PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Symbian has had a bit of a string of bad news lately, but starting today, things might just start looking up again. Major changes have been announced with regards to the Symbian Foundation and Nokia's involvement with the platform, which all basically come down to this: Nokia is taking over development of the platform, while the Foundation focusses on licensing.

Maemo was shaping up nicely, but got discontinued. Meego for Handset, at this stage, sucks pretty badly. I will be surprised if they can produce a usable Meego phone one year from now. It was just a month ago when it has the ability to make phone calls.

So, I don't think Symbian will be deprecated shortly.
