GSMA, please, stop spreading disinformation.
Symbian works fine on my phone today. And I bet I will work like a charm longer than any cheap samsungs toys.

It's a sad day for Symbian Lovers. IOS and Android can be the king of the chain but neither of the two is a simple to use as Symbian was. RIP...

But 3310 is not Symbian, and Nokia is not yet dead. No need to say goodbye to Nokia.

I have nokia 5233, nokia 701 and sony neo v.
Symbian is very easy to use. Great thing about it was its battery life, i watch 2 to 3 hd movies in single charge on nokia 701.
watching one movie on sony neo v drains whole fully charged battery.

I cant believe its dead now, lack of developers, no bigger inch phones, screen resolution always 360*640.
no good video players for it, which can play all video format.
mx player on sony neo v play almost any video files.

R.I.P symbian.

I hope lumia will replace symbian for what it was in our heart.

Thank you very much Symbian for being part of the smartphone world. I'm really happy to have experienced Symbian and I think that it is the most simple and easy to use OS ever. From Nokia 7650 to my last Nokia N8.. It was a great run.. R.I.P...

It would be a pity to see Nokia disappear totally.
They would have been a lot better off with joining the Android crowd, than with Microsoft.
