PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Well, most of us knew this moment would come, with the only debate left being when this moment would come. Market analyst firm Canalys keeps track of worldwide smartphone shipments, and has concluded that in the fourth quarter of 2010, more Android smartphones were sold than Symbian phones. After a decade of supremacy, the Symbian dominance has been toppled (according to these figures, of course).

Problem is that developing in the so called Symbian C++ is a pain.

Any sane developer will only do it if they are paid for it. If you are developing for fun, Symbian is surely not your target platform.

Sure things are improving with QT, but there is a limited set of devices that can take QT into use, and lets not forget that you are still forced to use Symbian APIs for certain tasks.
