i think everyone has seen this coming sooner or later,
its just no use betting on a horse with just three legs. still, it will always be a part of my smartphone experience, starting with ne 7650, 3660, 6600, 6260, N70, N73 and lastly N95 8gb before i transitioned to other will not be missed symbian, but will always be remembered. RIP

thanks to elope for killing smthing very gud, i still have mh n8 along vid htc one x. Android is gud in htc but symbian will always have a special place in my heart as all my family members love nokia from 2600 to n8 its a long journey of like 50 handsets. I cant name each n every one ,but yeah if nokia could have done 3 times better for symbian then what v see in 808 pureview then it could have been a fighter...but these u.s cmpanies just f@@k these european stuff......i really hope one day nokka could stand on its own without takin advantage of msft and start again vid meego,, making the msft its slave yes u read it correct slave..... Because this msft mole elope screwed up the companh tnats whh i switched to android and m kinda ok but nt satisfied from inside, threw away a galaxy s3 as well( crap phone)

Is the Nokia Store also dead? I hope Nokia just remove the S40 and replace it with Symbian in their lower end model.

Symbian OS is too old in current mobile world. Windows phone will be the next one to disappear ?

Rest in peace Symbian. But I'll still be using my Nokia N8 from time to time though I've now moved on to a Nokia Lumia 920. Symbian may have died now but the phones itself like my N8 seems like brand new still. Not even a single scratch from 2 years of use.
