ObserverPh, 24 Jan 2013I salute you Symbian! You're taking your rightful place in the Mobile Hall of Fame, being a fo... moreNo. It does not mean Symbian 40. S40 means Series 40. Nokia's own software platform for feature phones and Ashas. It's not for real smartphone.
very sad day bye bye Symbian you were great.
Unfortunately this is it for me and Nokia the day Symbian officially died. :(
Thaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaanks God! Everybody pray. I always wondered when this stupid OS retires.
S in S40 does not mean Symbian. S60 is a variant of Symbian OS. There was also Symbian UIQ and S90(i think).
i still remember my n81-8gb , nokia 5700 xpressmusic and the ever loving nokia 5800 xpressmusic , rest in peace officially (from a s3 (android) owner)
Ok, you guys are not understanding it. 808 is the last symbian that was release. Nokia will no longer manufacture a phone with symbian os amymore.aking the last device/smart phone the pureview. Is it really that hard to understand english?
we can conclude 2 things from this post
1- Nokia can use the same algorithms of Symbian finally on WP OS...we see that on portico update and lumia 510 as their cameras becomes better and better.
2-Nokia try to make 41 mp phones with WP OS but I'm sure that Nokia will never deliver the quality of Symbian by it's WP os in imaging because WP OS is very poor in terms of camera quality
we need to watch what Nokia will do...but they will regret killing this OS...WP and ashas only are so boring...Samsung and HTC and most of companies have a lot of OS's...Nokia has real one only (WP) shame Nokia.
Symbian was the best back in the days......disappointed that we wont be seeing symbian smartphones anymore.....happy to have been a part of the symbian family....i still use it !
I saw this coming some few years back and i even told my friends about it but they all laughed at me. I love Nokia for the big step they took in the mobile industry as at back then. Today the world is moving with the speed of light and it waits for no one... As the saying goes 'pride bigets a fall'. Nokia's refussal to patner wit Android still amazes me... I still got my Nokia N78 here with me and i still love it but the truth is i have to move with pace of the world. How i wish nokia would patner with android then they would be ontop. Goodbye Symbian Os my first love
i used to own 12 models of nokia brand..5 of it were symbian..i do love nokia so much,although im currently using android phone..but i still have c5-00, c5-03,ngage qd,c3-00,c2-00 and 3250 as my collections.. N now,im planning to have lumia 920..gonna miss symbian..
The death of wisdom at Nokia... Alas...
They did not groom the baby, they adopted easier and illiterate method. Just kill own baby and adopt someone else's.
I salute you Symbian! You're taking your rightful place in the Mobile Hall of Fame, being a forefather to the new mobile os's of today. You have done a great job! As long as a Symbian phone is alive, you'll never be forgotten..
Wait a minute, Ashas are S40 right? And S40 means Symbian40 right?? So it is not typically Dead?
Pure view will be part of Nokia lumia windows phone=)=) It is time to be back on top=)
AnonD-1097, 24 Jan 2013Its sad to see the best OS put to sleep. ....I have been a fan of nokia and symbian and will a... moreHahahaha! The best OS between 2002 - 2007 yeah because competition was weak. It died because Nokia didn't update it until too late as an out dated OS cannot compete with modern times.
Hope the lesson has been learnt nokia!
