PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Buried deep within Nokia's press release about its financial results, there's a line that pretty much signals the end of one of the most popular and successful mobile operating systems in history. With Nokia retiring its use, Symbian is no more.

Actually the last UI version was quite pleasant to use.

Although Symbian C++ was a braindead dialect of C++, coupled with a Frankenstein toolchain, Nokia was getting its act together with PIPS and Qt.

But it was too late to attract developers and the burning platform memo was the death sentence.
