Well, the article is not conclusive on the fact that Perl would be completely 
eliminated out of use there. For instance:

This is still the plan, but in a statement released internally, Nokia says 
"Within the context of a relatively new platform, Series 60, one 
implementation of a technology concept tool will actually involve the 
evaluation of Python as the scripting language, with the existing potential 
for Perl to be a strong evaluation candidate in a secondary phased approach." 

So there's hope yet. One should note that Perl is available for Linux-based 
cell-phones already, because it can already compile on Linux (naturally). I 
think I recall it was also ported to WinCE and to PalmOS. This makes Simbian 
the last mobile phones OS to adopt it. So much for keeping things
