rest in pieces and good ridance. N97 user here, after the 6260 and N80 also. But the n97 i.m writing on now just sucks major balls.
It's the natural thing to happen to Symbian OS , It was the best OS in the Past ,but now it can't Compete with Android or ios or even WP ,I respect that OS but I guess it's EXPIRED!
The most powerful os in the mobile history:'(:( ..a legendary os today...byebye,yet we will miss you symbian.you make people in the world happy:D:)...
Nokia is part of Microsoft or ELop still works in MS ? Why Nokia don't produce phones with MeeGo, Android ? Contract ? Probably exclude only Android, so why Nokia dont have any alternative ? HTC dont have problems with make phones with Android and WP. Samsung dont have problems with makes phones with WP, Android, Bada...So Nokia is now part of MS ?
Hello my dear Symbian lovers. Hallo my experienced ones in mobile smart technology, i salute you!
Is a sad day for us, but we all knew it will come. We all knew that the mighty 808 will be the last one dedicated to the masters of Symbian.
I want to say that The King is not dead. Will leave through our phones (not to forget that will be supported till 2016 if not even further:P). So, we won't see any new Symbian device. But we will see it growing old and by then will be a nice memory. So stick with your legends in your pockets. Nowadays, systems come and go but Symbian will live forever.
We know what Symbian is, we know who complained about it, we know who is cheap in business and who aren't trend sellouts. Symbian is a culture, it is everywhere and was everywhere way before this kidroids were even born. And this cannot be taken away.
Proud owner of 7650, 3650, 6630, 7610, n70, 5230, c5, n8 never died on me. Never lagged on me. And the most reliable smartphones i ever hold. 808 is my next. So it is not dead YET:P
AnonD-104999, 24 Jan 2013While we celebrate the Quad Core CPUs, the Full HD screens, the Project butters, the best thin... moreI am UK and started my Smartfone journey too with Nokia 3650..Maybe others around the world too started off their Smartfone lives with Nokia.
AnonD-1097, 24 Jan 2013Hahahaha. ...funny...iam sure u were a kid in tat time....symbian had everything much before ... moreYou are wrong to my my friend. First camera phone is 7650 and also the first s60 Symbian device. 7610 was the first 1.3 megapixel camera.
While we celebrate the Quad Core CPUs, the Full HD screens, the Project butters, the best thing since the last Iphone and the portico updates, the fact remains(and most Indians would agree with me) that most of my generation users have started their smartphone journey with Nokia starting with their immensely popular 6600 all the way upto their N-series with the amazing cameras upto the N8 and 808 to end it... Will miss it for sure... :(
its realy so bad and sad news.i m also a symbion fan which turn to android but after it i will realy miss nokia and its symbion devices. but after all i want share its advantage and disadvantage. first i found symbion soo limited OS applications so limited and most of paid.but symbion is a afordable choice.
finally,thank you god!we will always remember about our phones restarted in every minut :(

nekko, 24 Jan 2013Imho Symbian lost not because of the opponent is too strong. Rather it lost because it simply ... moreI am exactly thinking the same. Too bad Nokia chose to put an end to Symbian models, cause it had features I OS, Android and WP do not have, like... understandable multitasking, lightweight OS, a good energy management...
It is simple, without Symbian, we would never had know what are smartphones. It was a pioneer.
And now what? Will all smartphones just last one day without charging, will all of them just be connected devices instead of being converged devices, will they all be eye candy focused but lacking features and functions?
I totally dont get it, if symbian is no longer the must OS then why make a really nice phone and use symbian as the OS :/
Just stop being stubborn and go android.
Good Bye Symbian :( You were one of my Favorite OS.
Well i have my Nokia 700 and N82 with me :)
Symbian platform emegerd as the most powerful mobile os.
It is wasteful to compare it with ios or androids.
Every other mobile os has miles to go to evn match its legacy.
Nokia stands as first love with symbian.
And gradually they will do the same with wnds 8 phones in future.
For time being.
For symbian mobiles,
