They don't need to kill and burry Symbian. Why not make a phone with a dual or quad core processor running a symbian os? Symbian's features were great. UI were amazing.

ever since my dad gave me his nokia 6600 when i was in second year high school, i started to love symbian because it has cool apps and you can create and install your theme compared to android which is a bit off. rip symbian you will become a legend....

now days most of a people using android this is totally madness because android os is power hunger they need higher capacity battery if nokia symbian using those kind of battery which normal usage last upto 5 to 7 days in single charge and nokia belle do same kind of process but android require quad core processor to run full hd videos but nokia proved single core processor run full hd smoothly in nokia 808 pureView, I heard that nokia going to stop producing nokia belle phones in future and i am totally disappointed after heard the news. But one thing is not clear why people don't understand nokia belle os and all people go for android, Android is not mobile phone os it's a laptop or desktop os because it uses more power like laptops

1. Please don't stop producing the "stupid" phones with traditional keypads that are priced at less than $50.Some people just want phones for calling/texting. Also, please make Windows phones that are in the same price range as the symbians.

it's all bcz android that even just not to be bought but its a free platform, yeah the THING that its FREE is felt just like eat a nut, even a pack of nuts can be eaten in just only a while.
and for iOS, keep on going, bcz u have a big name that everyone (developer) respect you for the license of a ROYALTY benefits. The musician, artists, producers, love you, love your AGREEMENT. Of course to make some money :) ( i mean lots of money ).
very sad to say goodbye to Symbian, but there are many chance if you can find it way to come back again.
thanks.

isn't elope a mole from microsoft? the mf is taking smartphone some step backword, yes including all the OSes (android, iOs,bb,winphone,etc) are lyk restarting the smartphone again by takin away usable features & bringing em back again & claim credit for the features i.e syncing,bluetooth ftp,expansion slot,explorer,etc. Jobs says this is post-pc era but we still "connect to itunes" or Zune for one problem or the other,during winmo & symbian we less of dat.

I dint understand this statement "it takes 22 months to bring a Symbian product to the market"

What does it mean? Does it mean coming out with new model of the OS or new firmware or version or R&D or making a mobile phone

They should also make an Android flagship...but to say Android is a full copy or copy of Symbian is just as ridiculous as all the isheep claiming it's an IOS rip off.
