I cried when I heard this. All my phones (N97, 5230, X6, 5800 XpressMusic) all are now dead. Doesn't matter if it hadn't succes. It had a lot of things. Now, that Android rule the world. Symbian was very rich when it appeared. Today I still use my S60v5 phone. It's more simple. Rest in peace, my Symbian!

If there was a symbian running on 1ghz dual cores, 1gb ram, and a good gpu. Atleast. Can compete in mid range.
