Nokia has been too influential on development for a while. During my
short time at Symbian (contract from September to December 2002) I was
originally put to work on a new API. The project was cancelled
shortly after I got involved because Nokia was pushing Symbian to
adopt a rather poor API they had developed for the same functionality
(or at least that's the story I got).
Any smoothly functioning technology is indistinguishable from a rigged demo.
