Just read this news,bloody hell,,Elop puts his boots in with his 2011 burning platform and kills Symbian which he should NOT have done till W7 was established..Then kills Maemo as such then kills Meego Harmattan with just one device now he has effectivly buggered the sales of the 808..The blokes a flipping baffoon..
That said i am still getting an 808. Symbian will not die overnight and just because this news has happened it does not mean the device in your pocket will suddenly stop working.
KF, 23 May 2012FYI belle devices get the most positive reviews from all past symbian devices. hater only have... moreyou missed my point.i dont care what nokia did after the n97..what anna and belle are like. my point is after screwing users with the n97 nokia deserves only bankrupcy Muhahaha
its right decision to buried symbian and continue partner chip with microsoft,lets wait for wp8 it change everything
I can't believe that, it's so stupid to ignore such a big population of Symbian users. They should consider at least keeping the OS as backup plan if windows fails, because I don't see very big income from their flagship OS.
ok,just update your buggy o.s. BELLE...
Ithink they have lumnia others just go hell..
I can't understand Android users of other OS's posting here and rejoicing. How do you benefit from this? Even if you have no intention of using these phones or the OS, having more options available on the market is always better than having fewer.
How many Operating Systems is Nokia gonna try out? What is their standard OS?
Well I was waiting for PureView but with this notice I think that I clear my mind and go for the Galaxy SIII with Android.
It's a shame that Nokia having an excelent phone a the PureView made this decition.

AnonD-5043, 23 May 2012what alovely news, we have been tslking for a long time saying that nokia phones cant handle... moreyou'll be shocked when you will read the 808 PV's review here especially if the same one(s) who review the 700 and 701 review the 808
what alovely news,
we have been tslking for a long time saying that nokia phones cant handle any os rather than the crappy symbian, but no body were listening.
taste this now
what haha, 23 May 2012Remember the people that were scammed with the n97 and n97 mini ? and then the people with ann... moreFYI belle devices get the most positive reviews from all past symbian devices. hater only have one point: the N97, it's soooo old news symbian have changet a lot, I think those who visit tech sites should already know the diference between belle/belle fp1 and the old crappy S60v5
Nokia devices have never been bad. It's the company management that is rotten. Carla or no carla I am still buying 808 pureview. Heck I'll even buy two just for good measure. But I'm actually going to be happy to see nokia burn to ashes for doing such a deservice to loyal symbian and meego fans. As for windows, I would rather go with android
Remember the people that were scammed with the n97 and n97 mini ? and then the people with anna, and belle..ahaha This is God sent..pure epic fail for nokia..i hope they go bankrupt and go back to makign rubber boots :D Only way i would ever buy a nokia after getting ripped off with my n97 is if they made an android phone. otherwise go ahead and file that bankrupcy.
I always felt that if Nokia made 50-60 important apps according to users' requests and votes, then symbian could have survived easily... No doubt about it.
But this move is not done...
Nokia is not doing good by going against the symbian customers.
Its still a stable, safe and useful feature filled OS.
