PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Well, this certainly isn't particularly surprising. The rising popularity of Android leaves more victims in its wake than just Windows Mobile. Sony Ericsson, one of the major manufacturers of Symbian phones (other than Nokia) has just announced it will pretty much abandon the platform to focus entirely on Android - leaving Nokia as the sole person cheering for team Symbian.

In my opinion, SE has abandoned Symbian years ago, after releasing P990i and M600i. Both smartphones have great hardware, but poor software.

After several buggy firmware update, SE just quickly discontinued this two phones.

Nokia didn't do as bad, even with the N97, but last Nokia could really be compared to actual smartphone.
