PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Well, that escalated quickly. I'm not entirely sure what to make of this, but I think Nokia has just revealed that Symbian is dead - dead as in, no more development. In a comment on a feature request for Symbian in Nokia's bug tracker, the company writes: "Thank you for your improvement ideas, thus Symbian is in maintenance mode and no new features will be implement without extremely good reason (business case). We have written down your ideas for future development if there is a chance that new features will be released." This means Symbian Belle FP2 is the last Symbian version. Odd, because Symbian devices are still being sold.

RE[3]: symbian is dead anyway

Member since:

Qt was only available in specific handsets.

Even when it was, it didn't exactly fit. Apps didn't behave quite right, nor did it communicate with some of the lower-level Symbian APIs used by certain software. QT's integration into Symbian was half-done, and that's being generous.
