AnonD-44031, 21 Mar 2012Some reasons why people stay in Symbian probably include the fact that Symbian is a very versa... moreSymbian has a bright future just that it was in slum cause the UI was bad back to Symbian S60V5 and S^3. It was taking some time to revolve and emerge back to market. Just that when the time was going to recover, Elop was hired to make the thing worse than it was before. It is like Nokia is no longer exist and a small No-Kia-Microsoft company was established back in Feb 2011. Everything has been killed before it manages to give back profit. What the point of launching devices but then you’re going to tell the whole world you’re in the process of killing them. Why make them if you want to kill them? It’s like why you have babies but then kill them after 3-4 years?
With the No-Kia-Microsoft, new company they’re starting all over again from the bottom of the line to resurrect the death of Windows Mobile into new soul which is Windows Phone. They can do this but not as primary OS yet. The time is just not right and ripe yet. Meanwhile for Symbian, it still has high market share. Just that a lot fixing needed so that all the developers and consumers return to Symbian. Currently what nokia does is a reborn (WP) and a major fixing (Symbian to Belle). Both are in good progress but why Belle does not receive much ovation as WP does.
First, announcement of Symbian Death and less applications (majorly due to developers not interested cause Symbian was announced to be death). Second, the device itself is hardly to be found in some countries. Third, till now no fully support of Flash except for MeeGo (only in Mozilla). Forth, the marketing of WP too excessively despite the close system, no-USB otg, no microSD expansion slot, no DLNA and limited BT. Last, the Symbian devices are tag at higher price, no display/demo unit available in Nokia stores. People have no idea how different and smooth Belle is from Symbian as they never had the chance to try it hands on.
Ok, this is the highest camera. Maybe in the future my dream phone have 1terabyte internal memory!!
Be Nokia, 20 Mar 2012Is it possible to discontinue symbian after 2016??
I thought it is impossible. Because the fu... moreSome reasons why people stay in Symbian probably include the fact that Symbian is a very versatile OS. It's compatibility among apps for all versions is currently the greatest. Support is certain until 2016 because Nokia already made a contract until that point, but could still be supported for a longer time if the market will still prefer Symbian over WP.
The problem with WP is just like what you said: limited feature sets. Symbian supports far more features than WP.
Yes, the success of WP might just depend on WP8. Nokia already said that they will have a part in coding it. The market is not generally forgiving when it comes to product flaws.
Low-priced WPs have a bigger problem than just the feature sets... They have the middle-range Symbian Anna/Belle phones to compete against, as well as some Android phones.
Unless they can make a WP that equals or even exceeds Symbian, then they will still have to rely on Symbian for the majority of their market share.
Almost end of 2014? If they will release an OS that late, then they should make an OS that exceeds Symbian. Symbian and Android are leading on a race of feature sets and versatility, so if WP wants to go against them, then it should actually rival both OS' strengths.
Honestly IMO, it was better to just stick to Symbian and market it well. I have both Symbian and Android devices. There are things that only Symbian can do, and there are things that only Android can do, but if they take Android's unique strengths and put it into Symbian, and market it just like they are doing with the current Lumia series, then Symbian might just take the lead again. Marketing WP7 is a joke. It doesn't even stand well against iOS, what more Android and Symbian?
~Sorry, it look me long to notice your post. Here are my opinions.

Know your History...The fact that people are able to communicate today is thanks to Nokia.. Although Nokia is as old 1865, lets not even go there..
Nokia was one of the key developers of GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications), the second-generation mobile technology which could carry data as well as voice traffic. NMT (Nordic Mobile Telephony), the world's first mobile telephony standard that enabled international roaming, provided valuable experience for Nokia for its close participation in developing GSM, which was adopted in 1987 as the new European standard for digital mobile technology.
Nokia delivered its first GSM network to the Finnish operator Radiolinja in 1989. The world's first commercial GSM call was made on 1 July 1991 in Helsinki, Finland over a Nokia-supplied network, by then Prime Minister of Finland Harri Holkeri, using a prototype Nokia GSM phone. In 1992, the first GSM phone, the Nokia 1011, was launched. The model number refers to its launch date, 10 November. The Nokia 1011 did not yet employ Nokia's characteristic ringtone, the Nokia tune. It was introduced as a ringtone in 1994 with the Nokia 2100 series.
GSM's high-quality voice calls, easy international roaming and support for new services like text messaging (SMS) laid the foundations for a worldwide boom in mobile phone use. GSM came to dominate the world of mobile telephony in the 1990s, in mid-2008 accounting for about three billion mobile telephone subscribers in the world, with more than 700 mobile operators across 218 countries and territories. New connections are added at the rate of 15 per second, or 1.3 million per day.
