In a rather easy to predict move, Nokia announced that it will be dropping support for the Symbian and MeeGo operating systems at the end of this year.

While apps will still be available for download to customers (and developers will still continue to receive revenue for published apps), developers will no longer be able to publish or update apps on the Ovi Store after the January 1 deadline.

While it was only a matter of time before this happened, the pending Microsoft acquisition of Nokia might have something to do with speeding things up.

Thanks, Bilal, for the tip!

Nokia should provide support for the symbian mobiles as the majority of the nokia's mobile are symbian based. May be they can unlock the bootloader.
