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.

Ah yes, because in your fantasy-land you're unable to accept that the present situation of Nokia didn't come from, say, the saboteur Canadian - but is the result of wide-scale company dynamics present & quite visible for around half a decade, by now (indeed, it was largely brought by their dysfunctional internal R&D efforts, including those WRT operating systems)

And apparently you also can't see, after all this time, that SGI was brought down by the rise of powerful consumer GPUs and Linux workstations.
