PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia might not be gaining a lot of mindshare in the smartphone world with its Symbian operating system, but fact of the matter is that Symbian is still the most popular smartphone operating system in the world - by a long shot. Today, Nokia officially unveiled three new smartphones that will run the latest iteration of the mobile platform, Symbian^3.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who still likes Symbian. I'll say that some of the UI should be cleaned up, but Symbian can do pretty much everything and has to be one of the most power-efficient mobile oses around (very nice if you actually value battery life on your phone). It might not have a lot of bling, but that's just fine with me. I'll take functionality and performance over bling any day, and I've yet to see any current mobile os that can outdue Symbian for pure functionality and battery life.
