Anonymous, 08 Mar 2012Because they are dead. Symbian (nokia) now at 1.5% of the smart phone world as everyone knows... moreThis is US ONLY were symbian has always been irrelevant it's world wide that symbian matters.
friends, wp is exotic but not customizable.android is very customizable.we see different UI available on different devices.so people have plenty of choices.people will get bored of UI after some months and shift to other os when they are using wp.its not the case with android.android is fully customizable.thats the advantage of open source over closed source.we use smartphones everyday and every moment and we need options in our devices and that is where android wins.
OMG! MS lost 1 percent again?? I think they never gonna compete with android in future.
bada 2 is not released in US yet if happend it will take 3rd possition atleast that the quality of bada.
Short and sweat, i hope apple will go bankrupt in 2025 and Nokias investors agree to fire Stephan Elop before 2015
1. You know that you Americans never liked Symbian? Well you never did, you always went for WM or RIM.
2. Apple sucks, what lets me say that, this, iOS has been a lot longer than Android and it owns 46.3% market share where iOS has only a lousy 11-12%.
3. Have you Symbian haters seen Symbian forums? Guess not, there is a new mod of CFW every few weeks, but you apple fankids never understood what sharing means, so i guess you can be the smallest group like everywhere: PCs, Tablets, Phones, TVs and etc.
4. I like this one the best, when the 3G came out every mid-high level symbian device had 3G technology for like since 2006(or 2005), anyway Iphone 3g main opponent was a non touchscreen, Nokia n95 8gb(i still have my N81, while it was only a privet compared to the N95 8gb 1man army) which ran quake 3 and had 8gb of memory, and a real screen 2.8inch(biggest screen on a non touch phone), a real 5mp camera, a real music player(i've compared a friends 4s with my N81 sound quality, N81 wins, so logically in sound quality iPhone 4S

Roy, 08 Mar 2012Sorry I'm a bit naive. But if Apple has 11% of the subscribers (ie. handsets) how can iOS have... moreHi, I think that the 11% is the share of Apple in the mobile market (smartphones and feature phones). The 29% is the share of ios in the smartphone (not feature) market.
So Apple sells 11% of all the phones sold in US and the IOs in the operating system of 29% of all the smartphones sold in the United States.
I want to see how many people uses their phone for calling now... It's not on the chart. The purpose of being a "phone" is long gone... It's just a mini gaming device now.
Just look at symbian rate and now nokia fansboy should understand only Android is the best among iOS.
Roy, 08 Mar 2012Sorry I'm a bit naive. But if Apple has 11% of the subscribers (ie. handsets) how can iOS have... morethe mobile data is for Smart phone & non Smartphone, the OS data is among smartphone.
