    Perhaps it's taking this long because they're trying to get it to work really well in Leopard on a G4 Sawtooth (see pic in linked story). :rolleyes:

    Must be nice having to only support Leopard, from a Mac dev perspective.

    From a user's perspective that stinks since not everyone, or every Mac one person owns, may be running the latest OS from Apple.

    Given that:
    * its work in progress
    * no public test release

    I don't think that matters so much. I'm pretty sure the final 1.0 release will support any Nokia phone that supports Ovi.

    Glad that Nokia have got the Mac version under way.

    Except that Leopard is still a buggy resource hog mess on many PowerPC Macs and Tiger is more stable than Leopard on most Macs because its reached maturity. I'd say that's a good enough reason, unless this isn't going to be released until Leopard 10.5.11 is released!
