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.

If you mean the category of "decent on paper but missing the point one aspect of hardware, made unbearable by the OS and alienating future customers" then sure...

And Symbian being in maintenance mode is not different from how it always has been, for released devices - no more features, only bug-fixes.
