PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless We've got some good news for Symbian, and we've got some bad news. We already had Sony Ericsson abandoning the Symbian platform, but today Samsung joined them in leaving Symbian behind. The good news is that Nokia has released some figures on downloads from its Ovi Store, and it ain't that bad, actually.

Engadget got it wrong as well, turning the closure of some web forum into dropping Symbian.

Maybe Samsung will at some point in the future drop Symbian. I don't know. But what I do know that that was not announced yesterday. All that was announced was the closure of some web services in favor on the upstream one at

Turning that announcement into "Samsung drops Symbian entirely" is wrong and it stays wrong. No matter if some other IT medium called Samsung or not.
If the story was "Samsung closes Symbian forums" it would have been 100% accurate. It could still fuel speculation of dropping Symbian but that speculation wouldn't be turned into a fact.

Oh, if you don't like other posters' tone, you should start to not insult them in the first place.
For example in the comments section of the BlackBerry PlayBook news item, I simply wrote where the term "pad" for those kinds of devices originates from (Star Trek) and out of the blue you called me and everyone else who watches Star Trek "overrated crap"-liking "nerds".
Adjust your tone and I'll adjust mine.
