Rafe Blandford, of All About Symbian, is someone I've gotten to know as a result of the Nokia Blogger Relations efforts over the past few years. He's someone whose perspective on what is happening on Nokia Symbian based devices combines the understanding of a user, with the insight of an analyst and the why it does what it does perspective of a programmer/engineer.
Yesterday Rafe posted what I am calling the seminal post about Truphone's expanded array of Nokia handset deployment options, in one concise and extremely well written post.
In a note to Rafe I said, "the post most accurately depicts the choices and options that the user now has, artfully explained the whys and how comes related to both the opportunities and challenges the developer now has before them with the Series 60 platform and its evolution, all while giving the reader a reason to want to use Truphone."As someone who was involved in the architecting of the announcement and scheduling the briefing, and maybe more importantly someone who has been for the last few years intimately involved with both Nokia and Truphone in the way in which the stories get told, it was heartwarming to see someone capture the story and retell it so succinctly.
Give Rafe a read, especially if you use and are interested in the Nokia Symbian platform, as few are in his league when it comes to really "getting it" and then telling it from all perspectives.
