Result of primitive OS... Thats why innovative vendor like Samsung left Symbian and even trying to forget it forever lol
Nice move SE and Samsung!

Shah, 02 Oct 2010Yeah ditch the symbian coz it really sux ! Now ANDROID is no.1 ! !Agreed!!! Ditch Nokia and Symbian and buy HTCs, Samsungs with Andriods.
well i have seen this coming. symbian is way too far behind and its only about time that some brave manufacturers will ditch it completely. this is a message that i should ditch nokia as symbian is failing. after almost 10 years, the os has not evolved much and with andrios flourishing i should take the leap forward backward. kudos samsung:)
Samsung just loves releasing phones with different OS's to cater the markets needs. However Samsung is poor on updating/upgrading their mobile OS's.
BrianAW, 02 Oct 2010SymbianOS already be apart of NOKIA..When you want a Symbian phone you sure choose for NOKIA..... moreSE and Ericsson was using symbian before Nokia.Ericsson's first smartphone in 1998. was also first touchscreen smartphone,it was also symbian (UIQ).
Not surprised at all by Samsung's actions since I own a Omnia HD and have not had one single update offered by Samsung.
I have had to rely on hyper X releasing his excellent HX Custom Roms which virtually turn the Omnia HD into a Nokia n97/X6 - SE Vivaz.
Without Hyper X why would you bother owning a Omnia HD.
As for Bada, I have a Wave and yes it is that good, but the main issue is Samsung releasing low end Bada devices when they should be upgrading on the Wave not downgrading as they are doing right now with their new release Bada devices, that to me says that Samsung have no faith in Bada as they had no faith in Symbian S60 v5.
If you own an Omnia HD, my advice is this, go to Google and search for HX Custom Roms, then download the driver package and custom rom, install the custom rom and then happily sign up to Ovi Suite to get Ovi Maps, then install Ovi Store on your Omnia HD and start downloading all the apps you want and at the same time screw both Samsung and Nokia over.
Samsung Omnia HD (running Symbian S60) was released in mid-2009, and it's only *ONE* year old, how they can stop the support for something that's only one year old!
I own the Samsung Galaxy S I9000, what if they stop supporting android next year, no Gingerbread and Honeycomb for us!
SymbianOS already be apart of NOKIA..When you want a Symbian phone you sure choose for NOKIA..Although se also made some Symbian ph0ne but many people most like NOKIA..LOL
Thats no surprise smasumg drops Symbian..because the y just only care for their ba da..but they always dont know what people needed..if people want ba da,better they choose for Android..When people wants Android>>HTC
NOKIA now is running fast on their products step especially SymbianOS..So NOKIA will made more powerful SymbianOS phone..
smasung is not comfident on this stage at all..
the only reason why a lot of you guys think symbian isn't good is because it doesn't have a lot of eye candy. Think carefully about it, nokia smartphones really perform what they're supposed to do. Maybe the 5800 had 9 updates but in the end it did what it had to do much better. Yes they freeze sometimes but hasnt your computer gotten frozen before?
mhl, 02 Oct 2010If only nokia would try developing other platforms such as android. I might buy their handsets... moreoh nokia should never come up with android..already everymonth so many trash android are coming up..include my galaxy s..i am done with my galaxy s..samsung sucks
samsung fault is only doin all this in just a short time. i dont think anything wrong about dropping symbian. android is a better option for its open-sourceness..
All cellphone brands are thinking of way right now to find a cure for Applemania syndrome.If they don't do anything about it, all cellphone brands will close down their handset division cause as we can see Apple is trying to monopolize the market with it's fine strategy.
this is a strategy so it's like saying you either buy an android phone from any of them or buy a Nokia at all which is dedicated to Symbian. I think they don't want any of their mobiles associated with the Finnish company.
Good riddance to Symbian so Symbian's marketshare (errr Nokia) will definitely go down!
