Time to get another (or two) 808 for keeps.
If it's goodbye Symbian, then my 808 will be the last and then it's goodbye Nokia and hello LG or Samsung. I'm not going into all all that WP carp. Not when it has so many restrictions. App development for Symbian will follow lead and then it will be just history. I love the Symbian (primary) and Android (secondary) combination. They compliment each other. But if Symbian will be gone, it might be time to search for an OS that's complimentary to Android.
Looks like iOS is catching up to Symbian. If only they will remove their restrictions, allow a separate menu for apps, add folders, put in a memory card slot and allow sideloading just about anything.
RIP Symbian... so it's WP only after that. I see. Well, we better get the popcorn - brick wall, here comes Nokia...
Symbian will never be forgotten. Nokia 808 is still a standing king of mobile photography. We will see whether the EOS can topple it.
We will miss you, Symbian.
Symbian is not a bad OS, but there are other OSs that perform better
It's just to see that a once dominant OS will put into halt. (sigh) I'd hope that Nokia will continue its R&D on the current flagship.

I like windows phone and planning to buy 925 or 928.
BB 10 os is appealing.

This is very SAD.
SYMBIAN is not bad.
but it needs some polishing.
Nokia u have to focus on devlopment of SYMBIAN.
In years we'll have documentaries detailing the origins of the smartphone and the Symbian platform will be a forgotten keynote in that tale. RIP, Symbian. You connected a very large portion of the world for a very long time.
This is a good move by Nokia. Let the software giant worry about the software so they can focus on the hardware and camera innovations. Nokia is playing their cards correctly here.
Finally they got the game. When will they realize to include Andoird OS in their phones. Like HTC and Samsung have both.
sad..... goodbye Symbian .... u r one of the best I ever work with .... just u fall on the wrong hands ... :(
why nokia whats goes wrong why you have failed to understand the emerging smartphones market needs after spending show much in R&D....now you have nothing to loose..just try to grab frustrated android users and even windows os needs much more futuristic specs..but one day we will see SYMBIAN with a big bang just wait....writing from N70(a Symbian phone)
RIP Symbian. You had good & long run and could have ran if proper care was taken. Its sad .
